Prince William doesn’t frequently wear his heart on his sleeve, but he spoke out recently with Apple‘s Time To Walk, recalling his mother, the late Princess Diana, his family’s love of music and the trauma he went through as a pilot.
He says his mom would crank on Tina Turner‘s “The Best” in the bar to help William and brother Prince Harry cope with “the anxiety of going back to school”.
William, 39, who was 15 when the Princess of Wales died in 1997, continued, “My mother, she’d be driving along singing at the top of her voice. We’d even get the policeman security in the car: he’d occasionally be singing along as well. We’d be singing and listening to the music right the way up to the gates at school where they dropped you off.”
