Boys to Men

This was the magic of Princess Diana, a woman burdened by impossible fame yet beloved the world over for her common touch. Nowhere was this more evident than in the way she raised her sons, sharing with them her joyful spirit, showing them the world's beauty and its pain, wishing for them a future filled with love and normalcy. And Will and Harry basked in her affection, as if when they were with her they weren't royals at all but rather just boys and their mum. One time, "William asked, 'Can we go on a bus?' so we all hopped on one and later got on the tube," remembers Wharfe. "Not for a minute did anyone think they'd see the Princess of Wales and her son on the Piccadilly line. But that's what Diana was like."
