Harry Remembers Diana In Advice To Boy Who Lost His Mom Too
Prince Harry once again showed his sensitive side!
On Tuesday, during a public walkabout in New Zealand, Harry spent several minutes talking with a young boy, Otia Nante.
Otia, who stood in the crowd with his nan Te Nante, handed the Prince a hand-written note describing how his mom had died when he was just one year old.

As he handed the letter, his grandmother said, “he looks up to you because he actually lost his mummy, too.”
Prince Harry reassured the boy with a sweet advice.
He said: “Life will always be alright, you know that, yeah?
”I made it to 34 years old and life is great. I’ve got a beautiful wife and a baby on the way. “Your life is gonna be sorted, don’t you worry about that.”
Prince Harry also supported Otia’s grandmom saying: “You’re doing a great job nan. Nans are so important in our lives.”
Harry and William’s mom, Princess Diana, dies 21 years ago, in a tragic car crash in Paris. Prince William was at the age of 15 and Prince Harry 12 when they lost their mom.
However, only last year, Harry revealed how he was still struggling to come to terms with the loss in his late twenties.
He said: “I can safely say that losing my mum at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but my work as well.
“I have probably been very close to a complete breakdown on numerous occasions when all sorts of grief and sort of lies and misconceptions and everything are coming to you from every angle.
Harry’s recollection of that tragic day can still overwhelm him.
In an interview last year with Newsweek, he revealed: “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.”
