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


    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.

    This afternoon, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on Commonwealth Day, alongside Her Majesty The Queen and Members of The Royal Family. The Commonwealth is a global network of 54 countries, working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals, and the Service today seeks to highlight the vast community which spans every geographical region, religion and culture, embracing diversity amongst its population of 2.4 billion people, of which 60 percent are under 30 years old. As President and Vice-President of the @Queens_Commonwealth_Trust, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been passionate advocates of the Commonwealth having spent many years working closely with the next generation of Commonwealth leaders. The theme of the Commonwealth for 2020 is ‘Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming', placing emphasis on youth, the environment, trade, governance, and ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and innovation. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, the Service celebrates the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.

    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.
