Mum was 'mad' – thinking of her keeps us going, says Prince Harry

Prince Harry has revealed he thinks of his late mother Princess Diana every day, and wonders what she would make of what he and William are doing now. 

"Whatever we do, wherever we are and whoever we're with, I particularly always wonder what she'd think, what she'd be doing if she was with us now," said the 25-year-old.


"If she'd be sitting here having a laugh, whether she'd be in the background sticking her tongue out or whether she'd be playing football with the children. 

"That's what keeps us going every day – that thought of what would she be like if she was around today. 

"It's refreshing because we both have our own opinion of what she'd be like and 'mad' would be one word to describe her." Harry made the comments during a moving interview given during their joint tour of Africa last week.

The brothers were asked if their late mother would be proud of their charity work. William replied: "We'd like to think she's proud of us… Obviously when our military careers come to an end then we can get more wholeheartedly into it. 

"She'd be very proud of what Harry’s done [with] Sentebale bearing in mind that it's actually his own charity that he started. "Hopefully she’d be really chuffed." The royal sibling's comments can be seen in an interview which will be broadcast on ITV's Tonight programme on Thursday evening at 7.30pm.
