Although Harry is no longer a working royal, he still continues to advocate for veterans. After he was stationed in Afghanistan and returned home to the U.K., he created the Invictus Games. His 2023 docuseries, Heart of Invictus, explored the emotional trauma that motivated him to enlist and the realities of life in a camouflage uniform.
“I had that moment in my life where I didn’t know about it, but because of the trauma of losing my mum when I was 12… for all those years, I had no emotion,” he said. “I was unable to cry, I was unable to feel. I didn’t know it at the time. And it wasn’t until later in my life at age 28, there was a circumstance that happened, that the first few bubbles started coming out.”
“Then suddenly it was like someone shook it and it went poof… And then, it was chaos,” Harry continued.
