Prince Harry is honest and open about his past. The Duke of Sussex opened up about wearing a Nazi uniform, including a swastika armband, to a 2005 birthday party and the resulting scandal. “It was one of the biggest mistakes of my life. I was so ashamed afterwards. All I wanted to do was get it right,” Prince Harry said in the third episode of his Netflix docuseries. Harry & Megan.

After the controversy, Prince Harry’s response was to make amends for what he had done. He spoke to the chief rabbi in London, which he says had a “profound influence” on him. He also traveled to Berlin to speak with a Holocaust survivor.

“I could have just ignored it and probably made the same mistakes over and over again in my life. But I learned from that,” stresses Prince Harry.

Prince Harry is the first to acknowledge some of the issues with the family he grew up in. “Sometimes in this family you’re more part of the problem than part of the solution. And there’s a tremendous amount of unconscious bias,” the 38-year-old says in the docuseries.

He continues, “The thing about unconscious bias is that it’s actually nobody’s fault. But once it’s pointed out or identified within you, you have to do it right. It’s education. It’s consciousness. And it’s constant work for everyone, including me.”
