It’s been more than two decades since the world lost Princess Diana. Her two sons are already the adult men with their own families. But memories about their late mother will always live in their hearts.

Memories from childhood are especially important for both brothers. Did you know that Diana even refused to separate with little William due to her royal duties?

Her sons were Diana’s main priority

Charles and Diana had a beautiful love story with a sad ending. But despite their marriage failed, it gave them two wonderful sons, William and Harry.

Unfortunately, Diana passed away when her sons were just teenagers, but still, they have the sweetest memories of her since their childhood.

In his book dedicated to the life of Princess Diana, a Russian author Dmitrij Medvedev mentioned one interesting fact you probably didn’t know about your favorite royal.

Diana refused to travel on business trips leaving 9-month-old William alone. When in 1983, she and Charles planned an official visit to Australia and New Zealand, Diana stressed that she wanted to take William with them.

No need to say that Diana’s desire to travel with her son faced a lot of critics from the trip organizers, as well as from other members of the royal family. But the Princess was adamant in her decision. She said:

In such case, I will not travel at the long distances from now on.  When I have little kids, I just can’t leave them without their mother for such a long period.

Sweet memories about mommy Diana

William and Harry often talk about Diana in their interviews. William, who is a proud father of three now, once shared an important thing about parenting which he learned from his mother.

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.
