Now that the Duke of Sussex has his own son, little Archie Harrison, he probably has a newfound respect for how hard it can be for parents, especially if their child is misbehaving. But, kids will be kids and even royal children aren't immune from a good telling-off from their mum. Ahead of the Channel 5 documentary, Princess Diana: In Her Own Words, take a look at a sweet throwback video shared on Instagram by @royalty_dr, as an amused Princess Diana gives her son a talking to. 

The clip shows Harry, Diana, Sarah Ferguson, and a young Princess Beatrice on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, quite possibly at a Trooping the Colour. But after little Beatrice playfully pokes Harry in the back a few times, he turns around and uses his elbow to nudge her arm out of the way. This didn’t sit well with Diana who pushed Harry's arm down and then moved him away from Beatrice before shooting Sarah a knowing look and cracking a smile.

Harry and his mother were very close and unsurprisingly her death in August 1997 hit him hard. Just seven days after her fatal car accident, she was buried and photos of Harry, his older brother, Prince William; his father, Prince Charles; his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh; and his maternal uncle, Charles Spencer, walking behind her coffin in the funeral procession made headlines.

Speaking in 2017 about that day, Harry revealed to Newsweek: "My mother had just died, and I had to walk a long way behind her coffin, surrounded by thousands of people watching me while millions more did on television. I don't think any child should be asked to do that, under any circumstances. I don't think it would happen today."
