Adorable video of Prince Harry and Diana goes viral in wake of royal wedding
A truly adorable video of Prince Harry and Princess Diana has gone viral in the wake of the royal wedding.
Reportedly shot in 1987, when Harry was just two or three years old, the footage shows him in a red car with his mother. Turning to the window, the little boy sees the paparazzi flashing their cameras at him and immediately cheekily sticks his tongue out and makes a funny face, only to be grabbed and taken away by Diana.
Uploaded to Imgur, the video hit almost 500,000 views within eight hours of being posted. Unsurprisingly, it has reminded many people of an equally cute moment that happened at Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding on May 19.
A rather sassy Princess Charlotte made hearts melt - and showed off her mischievous side - when she stuck her tongue out at photographers as she arrived at St. George's Chapel on Saturday. Channelling her uncle, she hit the headlines, managing to draw attention away from royal bride Meghan, for just a second.
The video of Harry and his late mother, who tragically died in a car crash on 31 August, 1997 thrilled people on Imgur, who took the opportunity to assess the pair's relationship.
"She looks so frustrated for a moment, (probably overwhelmed like anyone with baby can get) then you see the joy on her face & the laughter," wrote user MaximillionGledhill, while RuthBSparkleBandit commented saying "Ahhhh she loved and adored those boys, still does from far away".
Looking back at Harry's childhood, the young troublemaker had quite a penchant for sticking out his tongue. The royal, now aged 33, famously made a silly face out of another car window after a visit to the hospital to see his newly-born cousin, Princess Beatrice, in 1988.
He was also caught showing his tongue for the camera, much to the surprise of his mother, Princess Diana while watching the Trooping The Colour from the balcony of Buckingham Palace, with Prince William, Lady Gabriella Windsor And Lady Rose Windsor, in June 1988.
The Duke of Sussex's wedding was full of touching tributes to his mother, who was famously referred to as "the people's Princess". Harry personally picked flowers for Meghan's bouquet from her garden in Kensington Palace, and guests were asked to sing a favourite hymn of Diana's that was also sung at her funeral. In addition, many members of Diana's family were in attendance, with her sister Jane Fellowes giving one of the readings.
