The late Princess Diana had all our hearts but hers belonged to Prince Harry and Prince William always.
There is no one who can say that Princess Diana did not love her boys, Prince William and Prince Harry. And those who were close to her will tell you the same. They saw the way she was involved with the boys. She never let that bond between them break under royal pressure and was determined to raise them in a modern way. She wanted to give them a solid ground to build the foundation of who they are today.
According to E! Online, the princess was a rebel against the royal traditions. From delivering the boys at a hospital instead of in the palace to traveling everywhere with them even as babies, her bond with her sons was tight. Her close friends agree and it was especially after the infamous divorce that she was fully able to devote herself to them. Here are some of the moments the late Princess Diana's friends shared with Daily Mail that are guaranteed to make you laugh, cry and giggle at the kind of mother she was.
Nish Joshi, a holistic health practitioner, recounts, "We'd watch EastEnders together at Kensington Palace — Diana would sit there in her dressing gown and tell me funny stories. One time Harry told me he thought his mother was bonkers. 'Tell Nish what happened and ask him what he would have done,' Diana said to Harry."
"He told me the fire alarm had gone off in the middle of the night and staff were evacuating the apartment. Harry went to look for Diana and found his mother putting on her mascara in the bathroom. 'Come on Mummy, we are going to be burnt.' She replied, 'I'm coming in a minute.' It makes sense to me, I told Harry. 'But she's barmy,' he said. Diana then said, 'Harry, within a few minutes I was going to have two dozen firemen in my front garden. I was not going outside in my nightie without my mascara.'"
"One day William and Harry let a stink bomb off in the hall after Diana had taken them to the joke shop, and then they let another off in Charles's office. He went absolutely mad, but Diana just laughed," says Carolan Brown, personal trainer.
"Being flirtatious was part of her style and certainly an incident at her mother's house in Scotland involving William showed that he was aware of this," says Ken Wharfe, former bodyguard. "Diana had asked me if I wanted her to wash my shirts. I said, 'No Ma'am, that's ridiculous', but she said, 'No, I like washing' so I threw a couple in. The next morning I came in and she was ironing my shirts."
"She was standing there with only a towel around her and William came in and said, 'Oh, why are you doing Ken's shirts?' and pulled the towel off her. She was totally naked and I said, 'William, that was stupid.' William said, 'I know Mummy likes you', and I said, 'William, Mummy likes a lot of people. Let's not do that.' He was slightly aware of her allure — he wasn't stupid. It all happened so quickly. There was a smile on Diana's face. Whatever she was thinking, she had to see the funny side."
"Harry is so like his mother. She was so, 'This is what I'm going to do because it's the right thing — what do you mean it isn't the official way — not protocol?' Harry is the same with Meghan, whereas William would be more, 'What can we do here?' and the advisers, or grey suits as Diana used to call them, would have advised him. But Harry is like his mum, instant reaction through emotion," personal chef Darren McGrady recalls.
"The boys are different like that. She always used to say, 'William is deep like his dad and stubborn, and Harry is a hothead like me; he does the first thing that comes into his head. They will look after the heir and I will look after the spare.' She connected with Harry more."
And these are just some of the accounts. With Diana, there was never a dull moment. May her soul rest in peace.
