Queen Elizabeth II — in biographer Andrew Morton’s book “William And Catherine” — frowned upon the way the late Princess Diana had chosen to raise princes William and Harry. As written in the book, Diana had chosen to take a more hands-on approach with the rearing of the two children, which was in contrast to the royal upbringing of having nannies take care of the kids.

“I don’t understand why Diana has to do this,” the Queen exclaimed. “There are millions of housemaids around,” she added.

Despite it being frowned upon by Prince Charles, Diana continued to guide her children into having a more “normal” life — much to the dismay of what was expected of the royal family. Until her passing, her children had become quite attached to her and her lifestyle.

Diana had made her wish for her children to live normal lives very clear to everyone. Her commitment and dedication toward reaching this goal rubbed off on her family, leaving an even heavier impression on her son, Prince Harry.

Prince Harry Inspired By His Mother’s Parenting Style

In an article published by Entertainment Tonight (ET) in 2018, Prince Harry expressed his desire to follow in his mother’s footsteps in terms of child rearing. The prince, as told by a source, wished for his children to have an upbringing close to what was given to him by his mother.

It is with these actions that he hopes to impart the humanitarian values that he and his wife, Meghan Markle, hold dear. “They will have a healthy respect for boundaries like other children,” the source told ET. “They will have chores at home and be brought up with respect.”

His parents intend to raise Master Archie, who was only born on May 6, as any non-royal would — with their own hands and by their own means, teaching him how to solve things with his own power. It was reported that Master Archie might also have to work jobs when he grows up — as non-royalty does — in order for him to have a solid grasp of the real world.
