Prince William is making sure Prince George and Princess Charlotte know who Princess Diana was.
In the new British documentary Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, William shared that he is “constantly talking about Granny Diana” to his children. William revealed that he keeps his mother memory alive with photos of her around the house to remind his family of her.
“It’s hard because obviously Catherine didn’t know her, so she cannot really provide that, that level of detail,” he said in the documentary, which airs on Monday. Instead, William says he talks about his late mom to the children at bedtime to “just try and remind them that there are two grandmothers, there were two grandmothers in their lives, and so it’s important that they know who she was and that she existed.”

Prince William shared his opinion about what he thinks Princess Diana would have been like as a grandmother. “She’d be a nightmare grandmother, absolute nightmare,” William teased. “She’d love the children to bits, but she’d be an absolute nightmare. She’d come and go and she’d come in probably at bath time, cause an amazing amount of scene, bubbles everywhere, bathwater all over the place and — and then leave.”
He thinks that the precious time he spent with Princess Diana and the lessons she gave him before her death have made him a better father. “I want to make as much time and effort with Charlotte and George as I can because I realize that these early years particularly are crucial for children, and having seen, you know, what she did for us.”
