“Her desire was to make things better for people who needed help,”Wharfe writes. “As for the rift between William and Harry; when two siblings fight there’s usually a close relative to give advice and Diana would have taken on that role. She would have understood the problems that have been raised and helped her boys solve them, while giving Harry the advice he seems to lack right now.”

Wharfe claims that there would have been many bright spots. “There’s no doubt she would have enjoyed the relationships they have with their wives and loved spending time with her five grandchildren.”

Understanding Prince Harry

In the book, Wharfe sympathizes with Prince Harry, insisting that it’s easy to see how his actions are drawing from his mother’s experiences within The Firm.

“I think his wish to speak publicly is deeper. It is the way Diana and Meghan have been dealt with by members of the Royal Family, the lack of support his wife received, in the same way as Diana was never given approval or support for what she did,”The security specialist wrote his latest opus.

“With both women, he will be aware of how quickly things turned back to normal after marriage, and suddenly both were holed up in the Royal Estate with an expectation that they would simply follow rules rather than forge their own path.”

Remembering Princess Diana

Wharfe continues in the same vein. Hello! Diana’s indelible impression left an impression on all who saw her.

“There was no one quite like Diana. She is without doubt the most charismatic person I’ve ever met within the royal family. Throughout my time with her, I witnessed the good she did, the challenges she faced, her compassion and generosity,”Wharfe.

“This personal touch was unlike anything I’d experienced during my 16 years of service to the royal family, but it was the way Diana worked and, for the first time in my life, I learnt how important it is to listen.”

If Wharfe’s words ring true, it just might be the memory of their mother on this bittersweet occasion that brings the brothers back together. No matter how strained their relationship may be, it’s clear they will always be bonded by the shared memory of their mother, the great Princess Diana.
