Millionaire Prince Harry moans about ‘hard days’ & is ‘always kicking himself’, but ‘positive mindset is his superpower’


MILLIONAIRE Prince Harry admitted he’s “always kicking himself” during “hard days” – but visualises positive situations as he’s “schooled by the universe”.

The Duke of Sussex, who took five months off work when daughter Lilibet was born, said his commitments can leave him feeling burned out.

Prince Harry admitted he still has tough days in a talk on ‘mental fitness’ tonight
The Duke of Sussex said he meditates daily and uses time during the morning for walking the dog and work-outs

And during an earnest chat for US firm BetterUp, he argued all companies should give employees time to build on their “mental fitness”.

Bosses should allocate 15-minute “white space” periods during the day, he said.

“I too experience burn-out,” he said.

“I’m burning the candle at both ends and that’s like, boom.

“That’s when you’re forced to look inside yourself.”

During the chat, Harry revealed:

  • “Mental fitness is the pinnacle – it’s what you’re aiming for. The road towards that can be really bumpy… it’s called inner ‘work’ for a reason”
  • “I know I need to meditate every day… You need to put it into your day diary as a habit otherwise it’s the first thing that drops away”
  • “I have now put in about half-an-hour, 45 minutes in the morning when one kid has gone to school and the other is having a nap… it’s like, right, it’s for a workout”
  • “When bad things happen I think, ‘There’s a lesson here, I’m being schooled by the universe”
  • “Every single bad thing – or the things you perceive to be bad – that happen actually can be good”

Despite his gilded LA lifestyle, Harry said he can’t always do the things he’d “love to do” because of the “stresses” he faces.

But he uses meditation and working out to help cope when Archie goes to school and Lilibet takes a nap each morning.

“I know I need to meditate every single day,” he said.

“There’s a lesson here. ‘I’m being schooled by the universe. Next time it happens, I’m going to be more resilient and can see a way around it to achieve the ultimate goal’. 

“If you have that perspective, every single bad thing that happens, what you perceive to be bad, can be good.”

And he said he uses visualisation to “turn negatives into positives” – admitting it’s his “superpower”.

“Some days are great, some days are really hard,” he said.

“I’m always kicking myself – ‘If you’d have done this, which you know works for you, you wouldn’t be in this state now.’

“It’s work, but of all the work that’s pulled towards us, it’s the most fulfilling work – apart from being a dad.”

He spoke after royal expert Katie Nicholl suggested he’s “laying low for now” and “doesn’t want to cause any more upset” to the Queen.

She said Harry has “paused and reflected” on interviews over the past year.

“He’s realised how much last year took a toll on his grandmother, and doesn’t want to cause any more upset, so is laying low for now,” she told Closer magazine.

Despite that, the Royal Family will be bracing for Harry’s memoir, due to be released this year.

He promised to give an “accurate and wholly truthful” account of his life, writing as “the man he has become”.
