PropertyA “normal” life after a “royal” life, it seems logical that it does not go smoothly. Prince Harry, 38, did not make it a taboo that he sought the help of a therapist for this. It made him realize that he is responsible for choosing the way he leads his life after leaving the royal family. “I went through my life thinking there was only one way to live.”
“The therapy opened my eyes from the moment I started,” Harry began. In the conversation with the “Masters of Scale Summit,” the Prince made himself especially vulnerable. “I went through life thinking that there was only one way to live. Therapy punctured that bubble. When I found my way into training, the next bubble burst. Suddenly I realized that I now understand my own value. I gained confidence again, which I never expected to get again.” .
That enlightening view of life came as a complete surprise to Prince Harry. In fact, according to him, he had never heard of the treatment within the royal family or during his military service. Doron Webber, director of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, tweeted: “Prince Harry says he hasn’t heard of the words ‘treatment’ or training” during his time in the Royal Family and his 10 years in the military. Then his blindfolds fell and his life changed.”

Open up about mental health
Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have always been very open about the importance of mental health. In 2017, the prince shared with The Telegraph how difficult it was for his mother, Princess Diana, to die. “I can safely say that losing my mother at the age of twelve has had a serious impact on me. I have shut down all of my feelings for the past twenty years, which have had an effect on my private life and my work life. On several occasions, I have been on the verge of a complete breakdown. It was the accumulated grief And various lies strike me from all angles.” Meghan has also previously spoken of the huge emotional impact she experienced when she suddenly ended up in the royal family. “I didn’t want to live anymore,” she told Oprah Winfrey.
