Prince Harry: I think about Diana every day
Britain`s Prince Harry still thinks about his mother every single day.
The royal was just 12 years old when Princess Diana was killed in a Paris car crash in 1997. He is now 25, and has opened up about his grief in a candid joint interview with his brother Prince William, 28.
The princes are currently in Africa on an official tour, and have revealed that they think about their late mother constantly, and often wonder what she would think about the lives they live today.
"I think about her every day, I know I do and I`m sure William does as well, whatever we do, wherever we are and whoever we`re with," Harry said. "I particularly always wonder what she`d think, what she`d be doing if she was with us now.
"If she`d be sitting here having a laugh, whether she`d be in the background sticking her tongue out or whether she`d be playing football with the children.
"That`s what keeps us going every day - that thought of what would she be like if she was around today. It`s refreshing because we both have our own opinion of what she`d be like and `mad` would be one word to describe her."
Although they differ in their opinions of what they think Diana would be like if she were still alive today, they are united in their conviction that she would be proud of them. Both young men spend most of their free time working with charities, with Harry even setting up his own Sentebale charitable organisation in Lesotho.
"She`d be very proud of what Harry`s done [with] Sentebale bearing in mind that it`s actually his own charity that he started," William said. "Hopefully she`d be really chuffed."
William is next in line to the throne after his father Prince Charles and he is already relishing the chance to lead England. Harry is also looking forward to William becoming king because he is planning to give him advice every step of the way.
"I will always give him as much support as I can," Harry said. "Sometimes it`s probably not valued, which is understandable as the older brother always thinks they know best. But I always give him my opinion where it`s needed.
"When I think he`s wrong I`ll tell him he`s wrong. Nine times out of 10 he puts that in his back pocket and carries on anyway, but in later life who knows?"
