Princess Diana did not have an easy time while giving birth to Prince Harry. In fact, the Duke of Sussex arrived one week earlier than expected.

According to People, the late Princess of Wales was so relaxed that she was able to read a paperback novel while Prince Charles slept on an armchair beside her bed. Princess Diana gave birth at St. Mary’s Hospital’s Lindo Wing.

Since things seemed pretty calm and easy while she was in labor, Princess Diana opted to not take any pain medication. She also received assistance from her royal gynecologist George Pinker.

But during the last three hours of nine-hour-long labor, Princess Diana had to suck on an ice cube to prevent dehydration. A nurse also rubbed her chapped lips with cream. Prince Charles, dressed in a green hospital gown and surgical mask, stayed at Princess Diana’s side throughout the delivery.

The minute the Prince and Princess of Wales stepped out of the hospital hours after Prince Harry’s birth, everything seemed well. Princess Diana’s hair was made up and she also had light make up on her face. She was also smiling from ear to ear while proudly showing Prince Harry to the entire world.

When asked what he thought of his second son, Prince Charles gave royal fans and the media the sweetest response.

“Absolutely marvelous. It didn’t matter whether it was a boy or a girl,” he said.

And when the crowd said that he and Princess Diana should have another one, Prince Charles jokingly replied that he and his wife could have their own polo team already.

The next day, Prince Charles accompanied Prince William to the hospital so that he could meet his younger brother. When Princess Diana heard her eldest son’s footsteps while running down the corridor, she called him and gave him the opportunity to touch his brother and hold his hand.

Princess Diana’s father, Earl Spencer, said that it would be lovely for Prince William to have a companion, a playmate, and someone to fight with.
