Nearly twenty years have passed since he lost his beloved mother, but Prince William admits Princess Diana was with him on the biggest day of his life: his wedding to Kate Middleton.
In a clip teasing the upcoming ITV and HBO documentary Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, the 35-year-old admits he felt the late royal’s presence as he stood at the alter at Westminster Abbey back in 2011.
“When it came to the wedding, I did really feel that she was there,” he says.
“You know, there was times when you look to someone or something for strength and I very much felt she was there for me.”
The father-of-two also explains that his mother’s spirit is constantly at his side:
“There are not many days that go by that I don’t think of her, you know. Sometimes sad, sometimes very positively,” he says.
“I have a smile every now and again when someone says something, and I think, ‘that’s exactly what she would have said’, or ‘she would have enjoyed that comment.’”
Diana: Our Mother: Her Life And Legacy will air exclusively on Seven’s Sunday Night this Sunday 30 July at 7pm.
