Diana’s work seemingly paid off too. As William and Harry grew into adulthood, it became clear that they were making charitable efforts a priority in their lives. And one of Harry’s endeavors has been in the fight against HIV and AIDS – a cause that his mother supported while she was alive. In 2006 Harry, together with Lesotho’s Prince Seeiso, co-founded Sentebale – a charity for children with HIV.
Furthermore, both of Diana’s sons have used their weddings to raise money for charity. When Prince William married Kate Middleton in 2011, for example, he requested that well-wishers donate money to chosen charities instead of buying wedding gifts for the couple.
In fact, William and Kate suggested a diverse range of charities for the event. Among them were organizations that use sport and activities to educate children, such as PeacePlayers International and Dance United. Others were environmental charities, including The Zoological Society of London and Earthwatch. And various projects that help people facing grief were also accommodated.
