All she ever wanted for her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, was happiness and to be there for each other always.
But while it may have been like that for a while, that’s hardly the case now – and according to royal biographer Andrew Morton, the People’s Princess would be “very hurt” by the brothers’ current rift.
“There’s no question she would have been heartbroken by it,” the veteran writer, who worked with Diana on her 1992 biography, Diana: Her True Story, said on the UK talk show Loose Women.
He believes she would have known just how to repair things.
“Knowing their personalities intimately, as a mother would do, she would be working out, perhaps with Prince Charles by her side, a way to reconcile them.”
The brothers have been on non-speaking terms after a series of fallouts brought on by Harry’s relationship and subsequent marriage to American actress Meghan Markle as well as his recent public attacks on the monarchy, which have left William devastated.
Morton says Diana saw Harry (36) as being a close confidante to William (39) especially in his future role as king of England.
But one could say she’s providing some sort of opportunity for the two to patch things up when they reunite for the first time at the unveiling of a new statue of their mother on Thursday.
Harry and William will lead the ceremony at Diana’s former home of Kensington Palace on 1 July to commemorate what would’ve been her 60th birthday.
It’s believed their father, Prince Charles (72), will not attend as it would be “too difficult” for him, according to an insider.
“These moments have the potential to resurface old wounds, and it brings back memories for him; happy, sad, regretful,” the source told the UK Times.
“Since Diana’s death, he has felt it’s best to keep those memories to himself and leave his sons to it.”
