Prince Harry joined Dr. Gabor Maté for anhour-long session that was streamed live, where the Duke of Sussex was diagnosed with ADD — attention deficit disorder.

During the chat, Maté announced that having read Harry’s memoir , he had come up with «several diagnoses» for the prince. «Whether you like it or not, I have diagnosed you with ADD.

You can agree or disagree,» the Canadian therapist proclaimed. «I don’t see it as a disease. I see it as a normal response to abnormal stress.»Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD) is defined by the Mayo Clinic as a mental health disorder that includes a combination of persistent problems, such as difficulty paying attention, hyperactivity and impulsive behavior.«OK -- should I accept that, or should I look into it?» Prince Harry responded to which Maté replied, «You can do what you want with it.»Elsewhere in the interview, Harry opened up about some of those stresses that that likely contributed to Maté's diagnosis, including losing his mother, Princess Diana, at the age of 12.«One of the things I was most scared about was losing the feeling that I had of my mom,» he said. «I thought that if I went to therapy, that it would cure me and that I would lose whatever I had left, whatever I had managed to hold on to of my mother.

And it turns out that wasn't the case. I didn't lose that. It was the opposite. I turned what I thought was supposed to be sadness — to try to prove to her that I missed her — into realizing that, actually, she really just wanted me to be happy.
