Princess Diana had some harsh words for her infant son Prince William when he complained about photographers as she told him he “had to get used” to them.
How Diana told Prince William ‘you HAVE to get used to’ photographers?
Prince William has never had a normal life. There was always a matter of public interest surrounding him and his younger brother, Harry.
They were the infants who were photographed thousands of times.
When Prince William first arrived at the West London school in 1987, he was greeted by hundreds of photographers. They were eager to get a glimpse of the little prince attending his first day at school.
It was this day, Princess Diana had some harsh words for her son. At the time, William reportedly told her that he ‘did not like photographers’. In a documentary, ‘When Kate Met William: A Tale Of Two Lives’, Diana’s former protection officer, Ken Wharfe revealed something. He said:-

“His first day at school, which I recall quite vividly, we left Kensington Palace and we got in the car. Diana said to him ‘listen, William, this is a very important day in your life. So you need to be very careful'”.
It was, indeed a big day for him.
The royal insider claims that when William asked his mother what she meant, she explained that there would be a lot of photographers there. When the Duke of Cambridge told his mother that he doesn’t like photographers, Diana is believed to have told her son something that changed his life.
Princess Diana said: “I know, but you have to get used to it, William”.

Diana was aware that William’s entire life would be of interest to the public.
Ken Wharfe said that as time moved on, Prince William was very aware of who he was. And with his lifestyle, it didn’t take much to realise there was something special about him. However, he added: “But to his credit, and to the credit of his mother, she tried desperately to make sure he had as normal an upbringing as possible”.
This is an approach the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has taken with their three children George, Charlotte and Louis.
