“William, Harry and The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate are indeed keeping Diana’s memory alive through their own actions. What’s amazing to me is the passing of time. Now William and Catherine are nearly the same age as Diana when she died”. I love the fact that there’s still such veneration inside her immediate family for what she was, and what she actually meant. Well, I think that’s fantastic”.
