From Prince Philip to Friday Night Dinner actor Paul Ritter, American rapper DMX and reality star Nikki Grahame, a number of high-profile figures have died in the last few weeks. Express.co.uk chatted to dream analyst Jane Teresa Anderson to find out how the loss of public figures can impact Britons' psyche and result in bad dreams.

When a public figure dies, especially one we felt particularly connected to, it can affect our psyche and lead to disturbing dreams.

The death of Prince Philip may have been particularly harrowing for Royalists, Britons and members of the Commonwealth, so it wouldn't be surprising if these people have been experiencing strange dreams in light of the news.

Our dreams process our personal waking life experiences, and once we can interpret them they can give us a window into our conscious and unconscious mindset.

Jane explained: "There are times when world events touch our personal lives deeply and contribute to the stuff of our dreams.

Prince Edward shows 'inner anxiety' and 'concern' for father Prince Philip in new video

  Prince Edward shows 'inner anxiety' and 'concern' for father Prince Philip in new video PRINCE EDWARD issued an update on Prince Philip's health during a video interview on Tuesday. According to a body language expert, the Earl's "anxiety" and "concern" for his father, who has been in hospital since last week, came through in the new clip.During an interview about continuing his father's legacy, the Earl was quizzed about how Prince Philip was doing having been admitted to hospital as "a precautionary measure" on February 16.

"The Covid pandemic is an example: worldwide people experienced similarly themed dreams of being trapped, feeling out of control, or being 'bugged' by strange viruses, as we all wrestled with feeling trapped, out of control, and the prospect of infection."

The death of Prince Philip and other public figures in the last week are other examples of events that can make their way into our dreams.

The dream analyst noted that Prince Philip's death has also touched so many people, royalists and non-royalists, and anyone could be experiencing dreams related to the death of the Queen's late husband.

Jane said: "For some, Prince Philip's death marks the end of an era, and brings up our feelings and fears around change.

"For others, his passing reminds us of the fragility of our own ageing relatives, or our own advancing years, bringing up our feelings and fears around death and loss."

For those who have been avidly reading and watching the media, it has been perhaps impossible to avoid stories about Prince Philip's life, and we each react in our different ways.

Jane added: "Perhaps some admire his steadfast support of the Queen, perhaps others admire his outspoken tendencies or his humour, perhaps others struggle with his outspokenness."

If you felt particularly connected to DMX or his music, or Nikki Grahame was someone you followed on social media, or you were a fan of Paul Ritter's work, the same applies.

When we sleep at night, our dreams process our experiences, our feelings, fears, the issues we agree with and the issues we disagree with as our dreaming brains and minds try to consolidate our thoughts and feelings.

Jane said: "While it's likely that many people have dreamed of Prince Philip himself or any of the figures who have passed away recently - like a dream symbol of these issues - it's likely that many more have had dreams and nightmares triggered by these same issues.

"These may include dreams of our own loved ones passing, or of loss, or of our feelings about change, or our feelings about being supportive, serving others, or speaking out."
