But what kind of person was she in her private life? A loving and devoted mother, her sons assure us. In an ITV documentary released on the 20th anniversary of her passing, Prince Harry and Prince William spoke about their late mom with admiration. She made sure to let them know how much she loved them! William said:

She was extremely good at showing her love. She was extremely good at showing what we meant to her and what feelings meant and how important it was to feel.

She loved her sons to bits, but something was missing in her family life. No, we aren’t talking about a loving husband, but it’s something Duchess Kate has been blessed with.

What was it that Diana wanted so badly?

Duchess Catherine is a happy mom of three kids: two boys, Prince George and Prince Louis, and a girl, Princess Charlotte. See what we’re getting at here?

According to Paul Burrell, Diana’s former butler (and, by his own account, her confidant), the Princess wanted to have another child – a daughter.

He said in Amazon’s The Diana Story:

To have another baby girl in the family would have made everything for Diana.

She was robbed of the opportunity of loving her grandchildren – especially Charlotte. She would have loved Kate, too.

Although Charlotte won’t get to know Diana in person, she is a lot like her: her expressions, her manners, the way she carries herself in public, and even her favorite hobby!

Diana loved dancing and was very good at it, and her little granddaughter also enjoys dancing. Kate has mentioned that Charlotte has been taking dance lessons.

Isn’t that sweet?
