Prince Harry Wants To Break The ‘Cycle Of Pain’ For His Children

Yesterday, Prince Harry made an appearance on the podcast Armchair Expert, where he discussed the upbringing of his son, Archie and unborn daughter. The Duke of Sussex explained that with his children’s upbringing, he wants to “break the cycle” of “pain and suffering” that he experienced. Harry is expecting a daughter with his wife, Meghan Markle, this summer.

On the Twitter page for Armchair Expert, Dax Shepard explains that it is a podcast about the “messiness of being human.” The show celebrates, above all, the “challenges and setbacks that ultimately lead to growth and betterment.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepped down as senior royals in January 2020. At the time, the pair wished to avoid the media headlines, but have been right up there ever since.

During Prince Harry’s appearance on the podcast on Thursday, May 13, the former Royal had a lot to say. He described his life as a mixture between The Truman Show and being in a zoo. Harry said he doesn’t think we should be pointing the finger at anybody. However, he wants to break the cycle of pain and suffering for his own children.

Cycle of pain in the Royal Family

Harry told host Dax Shepherd that he doesn’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anyone. However, the Duke referred to experiencing some form of pain or suffering, due to the pain and suffering that his father or his parents had suffered. Prince Harry said that basically, he is going to ensure he breaks that cycle, so he doesn’t pass it on to his children.

Harry said a lot of genetic pain and suffering gets passed on anyway. However, as parents, we should try out best to say, “That happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.”

The Duke did admit it is hard to do, but that it comes down to awareness. He said he never saw it or knew about it. Then suddenly he started piecing things together. Harry realized things like this is where he went to school, this is what happened. While he knows about his own life, he also knows it is connected to his parents. Likely referring to Prince Charles, he said he has treated me the way he was treated. Harry now wants to change that for his own children.

Prince Harry moving to the US not part of the plan

Harry explained to Shepherd that his family’s move to the US had not been part of the plan. However, he said sometimes you have to make decisions and put your family and your mental health first.

Speaking of their life in Los Angeles, California, Harry said that living there now he can actually lift his head and feel different. He said his “shoulders have dropped,” and so have Meghan’s. They can walk around feeling a little freer. In fact, Harry said he can take his son Archie on the back of his bicycle, something he would never have had to chance to do before.
