Watch: Prince Harry opens up about pain of losing mother Diana in new video

Prince Harry has opened up on the pain of losing his mother Diana, Princess of Wales, when he was just 12.

The Duke of Sussex spoke candidly of his struggles in a new video for his role as global ambassador for Scotty’s Little Soldiers - a charity that supports young people who have lost parents in the military.

In the video, released on Thursday (27 June), Harry said: “It’s so easy as a kid to think or convince yourself….you convince yourself that the person you’ve lost wants you, or you need to be sad for as long as possible to prove to them that they are missed. But then there’s this realization of, no, they must want me to be happy.”
