Harry and William walked behind their mother Diana’s coffin at her funeral. Indeed, the experience clearly had a huge impact on a young Harry. “My mother had just died, and I had to walk a long way behind her coffin, surrounded by thousands of people watching me while millions more did on television,” he said to Newsweek in 2017.

Harry continued to recount that tragic day in 1997. “I don’t think any child should be asked to do that, under any circumstances. I don’t think it would happen today.” And the prince continued to struggle with the loss of his mother as the years ticked by.

Harry told The Telegraph in 2017 that he had two years of “total chaos.” He added that he even came “very close to a complete breakdown on numerous occasions.” However, his brother William and others encouraged him to get professional help.
