They shared personal memories and what Diana meant to them both in the past and the present.

Prince Harry said the outpouring of emotion and love for Diana “was quite shocking.” The prince said that it was amazing their mother had such a huge effect on so many people. “It was beautiful at the same time, and it was amazing now looking back at it.”

'We feel we owe it to her.'

The princes were interviewed on-camera where they both shared and reflected on the tragic event and recollections of Princess Diana.

According to EW, Prince William said the feeling that they owe it to their mother was part of the reason why he and Prince Harry did the interview. The Duke of Cambridge talked further about the feeling they let their mother down when they were younger and they “couldn’t protect her.”

Two decades later, Prince William and Prince Harry feel the need to stand up for her name and remind people of Diana’s character and person.
