On July 1, 1961 in Sandringham, United Kingdom, Princess Diana was born. The remembered mother of William and Harry has not ceased to be present among the followers of the monarchy almost 25 years after her death.
Diana won the affection of the British people and that love transcended borders, her legacy is remembered in many parts of the world. However, her children are the ones who remember her the most. For example, Prince Harry recently revealed what he remembers most about his mother.
Princess Diana’s Birthday: What Harry remembers most about her mother
To commemorate what would have been her birthday we reveal what Harry’s fondest memories of his mother are. The Duke of Sussex assured that what he remembers most is her laughter.
“The only thing I hear in my head is her laughter. It’s just pure happiness and joy on her face,” he explained in a documentary titled “Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy.” He also added that his mother would also tell him, “Be as bad as you want, just avoid getting caught.”
Harry also participated virtually in the Diana Award ceremony, where he took the opportunity to thank the 180 young philanthropists for helping to “keep his voice alive”.
“Today, we are reflecting on what would have been my mother’s 61st birthday. And this year also marks 25 years since her passing. There isn’t a day for the past two and a half decades that I haven’t thought about the mark she left not only on me and my brother, but on all of our lives,” he said.
He added that he sees his mother’s legacy on a daily basis.
“I see his legacy in all of you, in a Diana Award community that spans generations. I see her legacy every time I meet with families, young people and children from every corner of the world. And I see my mother’s legacy when I look at my own children every day.”
Harry assured that it is a special year to remember her and to reflect on life. “This is a special year, and I hope we take more time not only to remember her as she lived, but to reflect on the life she continues to lead through so many, including the young change-makers who are with us today.”
“My mother instilled in me, and in all of us, a drive to speak out and fight for a better world. And now, as a husband and father, my mother’s voice is even stronger in my life,” he stressed.
“All of you have helped keep her voice alive by showing the world how every little action counts, how kindness is still valued and how our world can be better if we choose to make it so,” he said.
