Transcript for Prince Harry Opens Up in Candid New Interview
and yesterday when we talked with prince harry about the invictus games which will be held, Disney world in may, many of you commented that his infectious spirit and passion for helping others reminded you of his mother princess Diana. Well, prince harry is hard working, he is devoted and serves his country with dignity all while raising awareness about the challenges of our heroes, what they face when they return home. When you look past the amp pew tees and past the burns they're still the same people and to be able to call them all my comrade, friend, whatever, because we all share something. We share that uniform. We share the training, we share in some cases Afghanistan. It's very special. I suppose it was never to be going to have to get to the stage where I was always going to be prince harry and despite the fact that I always wanted to be captain Wales treated the same in the same uniform as everybody else I think there was that acceptance, the power that the name has. Reporter: Like their mother prince harry and prince William have used that name to bring attention to their charitable work. Prince harry formed sentibali which means forget me not in honor of his mother to aid the vulnerable children of Lesotho. Many of whom are struggling with AIDS, earlier this year he visited the hospital where Diana famously destigmatized AIDS. He remains an integral part of the halo trust, her land mine charity. We all do everything we can to make sure she's never forgotten and carry on all of the special gifts as such that she had and portrayed while she was alive. I hope that a lot of my mother's talents are shown in a lot of the work that I do. Weirdly actually she wouldn't be my first time to Florida, to Disney world, I ended up going there with her. It's one of my very, very happy memories. I went on space mountain 14 times. That's the best thing ever. So, you know, there's all sorts of places over the world where we were very lucky to have those moments with our mother and very, very happy memories. This room. This is the home where you grew up. This used to be our mum's sitting room so she had a study through there with her desk and where she used to listen to all sort of her crazy music. It took a little bit of getting used to. Not that we ever forget. We think about her every day. The family that you and your brother, sister-in-law have built, what do you think how your mother would feel about this family. I hope she's looking down, you know, with tears in her eyes being incredibly proud of what we've, you know, I guess established I suppose. I guess she's waiting for me to have kids so see can be a grandmother again. I hope once again that everything we do privately and officially that it makes her proud. I think losing your mother at such a young age does end up shaping your life massively, of course, it does and now I find myself trying to be there and give advice to others in similar positions. And the other formed able woman in their live, the queen who will turn 90 in April. Because of my time in the service the utmost of respect, that I have not just for her as a grandmother, you know, she was my boss for ten years and I viewed her very much like that. Now it's really nice because I can go to her for advice and bend her ear with all the experiences she's had over the years. You're also uncle harry to two little ones running around. You got to have fun in life, imagine life without fun. You've got to be taken seriously but I hope I'm a fun uncle. And having them and the way you talk about children, is it something that you think about and in the near future. I can't wait for the day, so you know it will be fantastic. In addition to the passion that I see and others see that you have for the invictus games and for the wounded warriors it's also what we see when you're around children, around the world. Uh-huh. Who are going through some extremely challenging times and you gravitate toward them. I got a kid inside of me. I want to keep that. I adore kids. I enjoy everything that they bring to the party. They just say what they think. Everyone needs a hug every thousand and then and it so happens I've been told I'm good with giving hugs, fantastic. Bittersweet. The prince's role, you've got to shake hands. Hi. I choose hugging instead of shaking hands. We've watched you grow up with a lot of spirit. All right, ladies, prince harry is here. Don't act like you don't notice. Come on. Mrs. Obama, she's already talked a little smack about the game. I should also apologize to him in advance for all the gold medals that America will win in Orlando. About the competition. Fantastic. Are you guys going to bring it. We're going to bring it. We're definitely going to bring it. Basketball. And they definitely are going to bring it. There are 15 nations, 500 competitors and they want that kind of talk because they're taking this very seriously and Mrs. Obama and Dr. Jill Biden are very much involved with the invictus games and I can attest he is a good hugger. Just when I thought I couldn't love prince harry more. Yeah. You've managed to make fall in love again. I still think the queen is his boss. I think she is. Boss of ten years but it's the way he embraces life and others and he is a shining example. I was just going to say that. He's a very inspiring -- makes me want to be a little bit better. Very close to his father, everybody in his family so I really thank him for sharing that and the invictus games, Orlando, 2016 begins may 8th and air exclusively on ESPN. You can find out how to get tickets on our website, on Yahoo! And it will be great to bring kids there to see these wonderful competitors? We will be watching. Robin, it was terrific.
