Prince Harry wants to ‘break the cycle’ of ‘pain and suffering’ of his childhood

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expecting their second child and are parents to two-year-old son Archie. Speaking on the podcast Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard, Harry described his life as “a mixture between The Truman Show and being in a zoo”.

He added: “There is no blame. I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody.

“But certainly when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.

“It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway so we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say ‘you know what, that happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you’.”

Harry went on to describe how his father Prince Charles “treated me the way he was treated”.

He said: “It’s hard to do but for me it comes down to awareness.

“I never saw it, I never knew about it, and then suddenly I started to piece it together and go ‘OK, so this is where he went to school, this is what happened, I know this about his life, I also know that is connected to his parents so that means he’s treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids?’”

Since stepping back from their royal duties, Harry and Meghan relocated to the US last year with Archie.

The Duke explained how he made the decision to move across the Atlantic for his family and mental health.

He said: “And here I am, I moved my whole family to the US, that wasn’t the plan but sometimes you’ve got make decisions and put your family first and put your mental health first.”

Harry also revealed how he met Meghan in a supermarket when the couple were dating and they pretended not to know each other.

He explained: “The first time Meghan and I met up for her to come and stay with me, we met up in a supermarket in London, pretending as though we didn’t know each other, texting each other from the other ends of the aisle.

“There were people looking at me, giving me all of these weird looks, coming up to say hi or whatever but there I am texting her whilst we’re shopping, asking if this is the right thing and she’s replying ‘No, you want the parchment paper’.”

But now Harry is in Los Angeles, he feels different and more free.

He added: “So living here now I can actually lift my head and I feel different, my shoulders have dropped, so have hers, you can walk around feeling a little bit more free, I can take Archie on the back of my bicycle, I would never have had the chance to do that.”
