The TV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan's trip to Africa was shown on British television on Saturday October 20. The documentary shows exclusive video and private insights about the royal couple and the struggles they go through in every day life. Prince Harry talks about his mother Lady Diana and what memories are still painful for him today.

The journalist and friend of the family, Tom Bradby, accompanied Prince Harry (35) and Duchess Meghan (38) on their trip to Africa. He recorded their experiences and conducted interviews. In an emotional conversation with Prince Harry, the Royal told him about the situations in which he is painfully reminded of the fate of his mother Lady Diana (†36).

A clip on the Instagram account for ITV News already gives insight into the conversation. "Every single time I see a camera, every single time I hear a click, every single time I see a flash, it takes me straight back. So in that respect, it's the worst reminder" Prince Harry admits.

Prince Harry is often painfully reminded of the fate of Lady Diana

Prince Harry often thinks of Lady Diana, who died in 1997, and continued his mother's work while on tour in Africa. Nevertheless the painful thoughts come up again and again. 

"Being here now, 22 years later, trying to finish what she started, will be incredibly emotional. But everything I do reminds me of her. But as I said, with the role, with the job and the sorts of the pressures that come with that, I get reminded of the bad stuff, unfortunately," says Prince Harry.

Lady Diana was followed by journalists every step she took. Every aspect of her private life was put into the spotlight and exploited. The 35-year-old wants to avoid a repetition of his late mother's fate at all costs. That is why Prince Harry confesses in an emotional statement to taking action against the British press.

Tom Bradby promises explanations

His wife, Duchess Meghan, often makes the headlines and usually not in a very positive way. The Royals don't want to put up with this any longer. ITV-News anchor Tom Bradby promises answers in the documentary.

In addition to the conversation with Prince Harry, the documentary will show impressions of the everyday work of royals in Africa. In addition you can even see adorable pictures of Baby Archie and vulnerable conversations with Duchess Meghan.
