Harry announced that he had started four years ago with the aim of recovering from his past, which was sparked off by a discussion with Markle.
“When she said, ‘I think you need to see someone,’ it was in response to an argument we had,” Harry said. “When my mother was taken away from me at the age of 12, I didn’t want the royal life,” he said. “I was so mad at what happened to her and the fact that there was no justice at all, nothing came of it.”
Harry talked about how his trauma manifested itself throughout his life, how he relied on drug and alcohol use to deal with his feelings and come to terms with his mother’s death. “28-32 was a nightmare in my life,” he said. “I wouldn’t drink because I enjoyed it, but because I was trying to mask something.”
As a result, Harry is treated for his PTSD. In front of the camera, he goes through a process called eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), in which patients deal with trauma by remembering a traumatic experience and devoting themselves to a sensory task.

And I’ve never felt their presence more than last year. “
