Watch Princess Diana Race Other Moms In New Video For Prince Harry's Sports Day!
In an old video that's resurfaced, Princess Diana can be seen running in a race for her son Prince Harry's school sports day. Watch her sprint to the finish line here!
Princess Diana broke away from royal decorum to show support for her youngest son, Prince Harry! In a video that's currently making the rounds online after it was posted on Twitter, Diana is shown partaking in an outdoor race at Harry's school, running with other moms while barefoot. However, the original tweet got some key information about the event wrong... here are the facts!
Diana took part in previous mothers' races for Harry's school
Princess Diana's old racing video was dated as being from 1989 in the original tweet, but as People reports, it seems that it's actually from 1991. That's because as old photos show, the event Diana is seen running in took place in June of that year during Wetherby School's annual sports day!
The tweet also mistakenly identifies the son Diana was there to support as William, not Harry. And according to the Huffington Post, it wasn't Diana's first time joining in on the race! She's said to have placed first in 1987 and 1988, while coming in second in 1989 and third in 1990.
People were quick to comment on the video online, including many who showed their admiration for the late royal. "Princess Diana had such a beautiful soul and heart," one Twitter user wrote.
