Pictures of Prince Harry’s boarding school bedroom reveal a SWEET tribute to mother Diana
RARELY seen pictures of Prince Harry’s old school bedroom at Eton have emerged, revealing the close bond between the Duke of Sussex and his departed mother Princess Diana.
Like his father and brother, Harry was educated at independent schools and completed his education at the prestigious Berkshire college with two A levels.
Just before he left Eton in 2003, photographers were invited to snap pictures of the Duke of Sussex’s day-to-day school life.
The rarely seen photographs show Prince Harry posing at his desk, polishing his shoe, painting on a canvas and making a slice of toast in his house kitchen.
Like most students, the pictures of his bedroom reveal a few dirty mugs scattered around, a can of Lynx deodorant and posters of ladies in bikinis.
However, it seems like the Duke of Sussex also tried to make the bedroom “homey” by putting a black and white framed photo of his departed mother Princess Diana in pride of place on his desk.
The Royal, who was only 12-years-old when Princess Diana died following a tragic car crash in Paris, revealed in an interview last year the huge role Diana had in his life.
He told Newsweek: “My mother took a huge part in showing me an ordinary life, including taking me and my brother to see homeless people.
“Thank goodness I’m not completely cut off from reality.
“People would be amazed by the ordinary life William and I live.
“I am determined to have a relatively normal life, and if I am lucky enough to have children, they can have one too.”
Pictures of his father, Prince Charles, his Grandma, Her Majesty the Queen and his brother, Prince William, also made an appearance around his Eton room but in a more discrete way.
Despite the photographs showing a 18-year-old smiley Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex claimed in 2015 that he “didn’t enjoy” Eton and that he actually “wanted to be the bad boy”.
Former wild child Prince Harry was actually one of the least academic members of the Royal Family.
His A Level results included a B in Art and D in Geography.
Academics aside, Harry shined in many other ways during his school years, including being House Captain of Games, representing Eton at rugby, cricket and polo, and being a member of the Combined Cadet Force.
