Prince Harry is fearful of "not fulfilling expectations" and has a "subtle desire" to be informal and "cool," Princess Diana’s former vocal coach has claimed.

Ahead of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s bombshell Oprah interview, the late Princess of Wales' voice and presence coach, Stewart Pearce, has claimed Harry is a "hyper-vigilant" and a "visual thinker".

Mr Pearce, 68, who said he guided Diana from late 1995 up until her death in 1997, said the Prince's thoughts "pour out in a torrent" as he "doesn't quite sense how to dispatch his thoughts".

He also claims Harry's use of space fillers, like "um" or "ah," occur when an individual is "lacking inner stillness" and feels as though they need to "keep moving to be interesting".

Speaking to The Sun about Harry’s Archewell "podcast" voice, Mr Pearce adds that Prince Harry loses a sense of “centre in his voice,” which reflects his “great awareness of form and respect” of status.

The urge to speak faster therefore shows Harry’s "subtle desire to de-formalise" and be "cool," a feeling the expert claims the Prince is in "dispute" with himself about.

Mr Pearce said: "Harry gives the impression that his thoughts tumble in speech, and although he is quick witted, his clarity of thought is slightly lost by rhythmically speaking too fast.

"This tendency often arises from someone who is hyper-vigilant because of unexpressed trauma, or a fear of not fulfilling expectations."

The voice coach, who is set to release his latest self-help book, Diana: The Voice Of Change, adds: "Yet whilst engaged in being "easy", he loses a sense of centre in his voice – a firm tonal position or resonance – and articulates rapidly.

"This means some vowels are squeezed and some consonants crash into one another or are cancelled, but not all the time."
