Prince Harry has taken Meghan Markle to visit his beloved mother's final resting place at her childhood home in Northants, England.

Princess Diana passed away on August 31, 1987 following a car accident in Paris, France. She was only 36 years old.

As expected, Prince Harry and his brother, Prince William, took their mother's death particularly hard. Before her death, a young Harry had skipped a phone call with his mother in favor of playing outside, something he regrets to this day.

"And I had to live with that for the rest of my life, knowing that I was that 12-year-old boy wanting to get off the phone and wanting to go and run around and play games rather than speak to my mum," Harry told the BBC.

William cited his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, as being a rock for himself and Harry during the difficult time, despite facing public backlash for staying at Balmoral with her grandsons.

"I think it was a very hard decision for my grandmother to make. She felt very torn between being a grandmother to William and Harry and her Queen role," William said in the same interview.

According to the Daily Star, the prince and Markle went to Althorp estate this past November, so he could "speak" to Diana and get her blessing to propose to his now bride-to-be.

Back in November, Harry and Markle went to visit his mother's grave for a very emotional meeting. Althorp estate, which is the home of Diana's brother, Charles, the 9th Earl Spencer, features 36 oak trees – specifically panted to commemorate each year of Diana’s life.

Spencer said that while her grave is open to the public, it's a place for the two brothers to grieve peacefully.

"I never go to Diana with them. It’s very much their time there,” Spencer told PEOPLE. "But I think I think it’s very important for them to be there with her. It is, luckily, very tranquil here and they can come and go as they wish whenever they want. And that’s very lovely for me to know that."

The happy couple plan on visiting Diana's grave once more before they tie the knot on May 19.

"Harry has already taken Meghan to Althorp to see his mum, but they will go back before the big day," a source to the royal said. "Harry wanted to take Meghan to see and speak to her (Diana)… it was very personal for Harry."

"I think he quietly asked his mum for her blessing to marry Meghan, too," the source added.
