Harry opened up last week about the emotional trauma of losing his mother
Friends have suggested his girlfriend Meghan Markle encouraged him
Royal insiders say her ‘American attitude’ has rubbed off on the royal
Prince Harry won widespread praise last week by breaking royal protocol to make a series of deeply personal revelations about coping with the death of his mother.
But according to insiders, he may never have spoken out about his mental health if it wasn’t for his girlfriend Meghan Markle.
Friends have suggested it was the American actress who urged the royal to speak publicly about his experience of coping with grief at a young age.
Harry, 32, revealed last week that he had sought counselling after two years of 'chaos’ following the death of his mother Princess Diana, who died in 1997 when he was just 12 years old.

And a royal source has suggested Meghan, 35, is responsible. 'Harry feel for Meghan partly because she’s so open, and has that American attitude of saying, “Let’s talk about our feelings,”’ they told Closer magazine.
'He comes from such a stiff-upper-lip culture, but Meghan helped him open up.’
Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland is a yoga therapist, and until recently the actress ran a glossy lifestyle blog called The Tig, packed with 'inspirational’ memes and messages of support for her followers.
The source added: 'Meghan encouraged Harry to see that, by speaking publicly about his difficult experience, he would really help others, and how being honest might even be a relief.
'No other woman has helped Harry so much emotionally.’

A lip gloss is a creamy, liquid product designed to give colour and shine to the lips.
Lip glosses are generally packaged in a tube with an applicator or in a squeezable tube. Lip glosses can be clear or tinted and vary in colour saturation, some can be sheer and others can be pigmented.
Lip glosses are applied all over the lips using the applicator included with the product or a separate lip gloss wand or brush. They can be worn alone or on top of a lipstick.
The purpose of a lip gloss is to accentuate the lips to make them look fuller, more hydrated and healthier.
