Prince Harry lets the world in on a new revelation

There have been many revelations that have come out of Prince Harry's book Spare and the many interviews he has given. The latest comes from someone in the medical field and is related to the mental health of the second-born son of King Charles III. Deadline reported on March 5 that during a live stream from the California home he shares with his wife Duchess Meghan Markle the Duke of Sussex was given a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).

The fireside chat, filmed at Harry’s Montecito home, was streamed to the US, Canada and the UK, where viewers could pay $25 to watch, tickets including a copy of his recently published memoir.

This news was delivered by Dr. Gabor Mate the Canadian therapist who s the author of The Myth of Normal Trauma Illness and Healing in a Toxic Culture who says he made several diagnoses for Harry but only spoke about this one. It's not clear why Prince Harry wanted something so personal revealed to the world or why he charged for it but it was done.

"Whether you like it or not, I have diagnosed you with ADD. You can agree or disagree,”“I don’t see it as a disease. I see it as a normal response to abnormal stress.”

What will Harry do now?

When Prince Harry asked what his next step should be the doctor responded that he could do whatever he wanted with the diagnosis. Harry then discussed how he always felt like he was out of place in the royal family.

“I certainly have felt throughout my life, from my younger years, that I always felt slightly different to the rest of my family. I felt strange being in this container. And I know that my mum felt the same.”

Princess Diana had said she felt like she was in a fishbowl while living with the Royals and now Prince Harry is saying he felt he was in a container. Now that this has been revealed it will be interesting to see what Harry does with it. He may continue therapy and or obtain medication or perhaps he will do nothing at all.
