The death of a family member can have serious consequences for anyone, whether rich or poor. And recently, even a prince admitted that he had to seek treatment to overcome his mother’s death. On Monday, Prince Harry said that after the death of his mother, Princess Diana, he spent years in “total chaos.”
And only 20 years after Diana’s death he sought counseling to treat the pain and emptiness that filled him.
“My way of dealing with it was sticking my head in the sand. Refusing to ever think about my mum because why would that help? It’s only going to make you sad. It’s not going to bring her back. From an emotional side, I was like ‘right, don’t ever let your emotions be part of anything.’ So, I was a typical sort of 20-, 25-, 28-year-old running around going ‘life is great, or life is fine.’ Then I started to have a few conversations and then, all of a sudden, all of this grief that I’d never processed came to the forefront,” he said in an interview.
Prince William tried to help him several times, but he always refused until the pain became unbearable and he sought help, and after a long treatment, he managed to overcome his mother’s death.
According to him, today he can focus on his work and his future. If even a prince needs help, what about us?
