Prince Harry got real about the paparazzi involved in his mother’s death, calling it the “hardest thing” to get over
Prince Harry and Prince Williams tend to stay quiet on the darker matters of losing their mom, Diana. Both men are doing a beautiful job upholding her legacy of philanthropy, and we rarely hear them speak ill of anyone involved in her accident. However, in the last year, Harry has become more vocal. In November, he slammed the “racial undertones” that appeared in some coverage of his relationship with Meghan Markle.
Now, he’s opened up about the lasting resentment and pain he has towards the paparazzi and their direct involvement in his mother’s death.
“One of the hardest things to come to terms with is the fact that the people who chased her into the tunnel were the same people who were taking photographs of her dying in the backseat of her car, Harry revealed in the documentary Diana, 7 Days.
“William and I know that, we’ve been told that numerous times by people that know that was the case. She had quite a severe head injury, but she was very much alive on the backseat and the same people who caused the accident, instead of helping, were taking photographs of her dying on the back seat,” he added, “Then those photographs made…made their way back to news desks in this country.”
We can’t even imagine this sort of pain and how Prince Harry must feel whenever he thinks of the paparazzi.
The story has been told many times, but Harry and William’s mother, Princess Diana, passed away on August 31, 1997 during a car accident where she was trying to avoid the paparazzi. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsqpvIkc_Zg
