Prince William in new Diana documentary: 'The funeral walk was one of the hardest things I've ever done'

18 Août 2017

"I had the impression that she was nearly to our side to help us get there", said the duke of Cambridge in Diana, 7 Days (Diana, 7 days), a document that the BBC will offer the 27 August and whose insights have been revealed. "I felt like she was nearly walking along beside us, to get us through it".

In the documentary, Harry recounted meeting members of the public in the days between Diana's death in Paris and funeral at London's Westminster Abbey on September 6, 1997.

Harry, just 12 when his mum died, described how even strangers were weeping during the funeral. Also speaking in the programme, Harry, who was 12 years old at the funeral, remembers about him, in addition to the trauma, the comfort brought by the public and "out of the hands of people who were wet with the tears they were wiping".

The pair open up about the painful day in a trailer for the BBC's Diana: 7 Days, which will mark the 20th anniversary of her death.

Diana's brother Earl Spencer and her sister Lady Sarah McCorquodale also feature in the BBC documentary, as do the Princess' lady-in-waiting Anne Beckwith-Smith and Lt Col Malcolm Ross, Comptroller of the Lord Chamberlain's Office. A documentary aired by Channel 5 has abounded in this sense, a former spokesman for ex-Prime minister Tony Blair, to be confident that the prince William refused to participate, preferring to gather and do his mourning in private. We couldn't protect her.

Since her tragic death in 1997, William and Harry have made it their life's work to continue their late mother's incredible legacy.

Sunny spells and showers across much of the United Kingdom today - the risk of heavy, thundery bursts at times. West to northwest winds will moderate in most parts but remain fresh to strong along the north and west coasts.

Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles had been acquaintances for almost 10 years before he married Diana Spencer. Knowing what we know now, there is little doubt that Diana wouldn't have wanted to see these pictures. She still is our mum. "Do our duties as sons in protecting her".

Prince Harry, 32, added: "When she died there was such an outpouring of emotion and love which was quite, which was quite shocking".

They revealed she harboured a playful, rebellious side - and encouraged the two of them to follow suit.

'Part of the reason why Harry and I want to do this is because we feel we owe it to her.' William detailed.

"She would come and watch us play football and smuggle candies into our socks".
