Prince Harry: I Hope My Mother Would Be Proud of Me

Prince Harry Hopes Princess Diana Would Be Proud of His Charity Work

Originally posted 02/27/2013 04:15PM

Prince Harry spoke about his charity work Wednesday night in South Africa – and of hoping that his mother, Princess Diana, would be proud of his efforts.

Diana worked to help those with HIV/Aids and Harry, 28, is doing the same in the tiny kingdom of Lesotho that he has been visiting this week.

The Prince spoke after a whirlwind visit to the kingdom. There, he checked up on the work of the charity Sentebale that he set up with friend Prince Seeiso in memory of their late mothers.

Addressing a gala dinner in Johannesburg in neighboring South Africa, Harry said he hoped both mothers would be looking down with pride. "I hope she would be proud of what we are trying to achieve in her name," he said of Queen Mamohato Bereng Seeiso. "I hope that my mother will be proud, too."

Some of the gorgeous and historic dresses worn by Princess Diana are headed for auction – again!

The most famous of the 10 dresses, which were originally sold by Diana in New York a few months before her death in 1997, is the midnight blue gown that Diana wore as she twirled around the dance floor at the White House with John Travolta in 1985. Diana graced the Victor Edelstein-designed velvet dress for the state dinner given by President Ronald and Nancy Reagan in honor of the princess's then-husband, Prince Charles.

London-based auctioneer Kerry Taylor is selling the gowns, with the collection including some of the princess's favorite designers: Zandra Rhodes, Catherine Walker and Bruce Oldfield.

Leave it to royal reporter and Diana biographer Andrew Morton to reveal the "unknown male" in the 1980s photo of the late princess making the rounds Friday as it heads to auction.

Morton, who wrote Diana, Her True Story, was familiar with the image from when he was originally "given the task of trying to identify the boy in the picture."

"The young man was Adam Russell, the great-grandson of former prime minister Stanley Baldwin, and now a deer farmer in Dorset," Morton tells the U.K.'s Guardian of when he conducted interviews for his book.

Why Was This Photo of Princess Diana Hidden from Public View? | Princess Diana

Princess Diana Photo, Never Seen Before, Hits Auction Block

She was one of the world's most photographed women, but now a new and unseen photo of the late Princess Diana is causing a stir nearly 16 years after her death as it goes to public auction.

The black-and-white photo shows a teenage Diana on a Swiss ski holiday lounging on the lap of a young man, who has been identified as Adam Russell, the great-grandson of former prime minister Stanley Baldwin. He is reading a book and resting it on Diana's shoulder.

A bottle of liquor rests on a window ledge above her head, creating an image that was certain to be unfit for a future princess, and is one that was marked "not to be published," according to Britain's Daily Mirror, which purchased the picture in Feb. 26, 1981 – just two days after the then-Diana Spencer was engaged to Prince Charles.

The photo was kept hidden in the paper's archives until it was purchased seven years ago by the private Caren Archive. It is now set for auction by RR Auctions in New Hampshire, and is being described as a "salacious teenage image of the future princess."

While visiting the Assyakirin Mosque in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on Friday, the Duchess of Cambridge followed religious protocol and donned a headscarf while entering the house of worship.

But she's hardly the first royal woman to do so while visiting an Asian nation.

During a trip to Istanbul, Turkey, in 2007, the Duchess of Cornwall followed custom, wearing a gray headscarf to enter the Eyüp Sultan Mosque while visiting with Prince Charles.

They've arrived!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge touched down in Singapore, the first stop on their official tour to Southeast Asia to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee.

In a nod to her hosts, Kate, 30, wore a pink kimono-style dress with an orchid pattern by British designer Jenny Packham as they arrived Tuesday.

One of their first stops was at the city's Botanic Gardens to view their famed orchids, including one named for the couple and one named after William's late mother, Princess Diana.

Earl Spencer Names New Baby for His Late Sister Princess Diana

Princess Diana's legacy lives on – thanks to her brother, Earl Spencer.

Spencer, 47, and his wife Countess Spencer, 39, have welcomed their first child together, a healthy 8 lb., 14 oz. baby girl whom they have named Lady Charlotte Diana Spencer – after his beloved late sister.

"She's adorable," the proud (seven-time) father told London's Daily Mail.

Although the couple hadn't settled on a name before the birth, Spencer had the newborn's late aunt Diana in mind. "I very much wanted her commemorated in the naming of our daughter," he said.

It appears that she's done just that – in the looks department, at least.

Watts, 43, (who will star in next year's biopic Caught in Flight about Diana, Princess of Wales) was photographed in London filming scenes and bearing an uncanny resemblance to the late royal.

Prince William Missed Diana on His Wedding Day

Originally posted 05/29/2012 11:15AM

Despite the overabundance of dignitaries in attendance on his 2011 wedding day to Kate Middleton, there was one person missing, though very much on Prince William's mind: his mother, Princess Diana.

"Very difficult" is how the prince recalls her absence that day, as he reveals during an ABC interview airing Tuesday night, as part of The Jubilee Queen with Katie Couric.

"I sort of prepared myself beforehand so that I was sort of mentally prepared ... I didn't want any wobbly lips or anything going on," says William, 29. "It's the one time since she's died, where I've ... thought to myself it would be fantastic if she was here, and just how sad really for her, more than anything, not being able to see it."
