Video: She Touched The Hearts Of Many: Princes William And Harry Told How They Learned About The Death Of Their Mother
Princess Diana passed away almost 20 years ago, and her sons are still very painful to remember that time. In the BBC documentary "7 Days", Princes William and Harry shared their memories of learning about their mother's death.
Their father, Prince Charles, told them the hard news. During the accident, he and his sons, Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, were visiting Scotland. Harry sympathizes with his father: “The worst thing that can befall a parent is the need to inform the children that their other parent is gone. Only he stayed with my brother, and dad tried to protect and take care of us as much as possible. But this does not mean that he did not grieve with us."
Diana's eldest son, William, recalls that then he felt "complete numbness", and the youngest, Harry, that he could not trust anyone. William still appreciates the support of Elizabeth II: “My grandmother took care of my brother and dad. She made sure that we did not come across newspapers and other things related to the tragedy, there was not even a hint of this in our house, and we were not aware that the death of my mother caused such a response. Our privacy was protected, and we could calmly mourn our mother, collect our thoughts away from strangers."
At the end of the program, Harry opened up: “For years I hid my head in the sand, repeating:“I don’t want to be Prince Harry, I don’t want to be responsible, this role is not for me, what did it cost my mother, why did I have so much grief?” But now my goal is to complete all my mother's good undertakings."
Harry is grateful to everyone who remembers and appreciates Princess Diana: “When my mother passed away, we were covered with such a wave of emotions and love from people that it just stunned us. I now remember that it was both beautiful and amazing. I'm sure my mother touched the hearts of many people."
