Speaking to the Daily Star at the time, the Face Whisperer Adrianne Carter said: "Sadness on the close-up of Harry's face is clearly visible. It must be a terrible reminder of when he made this walk for his mother as a young boy."

Harry’s birthday has been sounded by heartbreak from a young age after his mother Princess Diana tragically died in a Paris car crash in 1997.

Her death came just weeks away from Harry’s thirteenth birthday.
