The Sun reported that Harry wanted to create a library for his brother’s three children as a tribute to his mother Princess Diana.

Prince Harry, 33, paid around £8,000 or $10,677 for a first edition Winnie-The-Pooh for his nephew, Louis’s christening on Monday. A friend shared, “One of Harry’s happiest childhood memories was being read a bedtime story by his mother.”

According to the friend, Diana loved all the old classics which gave Harry the idea of starting a little library of first editions for Louis and his siblings Charlotte and George to enjoy as they get older.

It was on sale for £24,000 or $32,033 but he decided Winnie-The-Pooh would be more suitable for the little one. Robinson Crusoe was William’s favorite book, but Harry loved all of A.A. Milne’s stories.

It’s said that Harry bought the 1926 Milne book, which only had 30,000 copies printed in the first run, from Peter Harrington in London. Little Louis was born in April and will be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.

He’ll wear the same gown worn by his older siblings. The gown is a replica of the dress made for Queen Victoria’s eldest daughter in 1841.

George, 4, and Charlotte, 3, will be in attendance for their little brother’s big day. This will mark the first time that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children will be seen and photographed together as a family of five.

On hand, will also be Louis' 6 godparents which are made up of close friends and family.
