    Hoping Tyler’s vocal problem is minor and due to something like a cold as opposed to something with his vocal chords that will require more surgery and medications.

    Not a worshipper of “glam” Princess Di but I really respect her bravery and commitment in the field of charity work and breaking down barriers between her and the people in the countries she visited. At a time when even average people were afraid of touching HIV positive children, she warmly held them in her hands. She was a school teacher before marrying into the house of Windsor and in my experience, elementary school teachers legitimately care about other people’s children and care to serve their community.

    • Jaded says:

      She was actually a nanny and nursery school assistant, not a teacher, but her love of children was very evident.

      My mom worked in a hospital in the 80s, and there were many nurses she worked with that would neglect AIDS patients because of fear. Princess Di holding children with HIV/AIDS close to her was a really big moment and very important.

  3. Bc says:

    I’m proud of him and I’m not even his mum.

  4. M. says:

    You can tell that Harry was very emotional. I think sometimes people forget that he is an actual human being with feelings instead of this caricature that the media portrays him as. He seems much more happy and at peace when he’s outside of the UK.

  5. Meadow says:

    Steven Tyler is another one of those old pedo rockstars. There are too many of those.

  6. Ally says:

    I remember British journalists (even Ian Hislop!) sputtering at the time about Diana meddling in foreign affairs by engaging in this event. As though children and other civilians being blown up for years even after conflict has ended is a legitimate position anyone should be defending.

  7. DS9 says:

    Harry is really not here to play anymore.

    Good for him

    • sue denim says:

      I like the way you put that, good point. Seems he’s finding his way to do good on his own terms, and recognizing those who would hold him back or undermine him for who they are, similar to his Mom actually. I remember how much flak she got for doing this incredibly important and brave work.

    Wish you guys would cover the Hollywood customer designer that went on a rant on video about how she would love to “kill all n-words”.

    I found Prince Harry’s visit very touching and powerful. They had pictures of him walking down a street, that was the field where Diana had been photographed. The area has been able to be developed and utilized in a good way in the 22 years since she was there, so that shows there has been progress, but they paired that with showing there are still minefields and landmines so the work isn’t done. It was a very well-done visit, and I’m sure it was emotional for him.

    Sometimes I think the constant throwbacks to Diana are overkill (i.e. Will and Kate’s picture at the Taj Mahal), but this is a situation where it was appropriate and really got the point across, IMO.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      It was touching and he is very much his mother’s son. He has always cared about his causes and it shows.

      The Taj visit by the Cambridges was awkward, neither looked comfortable.

  10. JanetFerber says:

    When I last said on this site that Prince Harry was trying to save the world, other commentators laughed. I re-iterate it now. He IS trying to save the world, damn it.

  11. Spicecake38 says:

    Just realized that Diana would have been 35 years old on that walk,same age as Harry is now.She had just left an unhappy marriage(divorce was final) and Harry just got into a happy marriage.Full circle.

  12. Clay says:

    the guy is a new dad and a royal…you truly believe the minefield wasn’t completely and totally cleared and safe? please. Those photos with the exact same setting and the exact same shield and mask as his mom were a perfectly calculated PR op though, so congrats to his PR team upping the damage control PR game

    • blue36 says:

      Damage control? He’s been working with the Halo Trust long before this.

      • Krista says:

        Didn’t he walk through the minefield a few years back as well? Feels like I remember him doing this already (or was it a different location?). So wouldn’t this mean this is a continuation of a project with an organization he’s been working closely with for awhile now? (Side note: which brings the question why is the press making it seem like this is his first time visiting the site?)

      • blue36 says:

        @Krista, I have seen pictures (pre-Meghan) of a visit he did for the Halo Trust, I’m unsure of the specifics of that engagement, but yes this is a continuation of his engagement with this organization – I think a lot of people who haven’t followed Harry before Meghan think this is the first time he’s doing this and the media is taking advantage of that and framing it as a first time visit to the site to give credibility to their “damage control/positive PR publicity tour” narrative.

  13. Sass says:

    Hey so totally off topic but the “Royals” archive tab doesn’t have anything past the Edo/Bea engagement announcement but clearly there are Royal updates. Anyone else having trouble with this, like maybe they’re no longer categorizing them under that, or is it a tech glitch, or is it just my dumb computer?

  14. Some chick says:

    (Not counting internet comments!!!)

  15. JRenee says:

    Give me a break. He did something many still wouldn’t do and he’s still criticized. The message went over far too many nasty heads! There are still mine fields that need to be deactivated!

  16. Lene Malan says:

    I will give Harry a break here, emotional but I think also very proud of what his mom achieved re landmines.

  17. Dbee says:

    I find him so damn sexy

  18. J ferber says:

    We’ll, Linda, I’d like to include you as a person trying to save the world. And that’s no laughing matter. Doing good is trying to save the world. Good on you, and i sincerely mean that.

  19. Ann says:

    Why heven’t they cleaned up the mine field in twenty-five years?

  20. Tchotchke says:

    I’m going to be the worst here, but don’t you mean “replicate” rather than “duplicate?”
