Despite the fact that Prince Harry has already revealed a lot about his rocky relationship with his brother Prince William while promoting his recently published book, Spare, it appears that he is still not through.
The Duke of Sussex spoke about everything royal with late-night presenter Stephen Colbert on Tuesday’s broadcast of The Late Show. Colbert took the opportunity to question Harry if he thought his present circumstances would be different if his mother, Princess Diana, were still alive today. The interview was packed of many humorous moments (including the revelation that Harry does, in fact, watch The Crown).
“If your mother were still alive, do you ever think about how she might handle this moment?”Colbert asked, referring to the conflict between him and William.
“We wouldn’t have got to this moment,” Harry replied. “It’s impossible to say where we would be now—where those relationships would be now—but there is no way that the distance between my brother and I would be the same.”
Colbert then questioned Harry about if he ever seeks out his mother’s assistance or considers the guidance she may have provided him. “I’ve said quite a lot recently in different interviews that I’ve really felt the presence of my mom, especially in the last couple of years. And I detail in the book my brother and I talking at her grave and how he felt as though she had been with him for a long period of time and helped set him up with life and that he felt she was now moving over to me,” Harry said.
Harry also goes into great detail in Spare about how hard it was to deal with the loss of his mother and how, for many years, he deceived himself into believing she had only gone into hiding to protect herself rather than truly passing away. And he traveled to the same tunnel where she died to find closure on her departure, which occurred when he was only 12 years old.
