Head bowed and fists clenched, a then 12-year-old Harry marched in the funeral procession behind his mother’s coffin for the world to see.
“I don’t think any child should be asked to do that, under any circumstances,” the Prince said of one of the darkest moments in the Royal family’s history.
Flanked by older brother, Prince William, father, Prince Charles, grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, and his uncle, Charles Spencer as they walked through the heart of London on September 6, 1997, Harry was just a child when Princess Diana died in a car crash in Paris. She was just 36.
"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," he told Newsweek magazine.
"I don’t think it would happen today."
