Buckingham Palace declined to comment Friday in response to a request from NBC News. The entire show series will be featured in a new documentary series executive produced by both Harry and Oprah, “The Me You Can’t See. ”
Harry said he hoped speaking out would help alleviate the social stigma surrounding mental health. He also mentioned that the clicking of cameras and the flash of cameras makes my blood boil. It makes me angry. It takes me back to what happened to my mum, what I experienced as a kid.
Furthermore, he said, “I was so angry with what happened to her, and the fact that there was no justice at all … The same people that chased her through that tunnel photographed her dying on the back seat of that car.”
In the five-part documentary series, Harry is seen undergoing a form of therapy known as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to treat unresolved anxiety stemming from his anger at the media and the death of his mother.
