Prince Harry Still ‘Mourning His Mother’ Like a ‘Young Boy,’ Says Language Expert
Losing someone close to you is never easy, no matter how old you are. When they pass away suddenly, with no warning whatsoever, it is even more difficult to process the loss. When Princess Diana was killed in a 1997 Paris car crash, people all over the world were saddened by what had happened, and the effects of her death are still felt to this very day.
For her two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, it was more difficult than anyone ever could have imagined. Not only were the two boys, who were at the time, ages 15 and 12 respectively, dealing with the unexpected loss of a parent, but they were doing it in front of the entire world.
Billions of people were watching as the two princes walked behind their beloved mother’s casket, both with heartbroken looks on their faces. Although more than 20 years have passed, there is no doubt that Diana is still greatly missed. In fact, a language expert says that Prince Harry is still “mourning his mother” like a “young boy.”
Prince Harry is sixth in line to the British throne
Prince Harry is one of the most famous people in the entire world and has been since the day he was born. Also known as the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry is currently married to former American actress Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and the couple has a young son, Archie Harrison.
Although Prince Harry still remains sixth in line to the British throne, behind his father, brother, nephews, and niece, he and Meghan stepped down from royal duties in a move called “Megxit” and relocated to a new home in Montecito, California.
According to People, they were very excited to embark on their new journey, and they have been keeping pretty busy since the move. The couple took on a “progressive new role” by becoming financially independent and raising their son away from the royal spotlight. They have been working with charitable causes, and recently launched their first podcast titled Archewell Audio.
The tragic death of Princess Diana
Prince Harry was the youngest son of Princess Diana, and judging from the pictures of him as a young child, he adored her more than words can say. This really doesn’t come as much of a surprise, since Princess Diana was quite open about prioritizing her roles as a mother first and a princess second.
She doted on Prince Harry and Prince William right up until her death in 1997 when she was involved in a fatal car accident in Paris. Oprah Magazine reports that the driver of the car that Princess Diana and several others were traveling in was being chased by photographers, ultimately crashing into a pillar in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel, resulting in the death of the princess, her boyfriend Dodi Fayed, and their driver, Henri Paul.
The next few days were filled with shock and sadness, and Queen Elizabeth summed it up perfectly by saying that Diana was “an exceptional and gifted human being.”
Prince Harry is still ‘mourning his mother’ like a ‘young boy’
Prince Harry definitely has a busy life, but that doesn’t mean that he has forgotten about his love for his mother. According to Express, a language expert reports that he is still “mourning” her, and it shows.
What led to this conclusion? Well, it had to do with the launch of the couple’s Archewell website, where the mission statement speaks volumes. The message, titled “A Letter For 2021”, starts off by saying: “I am my mother’s son,” and talks about kindness and compassion, two things that Diana was known for.
The language expert Judi James, says how the message seems to show how Prince Harry still feels the pain of his mother’s death, even after all these years, and how he misses her so deeply. Says James: “there is the suggestion that Harry is the heir of Diana’s passion for compassion,”
She goes on to say that “It also sounds like a bid to inherit her popularity and the love people around the world had for her.” Seems like Harry has the same love in his heart for his mother as always, and that will continue forever.
