Prince Harry, 22, Prince William, 25, and their royal family and friends gathered to remember Princess Diana who passed away in a tragic car accident 10 years ago. Prince Harry, who was 12 when Princess Diana died, said at the memorial service,
To lose a parent so suddenly at such a young age, as others have experienced, is indescribably shocking and sad. To us, just two loving children, she was quite simply the best mother in the world. When she was alive, we completely took for granted her unrivaled love of life, laughter, fun and folly. She was our guardian, friend and protector. She never once allowed her unfaltering love us to go unspoken or undemonstrated.
It was an event which changed our lives forever, as it must have done for everyone who lost someone that night. But what is far more important to us now and into the future is that we remember our mother as she would wish to be remembered, as she was: fun-loving, generous, down to earth and entirely genuine.
The memorial was held at the Guards’ Chapel near Buckingham Palace. Both Harry and William were responsible for organizing the service and for them it was a tribute to a mother they loved and adored.
