HEARTBREAKING: PRINCE HARRY REVEALS HE SAW A THERAPIST ON WILLIAM'S ADVICE AS HE ADMITS HE WAS C
Prince Harry has revealed how his brother William adviced him to seek counselling after two years of 'total chaos' as it was very difficult for him to come to terms with his mother's death.
The remarkable personal disclosures - unprecedented for someone who is a member of the Royal Family - came in a revealing interview as he launches the Heads Together mental health campaign with William and Kate.
Harry said Prince William asked him to get help after 'shutting down all his emotions' for nearly 20 years following Diana's death in 1997.
Prince Harry, who was 12 years old when his mother died, admits that he ignored his grief during his teenage years, only doing something about it when he was 'on the verge of punching someone' in later life.
Before then, he endured two years of 'total chaos' when he became 'a problem' to himself - a period which included the infamous Nazi fancy dress and intimate photographs from a party in Las Vegas - but 'did not know what was wrong'.
In a truthful and heartbreaking interview with The Telegraph, he said his grief, worsen with living in the public eye, left him 'close to a breakdown', sparking anxiety during royal engagements and struggles in his personal life that he 'didn't know how to deal with'.
Prince Harry said - he even turned to boxing to help ease his aggression - and he was saved by opening up about his feelings, leaving him 'in a good place' and he wants to do all he can to help remove the stigma around mental health.
