Lady Colin Campbell, a royal expert who was allegedly friends with the late Princess Diana, is speaking out this week to rip into Prince Harry for getting televised therapy in his new mental health docuseries “The Me You Can’t See,” which he worked on with Oprah Winfrey.

Campbell, who is the author of “Meghan and Harry: The Real Story,” said that getting therapy on television is a “violation of not only the privacy of the person who is agreeing to it, it is just wrong in every way, shape or form,” adding that there is “no justification” for it.

“It is as inappropriate to have a therapy session on television, just as it is to have sexual intercourse on television,” she told the Daily Star. “Both of them are wildly inappropriate. They are private and there is no justification for having them on television, ever. It is a violation of not only the privacy of the person who is agreeing to it, it is just wrong in every way, shape or form.”

“He had a therapy session on television. It is not appropriate. It’s not more appropriate to have a therapy session on television than it is to have sexual intercourse,” Campbell continued. “The two things are equally private and also Harry shares rather too much.”

Campbell said this after “The Me You Can’t See” director Dawn Porter said that Harry “volunteered’ to go through therapy on camera and was “game for trying something’ to help his mental wellness.”

“Harry he volunteered, he was game for trying something,” Porter told Town and Country Magazine. “And we thought well, we have the opportunity to film this [therapy] and maybe this is something that will work for some people, maybe it won’t, but the idea is that you don’t tick a box and you’re done, mental wellness is an ongoing pursuit. You have to continue to try new things and to push yourself, and his volunteering to try something was a great way to emphasize and underscore that point.”

Porter added that the project was important to both Oprah and Harry because both had “very personal and deep feelings about destigmatizing conversations” to do with mental health.

“This was really important to both of them, and so they were extremely hands on,” she explained. “We had meetings every other week.”
