Regal Royalty

I know the Princess of Wales, Diana, wasn't born into royalty- she married into it. But wow.. what she did with her position as Princess is a legacy that still lives today. We know now how depressed she was and how she hated the limelight, and we've always known how charitable she was, but now we can see those same qualities in her sons.

I have to admit, I wasn't very excited about the possibilities of Harry and William being raised by Camilla and Prince Charles. Diana was a MUCH better role model for her boys. She didn't have a lot of time with them, but she made such an impression that Prince Harry is now following in her footsteps.

Yes, the same Prince Harry who wore a swaztika band to a costume party. The same Prince Harry who graduated from Sandhurst earlier this month as an Army officer, determined to lead his men into the GWOT in Afghanistan or Iraq. He's started his own AIDS foundation in Africa, appropriately called "Sentebale", which means "Forget me not" in Lesotho. Harry co-founded the charity with Lesotho's Prince Seeiso, who lost his mother in 2003. Prince Harry has been to Lesotho on numerous occassions assisting organizations aimed at helping children affected by AIDS.

Good on ya, Harry. Your Mum would be SO proud.
