Prince Harry has reportedly been “healed” by the birth of his baby boy, according to a new report by the Daily Express which states that the trauma the royal endured as both a teen and as a soldier infinitely changed the Duke of Sussex’s outlook.

Prince Harry, who has admittedly suffered from emotional trauma after the tragic death of his mother Princess Diana and the horrors he witnessed during 10 years of service in the Army and two tours of Afghanistan, has a newfound peace since his marriage to Meghan Markle and now, the birth of their first son.

Angela Levin, a royal commentator, shared to the Daily Express that the prince will be “very sad” he will not be able to share in the joy of his first son with his late mother.

“I think he will be very sad that his mother is not there to see the baby. But I think he will feel as he has done over many years, that she is there watching over him. And he will be very excited. He has wanted a baby since he was very young and he said he wanted children, he loves children and feels most at home with children – much more than with adults I think,” she explained.

As reported by Reader’s Digest, Prince Harry has spoken of the trauma he felt over Diana’s death. He revealed that he stifled his emotions after her death, forcing himself not to think about her as a teenager and as he matured into his 20s.

He noted that he “couldn’t put his finger on” what was wrong with him emotionally and turned to his older brother William for help. William, in turn, led him to seek professional help and to take up boxing as a way to vent his frustrations.

Harry also found a purpose as he served alongside his fellow soldiers. He entered The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in May 2005 to begin his training, eventually rising to the rank of captain. He continues to work in support of his fellow servicemen, promoting support for wounded men and women as they adapt to life post-injury, noted the British royal family‘s official website.

Just as it was during his engagement to Meghan Markle, when he used two of the stones that belonged to his late mother for Meghan’s engagement ring, and his wedding, when he used Diana’s favorite flowers as part of the arrangements and asked her sister to read a passage from the Song of Solomon at the ceremony, Harry found a way to incorporate his mother into the birth of his child as well.
