Prince Harry spoke emotionally about his mum 

During the documentary, the two brothers shared several anecdotes about Diana, who was killed in a car crash back in 1997. Harry said: "She would just engulf you and squeeze you as tight as possible. Even talking about it now, I can feel the hugs that she used to give us," adding: "Our mother was a total kid, through and through". William revealed that Diana "had a very cheeky sense of humour," and told an hilarious story about how his mum once had Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford surprise him at Kensington Palace, leaving his totally speechless – especially since he had posters of them on his walls at the time! Prince Harry also spoke about how difficult it was to process her death. He told the interviewer: "The first time I cried was at the funeral. And probably since then, maybe only once. So there's a lot of grief that still needs to be let out."
