Harry's Trauma: The Prince Emotionally Calls Pain Over Losing His Mother As Something He "Can Never Possibly Describe"

A couple of days ago, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wrapped up their royal tour in South Africa.

On their last day, the couple attended two events, during which they gave meaningful and impressive speeches. Both Meghan and Harry passionately and emotionally talked about changing the world, having personal matters throughout lives, and having the voice inside each of us. Simply put, the royal couple managed to inspire everyone, who has a willing to rock and thrive.

However, during Prince Harry's speech about the value of South Africa to him, he sensitively mentioned his late mother. Princess Diana passed away in August 1997, and shortly after the death, Prince Charles took their sons to Africa — the country that helped Harry and William cope with unbearable pain.

The Duke said:

Ever since I came to this continent as a young boy, trying to cope with something I can never possibly describe, Africa has held me in an embrace that I will never forget, and I feel incredibly fortunate for that.

The Prince continued, saying that every time he visits Africa, he always feels "that I'm not alone." Instead, he harbors incredible feelings of unity, comprehension, and loyalty to his own principles and communities around him.

During the ten-day tour, the father-of-one was also seen with a cheap bracelet, which he has been wearing for 23 years.

In fact, this piece has a very significant meaning to Harry. It is believed the Duke of Sussex got the bracelet during a trip to Africa — two months after Princess Diana passed away. This piece of jewelry helps Harry pay tribute to his mum because he feels like she's always with him no matter what.

The pain over losing a parent will never go away. It can become a bit less, but it still eats you from the inside day-by-day, hour-by-hour, minute-by-minute.
