Prince Harry hits out at Royal Family in latest Netflix documentary, claims was 'in foetal position' after mum Diana's death

Prince Harry is once again seemingly hitting out at his family via Netflix, this time claiming he didn't have a proper support network after Princess Diana's death.

In his new show, Heart of Invictus, the Duke claimed he was left "lying in the foetal position" and "bouncing off walls" after he finished his tour of Afghanistan in 2011.

The new show looks at injured and ill military veterans who take part in the Invictus Games.

"I can only speak from my personal experience - my tour of Afghanistan in 2011 flying Apaches," he said.

"Somewhere after that there was an unravelling and the trigger to me was returning from Afghanistan. But the stuff that was coming up was from 1997 - from the age of 12.

"Losing my mum at such a young age, the trauma that I had, I was never really aware of. But then when it all came fizzing out I was bouncing off the walls.

"I was thinking what is going on here - now I'm feeling everything as opposed to being numb. The biggest struggle for me was that no one around me could really help.

"I didn't have that support structure, that network or that expert advice to identify what was actually going on with me. Unfortunately like most of us, the first time you really consider therapy is when you're lying on the floor in the foetal position probably wishing that you dealt with some of this stuff previously."

Harry's comments come on the 26th anniversary of the death of his mother.

Diana died on August 31, 1997 after a car crash in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris while the driver was fleeing the paparazzi.

The documentary also reveals insight into private conversations Harry has had with his son Archie about what his future holds.

Speaking to athletes at the Invictus Games, Harry said he wanted his son's character to be his defining trait.

"When I talk to my son Archie about what he wants to be when he grows up, some days it's an astronaut, other days it's a pilot," he said.

"But what I remind him is no matter what you want to be when you grow up, it's your character that matters most.

"And nothing would make his mum and me prouder than to see him have the character of what we see before us today - you."

Heart of Invictus has been released on Netflix in the lead up to the 2023 Invictus Games in Düsseldorf, Germany.
