Before Prince Harry left the royal family, he was creating a new project with Oprah Winfrey — and it turned out to be their recent AppleTV+ series, The Me You Can't See.
"It's a project that we were inspired to produce after we first met, really, and talked about some of the most pressing issues of our time," Winfrey explained in the beginning of the show. "So we spent two years making this series ... together ... I remember that chat very, very well all that time ago."
In the series, Harry was candid about his upbringing — and even criticized Prince Charles' parenting skills.
"My father used to say to me when I was younger, ‘Well, it was like that for me, so it’s going to be like that for you,'" Harry shared.
"That doesn’t make sense," he noted. "Just because you suffered that doesn’t mean that your kids have to suffer, in fact quite the opposite. If you suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever negative experiences that you had you can make it right for your kids."
"Isn’t this all about breaking the cycle?" Harry added. "Isn’t this all about making sure that history doesn’t repeat itself?"
Harry wanted to get help for his issues, but his brood discouraged him from doing so.
"I wasn't in an environment where it was encouraged to talk about it. That was sort of, like, squashed," he said. "Family members have said just play the game and your life will be easier. But I have a hell of a lot of my mum in me. I feel as though I am outside of the system but I'm still stuck there. The only way to free yourself and break out to tell the truth."
Ever since leaving the royal family in 2020, Harry has been forthcoming about life as a royal, which has not gone over well with his father and grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
"There’s no way they’ll ever trust him after this," a source said. "The damage is done."
