The entire world knows how much Princess Diana loved her sons and that the loss of others had a significant impact on them. It was even harder for them since they had their sorrow displayed in front of the public and world.
Death & Funeral
When Princess Diana died in a car accident in Paris in August 1997, William was only 15 years old. Imagine how hard it was to him to read all the headlines then and to endure such pain and pressure. The picture of young Prince William walking behind his mother’s coffin was the memorable one. And, he was not alone in grieving, his brother Harry also was, and he was only 12 years old.
William and Harry were growing up without mother, but they were each other’s greatest support at all times. Some people say that one of the most important things that Diana taught her sons is that being together and keeping each other’s back is the most important thing. And they were the only ones who understood each other’s sorrow and pain.
They grew up to protect each other and that is their mother’s legacy.
