In a new interview, he emphasizes that he is not a victim
Prince Harry has given another interview to promote his memoir ‘Spare’. Speaking to a trauma expert, the royal now says he’s not a victim.
After giving interviews to CBS and ITV in the wake of the publication of his memoir ‘Spare’, which was released on January 10, 2023, Prince Harry, 38, has once again spoken publicly about his past. With expert Dr. Gabor Maté, 79, wants to work through his childhood trauma during a paid live stream.
Prince Harry: “I’m not a victim”
At the beginning of the conversation, Dr. Maté according to “Express” know whether Prince Harry would describe himself as a victim. “I don’t see myself as a victim, I’m really grateful that I can share my story and help and encourage others,” Duchess Meghan’s husband, 41, promptly replies, adding: “I’m not looking for pity and never have.”
He doesn’t want to make the same “mistakes” as his father, King Charles
The two men then discuss details from Harry’s book about the lack of physical contact with his father during times of extreme pain. King Charles, 74, did not hug Harry when he brought him the news of Princess Diana, † 36, death. “I feel a great responsibility not to share any trauma or negative experiences I had as a child or as a man growing up.”
And further: “There are times when I catch myself doing it like I do [meine Kinder] I should be crushing him with that love, but maybe I’m not.” The “deprivation,” as Dr. Maté calls it, that he’s experienced because of Charles holds him back at times, but he respects Archie in raising his children, 3, and Lilibet, 1, on not making the same “mistakes” as his father.
