Harry was angry at Brits for mourning mum Diana as they ‘never even met her’
May 21, 2021
Prince Harry revealed that he was "angry" at the British public for mourning the Princess of Wales because they "never even met her."
The Duke of Sussex opened up about the pain of losing his mum when he was just 12-years-old in his new documentary series called 'The Me You Can't See' on Apple TV.
During the interview, the prince opened up about traumatic memories of his childhood, including being photographed with his brother, uncle and grandfather walking behind Princess Diana's coffin at her funeral back in 1997.
The 36-year-old expressed his frustration that the country grieved for his mother when they didn't know her personally.
Speaking to Oprah Winfrey, he said: "When my mum was taken away from me at the age of 12, I didn't want the life, sharing the grief of my mother's death with the world.
"For me, the thing I remember the most was the sound of the horses' hooves going along the Mall.
"It was like I was outside of my body and just walking along doing what was expected of me.
"(I was) showing one-tenth of the emotion that everybody else was showing: This was my mum – you never even met her.
"I was so angry with what happened to her and that there was no justice, at all. Nothing came from that."
In the series which focuses on mental health, Harry revealed that the loss of his mother caused him to suffer anxiety and severe panic attacks from ages 28 to 32.
He claims that whenever he thinks of memories with Princess Diana, he just remembers being chased by cameras while in the car with her and Prince William.

Discussing his memories of Diana, he said: "Unfortunately when I think about my mum, the first thing that comes to mind is always the same one over and over again.
"Strapped in the car, seat belt across with my brother in the car as well and mother driving and being chased by three, four, five mopeds with paparazzi on.
"She was always unable to drive because of the tears. There was no protection."
