King Charles III is haunted to walk Prince William and Prince Harry behind Diana’s coffin: he deeply ‘regrets’ it

A haunting decision. King Charles III deeply regrets that his sons Prince William and Prince Harry went behind Princess Diana’s coffin at her funeral in 1997 after learning how much it had affected them. “I think it haunts him because it haunts them, and they’ve talked about it,” Christopher Andersen exclusively told Us Weekly on Tuesday, Nov. 1, while discussing his upcoming biography, The King: The Life of Charles III. . “I wrote that I believe it is a form of PTSD.” The author added that while researching the book, which was released on November 8, he learned the Duke of Sussex, 38, had found it a “trigger” to occasionally travel to London. “[He said] it reminds him of that day when he had to walk behind the coffin, and they were more or less intimidated to do so by the palace — by the men in gray who really run the palace, the people Diana was complaining about,” Andersen says. . “[Charles, Earl Spencer], Diana’s brother … also said he felt he was cheated on and regretted it. He said it was like walking through a tunnel of grief.’Prince William and Prince Harry.

And Charles, I think, understands that to some extent he was responsible for the fact that they had to suffer [that]. “William and Harry – who were 15 and 12 respectively when Diana died in August 1997 following a car accident in Paris – have been open about the loss of their mother. “Slowly you try to rebuild your life , you try to understand what happened. I have also been busy to get you through this initial shock phase. We’re talking maybe five to seven years later,” William explained during the HBO documentary Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy in 2017. “You know, there were times when you looked up to someone. one or something for strength and I really felt that she was there for me.” Harry, for his part, reflects on how difficult it was for him to participate in the funeral procession when he was a pre-teen: “My mother had just died, and I had to walk for a long time behind her coffin, surrounded by thousands of people watching me while millions of others were doing it on TV,” the Invictus Games founder told Newsweek in June 2017. “I don’t think a child should be asked to do this, under any circumstances. I don’t think that would happen today.” King Charles III.

I don’t think either of these two could have coped if they had been somewhere else. With the report by Christina Garibaldi
