Never Forgotten: How Prince Harry Keeps Late Mother Princess Diana A Part Of His New Life In California
Prince Harry will never stop remembering his late mother, Princess Diana.
During the royal's recent interview with Today host Hoda Kotb, which aired on Wednesday, April 20, the 37-year-old opened up about how he cherishes the memory of his mother over twenty years after her death.
Diana tragically died in 1997, when Harry was only 12 years old, but now he keeps her memory at the forefront of his new life in Santa Barbara, Calif., where he lives with wife Meghan Markle and their two children: Archie, 2, and Lilibet, 10 months.

Diana — who had a complicated history with the royal family following her divorce from Prince Charles — was only 36-years-old when she was involved in a fatal car accident in Paris, France, where she later died in the Pitie-Salpetriere Hospital from injuries sustained in the crash.
A week later, the beloved Princess was laid to rest in a heartbreaking ceremony at Westminster Abbey, which was televised and watched by millions of people around the world.
Harry told Hoda he keeps his mother's memory alive for his own family by having pictures of her around his sprawling estate in California.

He also revealed he feels his mother around him all the time, even in her death, telling Hoda that Diana's presence is "constant."
"It has been [constant] over the last two years, more so than ever before," he explained. "It's almost as if she's done her bit with my brother [Prince William] and now she's very much helping me."
"[She] got him set up and now she's helping me set up, that's what it feels like. He's got his kids; I've got my kids," Harry continued of the Duke of Cambridge and his family.
"I feel her presence in almost everything that I do now," he said, adding that their mother is "watching over us."
"I'm sure she's proud of you," Hoda chimed in, with Harry responding, "I'm sure she is," with a smile.
