Prince Harry embraced his mom Princess Diana’s legacy by continuing one of her most controversial projects.

The Sun’s editor Dan Wootton appeared on ITV’s “Lorraine.” During his guesting, he spoke about Princess Diana’s controversial project involving landmines for which she was accused of overstepping the line and wading into politics.

In January 1997, footage of Princess Diana got the public talking about the plight of landmines. According to Wootton, Princess Diana was devastated with the accusations, but there were many who believed that she “overstepped the line into political campaigning.” Wootton defended the late royal and said that for her, it was not really about politics but about people.

Wootton continued saying that Princess Diana had a big spotlight to shine and she used it to bring attention to the people that others had forgotten.

“It’s very difficult to disagree with that, this is going to be a move that brings attention back to landmines in the world,” Wootton said.

The People Princess’ youngest son is reportedly willing to pick up where she left off by embracing her legacy. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expected to continue the advocacy despite the controversy surrounding it.

“I think it’s so lovely to see Prince Harry and Meghan really embracing her legacy,” Wootton said.

“Because it was a great legacy but it was one that was forgotten by the royal family for a long time because it almost felt too hot for them to handle, because of so much criticism.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will reportedly fly to Angola this autumn as part of their Africa tour and will work with a charity close to Princess Diana’s heart. In addition, they are expected to visit Malawi to help his charity Sentebale, which is dedicated to children affected by the HIV epidemic.

Princess Diana was also popular for the same advocacy. In fact, she broke the AIDS stigma by shaking the hand of a man with HIV without wearing gloves.

“This is all about wanting to fulfill his mother’s legacy and showing his wife and baby son the places that have had the most positive affect on him in his life,” an insider told The Mirror.
