The writer of the biography, The King: The Life of Charles IIIadded that while researching the book, he found that the Duke of Sussex found it “triggering” to sometimes fly to London.

“[He said] it reminds him of that day when he had to walk behind the coffin, and they were more or less bullied to do it by the palace – by the men in gray who actually run the palace, the people Diana always complained about, he explained to the outlet.

“[Charles, Earl Spencer]Diana’s brother…has also said he felt like he had been framed and regretted it.

“He said it was like walking through a tunnel of sadness.”

William was 15 and Harry was 12 when their mother was killed in 1997 from injuries sustained in a car accident in Paris. She was 36. At the time, her vehicle was being chased by paparazzi.

“I think both William and Harry were like, ‘Who are these strangers who never met her?'” Andersen said. “So they were upset about what had happened. And Charles, I think, understands that he was responsible to some extent that they had to endure… [that].”

In 2017, Harry described how difficult it was for him to participate in the funeral procession.

“My mother had just passed away and I had to walk a long way behind her coffin, surrounded by thousands of people watching me, while millions more did on television,” he said. News week at the time.

“I don’t think any child should ask that, under any circumstances. I don’t think it would happen today.”

The Duke is expected to discuss his grief in his upcoming memoir Reserve which will hit shelves and Kindles on January 10.
