He wasn't pleased when a member of his staff tried to hurry him along while he was talking to a grieving widow during his Sydney Harbour Bridge climb.

Gwen Cherne, 41, was one of the four representatives from Team Australia at the Invictus games who joined Prince Harry in the climb.

She then told him about her husband, an Australian special forces officer, Peter J. Cafe, who committed suicide last year.

Prince Harry, who has spoken openly of his own mental health struggles after losing his mother, Princess Diana, at the age of twelve easily related with Gwen because he understands fully the agony of grief and loss.

The duo spent about ten minutes chatting. Gwen revealed that they spoke about her story and mental health and how difficult it is to talk about grief and loss and suicide.

They also spoke about her children, the Invictus Games and how it brings people together and allows for such conversations as theirs to take place.

Then, Harry's staff tried to move him along before the conversation was over, but the Prince wanted to make sure that he had enough time to talk and replied that he was in the middle of a conversation. The empathetic Prince was snapped sharing an emotional hug with the mother of three.

The conversation clearly meant a great deal to Gwen, who said that she was humbled to have had an opportunity to spend time with the Prince.

She further confessed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex help to promote optimism and positive mental health attitude.

Harry, who is touring Australia with his pregnant wife, Meghan Markle, was on the bridge to help herald the start of the Invictus Games, which were founded by the Prince himself to support sick and wounded servicemen.

After her husband's death, Gwen became an Invictus and War Widow Guild ambassador.
