Prince Harry Opens Up About the Death of Princess Diana in New Footage from the Royal Tour of Africa

A documentary on his recent tour of Africa with Meghan Markle is in the making.

The documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey promises a behind-the-scenes look at the Sussexes' recent visit to southern Africa. And in a new preview of the project, Prince Harry opens up about the death of his mother, calling his grief "a wound that festers."

"Every single time I hear a click, every single time I see a flash, it takes me straight back, so in that respect, it is the worst reminder of her life as opposed to the best," he says.

An earlier trailer (below) features footage Prince Harry holding baby Archie as the Duchess of Sussex kisses her son on his forehead.

That clip is accompanied by a voiceover from British news anchor Tom Bradby.

"It was a journey but not always the one I was expecting," he said. "The story of their time was one of passion for their work private happiness but also a world of pressure and pain behind the brave faces."

Watch it here:

It's likely that Bradby's narration there is alluding to both the announcement that the Duchess of Sussex is suing the British publication the Mail on Sunday and the searing statement Prince Harry released about the press on the penultimate day of the visit.

"There is a human cost to this relentless propaganda, specifically when it is knowingly false and malicious, and though we have continued to put on a brave face—as so many of you can relate to—I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been," the Prince wrote.

Previously Bradby had tweeted that he thinks the documentary "will explain a lot when it airs."

Harry & Meghan: An African Journey is being produced by ITV, and will air on October 20 in the U.K. It will later air in the U.S. on October 23 at 10 p.m. on ABC, in a special hosted by Robin Roberts. No news yet if the documentary will be made available in Asia.
