Princess Diana was a member of the British royal family and was viewed by many as the people’s princess. She was a doting mother to her two children, Prince William and Prince Harry, and was always caring for them dearly. During her time in the spotlight as a key member of the royal family due to her marriage to Prince Charles, Diana was highly respected for her friendliness, charisma, activism, and charity work. She was also well-known for having an impeccable sense of style.
Once she became the Princess of Wales, Diana took on many royal duties and responsibilities and represented the royal family well at many events and functions across the Commonwealth. As a mother, much of her work centered around the upbringing of children. Diana also worked at balancing life as a mother and an important royal figure, and oftentimes would bring her sons with her during royal outings. She regularly broke royal traditions as she set out to be the type of mother she yearned to be.
Although she is no longer with us, Diana’s memory has continued to live on through her sons. Her eldest son, Prince William, is now a father of his own to three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Although they never got to meet their grandma, Princess Diana, Prince William makes sure to make sure his children know who she is. Prince William has shared that his own little family is keeping his mother’s memory alive in their own way. He has even joked that Princess Diana would have been an outstanding grandma.
According to People, Prince William has shared many memories with his children about his late mom, Princess Diana. “We’ve got more photos up round the house now of her and we talk about her a bit and stuff,” he shared in a new documentary “In Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy.”
“It’s hard because obviously Catherine didn’t know her, so she cannot really provide that — that level of detail,” he shared. “So, I do [when] regularly putting George or Charlotte to bed, talk about her and just try and remind them that there are two grandmothers, there were two grandmothers in their lives, and so it’s important that they know who she was and that she existed,” he added.
Even though his mom isn’t around to be there for his three children, Prince William said that she would have been an incredible grandmother. “She’d be a nightmare grandmother, absolute nightmare,” he joked. “She’d love the children to bits, but she’d be an absolute nightmare. She’d come and go and she’d come in probably at bath time, cause an amazing amount of scene, bubbles everywhere, bathwater all over the place and — and then leave.”
The dad shared that his mom was so present in his and Prince Harry’s life that he aims to provide that same level of support to his three children. “I want to make as much time and effort with Charlotte and George as I can because I realize that these early years particularly are crucial for children, and having seen, you know, what she did for us,” he said.
According to Nine, as long as Prince William is around, Prince Diana’s philanthropic efforts will live on. Royal commentator, Katie Nicholl, said, “As long as William is there, even as an older man, as an older king, the fruits of his labour, such as work that he will do, the king that he will be is going to be ... the influence of Diana, the influence that she had on him from such an early age and throughout his adulthood, is there. You can’t deny it.”
Writing for The Big Issue in June of 2022, William shared that having all three of his children see good work done in the world is very important to him.
“Homelessness is not an irrevocable fact of life. It is an issue that can be solved,” he wrote. “In the years ahead, I hope to bring George, Charlotte and Louis to see the fantastic organisations doing inspiring work to support those most in need – just as my mother did for me,” he said.
Prince William and The Duchess of Cambridge work hard to make sure that their children have philanthropic efforts instilled in them forever by setting a good example. Back in June 2020, the royal family posted to their Instagram that their two eldest kids were volunteering alongside their father.
The photo read, “As we approach the end of #VolunteersWeek The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are pleased to share a new photo taken by The Duchess as they played their own part in the national volunteering effort. In April, The Duke and Duchess and their family visited the Sandringham Estate where they packed up and delivered food parcels to isolated pensioners in the local area.”Prince George, Princess Catherine, Prince Louis, Prince William, Princess Charlotte (2022), (Jonathan Brady - Pool/Getty Images)
