Prince Harry recalls how he ended Prince William’s wedding speech with a sad note on Diana.
The Duke of Sussex shares private bits from his elder brother’s wedding as he opens up in memoir ‘Spare.’
Writing that he decided to say a few words about Princess Diana, Harry pens: “When it died away I closed on a serious note. Mummy: How she’d have loved to have been here. How she’d have loved Kate, and how she’d have loved seeing this love you’ve found together. As I spoke these words I didn’t look up. I didn’t want to risk making eye contact with Pa or Camilla—and above all with Willy. I hadn’t cried since Mummy’s funeral, and I wasn’t going to break that streak now.”
He adds: “I also didn’t want to see anyone’s face but Mummy’s. I had the clearest vision in my mind of her beaming on Willy’s Big Day, and having a proper laugh about that dead ermine.”
