Keeping The Memory Alive: Prince William And His Neverending Tributes To Princess Diana

Date July 3, 2018 12:28

Prince William has always portrayed his love for Diana in the most sincere way possible. His wife, his kids, and his surroundings are all involved in his tributes to the deceased mother.

Deadly accident

Princess Diana died tragically on August 31, 1997. At the moment of the crash, she was in her Mercedes S280 with three other men, two of which were also pronounced dead. A good friend of hers, Dodi Fayed, and the driver, Henri Paul, died instantly after the accident. Diana’s bodyguard, Trevor Rees-Jones, suffered major injuries but survived the horrible crash. Henri was later claimed to be under the influence of anti-depressants and anti-psychotics that might have had an impact to the subsequent control loss.


Regardless of how bitter the memories about the late princess may be, her sons will bear her love and care in their minds forever.

William's tributes

Prince William tributes his deceased mom every time he has a chance. On April 29, 2011, during his wedding with Kate, William claimed he felt his mother’s presence on the ceremony:

When it came to the wedding, I did really feel that she was there. You know, there were times when you look to someone or something for strength, and I very much felt she was there for me.

Prince William never stops talking about his mom to his kids. Even though the little ones can’t feel Diana’s presence near them, their daddy provides numerous stories about the deceased grandmother so that the children understood what an amazing person she was:

We’ve got more photos up ‘round the house now of her, and we talk about her a bit and stuff.


What is more, little Charlotte, yet unknowingly, also tributes her late granny herself. The princess’ newest hobby, dancing, is something Diana always admired and adored doing.
