While visiting a London hospital Monday, Prince Harry and a 26-year-old patient shared their memories of Princess Diana, which, retold now, will still make you feel a surge of feelings.

The woman, who was born HIV-positive, recalled meeting Princess Diana 24 years ago. "Your mother's lap was so comfortable and I cuddled into her," she said to Prince Harry, who replied "I remember that too."
