How Prince William Reacted To The New Baby Photos With Mom Diana Revealed
Prince William’s reaction to a series of newly shared photographs of him and his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, has been revealed.
The Prince of Wales was seen in the heartwarming images, published by The Mirror on Wednesday, being carried by his mother in September 1982, when the royal was just three months old.
The photographs in question were handed to Geoffrey Phillips of Snappy Snaps Pimlico, who has a total of 23 photographs in the collection, by the valet of Lord King over 15 years ago and, in 2016, Geoffrey sent a letter enclosed with the photographs in question to the office of the then-Duke of Cambridge.
After receiving the letter and photos, Prince William’s private secretary at the time sent a response to Geoffrey outlining how William reacted. The royal at the time was said to be very touched to receive the photos of him as a newborn with his late mother and that he was grateful they were handled with such discretion.
Another photo in the collection shows William’s father then-Prince Charles cuddling his son as William looks towards the camera. A third photo shows the Princess of Wales, who tragically died in August 1997, in a white polo neck with a brown cardigan standing in front of a gorgeous countryside view.
The sweet photos show Charles and Diana as doting parents, with their love for their eldest son clear. The pictures also include some of Diana and Charles with his mother, the late Queen.
They were taken at the monarch’s Scottish estate Balmoral in September 1982 by Baron King, a British Airways businessman and friend of the royal family.
The photographs were originally private and reportedly not made for publishing, however, the snaps are now being auctioned. The photos and their negatives will be auctioned at Willingham Auctions in Cambridgeshire on Saturday, 4 March at 10am.
