  5. Tim Graham:

    I remember at the time thinking the words really familiar. I looked back at that speech that Diana gave at a charity engagement when she officially stood back from her official public duties. And the words almost mirrored each other, and it was like Harry had gone back and looked up what his mother had said at such an important time in his life because, of course, he cant ask her for that advice himself, so he instead looks at the path that she already took on. And so there are these moments where we see a similarity in the decision she makes. And Im sure that that in itself makes Harry realize that he is doing the right thing and that his mother would approve.
