The princess reportedly said, “Harry is full of energy, but he jumps from one thing to another and then loses interest.” ”
Ms Seward added in her comments to the Daily Mail last year: “Diana told me that William was very sensitive, and Harry was the artistic and lively one who could come up with anything.

“William was more academic than Harry but he didn’t find Eton very easy at the time, even though there were some lovely friends.
“She said Harry would go to Eton or else he would be chosen as the one who wasn’t so bright and she worried about his lack of focus.”
Harry was only 12 when Diana passed away and unfortunately she never saw him start at Eton College.
However, she was probably right in that William was the most academic, evidenced by the fact that he went to college and Harry didn’t.

As a mother, Diana clearly knew Harry very well and her words about him “swinging” from one thing to another are particularly poignant, given the turbulence of the last year of his life.
While some things in Harry’s life have continued, such as his dedication to the military, which spanned over a decade, in other situations he seems to be rushing things.
For example, he dated Chelsy Davy for about six years before finally breaking things off, but dated Meghan for a little over a year before proposing.
At the time, many called it a “whirlwind romance” and Prince William even advised her to slow things down, according to a new bio titled “Finding Freedom.”

Authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand wrote that William told his brother, “Take the time you need to get to know this girl.”
Sadly, Harry would have been offended by the expression “that girl”, triggering an ongoing problem between the brothers.
Asked about their quick romance during their engagement interview, Meghan said: ‘I don’t know if I would call this a whirlwind in relationship terms, obviously there have been layers attached to how this is. became public.
“After spending almost five or six months of intimacy, which was amazing, but no I think we really got to have so much time just to connect and we never went more than two weeks without seeing each other, although we were obviously having a long-distance relationship.
Harry and Meghan also arguably rushed their decision to step down from the royal family.
After their royal tour of Africa in October, they went to Canada to take time off and during that time they planned their outing.
This means they only spent a few weeks before making the decision to leave before announcing it to the world on January 8.
At the time, the plan had not been fully worked out between the couple and Prince Charles, and the Queen asked them not to make it public until the plans were finalized.
However, the Duke and Duchess defied this and announced their decision to the world, triggering the so-called Sandringham summit, in which the Royal Family charted the way forward.
However, Diana also predicted that Harry was able to “cope with anything,” which will be vital for him in terms of settling into his new life.
Indeed, Harry has faced a lot of things in his life: the death of his mother, intense press and public scrutiny, social media abuse, fallout with his brother and, in some ways, the rest of his family, and a huge life change. saying goodbye to all he knew and taking a leap of faith in his new life with Meghan, away from the royal family.
However, that doesn’t mean things don’t affect him.
In the ITV documentary “Harry and Meghan: An African Journey” Harry told Tom Bradby that the stories he saw about him and Meghan “hurt” and that it was “constant management” to keep his mental health under control.
That way, there are many layers to Diana’s prediction for Harry’s future, each showing just how much she really understood him, even though she unfortunately never saw him grow into adulthood.
