Prince William And Prince Harry Open Up About Mom

Prince William and Prince Harry occasionally talk about their mom Princess Diana, but to mark the 20th anniversary of her death, the brothers have really gotten candid about what she was like as a mom for the documentary "Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy." 

William, who was 15 when Diana was killed in a car accident, says he felt his mom's spirit during his 2011 wedding. “When it came to the wedding, I did really feel that she was there,” William says. “You know, there was times when you look to someone or something for strength, and I very much felt she was there for me.” He adds that since his wife never met his mom, he actively tries to talk to his two kids about their "Granny Diana." 

Both William and Harry, who was 12 when he lost his mom, remember the final phone call they had with her. The boys rushed to get off the phone so they could go back outside and play, a decision that has stuck with them.  “If I’d known that was the last time I’d speak to my mother, the things I would have said to her,” Harry explains. “I have to deal with that for the rest of my life.” Princess Di was set to be reunited with her sons the following day after her month-long trip to France.

"Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy" is now available on HBO GO and HBO On Demand.
