Prince Harry and Meghan Markle completed their Africa trip a few weeks ago, but their journey is still making headlines. While they were there, the royal couple opened a happy reporter.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex talked about their personal challenges and what they took away from the trip. In particular, Prince Harry shared some profoundly personal feelings with journalist Tom Bradby and explained the bond he still feels with his deceased mother, Princess Diana. The prince also revealed what always reminds him of her – but not in a good way.
Princess Diana was hounded by the press
It's no secret that Princess Diana was loved by people around the world. Even those who had traditionally never thought much about the royal family felt attracted by their beauty, compassion and strength of character.
Yet their relationship with the media was a bit more complicated. At one point she was one of the most photographed women in the world, and she was followed by photographers wherever she went.
As much as Princess Diana loved to connect with people, she despised her lack of privacy. Over the years, especially after her divorce from Prince Charles, the relationship between the king and the media became even closer. And, as some would say, dangerous.
When Princess Diana died in 1997 as a result of a car accident, many directly blamed the paparazzi and said the driver of the car she had been in tried to escape prying photographers when the car crashed.  Prince Harry opened his relationship with the media
Princess Diana's youngest son, Prince Harry, was only twelve when his mother died tragically. Although he has often talked about how he feels his mother's influence on everyday life, there are some elements about her death that still bother him.
Recently, Prince Harry Tom Bradby of ITV revealed how her untimely death affects him.
Prince Harry admitted that the grief he feels for his mother is a "sore wound" and becomes particularly difficult when confronted with the cameras and paparazzi flashlights of the media. Although he acknowledged that media attention is part of the royal life, he said the cameras were still haunting him.
Ultimately, Prince Harry said, media attention is the "worst memory of their lives as opposed to the best".
What's next for Prince Harry?
Prince Harry would certainly know about the dangers of media attention. In recent years, the prince has received a lot of negative advertising since his marriage to Duchess Meghan.
Last summer reached an all-time high when critics criticized Prince Harry for his approach to environmental activism. The journey that Prince Harry and Markle made to Africa was not only a way for them to escape the relentless media attention, but also possibly to reset their focus and gain positive publicity.
The Royals ended their journey with an aggressive note. In early October, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan announced that they would sue the British publication Mail on Sunday since a private letter from Markle to their father was published at the time of the royal wedding.
Although the Mail on Sunday announced that it would defend itself, there is no doubt that Prince Harry finally had enough of dangerous media attention and wanted to avoid the same persecution his mother, Princess Diana, was aiming for , Experienced.
Princess Diana would probably be very proud of her son and wife if she created her own story, regardless of what someone thinks.
