Prince Harry posted the photo of his mother, Princess Diana, meeting with then-President Nelson Mandela in Cape Town in March, 1997. This is a screen capture from Harry's Facebook page.

Prince Harry posted a photo on his Facebook page Thursday that celebrates Nelson Mandela's 95th birthday — and indirectly reminds followers of the impending birth of the royal baby in London.

The photo shows Harry’s mother, Princess Diana, with then-President Mandela in March 1997. Diana met with Mandela in Cape Town, South Africa, only two months before her untimely death to discuss the growing threat of AIDS.

The photo serves as a reminder that Diana would be about to become a grandmother. Diana gave birth to Harry's older brother, Prince William, 31 years ago in London's St. Mary's Hospital — the same hospital where William's wife, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, is expected to have her child any day now. Harry, 28, also was born at St. Mary's.
