Prince Harry says Princess Diana would be ‘sad’ about rift between her sons


Prince Harry is opening up about his relationship with his older brother Prince William, heir to the British throne, and how he thinks his late mother would react to the brothers’ highly publicized rift.

“I think she would be sad,” Harry said, according to a new clip of the interview released Thursday. “I think she’d be looking at it long term to know that there are certain things that we need to go through to be able to heal the relationship.”

He added that he had “felt the presence of my mum more so in the last two years than I have in the last 30.”

“Ultimately, what this all comes down to is, I don’t think that we can ever have peace with my family unless the truth is out there,” Harry said in the interview airing Monday.

Harry previously said that the memoir would be a “firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”

The Duke of Sussex writes in his memoir about his life growing up in the royal family — including the trauma of losing his mother and his time in the military — as well as his decision to step down from his senior royal role, his healing journey and fatherhood.
