Prince Harry was just 12 when Princess Diana died in 1997 and he admitted that she would be eager for him to begin a family if she were alive.

"I hope she's looking down with tears in her eyes, being incredibly proud of what we've established I suppose.

"I'm sure she's longing for me to have kids so she can be a grandmother again.

“You know, there's all sorts of places over the world where we were very lucky to have those moments with our mother," he said.
