Prince Harry gives touching advice to 6-year-old boy who lost his mother
In a heartwarming moment, Prince Harry took a minute to give a young boy who lost his mother some great advice.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex kicked off their New Zealand tour just after announcing that they're expecting their first child. The tour has had many tear-jerking, memorable moments.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle participated in a walk along at the Auckland Viaduct Harbor on their last day in New Zealand. During the walk along, Prince Harry surprised onlookers when he stopped to talk to six-year-old Otia Nante.
The prince spoke briefly with Otia's granny who informed him that Otia had lost his mother while he was a baby. Prince Harry, who had also lost his mum at a young age, instantly connected with the young boy.
Otia handed the prince a letter. Then Prince Harry decided to give the boy some reassuring advice.

LOSS OF HIS OWN MOTHER:
Harry had lost his own mother, Princess Diana when he was twelve years old. Both of Princess Diana's sons only recently opened up about their mother and how much they miss her.
He has said that he underwent therapy to deal with his mother's death and that she has left a void in his life. On his wedding day, Prince Harry ensured there were several touches dedicated to his mother including her favorite flowers from the palace garden being included in the flower arrangements.
He revealed that he regrets not speaking about the impact of losing his mother earlier. "All I want to do is try and fill the holes my mother has left," Harry expressed.
He went on to say that his brother and him aim to make a difference in the lives of everyone around them just like his mother had done.
