While Prince Harry claims that he's content with his new life in California, royal expert Duncan Larcombe believes he won't be truly happy until he heals from past "trauma."
"The cause of all his anger and sadness was never the royals," Larcomb noted. "It was the trauma from his mum [Princess Diana] dying when he was a child."
"That's where the issues lie — I don't think he'll be truly happy until he works through that," he added.
Instead of facing his feelings head on, "He has now made the royals and the institution his enemies because of that," Larcombe explained. "He's on the warpath."
Larcombe's words come after Harry's revealing interview on Dax Shepard's podcast, where he admitted that he's been wanting to leave the royal family for years.
"It's a mix between The Truman Show and living in a zoo," he explained of the dynamic. "The biggest issue for me was that, being born into it, you inherit the risk. You inherit every element of it without a choice. And because of the way the U.K. media are, they feel an ownership over you."
"In my early 20s, I was in space of, 'I don't want this job. Look what it did to my mum, how am I ever going to settle down, have a wife and a family, when I know this is going to happen again,'" the Duke of Sussex continued. "I've seen behind the curtain, I know how this operation runs and works. I don't want to be part of this. Then once I started doing therapy suddenly the bubble was burst."
Harry also admitted to the comedian that his upbringing took a toll on him.
"There's no blame. I don't think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody," he said. "But certainly when it comes to parenting, if I've experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I'm going to make sure that I break that cycle so that I don't pass it on."
