That has to be the most excruciating part of a sudden death. The loss of the chance to have "last words" with each other. To say "I love you" one more time and to be there with a loved one as they pass on.

why are they talking about this in public? It is int teh past, discuss among their famly and friends. Talk to a therapist. Don't drag it all out in public again. we can guess that there were difficulties in the family esp for the children. we don't need to know the details.

Y'know, I agree with you. It does no good to publicly refresh the memories of the bad times.

A lot of this documentary apparently concentrates on Diana's impact and her influence on others, re her charity work and clauses. More people are speaking about Diana than her two sons. The DM is just cherry-picking some of the princes' musings and remembrances of their mother. I'm looking forward to it.

I don't know why they want to speak about their mother but surely that as well as silence, is their prerogative?

I SO wish the Princes would stop 'emoting' in Public, as [their Mothers experience proves] NO good will come of it.. Their words will be twisted and used against themselves or others they love..
Bare ones Soul, by all means, to trusted family/friends/therapists but not to 'the wider World' and especially not to the Press...

I am so glad that the Princes have chosen to share some of their special memories about their mother. It's wonderful to finally hear from her children and not just from journalists or others who have no real connection to Diana other than to make a profit using her name.

20th Anniversary of the Death of Diana, Princess of Wales: August 31, 2017

Why don't people actually wait to watch the documentary before they pass judgment. It's way easy to cherry pick stuff and then the context is lost.

People have emotions and Royals are people. They aren't robots. You would not tell someone who lost a family member in the recent terror attacks or Grenville fire not to show emotions but for a Royal it a no no. Harry gets praised on this site all the time because he shows his emotions and hugs a bunch of people, but he and William can't talk about their late mother?

Did anyone complain when Charles went on tv and emoted about the loss of his Grandmother the QM? Should no royal speak of their emotions when the Queen and Philip pass?

I lost my mother 12 years ago to cancer. I still remember the last thing I said to her in person before I drove the 10 hours back home to my house and then she died two weeks later with me 700 miles away. My brother in law stopped breathing in the middle of the night last April. My sister had to do CPR and call 911. The paramedics got his heart to start but he never woke up and my sister had to end life support. She is super messed up still months later. She is on antidepressants and goes to therapy and had to take a leave of absence from her job. William and Harry telling about their struggles after Diana's death or Kate telling about being unsure as a first time mother lets other people know it's okay to feel the emotions when something happens. They are people and people aren't perfect even royal princes and princesses.

Skippyboo your so right and I have been though the grieving process that never ends it's alway just a breath away. If people don't like it they don't have to watch it It's Will and Harry's choice and everyone else should butt out and mind their own business

I think we are just as entitlted to comment on them when they are public figures as we are on other public figures. how much discussion is there of Harry's romance with Meghan which is mostly culled from the press' brief sightings of them and seems to be an endless "I think they will get married"...
I feel very uncomfortable with the memories that they are choosing to share, presumably about family rows in the past. That's soemthign that they ought to keep private. Even the less contentious memories, are things that can sound odd to an outsider, and are problaby best kept for family and friends..

I think its a very problematic way to think to say to them stop emoting...that is a messed up way to think these days and causes both depression and suicide...so i say be open and share...maybe more men will become like that..

also, they are talking because they want to have the narrative on who she was and be in charge of her legacy and they finally are doing that.

i think diana would have been very proud of both of them!

Noone is stopping them "emoting".. it is "emoting in public" that is problematic and IMO not a good idea for them or for Di's memory.

Ooh, the IRONY... this 'emoting' is front page news, and lead story on EVERY news broadcast today, and [likely] until this anniversary is over.
It's therefore quite tricky to avoid them 'making it my business'.

that's true but if they put something into the public domain, then it is open for comment.

When reading their words I certainly was able to connect due being an half-orphan since 14. Sharing your grief can help you on your way to heal.

It's not about is it a good thing or bad thing for them to "emote" in public. They are commemorating the 20th anniversary of their mother's untimely passing by sharing their most precious and heartfelt memories with everyone. No one should be upset with them for that or wishing they would stop talking.

I totally applaud William and Harry for doing this. Telling their true, reflecting on their memories of a mother they loved so dearly. It can't be cast for them to do this guys. Let's not tear them apart for expressing their thoughts and feelings about their mother.

If it is not easy for them, there's no need for them to do it. They could do a programme about her work and life witout going into stuff that is private.. or things that will possibly open old wounds within the family.

I don't think they are going to open others' old wounds in talking about their own, which have needed to be attended to for twenty years. Plus, as far as this doco is concerned, surely it would be best to watch it first before complaining about it?
