Toxic trauma expert Gabor Mate diagnoses Prince Harry with attention deficit disorder but tells him it CAN be cured – with the royal saying ‘a free session, great’ during their tell-all chat

Prince Harry has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) during his tell-all interview with a trauma expert. 

The younger son of King Charles is talking to toxic trauma expert Dr Gabor Maté this evening in what’s been 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 ADD.  

The £17-a-head tickets for the livestream also included a hardback copy of the Duke’s memoir, Spare, which was first published in January.

The timing of the discussion is particularly awkward for the palace, coming just days after it emerged King Charles is evicting Harry and his wife Meghan Markle from Frogmore Cottage, their grace-and-favour mansion on the Windsor estate.

The livestream costs £17 and comes with a hardback copy of the duke's memoir, Spare. Viewers can also purchase Dr Mate's latest book

Dr Maté began the conversation by saying there were ‘two divergent stream of responses’ to the event – those who had and hadn’t read Harry’s book Spare.

He said that those who hadn’t read the book were ‘resentful’ towards 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 out there’.

Harry added that ‘it feels like an act of service’ sharing his experiences through his book.

Dr Maté has said Harry starting therapy ‘was like bursting a bubble’.

Later in the discussion, Dr Maté told Harry he believes he has Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), which can affect people’s concentration and means they are easily distracted. 

His diagnosis prompted the prince to joke ‘thanks for the free session’. 

But the doctor has faced criticism for remarks made in the past and Harry has come under fire for sharing a platform with him.  

Dr Maté has provoked fury due to 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 branded the Israeli government ‘terrorists’.

The ‘intimate conversation’ comes amid concern from the Sussex camp 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 allegedly given ‘weeks’ to pack up their British home at Frogmore Cottage after Harry’s memoir Spare hit the shelves in January.

Earlier this week, journalist Omid Scobie claimed that some members of the Royal Family were ‘appalled’ by the decision to evict Harry and Meghan, with the couple also said to have felt ‘stunned’.

An insider allegedly told him: ‘It all feels very final and like a cruel punishment. It’s like [the family] want to cut them out of the picture for good.’

But the couple are not as ‘stunned’ about leaving as previous reports have suggested, believing that ‘if we need to move out, we will get ourselves out’, a source told The Times.

The revelation comes as preparations are taking place for King Charles’ Coronation in May amid speculation that Harry may not receive an invitation.

WHAT IS ADHD?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a behavioural condition defined by inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness.

It affects around five per cent of children in the US. Some 3.6 per cent of boys and 0.85 per cent of girls suffer in the UK. 

Symptoms typically appear at an early age and become more noticeable as a child grows. These can also include:

  • Constant fidgeting 
  • Poor concentration
  • Excessive movement or talking
  • Acting without thinking
  • Little or no sense of danger 
  • Careless mistakes
  • Forgetfulness 
  • Difficulty organising tasks
  • Inability to listen or carry out instructions 

Most cases are diagnosed between six and 12 years old. Adults can also suffer, but there is less research into this.

ADHD’s exact cause is unclear but is thought to involve genetic mutations that affect a person’s brain function and structure.

Premature babies and those with epilepsy or brain damage are more at risk. 

ADHD is also linked to anxiety, depression, insomnia, Tourette’s and epilepsy.  

There is no cure. 

A combination of medication and therapy is usually recommended to relieve symptoms and make day-to-day life easier.
