Some critics have taken Harry's comments as a veiled jab at the royal family's approach to mental health after he and wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex claimed she was offered no support from the monarchy while experiencing suicidal thoughts.
However, senior royals including Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge have spearheaded mental health initiatives in the UK for years and have been open about seeking support for their own struggles in the past.
While in their roles as senior royals, Harry and Meghan also led campaigns promoting mental health in the UK, with Harry being vocal about the importance of speaking up.
The 37-year-old previously shared his experiences with seeking therapy after meeting Meghan, who encouraged him to get help in the UK and now, it seems, in their new Californian home.
After losing his mother, Princess Diana, in a tragic car crash in 1997, Harry struggled with the trauma of her death and the pressures of royal life into his 20s and 30s.
In his Apple TV+ documentary series with Oprah Winfrey, the royal confessed he turned to drugs and alcohol to combat his anxiety and make him "feel less like [he] was feeling".
Touching on his own experiences with loss and grief in his latest podcast appearance, Harry said that even though individuals may forget the traumas as they age, "the body holds the score".

"Just as much as there's a mental health aspect to it, there's also the emotional aspect to it as well," he added, a philosophy that drives his advocacy work with BetterUp.
The Duke of Sussex hopes to change the conversation around mental health, shifting attitudes to encourage "mental fitness" through support, awareness and more.
He pointed to the Invictus Games as a great example of how emotional healing can make a huge difference in a person's life even when affected by physical and other ailments.
The annual event sees injured service men and women compete on the world stage in an incredible initiative Harry established in 2014.
