On Friday, Prince Harry appeared at a virtual ceremony for the Diana Awards, which honors young people between the ages of 9 and 25 who are working to improve the lives of others. It was established in 1999 in memory of Princess Diana, and Harry gave viewers a moving speech about his mother’s legacy. The ceremony was held on her 61st birthday.
He begins by saying that there hasn’t been a day since her death that he hasn’t “thought about the mark she left” on everyone around him.
“I see her legacy in all of you,” Harry explained. “I see her legacy in a Diana Award community that spans generations. I see her legacy every time I meet family, youth and children from all over the world. And, I see my mother’s legacy as I look at my children every day. “

He went on to say that Diana taught him to strive for a “better world”, and that since having children, he has gotten to know her better. Harry has two children with wife Meghan Markle, 3-year-old Archie and 1-year-old Lilibet, named after her great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth.
He continued, “Now, as a husband and a parent, my mother’s voice is even stronger in my life. You all helped keep her voice alive by showing the world how every little act counts, how kindness is still appreciated, and our world. How better it could be if we chose to do so. “
At the end of his speech, he concluded, “I know the memory I hold of my mother will never fade, because I see her spirit in each one of you. So thank you guys for keeping the fire burning for her.”
