They miss Diana a lot and cherish every moment they've spent together. Prince Harry said:

Even talking about it now, I can feel the hugs she used to give us and, you know, I miss that. I miss that feeling, I miss that part of a family, I miss having that mother to be able to give you that hug, and that compassion that everybody needs.

And he added:

She was our mom, she still is our mom, you know. And, of course, as a son, I would say she is the best mom in the world.

Unfortunately, their parents got divorced, and they missed both so much. Prince Harry said:

The two of us were bouncing between the two of them. We never saw our mother enough. We never saw our father enough. There was all of that to contend with. It was an interesting way of growing up.

Prince William said he could feel Diana’s presence at the wedding. He said:

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

William tries to talk more about Diana with his kids. He said:

...I think I'm constantly talking about granny Diana. We've got more photos of her around the house now. It's hard because Catherine didn't know her, so she can't really provide that level of detail. I do regularly bring George and Charlotte to bed and talk about her. Just try to remind them there are two grandmas, there were two grandmas in their lives, and it's important they know who she was, and that she existed.

She was, indeed, the perfect mother for her sons!
