Prince Harry, 34, smiled as he was shown photos of his mother’s trip to Sheffield Children’s Hospital and signed the same Visitors Book she wrote in 30 years ago.
The royal, who became a father to baby Archie in May, officially opened the hospital’s new wing and met with patients and their families.
Harry spoke with Julie Austin, a nurse who worked at the hospital for 34 years and had a chance to meet Diana during her visit.

“I had a patient that I looked after and had chosen to be in the line to meet her. She was late going round, because she stopped to talk to everybody. She was wonderful,” Austin recalled of Princess Diana, PEOPLE reports.
And one little boy couldn’t resist tugging on the prince’s beard.
Noah Nicholson, who turns two next week, grabbed the royal whiskers as Harry chatted with his mother at his bedside.
Little Noah seems rather fascinated by Prince Harry’s beard! The Duke of Sussex is meeting patients & staff at The Children’s Hospital in #Sheffield, as part of a Royal visit to the City. More @BBCLookNorth later today😊 pic.twitter.com/kb5JOwq11F— Phil Bodmer (@philbodmer) July 25, 2019
The duke laughed and said to the toddler: "Have you never seen a beard before?"
Noah's mother, Tracy Nicholson, 36, from Grimsby, said he had been in hospital for most of his life after he was born at 27 weeks and has had multiple problems with his intestines.
Harry also visited Sheffield Hallam University where he met academics and students demonstrating a Virtual Reality rehabilitation project, which uses technology to make it easier for amputees to train themselves to use prosthetic limbs.
The Invictus UK Trials were his last stop where he met competitors in wheelchair basketball, powerlifting and swimming.
