It's been almost 20 years since Princess Diana died tragically in a car accident and this year we've seen several documentaries celebrating her. The latest, called Diana Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, which airs on ITV and HBO, features personal interviews with her son, Prince William.

In the documentary, William opens up about how he's kept his mother's memory alive with his own children, George, 4, and Charlotte, 2. In addition to decorating his and Duchess Kate's home with pictures of his late mother, William says he talks about her "constantly" with his kids, according to People.


“It’s hard because obviously Catherine didn’t know her, so she cannot really provide that—that level of detail,” he says. “So, I do [when] regularly putting George or Charlotte to bed, talk about her and just try and remind them that there are two grandmothers, there were two grandmothers in their lives, and so it’s important that they know who she was and that she existed.”

So what kind of grandma would Diana be if she were still around today? A "nightmare" according to William.

“She’d be a nightmare grandmother, absolute nightmare,” he joked. “She’d love the children to bits, but she’d be an absolute nightmare. She’d come and go and she’d come in probably at bath time, cause an amazing amount of scene, bubbles everywhere, bathwater all over the place and—and then leave.”

Sounds like a perfect grandma to us.
