Celebrity News: This year marks the 20th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana and her youngest son recalls how difficult it was to assume the absence of her mother.
The loss of a mother no doubt in a great emotional blow that sometimes many people fail to overcome or have to spend many years to achieve inner peace and that was what lived the princes William and Harry to learn that his mother, Lady Di, had lost his life in a tragic accident.
In a new interview broadcast on Forces TV, Harry confessed, “If you lose your mum at the age of 12 you have got to deal with it. The idea that 20 years later I still hadn’t really… that 15, 17 years later I still hadn’t dealt with it. Afghan was the moment where I was like, ‘Right, deal with it.”
Recall that William’s younger brother spent 10 years working in the British army and traveled twice to fight in the front line to Afghanistan. During this broadcast, Harry said that in this period he felt “impotent” on more than one occasion.
Recall that the war marked so deeply the youngest son of Princess Diana that it decided to create Invictus Games, an annual multi-sport tournament for the personnel and the injured veterans of the armed forces.
“The passage through Invictus and talking to all the guys about their problems really has healed me,” added the 32-year-old Prince.
Although it is very rare that Harry talks about his personal life, this is not the first time he opens his heart after the death of his mother. Last April, the prince acknowledged in an interview for The Telegraph newspaper that he lived a period of “total chaos” and that he was until the age of 28 when he dared to seek help to overcome the loss of his mother.
