In August it will be 16 years since new-dad Prince William lost his own mother. Princess Diana was a doting mother, beloved by William and Harry, who were only 15 and 12 when she died tragically in a car accident.
Happy occasions like marriage and the birth of his child must feel a little bittersweet for Will, since his mom isn’t there. Kate wears Diana’s diamond and sapphire ring. I’m reminded of Diana whenever I see it.
At age 31, Prince William is now a strapping, attentive, accomplished young father. Diana would have been so proud of him . . . and delighted to be a grandmother, I’m sure!
