Prince Harry hates being photographed as he says it triggers painful memories of his late mother Diana.
He believes the world’s most photographed woman was killed by the paparazzi, so each lens pointed in his direction is “the worst reminder of her life”.
“Every single time I see a camera, every single time I hear a click, every single time I hear a flash, it takes me straight back,” he said in 2019.
He has also accused the press of “commoditising” people he loves “to the point that they are no longer seen as a real person”.
Which is why he moved to California with his wife, to live a life out of the spotlight.

So it must have really p****d Harry off that Time magazine went and made him and Megan “Icons”. Because the shy, retiring couple had to face those bloody cameras again and pose for a cover shoot!
But I reckon H asked the snapper just to knock off a few quick frames and then tart them up with the airbrush.
Because that would explain the bizarre image of Harry standing behind his glossy wife like a fake-tanned Stepford Husband.
Or, as one Twitter wag suggested, “like Harry is her hairdresser and he’s looking into the mirror explaining what he did to her layers”.

The magazine, which lists the Sussexes among the world’s 100 most influential people, claims to have captured their “powerful dynamic as equal partners.” But to those asking “WTF?” on social media, they appeared to have been captured using CGI. And commoditised to the point they no longer seem real.
Meanwhile, over in Blighty, Harry’s dad and Uncle Andrew are struggling with their own images. The Prince of Wales’ charity is being rocked by a sleazy “cash for honours” row and two senior officials have quit. But Charles insists he was never part of the picture.
And the Duke of York knows he can no longer hide from sex assault allegations (which he denies) as the High Court has ensured US court papers are properly served. So he won’t be smiling. Thank God for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!
They were back to work this week after the school holidays. Kate went to RAF Brize Norton this week to thank folk involved in evacuating Afghan refugees, while William was handing out awards to NHS heroes. They are the REAL icons. The authentic face of modern monarchy, the picture of royal duty.
And as the Queen starts to cut her workload after next year’s Platinum celebrations, the Cambridges will thankfully come into even sharper focus. But Harry won’t be out of the frame for long.
He’s releasing an explosive memoir in 2022 – and it could just steal the spotlight from Granny’s Jubilee. How on earth is he going to cope with all those photographic triggers?Read More Read More
