In the new documentary series, called ‘The Me You Can’t See’, Harry, other celebrities and people from different walks of life open up about their experiences and discuss the stigma around mental health. The Duke of Sussex has used his platform to speak “his truth” about his time as a member of the Royal Family.

Now British journalist and mental health advocate Bryony Gordon said Harry is undertaking an “important form of duty” by breaking the stigma around mental health issues.

Ms Gordon told People Magazine: “This is a man who, at the age of 12, was sent out to walk behind his mother’s coffin and console the masses outside Kensington Palace.

“I just don’t understand why we’re now angry with him that that might have affected him.”

Royal historian Robert Lacey also added how the world is a “better place” after Harry opened up about his struggles.

But warned the documentary is “another low for the British crown and Royal Family”.

In the documentary, Harry claimed his suffering comes back to the “same people, the same business model and the same industry”.

Harry said: “It all comes back to the same people, the same business model, the same industry.

“My father used to say when I was younger, he used to say to William and I, ‘well it was like that for me so it’s going to be like that for you’. That doesn’t make sense.

“Just because you suffered it doesn’t mean your kids have to ­suffer.

“In fact, it’s the opposite. If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure any negative experiences you had mean you can make it right for your kids.”

Harry also claimed his father, Prince Charles, made him “suffer” as a child.

The Duke insisted he would no longer be “bullied into silence” when he alleged royal life “trapped” and then dumped them.

“Certainly now I will never be bullied into silence,” he told Oprah.

“I thought my family would help, but every single ask, request, warning, whatever it is, just got met with total silence, total neglect.

“We spent four years trying to make it work.

“We did everything that we possibly could to stay there and carry on doing the role and doing the job. But Meghan was struggling.”

He went on: “That feeling of being trapped within the family, there was no option to leave.

“Eventually, when I made that decision for my family, I was still told, ‘You can’t do this’.

“And it’s like, ‘Well how bad does it have to get until I am allowed to do this?’.

“She [Meghan] was going to end her life.

“It shouldn’t have to get to that.”
