The close bond between mother and son is unbreakable. Especially, for the British royals, Prince William, Prince Harry, and their late mother, Princess Diana.
At 14 years old, William, the mature boy that he was, made a solemn vow to his mother just one year before she left this world.
Paul Burrell was the butler and longtime confidant of Princess Diana. He wrote an autobiography titled, "A Royal Duty," and revealed a promise William gave his mother just days after she was stripped of her royal title of Her Royal Highness.
According to "Express," the book, Queen Elizabeth II had approved Diana to keep the royal title following her nasty divorce from her son, Prince Charles, in 1996. However, Charles demanded it be removed.
The adolescent prince went up to his mother and promised that the day he becomes king, he will give her back her title of Her Royal Highness.
"Don't worry Mummy, I will give it back to you one day when I am king," Prince William reportedly said.
Just a year later, Princess Diana was in Paris where she died in a tragic car accident. William never got to fulfill his promise.
We can only imagine what William and Harry went through when they lost their mother. We are thankful that they have grown to be upstanding, generous men in this world. Their mother would be very pleased.
