Toxic trauma expert Gabor Mate diagnoses Prince Harry with attention deficit disorder, but tells him it CAN be cured – with the royal saying ‘one free session, great’ during their telling chat
Prince Harry has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) during his telling interview with a trauma expert.
King Charles’ youngest son talks to toxic trauma expert Dr Gabor Maté tonight in what is billed as an “intimate conversation” about “living with loss and personal healing.”
In a striking revelation, the doctor told the Duke of Sussex that he believes he has ADHD.
The £17-a-head tickets for the live stream also include a bound copy of the Duke’s memoir, Spare, which was first published in January.
The timing of the discussion is particularly inconvenient for the palace, just days after it was announced that King Charles was evicting Harry and his wife Meghan Markle from Frogmore Cottage, their country home on the Windsor estate.
In a striking revelation, Dr Gabor Mate told the Duke of Sussex that he believes he has ADHD, which makes it difficult for a person to concentrate.

Dr. Maté started the conversation by saying there were “two diverging reactions” to the event: those who had read Harry’s book Spare and those who hadn’t.
He said those who hadn’t read the book were “outraged” at Harry and those who had were “grateful” to him for sharing his story.
The prince responded by saying: “I definitely don’t see myself as a victim,” adding that his experiences and his work with mental health “sharing my story will help some people.”
Harry added that “it feels like an act of service” in sharing his experience through his book.
Dr. Maté has said that starting Harry therapy was “like bursting a bubble.”
Later in the conversation, Dr. Maté told Harry that he thinks he suffers from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), which can affect people’s concentration and make them easily distracted.
His diagnosis prompted the prince to joke “thanks for the free session.”
But the Doctor has been criticized for comments made in the past and Harry has come under fire for sharing a platform with him.
Dr. Maté has drawn anger for his history of controversial comments, including comparing Hamas to the Jewish heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising against the Nazis.
The 79-year-old Hungarian-Canadian Holocaust survivor has also defended Palestinian rocket fire at Israeli civilians and once labeled the Israeli government as “terrorists.”

The ‘intimate talk’ stems from the Sussex camp’s concerns over the recent revelation that they will be asked to move out of their Windsor home – which may be handed over to Prince Andrew.
The couple were reportedly given ‘weeks’ to pack up their UK home at Frogmore Cottage after Harry’s memoir Spare hit shelves in January.
Earlier this week, journalist Omid Scobie claimed some members of the royal family were “appalled” by the decision to evict Harry and Meghan.

Prince Harry has admitted to using psychedelics – magic mushrooms, psilocybin (the active ingredient of magic mushrooms) and ayahuasca, a plant-based psychedelic from the leaves of a bush – in an attempt to help him heal from ‘grief’
An insider is said to have told him: ‘It all feels very final and like a cruel punishment. It’s as if (the family) wants to remove them from the picture forever.’
But the pair are not as ‘baffled’ about the departure as previous reports have suggested, believing that ‘if we have to move, we will figure it out on our own,’ a source told The Times.
The revelation comes as preparations take place for King Charles’ coronation in May, amid speculation that Harry may not receive an invitation.
