Prince Harry shows same compassion as Diana

Prince Harry WellChild

Prince Harry has again illustrated how he connects with ordinary people, showing compassion to those who are suffering or in need of help.

Just like his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, Harry has a natural ability to reach out and put people at ease.

And during the second day of his two-day trip to Yorkshire, he won over the hearts and minds of health workers, children in need and their families.

The prince was visiting the Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust and nursing staff for WellChild, the national charity that provides critical support for seriously ill children and their families.

He also visited the home of one of the families to see how lives are being improved.

In the photograph above, Harry is meeting WellChild nurse Helen, who helped the mother and father of young Lewis to care for him following his tracheostomy, which meant he was able to be discharged from hospital and go home.

As well as the hospital visit, Harry made the trip to the home of five-year-old Oliver Rooney, whose family is being supported by WellChild’s Helping Hands initiative, which is aimed at improving the house and garden to make it safe and suit their needs.
