Prince Harry celebrated his 36th birthday on Tuesday and he has fulfilled one of Princess Diana's biggest wishes.

How has Prince Harry fulfilled Diana's wishes?

Harry and his wife Meghan stepped back from royal life earlier this year.

The decision shocked fans and even the royal family are thought to have been upset at the decision.

Meghan and Harry have now relocated to America, but royal expert Ingrid Seward has revealed that Diana would approve of the move.

"Diana often spoke about wanting to move to America; Harry’s actually done it," she told Vanity Fair.

“I’m still surprised, though, that Harry has left Britain.

“I know he has always hated the media and quite often hated being a prince, but I never thought he would leave his homeland.”

She added: “He’s always been such a lover of British life, polo, the countryside, the shooting, Scotland.

“That said, with Harry, it’s all or nothing, and it always has been.

"He doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s always done things differently.

“As a boy, people at the palace would say, ‘Harry’s Harry, he does his own thing,’ and he always has.”

While Omid Scobie, co-author of Finding Freedom, added, "This is a man who said he wanted to continue his mother’s work.

"We’ve long mourned Diana’s place on the humanitarian landscape, and here we have Harry, who embodies her values and is willing to dedicate his life to them.

“He’s at an age now where he’s taken that baton and is able to run with it in a way that he never would have been able to do within the House of Windsor.

“That’s very powerful and exciting.”
