Prince Harry said in an interview that he didn’t want his wife, Meghan Markle and son Archie to go through what his mother, Princess Diana experienced during her life in the royal family.
“I don’t want to be doing this. Look what it did to my mum, how am I ever going to settle down and have a wife and family when I know it’s going to happen again,” he lamented. “I’ve seen behind the curtain, I’ve seen the business model and seen how this whole thing works and I don’t want to be part of this.”
Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, died in a car crash in Paris in 1997 at age 36 while trying to avoid aggressive paparazzi. The British royal noted that he fears something like that will happen again in his family.
However, for years Harry didn’t quite know what to do with these feelings he was having and definitely didn’t see a way out of royal life.

“Because you can’t get out. How are you going to do this differently? How are you going to make your mom proud? How are you going to use this platform to really affect change and be able to give people that confidence to be able to change their own lives?” he said.
