What did Harry say?

“…I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.”

Harry, who has son Archie and is expecting a daughter this summer, added: “There is a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on ­anyway.”

Speaking about parenting, Harry said: “It’s really hard to do, but for me it comes down to awareness. Like I never saw it. I never knew about it.

“And then suddenly, I started to piece it all together and go: Okay, so this is where he went to school. This is what happened.

“I know this bit about his life. I also know that’s connected to his parents. So that means that he’s treating me the way that he was treated.

Harry made the decision to step back from royal life to ‘put his family first’ (Credit:

“Which means: ‘How can I change that for my own kids?’ And well, here I am. I’ve now moved my whole family to the US.”
