Best Answer

Harry Potter was usually babysat by Arabella Figg on Dudley Dursley's birthday but that day she tripped over her cat and broke her foot so couldn't look after him. As the Dursley's had nobody else to look after Harry - they were forced to take him with them.

What did Dudley Dursley do to Harry Potter to make Harry hate him in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?

Nothing. Harry does not hate Dudley. After Harry arrived at Number Four, in 1997, Dudley made at least one known attempt to reconcile with Harry. Dudley placed a cup of tea outside Harry's room. When Harry parted ways with the Dursleys, Dudley was the only member to bid Harry a heartfelt farewell. He shook Harry's hand, and thanked him for saving his life (though it was his soul the dementor would have taken). The members of the Order of the Phoenix escorting the Dursleys into hiding were not satisfied by this, and thought a more adequate apology was in order, but the Dursleys left with nothing more to say.
