Daily US Times: Prince Harry has shared his concern that history was “repeating itself” before he decided to step back from the Royal Family. Harry referred to his mother Diana.
In excerpts of an upcoming TV special with Oprah Winfrey, the Duke of Sussex said he was “relieved” to have his wife Meghan by his side.
Prince Harry referenced his mother’s departure from the Royal Family three decades ago, saying he “can’t begin to imagine” what she went through alone.
The interview will air on 7 March in the US.
But it is not clear when the programme, Oprah With Meghan And Harry: A CBS Primetime Special, will be shown in the UK.
Harry did not speak during the two 30-second clips of the programme released by CBS overnight.
In the excerpts, Harry told Winfrey: “My biggest concern was history repeating itself.”
He added: “For me, I’m just really relieved and happy to be sitting here, talking to you with my wife by my side.”
As an image of a Harry as child with his late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, is shown, he continued: “Because I can’t begin to imagine what it must have been like for her going through this process by herself all those years ago because it has been unbelievably tough for the two of us but at least we had each other.”
Princess Diana relinquished the Her Royal Highness title at the time of her divorce from the Prince of Wales in August 1996. Diana died the following year after a car crash in Paris.
