Princess Diana died 25 years ago today (August 31). However, their sons couldn’t be further apart right now. A fact that, according to a royal biographer, would have greatly disturbed Princess Diana.
On August 31, 1997, 25 years ago, Princess Diana († 36) died in a tragic car accident in Paris. Her two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, were just 15 and 12 years old at the time. For a long time, the early loss of their mother brought the two princes together. But after Prince Harry and his wife Duchess Meghan (nee Meghan Markle) decided in early 2020 to step down from all royal duties and live in the United States from then on, the relationship between the brothers cooled off noticeably.
The gap widened even further when Harry and Meghan gave an explosive interview to US talker Oprah Winfrey in March 2021. In it they complained, among other things, of racism at court and social neglect on the part of the royal family. Royal biographer Andrew Morton (69) is certain that Princess Diana would be appalled by her sons’ current relationship, reports ok.co.uk. She would have done everything to reunite Prince William and Prince Harry.
“Like any other mother, she would have liked to bang her sons’ heads together and make them kiss and make up,” says Andrew Morton, who also reveals that Princess Diana had a very different idea of the future of her sons .
“It’s not what she planned,” the nobility expert said of the current situation, adding, “She wanted William to be the next king and she wanted Harry to be his wingman.” But you can’t be a wingman 6,000 miles away. She would be very concerned about the situation between her two boys.”
Despite the obvious dispute between the two brothers, Andrew Morton is certain that Princess Diana would have recognized positive aspects in her sons’ lives. “She would be so glad her sons now have children of their own and are both happily married,” said the 69-year-old, adding, “The interesting thing about William and Harry is that they both married for love, not duty. In a way, one of her great legacies is how William took the time to court Catherine. He learned a lot from the mistakes of his mother and father.”
The Duchess Meghan podcast everyone has been waiting for is here. Yesterday (August 30) the second episode was released with guest star Mariah Carey, with whom she discussed “diva” airs. When Mariah Carey called Meghan a diva, she briefly lost her composure.
Immediately after the birth of his second son, Prince Harry, Prince Charles is said to have made an ill-considered statement that greatly hurt Princess Diana.
Immediately after the accidental death of Princess Diana 25 years ago, conspiracy theories shot out of the ground. That’s behind it.
