Prince Harry talks about combat stress and his experience from Afghanistan
Prince Harry appeared to stumble over his words during an interview in Heart of Invictus when he was asked “what do you do?” – that saw him provide an unexpected four-word reply.
Heart of Invictus, which is executively produced by Harry, has been released on Netflix and followers the organisers and competitors as they prepare to compete in the 2022 Invictus Games, which the prince founded in 2014.
The Duke of Sussex appears more relaxed and carefree during the five-part documentary series, which is his latest project as part of the huge deal he and wife Meghan Markle signed with Netflix after stepping away as senior working members of the Royal Family.
But in one scene Harry – who is no longer a senior working member of the Royal Family – appears slightly taken aback after being asked what was seemingly an awkward question.
The prince is seen sitting in front of the camera and asked by an interviewer: “What’s your name?” prompting the Duke of Sussex to reply: “My name’s Harry.”

But the conversation takes a twist when the former working royal is asked: “What do you do, Harry?”
There is a brief pause before Harry answers: “What do I do?”
He carefully continued: “Er…on any given day, I’m a dad of two under-three-year-olds. I’ve got a couple of dogs. (I’m) A husband. I’m founding patron of Invictus Games Foundation,” he carefully added.
“There’s lots of hats that one wears, but I believe today is all about Invictus.”

Harry is the father of four-year-old Prince Archie and two-year-old Princess Lilibet, who are not featured in Heart of Invictus.
The documentary series also shows Meghan participating in an important meeting ahead of the Invictus Games and attempting to calm Harry down ahead of an important speech in New York.
At one point in Heart of Invictus, the Duke of Sussex spoke about the “trauma” he suffered following the death of his mother, Princess Diana.
Harry was just 12 years old when the late Princess of Wales died in a car accident in Paris in 1997.
In the documentary series, he talks about the importance of therapy for military veterans while confessing he had “unraveled” after returning from a tour of Afghanistan, claiming he received no support.
He said: “Look, I can only speak for my personal experience, my tour of Afghanistan in 2012 flying Apaches, somewhere after that there was an unraveling and the trigger for me was actually returning from Afghanistan.
“But the stuff that was coming up was from 1997, from the age of 12, losing my mum at such a young age, the trauma that I had I was never really aware of, it was never discussed.”
