Very touching to see William and his family at the funeral. Yes, Lady Jane Fellows also remind me of Diana.

One thing that really struck me reading the article is how much Lady Jane Fellows resembles the late Diana in the first picture. Its almost as if we could see what Diana would look like at that age.
In a very real way, I am sure that is true.

Some of the camera stills of HRH are almost 'spooky'. Sooo many of Diana's traits and mannerisms come through in William even in photos. IMO

Totally agree! Like looking in a mirror.I see it so much in the way he interacts with people, and in his being down to earth, his humor, his warmth, his compassion, his dignity. Sometimes I have to remind myself who I am looking at, especially in photos with children, the elderly, and the handicapped. He seems, like his mother to be highly perceptive to who needs a little " extra"- the least of these.
The apple did not fall far from the tree, and that is wonderful!

You spoke my sentiments. When I watch William interact with people (especially children and those with special needs), I do indeed see a lot of his late mother. Yes, they look very much alike, but the similarities in their personalities, as well as traits of kindness, compassion, and ability to relate to others are far more prominent in my eyes. He knows the importance of sharing himself, and that is something very few are aware of.

Actually I see it in both William and Kate and perhaps this is one thing that drew them to each other. It especially came out today with the both of them, Will attending his nanny's funeral and Kate hugging Terry just because he held his arms open wide for one. Gotta love it.

Both of those gestures tell us a great deal about these two people; they're not afraid to be themselves. They're kind and compassionate, and it comes naturally. They don't need to force it. They're a great asset to their country, and the Royal Family.

I think this photo is very revealing of the character of the duke. The other man is clearly telling William something that is serious and important to him. William is fully engaged in listening to what the man is saying. He is making eye contact and paying attention.

Video:
The Duke of Cambridge has presented the first charity award named in his honour. William gave the SkillForce Prince's Award to 10 children who worked on community projects with the SkillForce charity, ahead of a gala dinner at St James's Palace. William, who undertook last night's engagement without the Duchess of Cambridge, spoke afterwards at a dinner for the 100 Women In Hedge Funds Philanthropic Initiatives, a group of which he is also patron and which sponsored the awards.

He always struck me as someone who listened with his heart, and not just his ears.

Agree!
@ Daria- You said it! One of the most magical qualities about the Duke, (and others we know)
