Ages before the Prince decided to take matters into his own hand, his mother, the legendary Princess Diana had already laid the foundations for his son by breaking social norms and stereotypical ways of the UK Sovereign.

Rae says the late Princess of Wales was of the opinion that her youngest, Prince Harry was better equipped for the role to be the future King. In fact, “It was also used to make Harry feel that extra special,” the commentator added. The overwhelming connection between the Duke and his late mother became all the more evident through this tell-all memoir and bombshell docuseries. Hence, this does not come as a surprise. 

What were the other royal nicknames for Prince Harry (and Prince William)?

Speaking of nicknames, further digging into Prince Harry’s Spare, it became evident that the Duke refers to his elder brother, the Prince of Wales, William as Willy. And the future king calls his now estranged brother, not Harry but “Harold” as his actual name. Nonetheless, her unique nickname to the Duke still goes strong as Twitter is all for it even today keeping aside Prince William. 

Talking about Prince William, has yet another amusing nickname coined by his father, King Charles, and mother, Princess Diana. They affectionately called their eldest, “Wombat” with W aligning with the W in William. It was reportedly given to him by Princess Diana herself.
