Diana’s memory has persevered even though she is no longer with us thanks to the way her boys have carried on her legacy.
On July 1, 2021, the day that would have been the princess’ 60th birthday, Prince William and Prince Harry presented a statue in honor of their mother in recognition of the great influence she had on their lives.
During the time that their mother was still living, they had a wonderful connection with her and created many happy memories together.
Always placing her children at the top of her list of priorities, Diana made it a point to bring them along on all of her official royal engagements and appearances.
Princess Diana brought Prince William along with her on her very first trip outside of the country in 1983, when he was just nine months old.
This was a violation of the established etiquette, since the two heirs to the throne were not supposed to travel together in case of an emergency.
Diana, on the other hand, was used to breaking away from the long-standing customs that her royal family had established in the past.
William will always keep a particular place in his heart for his late mother, and in her honor, he has even allowed her memories to shape the music that is now on his playlist.
William disclosed the genres of music that he and other members of the Cambridge family listen and said that his taste in music is much unlike to that of his children, who are obsessed with Shakira’s “Waka Waka.”
William has a special place in his heart for another song that is more romantic in nature as William was able to recall:
“… When I was becoming anxious about going back to school, my mother would play a variety of tunes on the piano for me to listen to.
And one of the songs I massively remember and has stuck with me all this time, and one that I still, to this day, still quite enjoy secretly, is Tina Turner’s “The Best,” because sitting in the backseat, singing away, it felt like a real family moment. ”
Additionally, he said, “When I listen to it today, it takes me back to those car drives, and it brings back a lot of memories of my mother.”
