Archie meets Grandma Dianas picture in rare home video included in Harry & Meghan

Harry and Meghan's Netflix documentary features a touching moment where their baby Archie leans forward to touch a picture of his grandma – Princess Diana.

In the rare home video, Meghan Markle, 41, can be seen holding Archie up in front of a photograph on the wall of the late former Princess of Wales.

In the clip, Archie can be heard babbling while looking at the photo of Diana as Meghan asks: "Who's that?"

Meghan then adds: "Hey grandma."

As Archie leans forwards to touch the picture of Diana, Meghan says: "Yeah. That's your Grandma Diana."

Princess Diana died aged 36 from injuries sustained in a car crash in Paris in August 1997. She had become an international icon thanks to her glamour and activism – but that also meant she faced intense public scrutiny. The car she was travelling in when she died was being pursued by paparazzi photographers when it crashed.

As the footage of Archie meeting the photo of Diana is shown during the Netflix show, Harry, 38, can be heard discussing his reasons for stepping back from royal life with Meghan in 2020.

He says: "I accept there will be people around the world who fundamentally disagree with what I've done and how I've done it, but I knew I had to do everything I could to protect my family."

Harry's voice begins to crack as he adds: "Especially after what happened to my mum. You know, I didn't want history to repeat itself."

Meghan and Harry announced they would be stepping down as senior working members of the family over two years ago and soon relocated to the US, leaving Royal life and the UK behind for good.

And Royal author Richard Fitzwilliams hasbranded the documentary a "destructive act of revenge".

He toldMailOnline: "This is a full frontal, extremely destructive attack on the Royal Family – the institution as well as individual households and members of those households. This series I suspect will greatly weaken the royals in the eyes of the world, especially among young people."

Speaking about Harry and brother William's tense relationship, Richard admitted that he believes the series will "widen the rift" between the pair.

He also added: "There is no doubt that this Netflix series is an amazing act of revenge designed to weaken the very institution that William will inherit as future King."

TheRoyal Family have been bracing themselvesfor the bombshells revealed in the documentary with reports claiming thePalace "will move swiftly" if Harry & Meghan makes direct attack on Kate.

Royal expert Michael Cole said: "What will trigger that is if there are direct attacks on his wife Catherine, the Princess of Wales, I think that might trigger it."

The show is being released in two parts with the second instalment being released on 15 December.
