Prince Harry Reveals Where He Feels Closest to Late Mother Princess Diana

The Duke of Sussex has
revealed where he feels closest to his later mother, Princess Diana.

During his poignant keynote
speech on Nelson Mandela International Day, Prince Harry, 37, opened up about
his deep-rooted love for Africa.

Speaking at the United
Nations’ informal meeting, the dad-of-two explained how he first visited
the continent at the age of 13, and later sought refuge there following the death
of his mother Diana, Princess of Wales.

“Since I first visited
Africa at 13 years old, I’ve always found hope on the continent. In fact, for
most of my life, it has been my lifeline, a place where I have found peace and
healing time and time again,” he said.

Prince Harry concluded by
saying: “It’s where I’ve felt closest to my mother and sought solace after
she died, and where I knew I had found a soulmate in my wife. And it’s why so
much of my work is based there.”

This isn’t the first time that
the Duke has spoken candidly about his love for Africa. Back in 2019, Harry
carried out a working visit to Botswana where he helped local school children
plant trees for a community nature reserve.

Echoing his most recent
statement, Harry said: “Fifteen years I’ve been coming here, it’s a sense
of escapism, a real sense of purpose… I have some of my closest friends here
over the years. I came here in 1997 or 1998 straight after my mum died, so it
was a nice place to get away from it all. I feel deeply connected to this place
and to Africa.”

Beyond references to his late
mother, The Duke of Sussex’s speech covered a variety of important topics
including climate change, poverty, and racial intolerance. Harry was supported
by his wife Meghan Markle who beamed with pride during her husband’s
keynote speech.

Harry, meanwhile, donned a smart navy suit and tie, paired with a crisp white

  1. For goodness sake stop whining, Diana would been have disgusted with you. You should take a long, hard look closer to home. Recognise what is going on closer to home. She will leave you but only if she is offered a billion dollar bribe to go quietly. You know her, what she is capable of and her greed and ruthlessness.
