William and Harry share never-before-seen vintage pics of Princess Diana.

Reflecting golden hues reminiscent of a different time, newly released vintage photos of Princess Diana have sparked feelings of nostalgia and bittersweet smiles across the globe.

The previously private pics, just shared by Princes William and Harry, show the unbreakable everlasting bond between a mother and her children.

The royal family shared the photos ahead of a new documentary honoring the princess, "Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy," which will air on ITV in the U.K. and HBO in the U.S. to acknowledge the 20-year mark of her passing.

The princess died tragically in a car accident in Paris on August 31, 1997.

“Our mother was a total kid, through and through," Harry reminisced in a heartfelt clip promoting the film.

"Everybody says to me, ‘so she was fun, give us an example,’" he continued. "All I can hear is her laugh in my head — that sort of crazy laugh, where there was just pure happiness shown on her face.”

“One of her mottos to me was, ‘You can be as naughty as you want — just don’t get caught,'" Harry said in the video. "She was one of the naughtiest parents."

More recently, William and Harry have opened up about how they coped after their mother's shocking, untimely death.

“I always thought to myself, 'what’s the point of bringing up the past?'” Harry had said in a video posted to the royal family's Facebook page in April. “It’s very easy to run away from it, to walk away from it, and avoid it the whole time," William sympathized, Princess Kate at his side.

As the pair have learned more recently, pushing those feelings down and not talking about them is far less helpful and healthy than talking about the past with loved ones or mental health professionals.

William and Harry, alongside Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, have made mental health a key issue in the royal family's public platform.

Heads Together, a stigma-busting campaign encouraging Brits to speak up and access help when it comes to their own mental well-being, was the official charity partner of the 2017 London Marathon.

For William, who has two small children, an important component in addressing his own mental health is sharing stories about his mother and keeping her legacy alive.

“I do regularly, putting George and Charlotte to bed, talk about [Diana] and try and remind them that there were two grandmothers in their lives," William explained.

Whether children are dealing with the immediate aftermath of a loved one's death or learning about ancestors and relatives who passed before they were born through family photos and stories, there are ways to help make that potentially difficult process a healthy and helpful one.

"It’s important that [George and Charlotte] know who she was and that she existed," William noted.

A new Gallup poll found a significant increase in the number of Americans who identify as LGBT since the last time it conducted a similar poll in 2017.

The poll found that 5.6% of U.S. adults identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. That's a large increase from the 2017 poll that had the number at 4.5%.

"More than half of LGBT adults (54.6%) identify as bisexual. About a quarter (24.5%) say they are gay, with 11.7% identifying as lesbian and 11.3% as transgender. An additional 3.3% volunteer another non-heterosexual preference or term to describe their sexual orientation, such as queer or same-gender-loving," the poll says.

After years of service as a military nurse in the naval Marine Corps, Los Angeles, California-resident Rhonda Jackson became one of the 37,000 retired veterans in the U.S. who are currently experiencing homelessness — roughly eight percent of the entire homeless population.

"I was living in a one-bedroom apartment with no heat for two years," Jackson said. "The Department of Veterans Affairs was doing everything they could to help but I was not in a good situation."

One day in 2019, Jackson felt a sudden sense of hope for a better living arrangement when she caught wind of the ongoing construction of Veteran's Village in Carson, California — a 51-unit affordable housing development with one, two and three-bedroom apartments and supportive services to residents through a partnership with U.S.VETS.

Her feelings of hope quickly blossomed into a vision for her future when she learned that Veteran's Village was taking applications for residents to move in later that year after construction was complete.

"I was entered into a lottery and I just said to myself, 'Okay, this is going to work out,'" Jackson said. "The next thing I knew, I had won the lottery — in more ways than one."

It's amazing to consider just how quickly the world has changed over the past 11 months. If you were to have told someone in February 2020 that the entire country would be on some form of lockdown, nearly everyone would be wearing a mask, and half a million people were going to die due to a virus, no one would have believed you.

Yet, here we are.

PPE masks were the last thing on Leah Holland of Georgetown, Kentucky's mind on March 4, 2020, when she got a tattoo inspired by the words of a close friend.
