Prince Harry’s ‘intimate conversation’ felt more like watching a therapy session – and it cost us £17.99 each | UK News

It feels like we’ve just sat through one of Prince Harry’s therapy sessions.

More than that, we’ve all just paid £17.99 for the privilege, albeit with a free copy of Spare thrown in.

This was billed as an “intimate conversation” and that’s exactly what we got, over an hour of Prince Harry talking us through his personal trauma and healing.

This was not a conversation that threw hand grenades at the royal family, there was no mention of Prince William or Camilla.

Nothing was said about the coronation and whether he’ll come, or how he feels about being evicted from Frogmore Cottage.

This was Harry discussing how he dealt with the trauma of personal loss, how therapy, nature, drugs and Meghan helped with his healing.

No major revelations, but we learnt how he was scared therapy might make him lose memories of his mother.

How he grew up with a sense of numbness when it came to his feelings. How he’s “lost a lot” moving to the US, but is “grateful” his children are growing up away from the institution he grew up within.

Copies of the newly released autobiography from the Duke of Sussex, titled Spare, on display at Waterstones Piccadilly, London, as it goes on sale to the public for the first time. Picture date: Tuesday January 10, 2023.

And once again, Harry draws a stark comparison between his parenting style “smothering them with love”, and that of his father.

The palace will have been braced for bombshells, and while Harry did a lot of talking, unlike his previous interviews, he did no damage.

No doubt there will be a sigh of relief from both the King and the Prince of Wales.

What we do know is whenever Harry talks, people will listen.

He speaks from the heart and doesn’t hold back. His fans will have loved every minute of this conversation.

It’s unlikely to have changed the minds of his critics, but they probably won’t have spent the £17.99 to find out.
