Prince Harry revealed he has been in therapy for the last seven years to cope with the loss of his mother during his keynote speech at a JPMorgan summit in Miami on Thursday night after being introduced on-stage by Meghan.
The Alternative Investment Summit is the first public appearance Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, have made since they left the royal family two weeks ago in search of a private life, and is believed to have earned them between $500,000 and $1million.
The star-studded event at the 1 Hotel South beach attracted business titans and celebrities like Bob Kraft, Alex Rodriguez and Magic Johnson.
Sources told Page Six that Gayle King introduced Meghan to the stage which was erected under an enormous tent on the beach. Meghan then spoke briefly about her ‘love for her husband’ then introduced him. After the speech, they are believed to have had a private dinner with some of the other esteemed guests.
‘Harry spoke about mental health and how he has been in therapy for the past few years to try to overcome the trauma of losing his mother.
‘He talked about how the events of his childhood affected him and that he has been talking to a mental health professional.
‘Harry also touched on Megxit, saying while it has been very difficult on him and Meghan, he does not regret their decision to step down as senior royals because he wants to protect his family.
‘He does not want Meghan and their son Archie to go through what he did as a child,’ the source said.
