Prince Harry has admitted that he was afraid of the reaction he would receive upon returning to the UK for Prince Philip's funeral.

The whole world watched as the 36 year old reunited with the royal family on 17 April as the Duke of Edinburgh was laid to rest, following a ceremonial funeral at St George's Chapel.

Tensions within the famous clan were said to be high, with Harry and Meghan Markle stepping down from Royal duties a year earlier and the pair opening up in the bombshell Oprah interview just weeks before Philip passed away at age 99.

And speaking in his new Apple TV + documentary series, The Me You Can't See, the father-of-one explained that he feared the plethora of cameras dissecting his every move upon arrival to England.


"I was worried about it, I was afraid," he told talk show mogul Oprah.

Harry, who discussed his reliance on EMDR therapy to heal the trauma from his past, said that he used coping mechanisms learnt in therapy to help him get through the funeral.

"It definitely made it a lot easier, but the heart still pounds," he explained.

As well as EMDR, Harry uses 'tapping' methods to address his energy balance and begin to alleviate his symptoms and treat his PTSD diagnosis.

Therapist Sanja Oakley led a session with him on camera for his new AppleTV series, The Me You Can't See.

During the documentary series, Harry said that when he asked the Royals for help with his mental health, they showed "total neglect" towards him and his wife, Meghan.

Harry explained that when he was younger he would end up drinking a week's worth of alcohol in just one day in a bid to try to help with the trauma of his mother's death.

"I was just all over the place mentally," he said.

Harry also likened his and Meghan's relationship to the one his mother Diana had with Dodi Fayed before her tragic death, as he revealed the extent of his wife's suffering when she confided in him about her suicidal thoughts.
