Prince Harry Says He Shut Down His Emotions Following Diana's Death

In a revealing interview, Prince Harry says that he sought counseling four years ago to deal with the grief of losing his mother, Princess Diana.

Harry tells The Telegraph that the loss of his mother at such a young age had led to "total chaos."

"I can safely say that losing my mum at the age of 12 and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but also my work as well," he says.

"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. I was like, 'there's actually a lot of stuff here I need to deal with.'"

Harry says he resorted to professional help at the age of 28 after enduring "two years of total chaos. I didn't know what was wrong with me."

"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."

He says the pressure of being in the public caused him to be "very close to a complete breakdown on numerous occasions."

"But Because of the process I have been through over the past two-and-a-half years, I've now been able to take my work seriously, been able to take my private life seriously as well, and been able to put blood, sweat and tears into the things that really make a difference and things that I think will make a difference to everybody else."
