Prince Harry has told for the first time how Prince Charles broke the news of his mother’s death.
In an emotional interview, he and Prince William also reveal their reactions to being told that Diana, Princess of Wales, had been killed in a car crash in Paris.
Opening up on the tumultuous seven days that followed the accident, the princes give a vivid account of how they had to conceal their devastation amid the extraordinary outpouring of public grief.
A BBC documentary, to be broadcast on Sunday, shows William and Harry speaking of their shock and bewilderment at the ‘peculiar’ scale of public mourning.
The princes also give a heart-rending account of having to walk behind Diana’s coffin at the funeral, with William recalling that he ‘just wanted to go into a room and cry’.
