In addition to her work, Diana also tried to instill in her sons the idea of a normal life, even from behind the Palace walls.
“My mother took a huge part in showing me an ordinary life, including taking me and my brother [Prince William] to see homeless people,” Harry revealed. “Thank goodness I’m not completely cut off from reality. People would be amazed by the ordinary life William and I live. I do my own shopping. Sometimes, when I come away from the meat counter in my local supermarket, I worry someone will snap me with their phone. But I am determined to have a relatively normal life, and if I am lucky enough to have children, they can have one too. Even if I was king, I would do my own shopping.”
And if the royal is to have a family of his own, will it be with his current girlfriend, actress Meghan Markle? A source close to the prince told Newsweek that he isn’t in a rush to get engaged.

“They obviously get on very well and have a lot in common, but they have not known each other that long,” the source told the magazine. “They need to find out if they can have an ordinary relationship within a very unusual setting. I don’t think anything will happen until the end of the year.”
