The Duke of Sussex is expected to give an insight into some of his personal struggles in his new documentary with Oprah Winfrey called The Me You Can’t See, which will be released on Apple TV+ tomorrow. The programme is aiming to help break the stigmas associated with mental health issues and will feature a host of celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Glenn Close and celebrity chef Rashad Armstead. It comes after a BBC investigation headed by former senior judge John Dyson found former journalist Martin Bashir tricked Diana into giving a very public interview where she talked about her failed marriage to Prince Charles.
Harry is also expected to talk about how his mother’s death from a car crash in 1997, when he was only 12-years-old, affected his mental health
Ahead of the release of Harry’s new documentary series, a source told Page Six: “One of the episodes is very personal … deeply,”
Harry also spoke about the importance of speaking about mental health issues in the trailer.
He said: “To make that decision to receive is not a sign of weakness, in today’s world, more than ever, it’s a sign of strength.”
The trailer also features footage of Harry as a child attending Diana’s funeral.
Harry has also spoken candidly about how his family relationships have affected him on separate occasions this year.
During an interview on the Armchair Expert podcast last week, he told actor Dax Shepard that he wanted to “break the cycle” of pain and suffering he experienced as a child from Charles.
Back in March, Meghan Markle and Harry also claimed a member of the family made a racist comment about their son.
Harry’s wife also said she had suicidal thoughts but her approaches to the monarchy for help were turned down.
Buckingham Palace responded to their claims that “recollections may vary”.
Meanwhile, the BBC has apologised following the investigation into allegations from Diana’s brother Charles Spencer that he had been tricked into introducing her to Mr Bashir.
Lord Dyson’s report found that Mr Bashir had shown Mr Spencer fake bank statements suggesting that Diana was being bugged by the security services and that two senior aides were being paid to provide information about her.

The report said: “Mr Bashir deceived and induced him to arrange a meeting with Princess Diana.
“Mr Bashir acted inappropriately and in serious breach of the 1993 edition of the Producers’ Guidelines on straight dealing.”
Mr Spencer said today he drew a line between the events and Diana’s death.
He said: “She didn’t know who to trust and in the end when she died, two years later, she was without any form of real protection.”
During the Panorama interview, which was watched by more than 20 million viewers in Britain, Diana admitted to having an affair and also shared details Charles and Camilla’s relationship.
She made a remark that “there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded”, which was a reference to Charles rekindling his relationship with Camilla.
Last week, the BBC announced that Mr Bashir was leaving his current job as the broadcaster’s religious affairs editor due to ill health.
Mr Bashir has since apologised for the fake statements, but said he stood by his evidence from 25 years ago.
He added he did not believe they had prompted Diana to give the interview.
