I want you to know, on behalf of all Mums everywhere, that your mum was with you on your special day.
For every single second of it.
Don’t ask me how I know… don’t ask me for science or proof. I can’t give you any of that.
I just know.
You see, I have 2 little boys.
I understand perfectly well how much love Princess Diana had for you and your big brother. So much so in fact, that using that word doesn’t even seem to do it justice. It’s more than love.
It’s other-worldly. It transcends everything. It is eternal and nothing, not even death can put a stop to it.
Oh yes, she was there alright.
I also believe, quite strongly, that your Mum worried about you the most.
Don’t get me wrong, I am sure, like the rest of the mothering population, she worried endlessly day and night about you both. But I really do think it would have have been you that gave her that little bit of extra fear in her heart.
Because Harry, you have that spark. And you were born into a world that likes uniformity, acquiescence and regime. Spark doesn’t fare very well in such situations.
You, my boy, have fire in your soul and I am willing to bet my last dollar that your Mum both admired that – with an overwhelming sense of pride – and feared for you at the same time.
And yet, here you are ‘settling down’ – with just the right amount of individuality, spark and fire to put a smile on her face and endless warmth in her heart – wherever she may be.
You did good.
And a nation – no a world full of mothers – watched you, showering your union with love. I hope you can feel that. You deserve it.
No little boy should know the pain of losing his Mummy – and what a mummy she must have been.
We were with you.
We are all with you.
On behalf of every mum everywhere – we wish you all the happiness and love this life can deliver.
Diana, you did good. You can rest easy now, wherever you may be.
He is doing just fine.
