Is Prince Harry More Like Princess Diana or Prince Charles?

The late Princess Diana is someone who will never be forgotten. She touched the hearts of many people around the world, especially those in need. Diana was many things to many people – she was an excellent mother to her two children, William and Harry, as well as a role model, a humanitarian, and more.

That is why Diana was known as the “People’s Princess,” even after her marriage to Prince Charles came to an end. We can certainly say the princess left behind a wonderful legacy, one that her sons are both choosing to honor through their work as royals. 

Prince William and his younger brother, Prince Harry, were both young boys when they unexpectedly lost their mother after a tragic accident. Although that fateful night was over 20 years ago, both princes still speak glowingly of their mother to this day.

She lives on in their hearts, and they are sharing her memory with their wives and children. With Prince Harry being called the “People’s Prince,” many fans are left wondering if he is more like Princess Diana or Prince Charles. Let’s take a look.

Harry has a soft spot for children

Just like Diana, Harry relates to children in a unique and special way. He has been known to single them out in crowds, always greeting his younger fans with a smile and sometimes even a warm hug.

Kids seem to love him right back, as there are many photographs of children gazing at Harry adoringly. Diana was the same way whenever she interacted with kids, often kneeling down to their level to greet them and listen to what they had to say.

Meghan and Harry are planning on raising Archie away from the royal spotlight

Although she was married to a future king, Diana didn’t want her sons to get caught up in the privileges of royal life. She wanted them to have a “normal” upbringing, experiencing things such as standing in line to buy fast food or volunteering to help those in need.

Harry even fondly remembers a childhood trip to Disney World, where he had the time of his life exploring the theme park and enjoying the rides with his beloved mother.

Just like Diana, Harry wants to give his son a “normal” life, and although Archie is barely a month old, they have plans to keep him away from the royal spotlight.

Harry is a humanitarian

Many years ago, we remember the extensive humanitarian work that Princess Diana did, and Harry currently does the same thing. In fact, it was while doing humanitarian work in Botswana that Harry realized that he was in love with Meghan Markle.

The Duke of Sussex has done extensive work helping others and has supported charities and foundations including Sentebale, the National AIDS Trust, Walking With the Wounded, and many more.

As we all know, Harry founded the Invictus Games, a sporting event for sick or wounded armed services personnel. We can only imagine just how proud Diana would be of Harry today.

Is Prince Harry more like Princess Diana or Prince Charles?

Harry may be close with his father, Prince Charles, but we do have to say that he seems to be slightly more like Princess Diana.

Harry has a heart of gold, just like his late mother did, and he is not afraid to let it show. He is always going out of his way to help others and spread his love and compassion around the world whenever it is possible.

It is really no surprise that Harry has earned the nickname “People’s Prince,” just another reason as to why Diana would be so delighted by Harry’s royal work.
