"For Harry the death of his mother when he was just 12 was profound and the loss has shaped him ever since.
But his grandfather too knew tragedy: the loss of a father, a gambling reprobate he barely knew, and an eccentric mother who had little involvement in how her son was raised or, indeed, who was responsible for it.
Uprooted from his family home, he was moved between uncles and aunts, and when war came was separated from those he loved most, his three surviving sisters (one sister died aged 26 in a plane crash) who had married into the Prussian aristocracy.
Instead of complaining about his lot, Philip seized the opportunities he was offered."
...."Drawing parallels between Diana's situation and his own, he speaks of his mother 'going through this process by herself all those years ago'.
But here he is wrong. Diana was sometimes lonely but she was never alone. She had her sons, she had her own family in the Spencers, she had a loyal staff and she had her friends.
Harry's attempt at equating what he perceives as the ill-treatment he and Meghan claim to have received from the media with Princess Diana's own battles over privacy and intrusion are hopelessly muddled and woefully ill‑thought out."
