WATCH: Prince Harry admits 'toxic' British media destroyed his mental health and gives his thoughts on The Crown in candid interview with James Corden
Prince Harry met up with TV presenter James Corden in Los Angeles for a tour around the city on an open top bus.
Harry has been living in LA with his wife Megan Markle and their son Archie since moving to the US.
In a 17 minute candid interview, the Prince spoke about why he made the decision to move from the UK after the 'toxic' British media 'destroyed' his mental health with articles about his family. He said, "We all know what the British press can be like. And it was destroying my mental health. I was like... 'this is toxic'."
He added: "So I did what any husband and father would do - I need to get my family out of here.
"But we never walked away - and as far as I'm concerned, what decisions are made on that side - I will never walk away."
When asked about his thoughts on the Netflix phenomenon The Crown, Harry said it is a work of fiction although loosely based on the truth. He says, "Of course it's not strictly accurate, but it gives you a rough idea about what that lifestyle - the pressures of putting duty and service above family and everything else - what can come from that."
He continued, "I'm way more comfortable with The Crown than I am seeing the stories written about my family, or my wife or myself.
"Because it's the difference between fiction - take it how you will - but this [news reports] is being reported on as fact because you're supposedly news. I have a real issue with that."
During the interview Harry also reveals that the Queen bought Archie a waffle maker for Christmas and that the Queen and Prince Phillip keep in touch over Zoom, although instead of pressing the button to end the call, Phillip will just close the whole laptop. He also admits that he knew his wife Meghan was "the one" following their second date and that Archie's first word was "crocodile".
