Prince Harry prepares to delve into his childhood in latest interview

Prince Harry will take part in another live interview as part of his efforts to promote his best-selling memoir, Spare. The Duke will sit down with trauma expert Gabor Maté at 5pm GMT to discuss “living with loss and the importance of personal healing” in the context of Harry’s book which details his grief following the death of his mother, Princess Diana. 

The physician has more than two decades of experience working with people suffering from addiction and mental illness and he fiercely believes that all of the problems we face as adults stem from the trauma we endured as children – so Harry’s upbringing is likely to be a key focus of the interview.

Speaking in a previous interview, Dr Maté said: “All our dysfunctions, our relationship problems, the pain that we carry, the resentment we harbor, the anger that we generate at our partners – it originates in early childhood trauma.”

Since stepping down as a senior royal Harry has become increasingly open about his trauma, notably about growing up as the “spare” and following the sudden death of his mother.

It comes after Harry was urged to rethink going ahead with the interview after it emerged the host has defended Palestinian rocket fire at Israeli civilians and branded Israel’s government as terrorists.

Rabbi Abraham Cooper of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre in New York said he assumed Harry had no knowledge of Dr Maté’s “political bias and hatred for the Jewish state” and hit out at whoever booked the interview.

“Whoever made the arrangements to have this individual appear with Prince Harry, did him no favours,” he told the Jewish Chronicle. “If Prince Harry knew this man’s record and still chose him for the interview, our Centre would criticise the prince for such an inappropriate choice.”

Dr Maté has become aligned with the hard-left and made highly controversial comments comparing Hamas terrorists to the heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising against the Nazis.

It is not known who arranged Harry’s latest interview or whether he was involved in the process. His publishers or a member of the Sussex team could have organised it.

But the interview is likely to receive a large audience as the public wait to see if he launches any fresh attacks against the Royal Family or comments on his recent eviction from his UK home, Frogmore Cottage.
