Prince Harry's Addiction

The Duke of Sussex said he was willing to take drugs while struggling to process his mom's death because he was "trying to mask something."

The 36-year-old described suppressing the trauma he experienced for years by doing alcohol and drugs to get rid of the pain.

Prince Harry admits that from ages 28 to 32, he experienced four years of chaos before finally getting therapy thanks to the advice of his wife, Meghan Markle.

"I was willing to drink. I was willing to take drugs. I was willing to do the things that made me feel less like I was feeling."

The dad of Archie Harrison further added, "But I slowly became aware that, okay, I wasn't drinking Monday to Friday but I would probably drink a week's worth in one day on a Friday or a Saturday night."

The Duke also revealed that he would find himself drinking not because for the enjoyment of it but because of masking something.

He said that the trauma was not something he meant to hide as he was completely unaware of it "which was my brain telling me that I'm in a fight."

In "The Me You Can't See," which has a release date of May 21, Prince Harry explained, "I was so angry with what happened to her and the fact there was no justice at all. Nothing came from that."
