Prince Harry inspired by Diana

Britain's Prince Harry has been inspired by his late mother Princess Diana.

The 31-year-old royal is heavily involved with a number of good causes, including the charity Walking With The Wounded, which helps injured ex-servicemen and women and although his name brings a spotlight to the causes, he also tries to do a lot of good work behind the scenes.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It's equally important, if not more so, to do the stuff behind the scenes.

"It's something that our mother did a lot of and that's the time that you really get to learn, you get the experiences and you actually get the honest truth out of people."

The prince - who retired from the British Army in June, ending a 10-year military career - said he will do whatever he can to support his injured former colleagues.

He explained: "At the end of the day whatever support I can give a good cause like this means a lot to me.

"With these guys and Walking With The Wounded, I've got a lot of history with them.

"For me it's just really important to be able to stay connected with them, especially now that I've left the forces.

"For a lot of these guys as soon as they leave, one of the biggest things they miss is that camaraderie, that team work, that being appreciated as part of a team."
