Prince Harry, the trauma queen, insists he’s not a ‘victim’
Prince Harry has made the most shocking claim since leaving royal life.
“I definitely don’t see myself as a victim,” she told famed Hungarian-Canadian doctor and author Gabor Mate in an online therapy session to “spare” her traumatic memories.
It’s a hollow sentiment as the royal has spent the last three years claiming the “poor me” title of Duke of Roadkill from the House of Windsor.
In a multimedia effort, he chronicles every sin committed against him by his cold, distant, racist family — and, of course, the media.
But now, Harry, who clearly reads every scathing review from all corners of the press, is repeating his rants.
He called his perpetual oversharing an “act of service,” combining benevolence and charity to systematically and publicly throw his family under the bus.
In this, Harry’s well-run latest journey into his mental inner sanctum, the price of admission was a cool $37.15. The audience received an hour and a half of psychobabble buzzwords only understandable to those who use the phrase, “life experience.”
At times, it seemed like I was watching a fierce competition between two grown men to see who could use the word “shock” more.
Yes, it was a shock-pa-looza.
First, the good doctor noted that Harry had suffered from not being hugged and cuddled as a child. As a result, Harry said, he “indulges” his children with love.
Harry said he always felt isolated from his family and was not interested in academic pursuits. He thrived on the rugby field and in the wilderness. And he said the military was a good place for him because the armed forces “tend to recruit people from broken homes.”
They talked about drugs: Harry got into cocaine. He said that marijuana helped him, and ayahuasca Helped clear the “windshield”.
But it was not all an empty, exploitative exercise.
The Met inadvertently opened a fascinating window into Prince Harry’s mind when she offered him a number of mental health diagnoses.
These clinical assessments were based on the physician’s reading of the “spares.”
Immediately, Harry brightened at the prospect of piling more onto his stack of issues to be worked on in his favorite game, therapy.
Matt said Harry had AD. And fittingly as the conversation began to wander into other areas (as ADD would let you do), Harry kept interrupting. He wanted Met to complete the list, giggling like a kid at Christmas.
The Met noted that Harry suffers from depression, agoraphobia, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. Not post-traumatic stress disorder. Language matters.
Whatever term you want to use, there’s one clear conclusion: Prince Harry is addicted to trauma, whether real or imagined.
He and his wife Meghan Markle actually live in a house that was built on trauma — a $14.7 million Montecito retreat — paid for by trading off his family turmoil and his childhood tragedies.
There is a point where Harry and Matt discuss how acknowledging trauma helps trigger the healing process.
But it’s clear that Prince Harry doesn’t want to rehash or close old wounds.
Being hurt and hurt is the ginger prince’s most comfortable place and, sadly, what he considers his most valuable resource.
Yes, to him the “T” word is like a warm bed on a cold, rainy morning.
And he’s not moving.
