Prince Harry has given a searingly open interview about the 'festering wound' his mother's death left in his life.

The Duke of Sussex, 35, told documentary presenter Tom Bradby that every click and flash of a camera in the public eye gives him 'the worst reminder of her life as opposed to the best'.

He says he felt significant pressure being a member of the royal family in the spotlight, and was particularly stressed by the memories of his mother's relationship with the press.

He was asked: 'Do you feel at peace in a way yet or is it still a sort of wound that festers?'

To which he replied: 'I think probably a wound that festers.

'I think being part of this family, in this role, in this job, 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 of her life as opposed to the best.'

The Duke and Duchess together spearhead the charity 'Heads Together', which works to end stigma surrounding mental health.
