A heartwarming story between mother and son has been told recently from Princess Diana's former personal protection officer, Ken Wharfe.
Prince Harry ingeniously crafted up a prank to pull on the ever-despised paparazzi. He even included his beloved mother, Princess Diana, to be apart of the practical joke.
The ploy included Diana doing something that she didn't want to do: Talk to the paparazzi while on vacation.
Initially, she refused to be apart of her son's plan but later changed her mind as she thought this would be a great way to get back at the photographers.
Her mind changed when the island's manager provided William and Harry will large catapults. This allowed William to proceed with his full-scale plan to drench the press.
“William said, we can go to the top of the cliff, and when mummy does the photo call we can fire the balloons at the press," Wharfe said in Robert Jobson's Royal Podcast. "As the press drew close enough the young princes launched water balloons, scoring a direct hit on the “Captain Mainwaring” of the group esteemed royal reporter James Whitaker."
“It was probably some of the best pictures ever taken of Diana in the Caribbean," he added.
The prank took place on the family's holiday in Necker Island at Richard Branson's private property. Today, the princes have a tough time with the press, as they believe the press is to blame for their mother's death on August 31, 1997.
“I think one of the hardest things to come to terms with is the fact that the people that chased her into the tunnel were the same people that were taking photographs of her while she was still dying on the back seat of the car," Prince Harry said.
“She had quite a severe head injury but she was very much still alive on the back seat," he continued. "And those people that caused the accident, instead of helping, they were taking photographs on the back seat, and then those photographs made their way back to news desks.”
