Quick, someone please get Prince Harry a black sheep sweater, because he’s feeling very connected to his late mother, Princess Diana, especially when it comes to being the proverbial black sheep of the royal fam.
In his very revealing new sit-down with Gabor Maté, MD, whose expertise is in trauma, addiction, stress, and childhood development, Harry opened up about a whole multitude of things, including being the Princess Diana of the modern monarchy.
“Certainly throughout my life, throughout my younger years, I always felt slightly different to the rest of my family,” he said (per People). “I felt strange being in this container, and I know that my mum felt the same. It makes sense to me—it didn’t make sense at the time—I felt as though my body was in there but my head was out, but sometimes it was vice versa. The times that I ventured towards being myself, being my authentic true self, whether it was through media or family or whatever it was, it was almost like, ‘Don’t be yourself, come back to what you’re expected to be,’ if that makes sense.”
And like his late mom, Harry sees public service as his number one calling in life. To that end, he took the chat with Dr. Maté as an opportunity to make it clear that his service-first mindset is actually why he wrote his memoir, Spare—in spite of any rumors and/or speculation about other potential motives.
“I really hope, and I hoped right from the beginning, when I turned around to the people that were helping me write this book, I said, ‘I want this to be an act of service, it needs to be,’ because I know important it is, because you’re almost giving permission for people to talk about their own stuff and be their own selves, and society doesn’t really help us,” he explained. “And I would say even more so within my family because of the expectations and because of how you’re cast as individuals.”
What’s the closest thing to a revenge dress that would fall in Prince Harry’s comfort zone? Asking for a friend.2023-03-05T20:32:56Z dg43tfdfdgfd
