London, Dec 19 (ANI): Prince Harry has spoken about the influence his late mother Diana, Princess of Wales, and father, the Prince of Wales, have had on his charity work.

His comments came ahead of a visit to Berlin where he was expected to be honoured for his humanitarian and charity work with an award presented live on television.

He was to receive a Golden Heart during Ein Herz fur Kinder (A Heart for Children), Germany's largest televised fundraising gala.

In the interview with the German newspaper Bild, Prince Harry described how he hopes to emulate the "fantastic" charitable work of his parents.

"My mother was an inspiration to me, and my brother. And also to so many people around the world," the Scotsman quoted him as saying.

"She did so much fantastic work with her charities and I think people particularly warmed to her because of the way she was able to put them at ease, no matter what environment or situation they were in.

"Her compassion was obvious to see. Like her, I realise I am in a privileged position as a member of the Royal Family, and I have to use what I have been given to highlight important issues.

"But I have also learnt an awful lot from my father, who has worked with loads of charities for decades," he added. (ANI)
