Hosted by Oprah Winfrey and the Duke of Sussex, the five-part series revolved around mental health and features notable figures like Lady Gaga, actress Glenn Close, basketball star DeMar DeRozan and more.

In episode five, Harry revealed there is a photo of his late mother hanging up in Archie’s nursery. Not only that, but the duke also shared that one of his son’s first words was “grandma.” 

“I got a photo of her in his nursery, and it was one of the first words that he said—apart from ‘mama,’ ‘papa,’ it was then ‘grandma.’ Grandma Diana,” he said. “It's the sweetest thing, but at the same time, it makes me really sad because she should be here.”

Before his mother’s anniversary, Harry gave a public address following the Sentebale Polo Cup at the Aspen Valley Polo Club. The event was organized to help raise awareness and benefits for a cause the duke cares for deeply: the Sentebale charity.

During the speech, the royal took a moment to remember his mother and her legacy. “I want it to be a day filled with memories of her incredible work and love for the way she did it,” he said to the audience. “I want it to be a day to share the spirit of my mum with my family, with my children, who I wish could have met her.”
