||In the days that followed Diana's death, the eyes of the world were fixed on the bewildered young man who walked behind his mother's coffin. Harry was believed to have taken the loss even harder than his elder sibling, which explains why Charles chose to have him stay close to Wills by enrolling him at competitive Eton, rather than the heir's own alma mater Gordonstoun.
It was widely understood that Harry struggled in his studies while excelling at sports. The young royal graduated with two A-levels, however, enabling him to pursue a career as an army officer. Too young to enter Sandhurst, Harry set about continuing his mother's humanitarian work by travelling to Aids-stricken Lesotho to work in an orphanage. "I always wanted to go to an Aids country to carry on my mother's legacy," he explained. "I don't want to take over from her because I never will and I don't think anyone can, but I want to carry it on and make her proud."
