Prince Harry speaking out about problems he had dealing with the death of his mother, Princess Diana.

FOX's Pat O'Neill has more:

It goes against a royal tradition of remaining silent about any sort of mental health issue. But Prince Harry in an interview with the Daily Telegraph opens up about his mother's death in a 1997 car crash.

The Prince says he endured "two years of total chaos" "shut down all his emotions" for nearly 20 years and that he was very close to a complete breakdown on numerous occasions.

(Prince Harry) "My way of dealing with it was refusing to ever think about my mom, because why would that help?"

The Prince told the newspaper he needed a lot of counseling because of his inability to deal with his grief.

Harry along with his brother William and sister-in-law the Duchess of Cambridge, has worked with a charity that promotes mental health awareness.
