Britain’s Prince Harry has really changed — a diaper. The monarchy may often be in anarchy but it’s moments like this, seeing a bad boy turned war hero change an imaginary poo-poo, that unties the UK with the world in a shared snicker.

According to ABC, the prince experienced how to change a baby doll's diaper with one hand, while holding a weighted dumbbell in the other, during his visit at Headway in Nottingham, England. Headway is a charity organization that supports brain injury survivors. It was a charity his mother, the late Diana, Princess of Wales, often favored with her time.

As a mom who struggles to balance time between my own kids and volunteering to run a non-paying, non-profit children’s charity, I had a feel-good moment from this news story.

My boys have trailed me to chess events and volunteer sessions on evenings, after school, and weekends for the past four years. I would be very proud if, after I died, even one of my four sons were to pick up that torch, even if only to shine for a few hours. Of course, I’d also hope they didn’t show such a face of utter discomfort to the cameras of the world, but then there’s not any poo or bare bottoms involved in playing chess — at least not the way we play it.

However, the prince gave the paparazzi a field day with his visible chagrin when coming face to bottom with a baby doll.
