Watch a 3-year-old Prince Harry embarrass his mother
At the height of her fame, Princess Diana was constantly hounded by the paparazzi. Ultimately, photographers played a part in her untimely death as they chased her car down and continued photographing her after it crashed.
But it was when the press interfered with her children’s lives that they really got to her. Princess Diana’s brother, Charles Spencer, recalled one particular run-in with photographers that left her livid.

“I remember she was furious when she’d just taken Harry to school. He was very small, four or five,” he said. “The English papers had taken pictures of him sticking his tongue out and said what a cheeky boy he was. But the photographers had been sticking their tongues out at Harry. And what four or five-year-old boy doesn’t stick his tongue out back if an adult’s doing that to them? It was the sheer dishonesty of it, that they were trying to say he was this impossibly rude kid whereas they’d actually provoked him on purpose. Diana felt furious about that.”
For his part, Prince Harry seems to have turned out all right. But it couldn’t have been easy growing up under so much scrutiny.
You can watch the clip in The Story of Diana, Part 1 on Hulu about one hour and 15 minutes in.
