In his autobiography “Spare” Prince Harry also writes about traumatic experiences in his life. About the early accidental death of his mother, Princess Diana. A psychologist now explains that such descriptions could burden people with similar experiences.

August 31, 1997 was a traumatic day in the life of Prince Harry (38) and his brother Prince William (40). At that time, her mother Princess Diana († 36) died after a car accident in Paris. Previously, the “Queen of Hearts” and her then-boyfriend Dodi Al-Fayed († 42) were chased through the city in their limousine by paparazzi.

As if that weren’t enough, Princess Diana’s funeral procession on September 6, 1997 was similarly distressing for the two princes. William and Harry felt pressured by the Palace to walk around London in full view of the public behind their beloved mother’s coffin.

In interviews, a Netflix documentary and his autobiography “Spare”, Harry has described the events in detail and has not concealed how traumatizing it was for him. The self-proclaimed trauma expert Danny Greeves (34) thinks that he could trigger other people who have experienced something similar.

As “” reports, Greeves is convinced that people who have also lost a loved one could relive their suffering through Harry’s descriptions. In an interview with Jam Press, Greeves accuses Prince Harry of “trauma dumping” and explains: “Trauma dumping is a term used to describe sharing trauma with another person without their consent.”

Through his biography, however, Harry’s terrible experiences have not only been shared once, but millions of times. That’s why Greeves also states: “The media-induced whirlwind that followed Harry and Meghan’s documentary, their interviews and the publication of Harry’s book could be perceived as trauma dumping on a large scale. The focus here should be on how many other people who have experienced the death of a parent may be triggered.”

Greeves is concerned that people who are confronted with Prince Harry’s traumatic experiences without warning could be negatively affected. Therefore, the therapist explains: “It might have been wiser to give more warning and caution to those who are sensitive to these issues.”

Despite these reservations, Greeves also makes it clear how important it is to process such distressing experiences and says: “For many people, sharing the events in a supportive, safe space can be an important step on the path to healing.”

Prince Harry, on the other hand, left this protected space and shared his experiences with the public. That didn’t necessarily do him a good service, Greeves is sure. “Because so many people believe that the purpose of these trauma stories is for financial gain (whether or not that’s true), Harry has already seen his popularity decline.”

Even after the publication of his book, Prince Harry does not rest. Next on the agenda is what appears to be an expensive event in San Francisco.

Prince Andrew has been forced to step down from his royal duties following an abuse scandal. But he would like to contest the comparison with Virginia Giuffre and he also supposedly has an ace up his sleeve for a better image: a new “development” next month should help.

Last year, the disgraced Prince Andrew had to vacate his office at Buckingham Palace. Now his brother King Charles III. also took away his place to sleep in the castle.
