Afterwards Harry spoke to Owen who told the Sunday Mirror, "He gave me some advice. He said I must talk about what happened. He said he knew personally because when he lost his mum, he didn't."

Owen added, ""It was a bit weird when he said, ‘when my mum was killed’, because she’s not just any mum – she’s Princess Diana.

"It seemed like he was trying to give some advice rather than have a meaningless conversation.”
