The 32 -year-old told the Daily Telegraph: My path of dealing with it was fastening my brain in the sand, refusing to ever think about my mum, because why would that promotion?[ I thought] its only going to become you sad, its not going to drawing her back. So from an emotional back, I was like right, dont ever let your spirits are some of anything. So I was a typical 20, 25, 28 -year-old running around get life is great, or life is fine and that was exactly it.
And then[ I] started to have a few dialogues and actually all of a sudden, all of this grief that I have never treated started to come to the forefront and I was like, there existed a lot of stuff here that I need to deal with.
He said he shut down his excitements after his mothers demise in 1997 which had a very serious impact on not only my own personal life but my job as well.
The prince endeavoured assist after two brothers, the Duke of Cambridge, told him: Look, “youve been” need to deal with this. It is not normal to think that good-for-nothing has affected you.

Harry was twice deployed to Afghanistan while serving as an army polouse for 10 years, but he said his mental health issues feelings were no longer related to the conflict. If you look back to the fact I lost my mum at the age of 12, on a sort of public programme of which it was, and then everything else that happens with being in the spotlight, and those kinds of persona and the pressures that come with it and then going to Afghanistan and then … working in the personnel convalescence force with all of the soldiers as well and taking on a lot of their issues.
Anybody would look at that and run OK, there must be something wrong with you, you cant be totally normal, there must be something wrong.
But he said: I is to be able to say its not Afghanistan-related. Im not one of those people that has had to see my best mate blown up next to me and have to apply a tourniquet to both their leg. Luckily, thank God, I wasnt one of those people.

Asked whether he had ever been to see a decrease, he responded: Ive done that a few times, more than a couple of times, but its great.
Because of the process I have been through over the past two-and-a-half years, Ive now been able to take my work seriously, been able to take my private life severely as well, and been able to employed blood, sweat and tears into the things that really make a difference and circumstances that I belief will make a difference to everybody else.
