Prince William Felt His Mother Diana's Presence on His Wedding Day
In an emotional new interview, Prince William has opened up about how the loss of his mother Diana impacted his wedding day. The interview was conducted for the documentary Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, airing this evening in the US and UK, which features Princes William and Harry speaking candidly about Diana for the first time.
"Beforehand, I had a lot of time to think about it," William said of his mother's absence in the run-up to his 2011 wedding to Kate Middleton. "When it came to the wedding, I did really 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."
During the same portion of the documentary, Harry recalled what a good hugger Diana was. "She would just engulf you and squeeze you as tight as possible… Even talking about it now, I can feel the hugs that she used to give us, and I miss that, I miss that feeling, I miss having that mother to be able to give you those hugs and give you that compassion that I think everybody needs."
Diana, Our Mother premiered on HBO on July 24.
