He also admitted to feeling “a bit guilty” as he walked through the crowd gathered outside Kensington Palace, saying the only time he cried was at the burial of his mother.

He told host Tom Bradby: “Everybody knows where they were and what they were doing the night my mother died.

“I cried once, at the burial, and you know, I detailed how weird it was and how guilty I really felt, and I think William felt the same way. so while walking around outside Kensington Palace.”

Harry described feeling mourners’ tears in his hands as he shook them.

“There were 50,000 bouquets sent to our mother and there we shook hands with people, smiling,” he said.

“I watched the videos, yes, I watched them all. And the wet hands that we’re shaking, somehow their hands are wet, but it’s all just tears they’re wiping away.

“Everybody thought and felt like they knew our mother, and the two people closest to her, the two grandmothers who loved the most, were unable to express any emotion in that moment.”

The interview is the first of four appearances to air in the coming days, with Harry also speaking to Anderson Cooper for 60 minutes on CBS News on Sunday night, Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan on Monday and Stephen Colbert on the Late Show on CBS on Wednesday morning UK time.

A series of revelations have leaked from the memoir, Spare, to be published on Tuesday.

Harry says in the book that he thought he couldn’t cry in front of a crowd because his family didn’t like showing emotions.

According to the Telegraph, Harry wrote: “I don’t like the touch of those hands. Furthermore, I don’t like the way they make me feel: guilty.

“Why do people cry when I am neither crying nor crying?

“I wanted to cry, and I tried, because my mother’s life was so sad… but I couldn’t… a drop.

“Perhaps I have studied too hard, too deeply instilled in the family maxim that crying is never an option – never.”

Harry has been criticized for several statements in the memoir, including that the Prince of Wales attacked him and called his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, “difficult” and “corrosive” .

Friends of the couple said that William kept quiet about the book “for the good of his family and country”.

Speaking to the Sunday Times, a friend said: ‘William is like a duck because Harry knows he won’t retaliate. How many pictures can you take of a sitting duck?

“It is cruel, cowardly and sad that William continues to take punches. He kept quiet for the sake of his family and country.”

The friend added that William was “burning” in his heart.

Another friend told the paper that William was thinking strategically, as he followed the example of his grandmother, the late Queen Elizabeth II.

The friend said: “We know how closely he followed his grandmother’s example and that the institutional response can prevail over the individual.

“But he’s adamant about protecting his family, and he’s not going to roll around.”

The Sun reported that as well as the first alleged physical assault by his brother in 2019, Harry also claimed that William “steamed” and “screamed” grabbing his shirt while the two are negotiating peace with their father in the garden of Frogmore Cottage. in 2021.

Other controversial claims including William and Kate encouraging him to wear a Nazi uniform caused outrage in 2005 and that he killed 25 Taliban while serving in Afghanistan.

The Telegraph reported Harry said undertaking six missions on his second mission on the front lines resulted in “the loss of human life” of which he was neither proud nor ashamed.

In a previously released trailer for the ITV interview, Harry says he’s publishing his memoir because he doesn’t know if “keeping quiet will ever make things better.” “.

In another clip, he says he wants to reconcile with his family – but that can’t happen without “some accountability”.
