The fight between Harry and the royal family, Prince William is coming on the surface with his emotional statement about her late mother Diana. Though the royal family is under stress nowadays because of the pandemic, the loss of Prince Philip and the ongoing battle between the brothers is bound to wear anyone down.
But seeing the Duke of Cambridge take a cue from his Prince Harry is sharing his emotional story is heart-touching. In Scotland, William revealed that the country “will always have a special place in [his] heart” because he sees how his “grandmother relishes every minute she spends here.” Yet his hardest days were also spent there because it’s where he learned his mother, Princess Diana, had passed away.
He said in BBC video, “I was at Balmoral [Castle] when I was told my mother had died”. “Still in shock, I found sanctuary in the service at Crathie Kirk that very morning. And in the dark days of grief that followed, I found comfort and solace in the Scottish outdoors. As a result, the connection I feel to Scotland will forever run deep.”
The public is in a little awe while seeing an emotional side of Duke of Cambridge, that’s normally reserved for Harry, who has always said he is his mother’s son. Prince William often takes his father, Prince Charles’, approach of appearing tolerant, reserved, and with a few hard edges. If we examine, we see that Charles and William on one side and the late Diana and Harry on the other side.
“My father used to say to me when I was younger, he used to say to both William and me, ‘Well, it was like that for me. So, it’s going to be like that for you.’ That doesn’t make sense — just because you suffered it doesn’t mean that your kids have to suffer,” Harry revealed on his Apple TV + show, The Me You Can’t See.
There’s no need for anyone to suffer in silence, so it was heartwarming to see William share one of his greatest tragedies, along with one of his sweetest moments — meeting wife Kate Middleton while studying at St. Andrew’s in Scotland.
“And yet alongside this painful memory, is one of great joy. Because it was here in Scotland, 20 ago this year, that I first met Catherine,” he continued. “Needless to say, the town where you meet your future wife holds a very special place in your heart.”
