Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex is taking his duties seriously, and which is why he gifted his nephew, Prince Louis an expensive gift.

According to The Sun, Prince Harry shelled out £8,000 ($10,598.40) to purchase a first-edition copy of “Winnie-the-Pooh” by A.A. Milne.

A friend of Harry's told the paper that his late mother, Princess Diana, would read to the prince when he was young.

“One of Harry’s happiest childhood memories was being read a bedtime story by his mother,” the source said.

Harry is also planning to build a special library for Louis and his siblings, 4-year-old Prince George and 3-year-old Princess Charlotte.

“She loved all the old classics and Harry had the brilliant idea of starting a little library of first editions for Louis, Charlotte and George to enjoy as they get older,” the source told The Sun.

However, the book about the honey-loving bear apparently wasn’t the royal’s first pick.

“He originally wanted to get Lewis Carroll’s ‘Through The Looking Glass,’ which was on sale for £24,000, but decided ‘Winnie-the-Pooh’ would be more suitable,” the source added.

The event was special because it marked the first time the family has appeared in public together since Louis’ birth.
