Prince Harry has reflected on the death of his mother, Princess Diana, as he writes a touching note to bereaved children.
The 36 year old has written the foreword for a new book being released to support children who have lost their frontline worker parents during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Duke of Sussex Harry lost his mum when he was just 12 years old when Diana tragically died in a car crash at the age of 36 in 1997.
Harry — who is currently expecting his second child with wife Meghan Markle — has emotionally revealed he still feels "a huge hole" over 20 years after the death of his mum.

He writes for the book Hospital By The Hill: "If you are reading this book, it's because you've lost your parent or a loved one, and while I wish I was able to hug you right now, I hope this story is able to provide you comfort in knowing that you're not alone.
"When I was a young boy I lost my mum. At the time I didn't want to believe it or accept it, and it left a huge hole inside of me.
"I know how you feel, and I want to assure you that over time that hole will be filled with so much love and support.
"We all cope with loss in a different way, but when a parent goes to heaven, I was told their spirit, their love and the memories of them do not. They are always with you and you can hold onto them forever. I find this to be true.
"Now, I never met them, but I know this person was special to you, and they were someone incredibly kind, caring and loving because of where they chose to work. Helping others is one of the most important jobs anyone can ever do."
He adds: "You may feel alone, you may feel sad, you may feel angry, you may feel bad. This feeling will pass.

"And I will make a promise to you – you will feel better and stronger once you are ready to talk about how it makes you feel.
"I hope this book helps remind you of just how special your parent or loved one was. And how special you are too."

A source close to Prince Harry is said to have insisted that whatever has been said and done, the Duke of Sussex intends to attend the unveiling of Princess Diana's statue in July alongside his brother.
It's been claimed by The Telegraph that Harry desperately hopes to attend the event and considers it a priority.
But, there reportedly is more uncertainty about if the Duke of Sussex can head to the UK for events taking place earlier in the year, such as Trooping the Colour and Prince Philip's 100th birthday in June, partly due to the birth of the couple’s second child, who the couple recently revealed is a baby girl.
