Prince Harry blames the UK press for “destroying his mental health”

He's not holding back.


Prince Harry probably expected his marriage to former Suits star Meghan Markle to place them under the spotlight, but he hardly ever believed that their lives will become number one story for the tabloids and the magazines even nowadays.

It all started with him and Meghan stepping down from the royal duties and leaving Britain, probably for good judging from the events which followed after the so called Megxit, and continued with the now infamous Oprah interview. However, no matter how the couple’s public appearances and openness about the life as royals ‘enrages’ some members of the British royalty, The Sussexes don’t seem to be planning on staying silent, which is exactly what Meghan spoke about with Oprah.

The world expected for Harry and his brother and father to get on good terms after they met at Prince Philip’s funeral, but that didn’t happen as Harry felt ambushed and refused to discuss any matters without his wife there.

Now, as Harry and Meghan signed contracts with Netflix and Spotify and Harry started working as Chief Impact Officer for mental health service start up ‘Better Up,’ we will be hearing from the two even more often than we expected.

Harry, for example, opened his soul to host and comedian James Corden as the two took an open-top bus ride around LA back in February and revealed who it is to blame for destroying his mental health.

“[The British press] was destroying my mental health,” he said.

“This is toxic. So, I did what any good husband and what any father would do. It’s like I need to get my family out of here. But, we never walked away, and as far as I’m concerned whatever decisions are made on that side, I will never walk away. I will always be contributing, but my life is public service so wherever I am in the world it’s always going to be the same thing.”

Further, he added how he doesn’t feel that he and Meghan really walked away, but on the contrary. “It was never walking away. It was stepping back rather than stepping down. It was a really difficult environment.”

Harry isn’t fond of the press and the tabloids as he still believes it was them who contributed to his mother’s death.
