    “For most of my life, it has been my lifeline, a place where I found peace and healing time and time again. It’s where I felt closest to my mother and sought solace after she died, and where I knew I had found a soulmate in my wife,” he said.

    After they began dating having been introduced to each other by mutual friends, Harry and Meghan had traveled to Africa many times for social, conservational, and philanthropic work. They also visited Botswana during the initial phase of their in 2016. It was just after two dates over two consecutive days in London.

    Harry recalled the spontaneity of the trip and how it turned out to be fantastic as that was where he found his soulmate: “I managed to persuade her to come and join me in Botswana. We camped out with each other under the stars. She came and joined me for five days out there, which was absolutely fantastic,” he said.

    The Duke of Sussex also chose a diamond from Botswana as the centerpiece of his ladylove’s engagement ring because the place meant a lot to them. He had the diamond placed in the middle of two smaller diamonds from Princess Diana’s personal collection.

    Prince Harry lost his mother, Princess Diana, in 1997. She was also actively involved in humanitarian causes in Africa. She also met Nelson Mandela to discuss the issues. Harry said the photo is “on my wall and in my heart every day.” He added, “When I first looked at the photo, straight away what jumped out is the joy on my mother’s face. The playfulness — cheekiness, even. The pure delight to be in communion with another soul so committed to serving humanity.”

    On July 1, which would’ve marked Princess Diana’s 61st birthday, Harry opened up about the impact she left on him, his family, and the world.

    Today, we’re reflecting on what would have been my mother’s 61st birthday. And this year is also 25 years since her passing. There isn’t a day during the past two and half decades where I haven’t thought about the mark she left not only on me and my brother [Prince William], but on all of our lives,” he said.

    Harry concluded, “My mother instilled in me, and in all of us, a drive to speak up and fight for a better world. And now, as a husband and a parent, my mother’s voice is even stronger in my life.”
