On Wednesday, meanwhile, Prince Harry's exclusive interview with Today's Hoda Kotb aired and it was during the candid chat that Meghan Markle's husband revealed that his children, Archie, three, and Lili, who turns one in June, refer to Princess Diana as "Grandma Diana".

Asked whether he tells his kids, especially Archie, about his late mother, Harry told Hoda: "Yes, very much so. I don't tell him all the stuff that's happened, but certainly that this is Grandma Diana, and we've got a couple of photos up in the house."

He also added that he feels her presence constantly. "It has been over the last two years more so than ever before," he said.

"It is almost as though she's done her bit with my brother and now she's very much like helping me. She got him set up and now she's helping me set up. That's what it feels like. He's got his kids, I've got my kids."

He added: "She's watching over us."

"I've got a photo of her in his nursery," he said, before adding: "and it was one of the first words that he said — apart from 'mama,' 'papa,' it was then 'grandma'. Grandma Diana."
