MEGHAN Markle told Prince Harry to get therapy after he "acted like a 12-year-old" in a huge row, he has revealed.
The Duke of Sussex told Oprah Winfrey in his new documentary series The Me You Can't See he feared he'd lose his wife if he "didn't fix himself".

Opening up about his mental health struggles, he said: "I was always the 'yes' man, I was always the one willing to say yes.
"But that yes, yes, yes, yes of course, yes, led to burnout. And it was like someone had taken the lid off all of the emotions I had suppressed for so many years suddenly came to the forefront.
"I saw GPs, I saw doctors, I saw therapists, I saw alternative therapists, I saw all sorts of people.
"But it was meeting and being with Meghan. I knew that if I didn't do therapy and fix myself, then I was going to lose this woman who I could see spending the rest of my life with.
"There was a lot of learning right at the beginning of our relationship. She was shocked to be coming backstage of the institution of the British Royal Family.
"When she said, 'I think you need to see someone', it was in reaction to an argument we had.
"In that argument, not knowing about it, I reverted back to 12-year-old Harry."
He continued: "I felt somewhat ashamed and defensive, like, 'how dare you, you're calling me a child'.
"And she said 'no, I'm not calling you a child, I'm expressing sympathy and empathy for you for what happened to you when you were a child. You never processed it, you were never allowed to talk about it, and all of a sudden now it's coming up in different ways as projection.
"That was a start of a learning journey for me. I became aware that I'd been living in a bubble within this family.
"I was almost trapped in a thought process and mindset."
It follows Harry's Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast interview last week in which he said Meghan encouraged him to seek therapy after seeing him "hurting".
He said his wife had encouraged him to get help with feelings of "frustration" about things that were "out of his control".
