Prince Harry on losing mom Princess Diana

Prince Harry recently shared a moment with a stranger who is also about to have his first child, and they bonded over missing their late mothers.

A 31-year-old Dutch veteran named Dennis van der Stroom described a conversation he had with Harry after meeting him at an event in support of the 2020 Invictus Games, an Olympics-like event in which veteran athletes compete.

"I told Harry about my mother and we talked about our shared experience of missing a mum," he told Hello! "He said missing a mother is like missing some kind of security, how you need that as a son and it falls away when you lose your mother. He said he meets a lot of people in his work who have lost a mother, father, sister, brother or relatives and when he hears their story, as he heard my story, he said he doesn’t feel so alone."

Some theorists also think the baby's name, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, might have a connection to Diana because she had an ancestor named Archibald Campbell, 9th Earl of Argyll, who lived in the 17th Century.

And, of course, if Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a girl next, they can always just call her Diana.
