Prince Harry, who together with his brother William has been outspoke about the impact the death of his mother has had on him, revealed how he dealt with such a tragic loss.

“And it was only three years ago from the support around and my brother as well that I realised it wasn’t normal to deal with this, and to think nothing has affected you.

“My way of dealing with it was sticking my head in the sand and not thinking about my mum because why would that help?

“It’s going to make me sad and not bring her back.” 

Prince Harry, who was already dating Meghan when he opened up about his mental state to Ms Gordon, also revealed how tackling the reality of Princess Diana’s death helped him improving his personal and work life.

He said: “Yes, I am Prince, I have a house over my head, I have security, I have a car, I have a job that I absolutely love, but previous to that I had a job that I loved too.

“But because of the process I have been through over the past two or three years I have now been able to take my work seriously and my private life seriously too and put blood, sweat and tears into the things that I think really matter and will make a difference to everyone else.

“Things like Invictus Games wouldn’t have come off the ground if I hadn’t have dealt with all that stuff beforehand.”
