Prince Harry admits he still has questions about the tragic death of his mother, Princess Diana.

The Duke of Sussex – who was just 12 when he died in 1997 – made the revelation during his first TV interview since the release of explosive excerpts from his “Backup” memoir.

“There are a lot of things that are unexplained,” he told Tom Bradby while discussing Diana’s death in an ITV interview broadcast on Sunday.

However, Harry clarified that he “really doesn’t see the point” in opening a new investigation after years of reviewing the case.

He also recalled watching the gruesome photos from the scene shortly after his mother’s death to try to understand what had happened.

Harry told Bradby that he remembered seeing paparazzi at the window taking pictures as Diana died instead of helping her.

“I couldn’t understand [her death],” he admitted.

Comparing Diana’s death to recent fears for his own life, Harry said he was “truly horrified at what’s going to happen” to him and his wife Meghan Markle.

Mutual fear led to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex eventually stepping down as senior members of the royal family and moving from the UK to California in 2020.

Amid their ongoing feud with the royal family, Harry said in the new interview that he hopes to one day patch things up, especially with his father, King Charles III, and his brother, Prince William.

“I want reconciliation, but first there has to be accountability,” he said, claiming some members of the royal family had told him he was “deluded and paranoid.”

Harry was just 12 years old when Princess Diana died tragically.

Elsewhere in the interview, the father-of-two said he “only cried once” over Princess Diana’s death. The beloved royal was killed in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel in Paris.

“Everybody knows where they were and what they were doing the night my mother died,” he said.

“I cried once, at the funeral. I go into detail about how weird it was and how there was actually some guilt I felt, and I think William felt too, walking around Kensington Palace.

Harry also remembered what it was like to hold the wet hands of mourners, drenched in tears at the heartbreaking news.

“There were 50,000 bouquets of flowers for our mother and we shook hands with people smiling. We couldn’t figure out why their hands were wet, but it was all the tears they were wiping,” he said.

“Everyone thought and felt as if they knew our mother, and the two people closest to her, the two people she loved the most, could not show any emotion at that moment.”

Harry also mentioned the children he shares with Markle: Archie, 3, and Lilibeth, 1.

“I don’t want to be a single father,” he said, fearing history would “repeat itself.” “And I don’t want my children to have a life without their mother or their father.”

The interview is the first of a series of broadcasts Harry is due to make this week before Spare hits US shelves on January 10.

He will speak with Anderson Cooper on “60 Minutes” on Sunday night, with “Good Morning America” ​​host Michael Strahan on Monday and with Stephen Colbert on CBS’ “The Late Show” on Tuesday.

Page Six has reached out to Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace for comment on the claims in Harry’s book. We’re told no one will be commenting at this time.
