Nearly 22 years after his mother, the late Princess Diana of Wales, posed for a photo on the steps of a London hostel, Prince Harry has followed in her footsteps.
As the prince entered the hostel he was greeted by a familiar face in a photograph prominently displayed on the hostel's wall. The photo featured his late mother posing on the hostel's staircase, arms crossed, with a group of young people around her. The photo was taken in June of 1995, when the princess helped open the hostel.
“She really connected with the young people, and returned in a private capacity to play ball games with them,” Martin Houghton-Brown, U.K. chief executive of the Depaul group of hostels, said of the late princess, People magazine reports.
In his usual jovial fashion the prince took the opportunity to recreate the photo, arms crossed and everything, with members of The Running Charity.
Both Harry and his brother William have taken an interest in following their mother's charitable footsteps by supporting those in need and particularly those suffering from illness surrounded by stigma like mental health, HIV and AIDs.
August 31, 2017 marks 20 years since the tragic death of Princess Diana in Paris. William and Harry were only 15 and 12 when she passed.
