When the news of Princess Diana's death broke, the whole world was struck by tragedy. She had been involved in a car crash at Pont de l'Alma in Paris.
She lost her life as a result of the injuries she had sustained.
No one was more affected than her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, who were just 15 and 12, respectively, at that time.
Not only had they lost their mother, but they had to grief under the scrutinity of the whole world, and one can only imagine how that felt.
It was a trying time for the royals, and it took a lot of effort from the Queen to protect these little kids from the haunting eye of the public.
Fortunately, over two decades later, the brothers seem to be doing pretty well, and they find strength in their sad experience to mentor others who are going through similar pain.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were on the last location for their first official royal tour. The couple had had a splendid start, with gifts and colorful experiences. However, nothing is likely to match Prince Harry's amazing gesture when he reached out to a young boy, Otia Nate, who lost his mother.
He reached deep into his own sad experience to inspire the boy, whom the Duke met at one of the royal engagements in Auckland, New Zealand, to overcome his own struggle,
Otia, 6, lost his mother when he was just a year old. She took her own life. The sad boy wrote a letter about experience, and it motivated the Prince to reach out to the young lad:
"Life will always be alright; you know that? I've made it to 34 years old, and life is great.
I have a beautiful wife and baby on the way. Your life is going to be sorted, don't you worry about that."

The Prince went further ahead to motivate the boy to be the best rugby player he can. Rugby is the most popular sport in the region. And it is quite certain the boy will hold on to those words.
Prince Harry himself has admitted to long-lasting grief over his mother's death, claiming he had it all bottled in, without really getting over it. It is quite amazing that he was able to channel that pain and energy and inspire other people.
Well, that is what it takes to be a royal.
The couple's tour is about to come to an end, and it has been filled with joy, drama, surprises, and proud moments.
Prince Harry did well to thank Otia's Nan. Hopefully, this little boy is keep Prince Harry's inspiring words close to his heart for a very long time.
