Princess Diana news: Harry gained this characteristic from his mum – but William didn’t
PRINCESS Diana’s youngest son Prince Harry inherited his late mother’s “naughty streak” unlike his older brother Prince William who has taken on the burden of his duty to serve the nation as the future king, according to royal biographers.
The Princess of Wales is said to have “broken the mould” when it came to parenting he two sons, who were the “centre of her world”, before she tragically died in a tragic car crash in 1997.
But it was Harry who inherited Princess Diana’s “naughty” and “fun side”, according to royal butler Paul Burrell.
Speaking in a recently unearthed clip from documentary ‘Princes Diana: The Quiet Revolution’, Mr Burrell said: “William, although he looks like his mother, he is more like his father.
“He’s studious, very careful, he’s very respectful, he’s duty bound.
“Harry on the other hand, is a hybrid of the Spencer’s red hair and the Windsors but he has his mother’s naughty streak.
“Harry is the fun guy, Harry was always the boy that would take apart the television set, the video recorder, he would have in bits, and would want them to put it back together again.
“Harry was always the soldier, William was always the general.”
Prince William and Prince Harry were just 15 and 12 respectively when their beloved mother was torn from them after she was killed in a car crash in a tunnel in Paris in 1997.

Prince Harry has continued his mother’s legacy, raising awareness over Aids and homelessness issues, not only in the UK but around the world.
Mr Burrell said the boys were “the centre of her world”.
He added: “She loved to have fun, she loved to giggle, she loved to play practical jokes.
“And she loved nothing more than cuddling up with her two boys, watching TV and watching game shows and soap operas.
“The boys were the centre of her world.”
Speaking during a 1995 Panorama interview, Princes Diana opened up about her hopes for her two sons.
She said: “I want them to have an understanding of people’s emotions, people’s insecurities, people’s distress and people’s hopes and dreams.”
