Legacies are not just providing the money, status, or other good stuff, but also impose a burden or certain standards that are expected to be maintained. And children often fail to do so.
It is commonly found that great actor’s children might not be as good as their parents or a sportsmen’s child not able to excel as his father did even though a golden spoon is provided to them. Parents might provide money or properties to their children, but their good deeds or charitable activities might not be carried by their offsprings in most of the cases.
However, Prince Harry certainly disagrees with the general paradox and is proudly continuing the philanthropic activities that his mother performed at her time. Sadly, she died years ago, but her son is making sure that her ambitions are dying with her.

Following in the footsteps of his mother, Princess Diana, this morning The Duke of Sussex visited a de-mining site in Dirico, Angola, to raise awareness of the danger and prevalence of landmines that still exists today. The Duke joined @thehalotrust in their work to help clear the area to enable safe access for the local community. • “If an international ban on mines can be secured it means, looking far ahead, that the world may be a safer place for this generation's grandchildren.” – Princess Diana, 1997 Today in Angola The Duke of Sussex will retrace his mother’s steps to see the legacy of her work and how her connection with this community helped make the elimination of landmines a reality. In 1997 Diana Princess of Wales visited Huambo to bring global attention to the crisis of landmines and the people whose lives were being destroyed. Two decades later, the area has transformed from desolate and unhabitable to lively and vibrant, with colleges, schools and small businesses. The Duke is humbled to be visiting a place and a community that was so special to his mother, and to recognise her tireless mission as an advocate for all those she felt needed her voice the most, even if the issue was not universally popular. Princess Diana’s visit helped change the course of history, and directly led to the Convention against Anti-Personal Landmines, also known as the Ottawa Treaty. Today, with the support of @thehalotrust, Angola now has a stated aim under the Treaty to be clear of known mines by 2025. Despite great progress, 60 million people worldwide still live in fear of landmines every day. During his visit today, The Duke will walk along the street which was once the minefield where his mother was famously pictured. #RoyalVisitAfrica #RoyalVisitAngola Photo©️PA
On the 27th of this month, Prince Harry had made a visit to Angola. And has paid tribute to one of her late mother’s altruistic work. Harry had put on similar attire and walked into the area and helped in setting off a controlled explosion. That place was once an artillery base for anti-government forces.
He remembered his mother and said, “It has even an honour to retrace my mother’s steps today. I lost her 22years ago, but the memory of her is with me daily, and her legacy lives on.’ He also said baby Archie’s presence in the event made him remember his childhood.
Princess Diana was one of the kindest and generous persons. She has taken several issues on her shoulders and fought for it. She significantly worked for HIV/AIDS victims, Cancer Patients, etc.
