Prince Harry admitted that he had sought therapy years after the tragic death of his mother Princess Diana.

Prince Harry had decided to talk about his past in the hope it would encourage people to break the stigma surrounding mental health issues, according to an article on the Telegraph.

The Princess of Wales died in August 1997, however, after 20 years, Meghan Markle's boyfriend stated he had experienced two years of "total chaos" that almost went into a "complete breakdown."

He said he had to deal with his sadness and frustration by not thinking about his mom.

The youngest son of Prince Charles said that he was now in a "good place". He also added that boxing had helped him let out his aggression.

Prince Harry decided to step out and confess about his past so that he can break the stigma about mental health problems.

Because of this, he has established the Heads Together mental health campaign together with his brother Prince William and his wife the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton.

"I can safely say that losing my mum at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but my work as well," His Royal Highness Prince Harry stated. "I have probably been very close to a complete breakdown on numerous occasions when all sorts of grief and all sorts of lies and misconceptions and everything are coming to you from every angle."

This is something rare especially since he is part of an institution that practices the British stiff-upper-lip approach. This means that they have to remain unemotional even in times of misfortune.

Prince Harry is just one of the fewest high profile people in the UK who talks about his personal issues and mental concerns. His royal, lavish lifestyle has not kept him away from mental issues.

With this, he hopes to break the belief that involves mental health.
