William's Sadness That Diana Never Met Kate
Future heir to the throne Prince William has said he is "very sad" his mother Diana, Princess of Wales, will never get to meet his wife.
The future king, who is turning 30 next month, opened up about his personal life in an interview to mark the Queen's diamond jubilee this weekend.
Referring to his marriage to the Duchess of Cambridge in April last year, he said: "It's the one time since she's died where I've thought to myself it would be fantastic if she was here.
"And just how sad really, for her more than anything, not being able to see it because she would have loved the day.
"I'm just very sad she's never going to get the chance to meet Kate."
The Princess of Wales was killed in a Paris car crash on August 31, 1997, four years before the couple met at St Andrews University, where they both studied.
William also hinted that plans for their own children may not be far away.
When discussing his future with the RAF, he said: "I'm still trying to decide. It's a really difficult one because I really enjoy my time in the Air Force and I'd love to continue it.
"But the pressures of my other life are building. And fighting them off, or balancing the two of them, has proven quite difficult.
"More importantly, I'd rather like to have children. So that's the key thing really."
When pressed if there was any news he would like to share, William said: "You won't get anything out of me. Tight-lipped."
Prince William was speaking for American news channel ABC's show, The Jubilee Queen.
what do you think?
Very sad death.. but her death saved the future king of England having a half Arab brother.
I think the same for my mum. Sadly it's life.
And this is news is it ................jesus orange you must be desperate for stories.
Well said,and wear a seat belt ,and don't drive at 80 m.p.h into a tunnel ..........unless you are Lewis hamilton at monaco.
Maybe she wouldn't have carried on with Dodi if her old man had kept it in his pants !!
And maybe she would have.
.....just that one time, was it?
this article isn't about her life and how she chose to live it. its about a son missing his mum because of her untimely death at such a young age. it really isn't right to start pointing fingers at anyone. mind in my opinion your pointing the finger at the wrong person enough said
and how many others have lost their parents at an early age .............this one at least had no money worries .Poor story.
Just imagine the 'pressures' of being one of the most privileged people on the planet....
unbearable !! yeah right :)
