Prince Harry. Harry was speaking to NBC's Today programme - as part of his promotion of the Invictus Games, the sports event he set up for injured servicemen. And in an exclusive interview, he told the host Hoda Kotb about meeting the Queen for a private visit earlier this month, and how he now finds America home.

But he also told Kotb about how Diana has helped him in particular over the past two years. When asked if he told his son, Archie, about his grandmother, Harry replied: 'Yes, very much. I don't tell him all the stuff that happened, but certainly that this is grandma Diana and we have a couple of pictures up in the house.'

When asked if he ever felt his mum's presence, he said: 'It's constant, it has been over the last two years, more so than ever before. It's almost as though she's my with my brother [Prince William] and now she's very much like helping me, now she's got him set up. Now she's helping me set up. That's what it feels like. He's got his kids. I've got my kids. The circumstances are obviously different but I feel her presence in almost everything, definitely more so in the last two years.' (The Duke andDuchess of Cambridgehave three children: George, 8, Charlotte, 6, and Louis, 3.)

Speaking about his recent visit with the Queen on April 14, Harry said it was nice to see her with some 'privacy'. 'She's always grateful [to see me], she always got a great sense of humour with me and I'm making sure that she's protected and the right people around her,' he added.

Obviously, Harry now spends almost all of his time in America - living in California with his wife Meghan and their two children Archie, 2, and Lilibet, 10 months - and he told the host that he now thought of the US as home, and that he didn't feel odd saying that.

However, there was an awkward part of the interview, where Harry tried to deflect a question about whether he misses his brother, Prince William, and his dad. Instead of answering, Harry told the host that he'd rather focus on the people participating in the Invictus Games.
