Prince William & Harry Remember Diana
10 years after Diana, Princess of Wales, died in a car crash in Paris, Princes William and Harry remember their mother at a special ceremony at the Guards’ Chapel in London on Friday.
Leading the ceremony, Harry, 22, delivered a moving speech: “Behind the media glare, to us, just two loving children, she was quite simply the best mother in the world,” he said. “We would say that, wouldn’t we? But we miss her… she made us and so many other people happy.”
Diana’s elder son, William, 25, also spoke, reading from St Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.
Joining the princes at the private service were their grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, their father Prince Charles and about 500 guests, including Elton John, Cliff Richard and celebrity photographer Mario Testino, as well as Prime Minister Gordon Brown and former prime ministers Tony Blair and John Major. Charles’s wife Camilla decided not to attend amid criticism that it would be inappropriate for her to be there.
