Why Everyone Is Talking About Princess Diana’s Unseen Letters About Prince Harry

This is probably the most adorable thing you'll see all day...

Prince Harry has always been the cheekier, more relatable, member of the Royal Family.

Now previously unseen candid letters, written by Princess Diana, have surfaced. And they reveal that the young prince was ‘constantly in trouble at school’.

The correspondence – handwritten on headed Kensington Palace paper – was sent to ex-Buckingham Palace steward Cyril Dickman, and is due to be sold as part of his estate.

The adorable pieces of history, published on BBC News, also include notes about a young Prince William, stating that he ‘swamped’ his new baby brother, Harry, with ‘an endless supply of hugs and kisses’.

In one letter, dated March 2, 1985, Diana wrote: ‘William adores his little brother and spends the entire time swamping Harry with an endless supply of hugs and kisses, hardly letting the parents near!’

Harry would have only been a few months old.


‘The reaction to one tiny person’s birth has totally overwhelmed us and I can hardly breathe for the mass of flowers that are arriving here!’, the princess added.

A later letter, from October¬†1992, gave an update on her sons’ progress. Diana explains how both young princes ‘are well and enjoying boarding school a lot, although Harry is constantly in trouble!’

Mr Dickman, whose family are selling the letters, was head palace steward for more than 50 years.

The sentimental lots also include Christmas cards from different members of the Royal Family, letters from the Queen and unopened boxed wedding cake from Queen Elizabeth’s marriage to Prince Philip in 1947.
