Watch: William and Harry Open Up About Their Mother’s Death
To mark the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death, Prince William and Prince Harry have opened up about their childhood memories of her in a documentary airing tonight on ITV and HBO titled Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy.
William and Harry have opened up about their childhood memories of Diana for a documentary marking the 20th anniversary of her death.
Harry, who has publicly spoken about his difficulty coping with her death says the subject was “a little too raw, up until this point.”
Among the painful memories the pair share in the documentary is the last conversation they had with their mother.
“Harry and I were in a desperate rush to say ‘goodbye,'” William recounts. “At the time Harry and I were running around minding our own business, playing with our cousins and having a very good time. If I’d known now obviously what was going to happen, I wouldn’t have been so blasé about it. That phone call sticks in my mind quite heavily.”
Regret aside though, the two also recall her positive energy.
“Our mother was a total kid through and through,” Prince Harry says. “When everybody says to me, you know, so she was fun, give us an example. All I can hear is her laugh in my head. And that sort of crazy laugh or where there was just pure happiness shown on her face.”

Ahead of the documentary the Duke and Prince Harry have also released a series of photos from Princess Diana’s personal album via social media.
