Prince Harry was just a 12-year-old boy when he lost his mother, Princess Diana, to a tragic car crash in 1997. In the past few years, Prince Harry has been more vocal about losing his mother at such an early age.
"I can safely say that losing my mum at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but my work as well," Harry told "Bryony Gordon's Mad World."
"My way of dealing with it was sticking my head in the sand, refusing to ever think about my mom, because why would that help?"
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to wed in May, and they both decided to pay tribute to Princess Diana in the best way possible.
According to "OK!," Markle will be wearing the same tiara Princess Diana wore during her big day. This is one of Princess Diana's most famous jewelry pieces: The Spencer Tiara.
Apparently, the couple will also be selecting specific flowers to increase their tribute to Princess Diana. They have decided to use the flower Lily of the Valley, which was featured in Princess Diana's bouquet.
Over 175 years ago, Queen Victoria sparked a tradition with the meaning of these flowers. Lily of the Valley's typifies trust and the return of happiness.
According to Richard Fitzwilliams, a British publications consultant, said, "There will undoubtedly be an aspect or aspects of the wedding service that will link with Diana, perhaps by including one of her favorite hymns, 'I Vow to Thee My Country' which was sung at her funeral."
"It has been clear from his charitable work over the years but most especially in interviews in the months before the 20th Anniversary of Diana’s death that Harry takes his inspiration from her," Fitzwilliam continues.
Prince Harry said that Markle's engagement ring took six months to design, but included two stones from Princess Diana's jewelry collection.
"To make sure she's with us on this crazy journey together," Prince Harry said about the stones on the engagement ring.
“Not being able to meet his mom, it’s so important to me, to know that she is a part of this with us," Markle also said about her ring.
