Rare photos of Prince Harry’s boarding school room reveal sweet tribute to mother Diana
Rarely seen photos of Prince Harry’s old school bedroom at Eton have emerged, revealing the close bond between the Duke of Sussex and his late mother Princess Diana.
Just before Prince Harry left Eton in 2003, photographers were invited to snap pictures of the Duke of Sussex’s day-to-day school life. The rarely seen photographs show Prince Harry posing at his desk, polishing his shoe, painting on a canvas and making a slice of toast in his house kitchen.
His room was pretty much like that of most students, with photos of women in bikinis on the wall and a few dirty mugs scattered around. But he also tried to make sure the bedroom had bits of his mother in it.
The young Prince had a black and white framed photo of his departed mother Princess Diana given pride of place on his desk. Pictures of his father, Prince Charles, his Grandma, Queen Elizabeth and his brother, Prince William, also made an appearance around his Eton room but in a more discrete way.
Harry revealed in a 2015 interview that he “didn’t enjoy” Eton and that he actually “wanted to be the bad boy”. He was one of the least academic members of the Royal Family and his result showed it. His A Level results included a B in Art and D in Geography.
