Prince Harry will talk about his struggles as a member of the royal family with a “trauma expert” during a virtual live-streamed event after he and wife Meghan Markle were mocked in a recent “South Park” episode.
The Duke of Sussex will sit down with Canadian doctor and author Gabor Maté for what’s being billed as an “intimate conversation” — in which fans of the royal can buy tickets for $33.99 for a chance to submit a questions to Harry about his life, the New York Post reported. It is part of the ongoing promotion of the duke’s tell-all memoir titled “Spare.”
“In ‘Spare,’ Prince Harry is very open about his mental-health challenges, as I have been about my own in my books,” Maté shared about the event. “Such a public conversation, I hope, will help encourage more openness around mental health and contribute to remove the stigma around what we call mental illness.”
“I think a discussion of loss, trauma and healing is of interest to people at all levels of society,” he added.
Prince Harry will discuss his memoir, Spare, at a livestream event alongside renowned author Dr. Gabor Maté on Saturday, March 4, PEOPLE exclusively reveals. The Duke of Sussex will also answer questions from the audience.https://t.co/PrsndATSxi

“Join us on Saturday, March 4, 2023, at 12 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. GMT on Vimeo for an intimate conversation as they [duke and Maté] discuss living with loss and the importance of personal healing,” a message on the website read.
Another report noted that the two men will sit down for a conversation at an undisclosed location.
News about the virtual event comes following the latest “South Park” episode titled, “The World-Wide Privacy Tour.” It features “the Prince of Canada and his wife,” who were clearly modeled after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
During the episode, the Canadian prince and his wife — who were drawn to look similar to Harry and Markle — go on a worldwide “we want our privacy” tour following a book tour for his tell-all memoir “Waaaagh,” The Daily Mail noted. The cover of the memoir looks similar to that of Harry’s real-life memoir.
“Spare” is listed as a non-fiction memoir in which Prince Harry “tells his own story, chronicling his journey with raw, unflinching honesty,” the Amazon description notes.
In the memoir, the royal blames the media for destroying his relationship with his family, writing, “How lost we are, I thought. How far we’ve strayed. How much damage has been done to our love, our bond, and why? All because a dreadful mob of dweebs and crones and cut-rate criminals and clinically diagnosable sadists along Fleet Street feel the need to get their jollies and plump their profits — and work out their personal issues — by tormenting one very large, very ancient, very dysfunctional family.’”
