Prince Harry, now the Duke of Sussex, was only 12 years old when his mother tragically died in a car accident. He buried his grief for nearly two decades, until, at age 28, it bubbled to the surface. In a 2017 interview with The Telegraph, he explained that after shutting
down his emotions for so long, he “was on the verge of punching someone,” and experiencing anxiety at royal engagements. He now hopes that by being open about his past he can help shed some of the stigma that exists around mental health issues.
