In his memoir, which accidentally hit shelves early in Spain, Prince Harry suggests that his brother thought he was being harmed by therapy. The Duke of Sussex recalls making a televised speech at the WellChild awards in 2019, saying he was almost overcome by emotion and was briefly unable to speak. He describes being overwhelmed when confronted by the suffering of the families while thinking of his baby son, Archie, at home. He goes on to say that Prince William, who was overseas at the time, immediately contacted him to express his concern.
Mr Amaral featured in a viral video demonstrating his technique on the American dancer and actress Julianne Hough. The Dancing with the Stars favourite appeared to be writhing and yelping in the video, behaviour explained as a dissipation of energy to result in a feeling of release.
Harry also thanks the London chiropractor Ben Carraway, the physiotherapist Kevin Lidlow, the consultant clinical psychologist Lesley Parkinson, the acupuncturist Ross Barr and the personal fitness consultant Winston Squire.
However, he opted not to name the UK-based therapist whom he credits with “helping unravel years of unresolved trauma”.
TV presenters Oprah Winfrey and James Corden are also thanked in the book, along with Coldplay singer Chris Martin.
