Britain's Prince Harry wants to make a difference. The 32-year-old royal talked exclusively to a documentary team. In a candid interview, he spoke about his charity work and the effect the death of his mother had on him. Harry confessed that for a long time after, it was difficult to be a prince. His charity work helping orphans and war veterans has given him a new perspective on life and on how he can use his position to do good.

Harry said he did not always have such a positive outlook and used to "bury his head in the sand". He said: "I was fighting the system." Things have changed completely for him. He said: "Now I'm just so…energised to be lucky enough to be in a position to make a difference." He said it was, "fun to be good and boring to be bad". He added: "Whether it's in your local community, your village...walking down the street….Whatever it is, just do good."
