It’s no surprise that Prince Harry will follow in his mom’s footsteps when it comes to parenting. The famous prince has long stayed clear of some of the royal traditions expected of him. The latest, of course, have lots of people questioning his and Meghan’s choices regarding the royal baby. After all, she did have a baby shower (a big royal no-no) and the couple chose to withhold the delivery doctor's signature on the May 6 baby announcement.
Princess Diana was also known for breaking protocols as a mother. She broke tradition by giving birth in a hospital, was known to travel with her babies and did other normal “motherly” things like reprimand her children. The similarities between this mother and son are inherent in their personalities. Diana would even say to friends, “William is deep, like his dad, and stubborn, and Harry is a hothead like me. He does the first thing that comes into his head.”
Even though Princess Diana died at the age of 36, her memory will inevitably live on in her children and her grandchildren. Prince George has already gotten into the habit of opening his Christmas gifts ahead of the big day, a tradition that was passed onto Prince William from his mom. As Prince Harry takes on his new role as a father, you better believe similar traditions will be passed onto his children. Let’s take a look back at these endearing moments between his mother and him to get a hint for what some of those might look like.
