Saira Khan reveals regrets over late father

Share article:

"Loose Women" panellist Saira Khan regrets not getting to say goodbye to her late father as she wanted to.

The 49-year-old presenter sadly lost her dad Jan when she was in her late twenties and during Friday's episode of the show, the panel asked, "Do you ever get over losing a parent?" after Prince Harry admitted the loss of his mother Princess Diana has been "a wound that festers" in his life.

Saira grew emotional as she talked about her father's passing and admitted she was heartbroken when he died just as she was "making him proud".

She said: "I thought I had gotten over my dad's death. He was 60 and I was 28 years old, and I loved my dad to bits. He was a hard man and we had a difficult relationship but he was my everything and I thought to myself, "I am going to prove myself to you Dad, and make you proud." And just at that moment when I was making him proud, he just went."

The former "Dancing On Ice" star also admitted she wishes her dad could have witnessed her tie the knot with husband Steve Hyde in 2004, and been around to see her adopt her daughter Amara in 2011.

Saira - who also has son Zachariah with Steve - added: "There are moments in life like when I got married, when I had my son and when I adopted my daughter but he never got to see any of that. I never got to say my goodbyes like I wanted to."

The TV star says anyone who has ever lost a parent "will empathise" with Harry, whose mother was tragically killed in a car accident in Paris in 1997 at the age of 36 when the prince was just 12.

She said: "I think with Prince Harry people just thought, "Well you're a royal, you have money, just get over it." But he lost his mum in such tragic circumstances, in front of the whole world. I get why he has carried that burden and anyone who has lost a parent will empathise with him."

The 35-year-old royal admitted in a preview of an interview from the upcoming ITV documentary, "Harry & Meghan: An African Journey", that dealing with his parent's death has been difficult and described his life as a royal as "the worst reminder of her life".

The documentary will be broadcast on Sunday (20.10.19) at 9pm on ITV in the UK, and next week on ABC in the US.
