Princess Diana's shocking insight into Prince Harry's life revealed

‘Harry’s full of energy but he flips from one thing to another and then loses interest'

Prince Harry and Princess Diana share a moment at a playground

Princess Diana said something poignant about her youngest son before she died.

Princess Diana and her sons had a special relationship. It's no secret that the three were extremely close. But did some of Diana's earlier comments in an interview predict Harry's fate? 

How did Princess Diana foresee Harry's life?

Author and editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, Ingrid Seward, revealed how Diana said that Harry can “cope with anything" - which is telling considering his current situation.

She told the Daily Mail in 2019, “Diana told me William was very sensitive, and Harry was the artistic and lively one who could cope with anything.”

However, she also had a concern for Harry in that he lacked concentration and “flips from one thing to another”.

But while Diana's worry was predominantly in regards to Harry’s education, there are parallels to his current situation after stepping away from the royal family.

Ingrid added, “William was more academic than Harry, but he wasn’t finding Eton very easy at that time, although he had lovely friends there.

“[Diana] said Harry would go to Eton, otherwise he’d be singled out as being the one who wasn’t so bright, and she worried about his lack of concentration.

“She said, ‘Harry’s full of energy but he flips from one thing to another and then loses interest'.

Meghan and Harry announced they were to step away from the royal family and the spotlight in January.

Meghan has since admitted it had been “hard” to cope as a new mother in the public eye, and Harry said there were stories that “hurt” him.

He also confessed that he and his brother William were “on different paths”.

The couple initially moved to Canada with their one-year-old son, Archie, but recently relocated to Los Angeles, where Meghan's mum Doria Ragland lives.
