Today marks the 15th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana and with her youngest son's recent sex scandal her biographer, Andrew Morton has given his opinion of what the beloved mother would have thought of Prince Harry's behaviour.
Speaking to The Sun, Morton who wrote a tell-all book about Diana's private life and difficult marriage to the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles claims that she would have defended her son's antics but be concerned with where his partying was taking him.

He said: “She would have defended him like a lioness with her cub — after all, she was photographed topless on a Spanish holiday — but would have worried he is drinking far too much.”
“For Harry, booze equals trouble, just as it did for Diana’s elder sister Sarah when she was younger. She may have wondered if it is time for him to step away from the cocktail bar, if not the cocktail waitresses.”
Harry spoke poignantly about the loss of his mother at a service held to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of her death in 2007.

The Prince, who was 12 when Diana died, said: “When she was alive we completely took for granted her unrivalled love of life, laughter, fun and folly.
“We both think of her every day. We speak about her and laugh together at all the memories.”
It seems that with the loss of his mother it is sister-in-law Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge that Prince Harry is turning to. The 30 year-old has promised to help get him “back on track” following the scandal and help with his public image.
An insider told LOOK magazine: "Kate pointed out that Harry had already been put through the ringer and deserved their sympathy. She's promised to support him as much as possible and offered to help him come up with a recovery plan to get his public image back on track.”
