Prince William and Prince Harry's Most Heartwarming Quotes About their Mum Princess Diana

Prince William and Prince Harry will be marking what would have been their mother Princess Diana's 60th birthday on Thursday 1 July.

It's been 24 years since the People's Princess was tragically killed in a car accident in Paris, and while her sons will be remembering her in private, the brothers have spoken openly about missing their mother several times before.

For Diana's 20th death anniversary in 2017, William and Harry even starred in a couple of TV documentaries, where they spoke extensively about their beloved mum. Let's see their most memorable quotes through the years…

Prince Harry spoke of the lives his mother touched when revealing that he and his brother William have commissioned a 60th birthday statue in her honour. "Our mother touched so many lives. We hope the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on her life and her legacy," he said.

In an exclusive interview with HELLO! in May 2016, Harry also said he and his brother were determined to create a "permanent memorial" to their mother. "Something needs to be put in stone or in place as a memory," he said. "Lots of people still talk about her. Every single day we still think about her."

When Harry proposed to Meghan Markle in 2017, talk soon turned to his mother during an interview with the BBC, as he admitted the celebration was bittersweet.

"It is days like… days like today when I really miss having her around and miss being able to share the happy news," he said. "But you know with the ring and with everything else that's going on… I'm sure she's with us, yeah, you know, jumping up and down somewhere else."

William was just 15 when his mum died, while Harry was 12.

Speaking in an interview with GQ, Prince William opened up about his sadness that Diana will never know his children. "I would like to have had her advice," he said. "I would love her to have met Catherine and to have seen the children grow up. It makes me sad that she won't, that they will never know her."
