It has been quite a few months for the Duke of Sussex following the fallout from his recent statements surrounding the Firm.His comments about his experiences with his mental health, and the way he felt he had been treated by his own family certainly unnerved critics. He is set to return to the UK to unveil a statue for, what would have been, Princess Diana’s 60th birthday but polls suggest the British public does not want him back. Lady Colin Campbell even started a petition to encourage Harry to willingly give up his royal titles.
The petition requires 75,000 signatures and at present, it has 57,001.
There is no way of telling if the petition will do anything but it does show the amount of interest and importance Harry’s titles have, which in turn, demonstrates how much this means to the public.
In unearthed reports, it was revealed that Harry’s former girlfriend, actress Cressida Bonas, did not want her life to be filled with media intrusion which is why she distanced herself from their relationship.
In the book ‘Battle of Brothers’ by Robert Lacey, Cressida reportedly told friends that Harry had a “neurosis” about the media and complained about the paparazzi even when they were not present.
Mr Lacey wrote: “Even so, Cressida Bonas, his last serious girlfriend before Meghan Markle, came to feel he was a damaged and self-obsessed young man.
“He’d rant and complain about paparazzi lurking where clearly there were none, she said.”
It is no secret that both the Duchess of Cambridge and Harry are advocates for mental health.
Kate supports children and communities to cope with their experiences through art and photography, whereas Harry has chosen to champion mental health by helping people with disabilities.
Kate has known Harry for a long time and she even tried to bring some calm to the storm of the royal rift between her husband Prince William and his younger brother.
Royal commentator Ashley Pearson also revealed that Kate gave Harry a “feminine perspective that he was lacking”.
In the documentary ‘Kate Middleton: Working Class to Windsor’, Ms Pearson said: “Harry and Kate have a very warm affectionate relationship.
“Harry grew up without a sister or mother to a great degree and Kate gives [Harry] a feminine perspective and a feminine touch that he really was lacking – I think, growing up – so it really is nice for him to have that family member.”

However, the poll – which was carried out between June 3 and 4 – asked: “Should Prince Harry be involved in the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations?”
A whopping 97 percent of readers (11,326 people) responded “no”, with just three percent (375 people) backing the move.
Less than one percent of the 11,770 respondents (69 people) voted “don’t know”.
The Duke of Sussex has been in therapy for around four years now and has variably credited his brother Prince William and his wife Meghan Markle for getting him into it.
Harry has always been wary of the media and blamed the paparazzi for the death of his mother, Princess Diana.
He said in an interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby in 2019: “I will not be bullied into playing a game that killed my mum.”
