Princes Recall Diana's Paparazzi Pressure
British royals PRINCE WILLIAM and PRINCE HARRY clearly remember the exhausting effect being chased by photographers had on their late mother DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES.
William and Harry were 15 and 12 respectively when Diana died in a 1997 Paris, France car crash while being chased by paparazzi on motorbikes.
In an interview which aired on American TV show Today this morning (18Jun07), the princes recall how being in the public eye took its toll on their mother.
William says, "There was a lot of times that she was very sad because she'd been chased down the street by guys on motorbikes."
Harry adds, "For both of us, it was just so obvious that when she came back from whatever she was doing... it was clear to see the pressure she was under sometimes, depending on where she'd been and what she'd been doing."
