Prince Harry from Hello!
 
In a rare interview, the late Princess Diana's son Prince Harry has given an intimate look at the depth of his involvement with the young Aids sufferers he befriended while on his charity visit to southern Africa.

The Forgotten Kingdom – Prince Harry In Lesotho shows the young prince during his recent two-month stay, where he got a personal look at the devastation Aids has wreaked on the region. He candidly speaks about his desire to help the situation, and how he hopes to carry on the torch of Diana's charitable legacy.

"I've always wanted to do this," he says, adding: "I believe I've got a lot of my mother in me, basically, and I just think she'd want us to do this."

In images that mirror Diana's work, Harry is shown helping to build shelters and cradling young AIDS patients. He was particularly moved by Mutsu, a four-year-old Aids orphan, and the plight of an eight-month-old rape victim, who was "completely emotionless" as he held her in his arms. "It was horrible," says the Prince, who has since visited the little girl to check on her progress. "If I can, I would like to try to support her in her growing up, her education and everything."

Harry admits he was affected by press criticism – some newspapers branded the Lesotho trip as a PR move – but vowed to continue his quest, saying he's "not out here for the sympathy vote". "I've always been like this," he says. "This is my side that no one gets to see. I'm not going to take a camera crew everywhere I go with me when I'm trying to help in different countries."

The royal also struck out at those who continue to shed negative light on his mother's life. "It's just a shame that, after all the good she's done, even this far on, people can't bring out the good in her," he says, later remarking: "I don't want to take over from her because I never will. I don't think anyone can. But I want to try and carry it on to make her proud."

Does anyone know where to see this film? I am in America and am betting my chances are slim. Still, it is great to hear of him talk of his legacy and understand his place in it. If he continues like this, he WILL be loved maybe not at the same level as Diana...but he will certainly be up there. Seeing someone care like this is rare...and amazing.

People think me daft when I say this, but he reminds me so much more of his mother than his older brother does--he has her charm, her caring, her mischevous streak.

Martine 09-17-2004 02:10 PM

Lucys, i think the same thing, I think Harry is so much like his mother...
I remember (not 100% sure though) reading somewhere that Diana herself said a couple of times that out of the 2 boys, Harry looks most like her from character
off course William has a lot of qualities of his mother too

I Don’t Like Him Very Much,i Don‘t Known Why。

It might just be the drinking. Or the drugs. Or the smoking. Or the sometimes public sexual behavior.

Yeah, but Gates leads a much more private life.
