Grace Higgins | May 10th, 2019

Prince Harry says he wishes his mother Princess Diana were alive to see his first child. The Prince and his wife former ‘Suits’ actress Meghan Markle welcomed their first child, a boy on Monday. The baby was born in a London hospital under the strictest of security. Prince Harry traveled alone to the Netherlands on Thursday for a trip that was arranged prior to the birth of his son, Archie. Harry’s mother Prince Diana died in a Paris tunnel in August of 1997, after being chased by paparazzi.

Dennis van der Stroon a veteran and friend of the Prince was present in the Netherlands as Harry was there to kick off the countdown of the 2020 ‘Invictus Games. Stroon said he chatted with Harry about the loss of his mother and the toll that it still takes on him. Stroon said, “Harry talked about how having a small child was his new focus. I told him how a few months ago I was struggling with my mental health but my wife’s pregnancy gave me new focus. Above all Harry said he was just amazed at all the small miracles in the world, and how his little tiny baby has made so many people happy.”

Stroon said, ‘Harry is especially struggling with not having his mother in his life right now. He’s experiencing all the joy that a first time parent has, and he is very sad, that Princess Diana is not here to see his son or know his wife.’ Stroon also lost his own mother prematurely, and they both could commiserate about that. Harry said, “Missing a mother is like missing some kind of security. How you need your mother as a son and it just falls away if your mother is gone.”
