Prince Harry was left "unable to cry for a very long time" after his mum Princess Diana's tragic death, a royal expert has said.
The revelation comes following the release of the Duke of Sussex's latest documentary in which he revealed that he was "angry" at the British public for mourning the Princess of Wales because they "never even met her".
Harry opened up about the pain of losing his mum when he was just 12-years-old in his new documentary series called 'The Me You Can't See' on Apple TV+.
During the interview, the prince opened up about traumatic memories of his childhood, including being photographed with his brother, uncle, and grandfather walking behind Princess Diana's coffin at her funeral back in 1997.
The 36-year-old expressed his frustration that the country grieved for his mother when they didn't know her personally.
Speaking to Oprah Winfrey, he said: "When my mum was taken away from me at the age of 12, I didn't want the life, sharing the grief of my mother's death with the world.
"For me, the thing I remember the most was the sound of the horses' hooves going along the Mall.
"It was like I was outside of my body and just walking along doing what was expected of me.
"(I was) showing one-tenth of the emotion that everybody else was showing: This was my mum – you never even met her.
"I was so angry with what happened to her and that there was no justice, at all. Nothing came from that."
The revelation that Harry was angry at the British public has been criticised by some royal fans, many of whom held the Princess of Wales in such warm regard themselves.

Royal biographer Angela Levin, whose most recent book was Harry: Conversations with the Prince, was responding to a tweet which said: "So Harry resented the British people for loving his mother, even though we never met her..but he expected us to unquestioningly love Markle, who we also never met?"
In response, Ms Levin wrote: "It's a bit more complicated. He told me when we chatted at Kensington Palace that many people were crying over Diana but as a prince he couldn't.
"It said it stopped him crying for a very long time as his emotions were so suppressed. I believe him on that."
In The Me You Can't See, Harry says that whenever he thinks of memories with Princess Diana, he just remembers being chased by cameras while in the car with her and Prince William.
Discussing his memories of Diana, he said: "Unfortunately when I think about my mum, the first thing that comes to mind is always the same one over and over again.
"Strapped in the car, seat belt across with my brother in the car as well and mother driving and being chased by three, four, five mopeds with paparazzi on.
"She was always unable to drive because of the tears. There was no protection."
