Prince William is reflecting on Princess Diana’s death, and recalls the painful memory of learning of his mother’s death. Diana died in a car crash in 1997 while being pursued by paparazzi. “Along with listening this week, there is something I do want to tell you,” William said while speaking at the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland as part of his royal tour of the country.

“Scotland is incredibly important to me and will always have a special place in my heart. I’ve been coming to Scotland since I was a small boy. As I grew up, I saw how my grandmother [Queen Elizabeth II] relishes every minute she spends here. And my father [Prince Charles] is never happier than when walking among the hills.”

He continues, “I was in Balmoral when I was told that my mother had died. Still in shock, I found sanctuary in the service at Crathie Kirk that very morning,” William shared “And in the dark days of grief that followed, I found comfort and solace in the Scottish outdoors. As a result, the connection I feel to Scotland will forever run deep.”

He does state that even though a painful memory occurred in that country, a happy one was to follow. It was the country where he met future wife, Kate Middleton. “And yet alongside this painful memory, is one of great joy,” William stated. “Because it was here in Scotland – 20 years ago this year – that I first met Catherine.”

“Needless to say, the town where you meet your future wife holds a very special place in your heart,” he says. “George, Charlotte and Louis already know how dear Scotland is to both of us, and they are starting to build their own happy memories here, too,” WIlliam said of the couple’s three children. “We have no doubt they will grow up sharing our love and connection to Scotland from the Highlands to the Central Belt, from the Islands to the Borders.”
It was recently that William and brother Prince Harry released their own statements following the news that BBC journalist Martin Bashir used deceitful behavior in order to obtain an interview with Diana in 1995 that has been deemed controversial to this day.
