Prince Harry is set to go deeper into his mental health struggles in a brand new programme with his wife’s friend Oprah Winfrey.
The Duke of Sussex announced on his Archewell site on Wednesday that he’ll follow up his Apple TV+ series, “The Me You Can’t See,” with Oprah in a town hall discussion titled “The Me You Can’t See: A Path Forward.”
The British Prince who has been revealing his struggle with mental health said the follow-up program, which will premiere on Friday, will go even deeper into the stories of the initial series’ subjects and feature experts issuing guidance, so “together they begin to answer the critical question: Where do we go from here?”
The announcement came after Apple released a statement saying its streaming platform saw a 25 per cent increase in viewership as a result of “The Me You Can’t See,” in which Harry underwent an on-camera therapy session to treat PTSD.
The first series saw Prince Harry explaining how his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, was able to overcome the suicidal impulses she experienced when she was pregnant with their first child, Archie.
“The thing that stopped her from seeing it through was how unfair it would be on me after everything that had happened to my mum and to now be put in a position of losing another woman in my life, with a baby inside of her, our baby,” Harry said in “The Me You Can’t See” show.
Prince Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, died in a Paris car crash that happened in 1997 when the Duke of Sussex was 12-year-old.
While Apple is celebrating the growth it saw in viewership, SurgeZirc US reported that Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II is upset with Harry’s oversharing. “Harry’s grandmother has taken this very personally and is deeply upset by what Harry has said, in particular, his comments about Charles’s parenting and suggesting his father knows no better because of how he was brought up. It has been a very upsetting time.”
Prince Harry blasted his father’s parenting, saying, “My father used to say to me when I was younger … ‘Well, it was like that for me, so it’s going to be like that for you.
“That doesn’t make sense, just because you suffered, that doesn’t mean that your kids have to suffer, in fact, quite the opposite. If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences that you had, you can make it right for your kids.”
