Prince Harry opens up about Princess Diana’s death

Prince Harry has opened up about the tragic death of his mother, Princess Diana, during a moving speech.

The red-headed royal let his emotions show while speaking at the Mamohato Children’s Centre in Lesotho last week.

Harry discussed how losing his mother affected him and how it’s been able to help relate to other orphans and motivate him to help.


“I knew there would always be a gaping hole that could never be filled,​” the 31-year-old said. “The children at the center were far younger than me, and of course, their situation was a great deal more challenging than my own. Nonetheless, we shared a similar feeling of loss, having a loved one—in my case a parent—snatched away so suddenly.”​

The Mamohato Children’s Centre was founded by Harry in association with his charity Senteble, which was built to house kids who have lost parents to life-threatening diseases.
