LONDON — Prince Harry has revealed the distress he suffered when walking behind his mother Diana’s casket through the streets of London following her funeral.
“No child should be asked to do that,” the 32-year-old said in an interview with Newsweek.
Harry also discussed his future, saying none of the royal family really wanted the throne but were fulfilling a duty.
“We are not doing this for ourselves but for the greater good of the people,” he said.
Harry has spoken candidly in a series of interviews in recent months,revealing in April that he sought therapy to deal with his mother’s death and described having panic attacks.
Diana’s funeral brought huge crowds onto the streets to witness Princes William and Harry — then aged 15 and 12 — following her casket out of Westminster Abbey and through the British capital on on Sept. 6, 1997.
