Prince Harry was perfect for military as emotional pain worse than physical

Prince Harry said he was "perfect for the military" as his emotional pain was "worse than physical pain" after the death of Princess Diana.

The Duke of Sussex sat down for an "intimate" live stream with physician and author Dr Gabor Maté today (Saturday, March 4) to promote his memoir, Spare, released in January of this year.

In the interview, Dr Maté asks Harry about his days as a rugby player at school, probing: "You talk about your rugby days in school, how you were kind of dangerous to be around because you weren’t afraid of pain.

"Because you said the physical pain, being hit on the rugby field, was less than the pain you were carrying inside you.”

“I was a good candidate for a rugby team,” Harry responded.

“But at the same time I was a fantastic candidate for the military.

"I don’t know how it is around the rest of the world but certainly in the UK we tend to recruit from broken homes, individuals who are ready for it.”

Harry also opened up about his experiences with therapy, admitting that it was like "learning a new language".

"When I was doing therapy regularly, I suddenly realised that I'd learned a new language and the people I was surrounded by didn't speak that language.

"And then I felt more pushed aside."

Harry said his therapist told him: "This is how it is for everyone."

The tell-all interview was broadcast to promote Spare, Harry's memoir in which he dished the dirt on his relatives.

In the instant bestseller he accused the palace of intentionally leaking stories about other members of the royal household to the press.

He even alleged his brother, Prince William, had been physically violent towards him.

And it is understood the release of the book has had a devastating impact on the rest of the family, in particular King Charles.

Appearing as a guest on last week’s episode of the Pod Save The King podcast, Charles royal biographer and author Gill Knappett said: "All I can say is, he’s been hit hard, beyond hard, in fact – as any father would be.

"I just think it's a very sad private family matter that has become so public, and I'm really not sure what it was supposed to achieve."

Harry's interviewer, Hungarian-Canadian physician Dr Maté, is the author of The Myth of Normal: Trauma, Illness, and Healing in a Toxic Culture.

A controversial figure in the States, in the past he has also worked as an ayahuasca healer, using the illegal drug to help people unpack deep-rooted trauma.

However, authorities in Canada soon learned about Dr Maté's work with the psychedelic and threatened to escalate the issue if he didn't stop his work with the drug.
