PHOTOS: Princess Diana's 23 Sweetest Mom Moments
It’s been 19 year since Princess Diana passed away on Aug. 31, 1997 in a tragic car crash in Paris — and her legacy still lives on through her two beloved sons. PHOTOS: Prince Harry's Not-So-Royal Moments The Princess of Wales was a celebrated royal, humanitarian, and fashion icon, but it was her role as mother to Princes William and Harry that she treasured the most. “I hug my children to death and get into bed with them at night,” she once said. “I always feed them love and affection; it’s so important.” As a parent, Diana defied royal tradition by taking on a unique path. She would take them to visit homeless shelters and hospitals so they can see a world beyond their life of privilege. She enrolled them in public schools, as well as took them out for more normal activities involving burgers and bike-riding so they can spend more time with “mummy.” Even as an infant, William traveled abroad with Diana, something he would later do with his own son, Prince George, in 2014. PHOTOS: Grumpy Prince George Turns Frown Upside Down “Diana was uncomfortable in the role of absentee parent but had to travel a great deal. Inevitably, she left her children with nannies — just as she herself and so many other well-to-do British children have been left — but she tried to arrange her schedule to match the boys,” reports Newsweek. “In her official calendar, the princess had all the everyday details of her son’s utterly uneveryday lives marked in green ink.” “She played a huge part in my life and Harry’s growing up, in how we saw things and how we experience things,” Willam said to ABC News in 2012. “She very much wanted to get us to see the rawness of real life. And I can’t thank her enough for that, ‘cause reality bites in a big way, and it was one of the biggest lessons I learned is, just how lucky and privilege so many of us are — particularly myself,” he added.
