In recent years, Prince Harry has focused on helping others. So while visiting a charity that benefits children, he made an effort to talk to the kids. But after he heard one 15-year-old’s story, he made a surprising decision: to have everyone clear out of the room.

Like Prince William before him, Harry was born at the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London. He came into the world two years following his brother, on September 15, 1984. And the younger son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana was always close to his late mother.

In fact, it was Harry’s mother who encouraged him to have some semblance of a normal life, despite growing up behind palace walls. “She had the most wonderful sense of humor and always wanted to make things fun for us, as well as protect us,” he told Newsweek in 2017. And his enthusiasm for helping others is something that Harry apparently inherited from Diana.
