The Sun reports that Harry and Meghan, 38, appeared at an event in Florida, where he gave an emotional speech to a crowd gathered at a function hosted by banking firm JP Morgan in Miami.

After Meghan gave a short address, where she spoke about her ‘love for her husband’, Harry took to the stage.

In his speech, he said that he had started to see a therapist to help with the ‘trauma’ of losing his mother, Princess Diana, when he was just 12-years-old in 1997.

A source told the newspaper: “He talked about how the events of his childhood affected him and that he has been talking to a mental health professional.

“Harry also touched on Megxit, saying while it has been very difficult on him and Meghan, he does not regret their decision to step down as senior royals because he wants to protect his family.

“He does not want Meghan and their son Archie to go through what he did as a child.”

Harry previously said in 2017 that he had sought the help of a therapist at the age of 28 after ‘two years of chaos’.

In the BBC One documentary – Diana, 7 Days – aired around the 20th anniversary of her death, Harry and his brother, Prince William, explained to viewers how they found out about their mother’s death and how it affected them.

William said: “I remember just feeling completely numb, disorientated, dizzy.

“You feel very, very confused. And you keep asking yourself: ‘Why me?’ All the time: ‘Why, what have I done? Why has this happened to us?’”

Harry also revealed his anguish and described his reaction was one of ‘disbelief’ and that he ‘refused to accept it’.

Harry’s wife, the outgoing Duchess of Sussex, is set for a court battle after she took legal action against the Mail On Sunday.

The newspaper allegedly published personal letters written by the Duchess to her estranged father, Thomas Markle.

With Thomas prepared to take the stand against his daughter, he vowed that ‘everything will come out‘ in the potentially damaging court trial.

Harry also admitted his “deepest fear is history repeating itself” in reference to the press’ treatment of his late mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car crash in Paris in 1997.
