Princess Diana had the sweetest nickname for Prince Harry, and we're in floods

How cute?

In the Channel 5 programme William & Harry: Princes At War? Royal correspondent, Robert Jobson, shed some light on what Diana's relationship with Prince Harry was like.


It also gave an insight in to the late Princess's ideas about the line of succession.

Mr Jobson said that Diana thought Harry would make a better king than Prince William, and she even had a special nickname for him as a result of it.

Mr Jobson said:

"She used to refer to Harry as GKH (Good King Harry) because she thought he’d probably be better equipped for the role in the future than William."


What a cute little nickname?

Before her death, she was asked if the title of king should go directly to William during a Panorama interview, Diana said:

"Well, then you have to see that William’s very young at the moment, so do you want a burden like that to be put on his shoulders at such an age? So I can’t answer that question."


In the same interview, Diana was asked if she believed Charles would ever be king.

She replied:

"There was always conflict on that subject with him when we discussed it, and I understood that conflict, because it’s a very demanding role, being Prince of Wales, but it’s an equally more demanding role being king."

"And being Prince of Wales produces more freedom now, and being king would be a little bit more suffocating."


"And because I know the character I would think that the top job, as I call it, would bring enormous limitations to him, and I don’t know whether he could adapt to that."
