Britain’s Prince William and Harry have spoken of their regret over the last conversation they had with their mother Princess Diana before she died, saying the telephone call was “desperately rushed”.
In a documentary called “Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy”, timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of Diana’s death in a Paris car crash on Aug. 31, 1997, the two princes said they spoke to their mother shortly before she died.
“Harry and I were in a desperate rush to say goodbye, you know ‘see you later’ ... if I’d known now, obviously, what was going to happen, I wouldn’t have been so blase about it and everything else,” Prince William said.
Prince Harry said: “It was her speaking from Paris, I can’t really necessarily remember what I said but all I do remember is probably regretting for the rest of my life how short the phone call was.”
Nick Kent, the film’s executive producer, told Reuters he believed the documentary offered a glimpse of “the private Diana”.
“Nobody has ever told this story from the point of view of the two people who knew her better than anyone else, and loved her the most: her sons.”
