The Duke and Duchess of Sussex – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on Friday shared an inspirational quote from Princess Diana on their joint Instagram account.
“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry added to the caption: “Words have the power to inspire, which is why we’re happy to share some of our favorite quotes.
“From members of the public to public figures, from teachers and students to young leaders, we begin with a quote from Diana, Princess of Wales.”
Although the post was the first time Meghan,38, and Harry,34, have mentioned Prince Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana by name on social media, the couple included a special nod to her in a picture they shared of baby Archie on Mother’s Day, according to People magazine.
In 2017, Prince Harry called his late mother his “ideal role model.”
“I think she had a lot in common with everybody but also she certainly listened in a very, very short space of time,” Harry said at the time.
“In society, we suffer from this illusion or this reality where some problems get so big that nobody wants to get involved. She was the one that changed that,” he continued. “I will always look up to her as being my ideal role model.”
Princess Diana, the first wife of Prince Charles was the mother of Prince William and Prince Harry. She died on August 31, 1997 at the age of 36.
According to various reports, the princess of Wales died in hospital on August 31, 1997 as a result of injuries sustained in a car crash in the Pont de l’Alma road tunnel in Paris, France. Her companion, Dodi Fayed, and the driver of the Mercedes S280, Henri Paul, were pronounced dead at the scene. A fourth passenger in the car, bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones, was seriously injured but survived.
