Prince Harry Continues His Philanthropic Work

Hard Words but Right Choice

Though, what many may see as a stab in the back of the royal family, royal historian Robert Lacey thinks otherwise. In his interview with PEOPLE, he states that though this may be hard for the royal family, the world needed to hear what Prince Harry had to say. Similarly, British journalist and mental health advocate Bryony Gordon backs Lacey as she also praises Prince Harry for breaking the stigma surrounding mental illness.

Not-So-Great Father-Son Relationship

The docuseries also gave viewers an inside look at life as a royal and the estranged relationship between Prince Harry and Prince Charles. The former royal states that his father used to tell him that he would have to go through the same difficulties as he dealt with when he (Prince Charles) was a child. Prince Harry goes on to mention how confusing it felt since a parent usually tries to make it better for their children.
