The loss of Princess Diana has shaken the whole world when it happened years back. However, it has surely been an even more tragic event for her family and for her two young boys. Now, Prince Harry and Prince Williams are grownups, but the tragedy has shaken their childhood.
A new documentary about the death of Princess Diana has revealed the last memories that Harry and William have of their mother. The two didn’t have the chance to say a proper goodbye to their mother before she passed away in a car accident. Both Harry and William regretted that their last phone call with their mom was short and they actually wanted the call to end.
“The very last memory I have is a phone call from Balmoral [Castle in Scotland],” William revealed in the documentary. “At the time Harry and I were running around, minding our own business, playing with our cousins and having a very good time,” he went on to say. “Harry and I were in a desperate rush to say ‘Goodbye, see you later, can I go off?’ If I’d known what was going to happen I wouldn’t have been quite so blase about it. That phone call sticks in my mind quite heavily,” William explained.
Of course, both William and Harry would have wanted to have a more meaningful last conversation with their mother. “It was her speaking from Paris,” Harry also said. “I can’t necessarily remember what I said but all I do remember is regretting for the rest of my life how short the phone call was. If I’d known that that was the last time I was going to speak to my mother, the things I would have said to her,” the prince added.
Harry went on to say that thinking about that conversation has always been very hard for him. Of course, he did not know that would have been the “last time I’d speak to my mum, how differently that conversation would have panned out if I’d had even the slightest inkling that her life was going to be taken that night.”
All these impressive statements were made in the documentary Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, a documentary movie dedicated, of course, to Princess Diana.
