Now we all now Prince Harry and Prince William love to do a good deed - good boys they are. And it appears they're keeping the legacy of their late-mother going.

While embarking on a 17-mile trek for Walking With The Wounded‘s Walk of Britain, Prince Harry spoke about his inspiration for his charity work and how it's helped gain a lot more learning experiences along the way.

The 31-year-old confessed it was all the work his late-mother Princess Diana did for charity, which encouraged him to also help others.

"It’s something that our mother did a lot of and that’s the time that you really get to learn, you get the experiences and you actually get the honest truth out of people," Harry told The Mirror.


And Hazza, who left the army earlier this year, spoke of how he plans to give back.

"I thought, 'Hang on, I’ve spent 10 years in the Army doing something that I really love, being hidden away from the limelight. Time to give back,'" he told the newspaper.

"And actually suddenly realised I can now be the perfect spokesperson for these guys. I know what they’ve been through."

The royal is also bringing his Invictus Games for wounded warriors to Orlando in May.

During his walk, Hazza told *People: *"The support has been amazing. People come out to give money, and then when they hear what it’s for they put another £20 in."

And his brother Prince William also has the same giving spirit - Earlier this month, the 33-year-old tackled bullying in schools for a charity in his late mother’s name.

And only today did Wills attend Welsh Rugby Union to help them fund Coach Core provide appenticeships across Welsh regions.

Princess Diana was extremely well known for the charity work she did in and out of the limelight. She was the patron of over 100 charities and worked on behalf of the homeless and disabled.
