Prince Harry said he feels sometimes “massively at peace” with his new life in the US with wife Meghan Markle.
“I don’t know how many people feel truly peaceful,” he told “Today” show co-anchor Hoda Kotb in an interview filmed at the Invictus Games. “At times I feel massively at peace, but with everything that’s going on in the world …”
The redheaded now-former royal addressed his mental health struggles — as well as those of the Invictus Games competitors — and said once people heal, they end up “feeling lighter.”
“For so many people it’s about management, but I do know there is a light at the end of a tunnel for everybody.”
Harry’s “light” came when he and the “Suits” alum moved to California.
“You know, home for me now is, you know, for the time being, it’s in the States,” he told Kotb, 57. “And it feels that way as well. We’ve been welcomed with open arms, and it’s got such a great community up in Santa Barbara.”
Harry, 37, even joked that admitting the US is “home” for him would become a “thing” given Megxit but couldn’t deny the impact of his life with his two kids, Archie and Lilibet, even if it means learning to balance work and life.
“Working from home is not all that it’s cracked up to be,” he quipped. “Archie spends more time interrupting our Zoom calls than anybody else, but he also gets us off them as well so that’s helpful.”
Harry and Markle continue to dedicate their lives to service — the Duke of Sussex said he finds “healing” in helping — but now he’s focusing his efforts to help his children.
“My sort of mantra now every day is I’m ‘trying to make the world a better place for my kids,’” he shared.
Harry and Markle, 40, landed in the Netherlands on Friday after stopping in England to visit with Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles ahead of the long-reigning monarch’s 96th birthday.
It was the couple’s first time in the UK together since exiting the royal family in 2020. They did not bring Archie, 2, or Lilibet, 10 months, along for the trip.ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK! Called “America’s Number ONE Gossip Columnist” by The National Enquirer.
