Prince Harry fondly recalled his childhood memories in an old video of ITV’s documentary, Diana: Her Life & Legacy.
Prince Harry has poked fun at the ‘bizarre’ outfits his mother Diana, Princess of Wales chose for himself and his older brother Prince William when they were children.
Harry was recalling his favourite childhood memories in ITV’s new documentary, Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy. During the show, he also revealed he would like to ask his late mother one question.
“One thing I would love to ask her now,” said Harry, smiling. “I genuinely think she got satisfaction out of dressing myself and William up in the most bizarre outfits – normally matching. It was weird shorts and little shiny shoes with the old clip-on. Looking back at the photos it just makes me laugh and I think, ‘How could you do that to us?’

In this old documentary, William and Harry spoke openly about their mother and shared their favourite memories. The royal siblings gave viewers a rare glimpse at never-before-seen childhood photos featuring Diana as a new mum. Sifting through the album at home, Harry was seen saying: “Happy memories, big, smiley faces. She smothered us with love, that’s for sure.”
The Prince added: “To myself and William, she was just the best mother ever. She would just engulf you and squeeze you as tight as possible and being as short as I was then, there was no escape, you were there for as long as she wanted to hold you. Even talking about it now, I can feel the hugs that she used to give us.

I miss that feeling, I miss having that mother to give you those hugs and that compassion that everyone needs. Behind closed doors, she was a very loving, caring mother and an incredibly funny person. I think she lived a lot of her life, especially in private, through us and I think that childish fun element really came out when she was spending time with us.”
