Five-word consolation from King Charles to Harry when Diana died


King Charles announced the death of Princess Diana to his two sons.

The monarch’s youngest son, Prince Harry, in his memoir ‘Spare’ recalled how his father walked into the room to reveal his ‘mum didn’t survive’.

Recalling his feelings at the time, Harry writes: “These phrases stick in my mind like darts in a board. He said it like that, I’m sure. She did not succeed. And then everything seemed to stop. It is not fair. Not seemed. Nothing at all seemed. Everything has stopped distinctly, certainly, irrevocably. Nothing I said to him then remains in my memory. It’s possible that I didn’t say anything. What I remember with surprising clarity is that I didn’t cry. Not a tear,” Harry notes in his “Spare” memoir.

“Dad didn’t kiss me. He wasn’t good at showing his emotions under normal circumstances, how could he be expected to show them in such a crisis? But his hand fell once again on my knee and he said: I’ll be fine,” Harry recalled.

Diana died in a car accident in Paris with her boyfriend Dodi Al-Fayed in 1997.
