Prince William is the first child of Princess Diana and Prince Charles, the future King of England. Princess Diana was very loved in the world, and her many traits are inherited by her two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.

Princess Diana cried when she lost her “royal” status. Her son William comforted her by saying “Don’t worry Mummy, one day when I am king I will give it back to you.” Diana soon realised that one word didn’t matter and that she would rather be known as a humanitarian. Likewise Harry and Meghan need no royal titles to fulfil their dreams. I am sending them much love and these words of support which Diana wrote to me many years ago. Be strong, you three, and hold your heads high. #sussexroyal #kensingtonroyal #kensingtonpalace #princessdiana #princessdianaforever #queenofhearts #dianaprincessofwales #ladydiana #ladydi #englishheritage #nationaltreasure #ladydianaspencer #iconic #icon #princeharry #princewilliam #dukeofcambridge #dukeofsussex #dukeandduchessofsussex #harryandmeghan #meghanmarkle #royal #royalfamily #burrellsbritain #royalbutler #archie #archiemountbattenwindsor

Princess Diana was called ‘’Shy Di,’’ and her son Prince William had that side of her when he was younger. ‘’Shy Di’’ would sometimes avoid looking into the camera, and William did that too, but for some other reasons. Robert Jobson revealed that in his book William and Kate The Love Story: A Celebration Of The Wedding Of The Century, which reads, “The shyness that many commentators and royal observers detected in him was, according to some of William’s school friends, a winning trait when it came to attracting girls. He later insisted he was never really shy at all but just did not like being photographed and felt that if he kept his head down, people would not recognize him.’’

For some strange reason this post disappeared from my page, so I am posting it again…. Apologies to those who have seen it before. I wanted to send my support to Harry, Meghan and Archie as they embark on a new life so far away from our shores. I am reminded of these poignant words which Princess Diana wrote to me many years ago. They are a mother’s words of unconditional love which are as appropriate today as when she wrote them over 24 years ago. Above all else, Diana would want both her boys to be happy. What a shame she isn’t here today to cherish her grandchildren and help steer them towards their futures. #princessdiana #queenofhearts #dianaprincessofwales #princessdianaforever #ladydiana #ladydi #princewilliam #princeharry #kensingtonroyal #sussexroyal #royalfamily #buckinghampalace #kensingtonpalace #harryandmeghan #meghanmarkle #royal #royalbutler #burrellsbritain #englishheritage #dukeofcambridge #dukeofsussex #dukeandduchessofsussex #nationaltreasure #icon #iconic #archie #ladydianaspencer

Jobson also mentioned what Prince William had to say on the subject, stating, “But, it’s very funny. I was called shy because I put my head down so much when I was in public. It was never because I was shy. It was a really naive thing that I hadn’t picked up on. I know it’s silly and that everyone will laugh at it. But I thought that, when I was in public, if I kept my head down, then I wouldn’t be photographed so much.”

He further added, “Therefore, I thought, people wouldn’t know what I looked like so I could go about doing my own thing — which, of course, frankly was never going to work. It was so that people wouldn’t recognize me, and I could still go out with friends and things like that. So they just saw the top of my head. But usually, I was photographed with my eyes looking up through a big blond fringe.”
