But what's especially notable about Prince Harry's childhood photos is that he always seems to be matching his older bother, Prince William. Apparently, Prince Harry's late mother, Princess Diana, was responsible for the excessive matching. "I genuinely think she [Princess Diana] got satisfaction out of dressing myself and William up in the most bizarre outfits – normally matching, Prince Harry said about his mom's sweet habit, according to Hello Magazine. "It was weird shorts and little shiny shoes with the old clip on. Looking back at the photos it just makes me laugh and I think, 'How could you do that to us?'"
He's The Jokester Of The Family

Of course, Prince Harry's lighthearted nature did land him in hot water from time to time — especially when he was a young kid.

Of course, being Prince Harry is not all fun and games. In fact, Prince Harry served in the British Army for ten years, according to the Royal Family's website. And telling by the photos taken of Prince Harry during this time, he took his role very seriously.
