A touching video of Prince Harry from 2017 has reemerged, with some Royal Family enthusiasts suggesting it demonstrates that the Duke of Sussex shares similarities with his late mother, Princess Diana.

A "heartwarming" video of Prince Harry has resurfaced from seven years ago, and Royal Family fans reckon it shows just how much the Duke of Sussex is like his mother, Princess Diana.

The video, circulating on X (formerly Twitter), captures Harry at the Invictus Games in 2017, an event he founded for injured and sick servicemen and women. This particular edition was held in Toronto, Canada.

In the footage, Harry is observed spectating the event from the sidelines, enjoying a bowl of popcorn. Initially unaware, he soon realizes that the young girl seated next to him is sneakily helping herself to his snacks.

The Duke of Sussex then becomes aware of what's happening and playfully pulls the popcorn away from the girl before generously offering her some. In a lighthearted exchange, he continues to tease her by pulling the popcorn away before ultimately giving it back, all while sharing laughs with the woman accompanying the young girl.

The Royal Family's official YouTube channel shared the clip the day after the incident. In the video description, the girl is identified as two-year-old Emily Henson, the daughter of Harry's close friend, British paralympian Dave Henson.

Reacting to the clip on X, one Royal Family fan made a comparison with Diana. They said: "Prince Harry is more like his mother Diana, while his brother is more like Charles." A second said: "He would make his mom very proud."

Another wrote: "Watching Prince Harry share his popcorn with that little girl at the Invictus Games was such a heartwarming moment! It goes to show that kindness and generosity know no bounds, even when it comes to sharing snacks.

"It's the small, unexpected gestures like these that can brighten someone's day and create unforgettable memories. Lets all take a page out of Prince Harry's book and spread a little more joy in the world, one popcorn kernel at a time!"

A fourth said: "The nice thing about this is that it actually seems organic and genuine. It doesn’t look like something they staged for publicity."

Interestingly, the opening of the Invictus Games in 2017 also marked Harry's first public appearance with then-girlfriend Meghan Markle. Perhaps aware of this, another commenter said: "My man was so happy before marriage."
