Prince Harry may have been forced to go through a “triggering event” during his journey back to the UK. The Duke of Sussex travelled from the United States in order to participate in the unveiling of a new statue for his mother, Princess Diana. ITV Royal Rota podcast hosts Chris Ship and Lizzie Robinson discussed his separation from newborn baby Lilibet Diana and the trauma he has been open about.
Mr Ship added: “It’s a triggering event, bringing back all those memories.
“That’s something he no doubt went through.
“I feel very sorry for him for that terrible affliction that he has when he flies back into into the UK.
“I’d imagine he’d be spending as little time here as he possibly can before he goes back to the California sunshine.”
Harry produced an Apple TV+ mental health documentary series, ‘The Me You Can’t See’, with Oprah Winfrey.
Opening up on his therapy sessions, the Duke said his therapist suggested being in the UK makes Harry feel “helpless” and as if he were trapped.
He told viewers: “Being hunted, helpless and knowing you can’t do anything about it. There is no escape.”

Harry continued: “For most of my life I always felt worried, concerned, a little bit tense and uptight whenever I fly back into the UK, whenever I fly back into London.
“I was like ‘Why do I feel so uncomfortable?’
“And I could never understand why. I was aware of it.
“I wasn’t aware of it at the time I was younger but after I started doing therapy and stuff like that. I became aware of it.
“For me, London is a trigger because of what happened to my mum.”
