We know that the only grandparents Prince William's children know are Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles. But we can't let go of the curiousity to know how Princess Diana would've been in that role.

When Prince George was born, Charles admitted that he wasn't fully prepared for being a granddad, but now, we know that he's doing a splendid job, and both he and Camilla absolutely adore William and Kate's three little miracles.

We can't help but wonder, would Diana have been more hands on with her three grandkids? Would they prefer to spend most of their time with her? Diana's brother, Charles Spencer certainly thinks she was born to be a grandmother.

The biggest regret of Diana's brother

Charles Spencer has never let the memory of his late sister go. He often talks about her and imagines how it would be like if she was still alive. It's evident that it pains him every day to wake up and realize that Diana isn't with us anymore.

One of the most heartbreaking things for Charles to realize is that his nephew's children will never meet their grandmother. According to him, she would've been the best with them, and it's difficult to accept what George, Charlotte, and Louis are missing. As Spencer told People:

One of the great tragedies is that Diana would have been the best grandmother ever.

However, Charles notes that he sees Diana in Wiliam and Harry, especially in the way they behave in public. He sees his sister's composure and kindness in them, which warms his heart.

In addition, Spencer knows he isn't the only one who keeps Diana's memory alive. Prince William admitted to "constantly talking about granny Diana" with his children.

Charles is grateful to see that people still praise Diana, as he's convinced her memory deserves to be passed on to future generations:

I think that it’s important for people who are under 35, who probably won’t remember her at all, to remember that this is a special person. Not just a beautiful one.

We certainly won't forget, and believe Diana would've, indeed, been a perfect grandmother. What do you think?
