Prince William and Prince Harry have spoken of their expresses regret that their last-place gossip with their baby was a “desperately rushed” phone call.

Diana encouraged them to be “naughty” and smuggled them sweets, they said.

It took place while the brothers were having a “very good time” with their cousins at Balmoral, the Queen’s home in Scotland.

“Harry and I were in a frantic hasten to say goodbye, you know ‘see you later’ … if I’d known now plainly what was going to happen, I wouldn’t have been so blas about it and everything else, ” he said.

Prince William says in the interview he remembers what his mother said – but does not discover details of the conversation.

Prince Harry said: “It was her speaking from Paris, I can’t certainly necessarily remember what I said but all I do remember is probably repenting for the rest of my life how short the phone call was.”

Recalling Princess Diana’s sense of humour, Prince Harry said: “Our mother was a total boy through and through.

“When everybody says to me ‘so she was fun, dedicate us an example’ all I can hear is her giggle in my head.”

He contributed: “One of her adage to me was, you know, ‘you can be as naughty as you miss, just don’t get caught’.

“She was one of the naughtiest parents. She would come and watch us play football and, you are familiar, smuggle sugareds into our socks.”

Prince William said his mother was “very informal and certainly experienced the laughter and the fun”.

She could be “sort of the joker”, he lent, and “loved the rudest posters you could imagine”.

He said: “I would be at institution and I’d get a card from my mother. Usually she found something, you are familiar, very embarrassing, you know, a really funny poster, and then sort of wrote very nice stuff inside.

“But I dared not open it in case the educators or anyone else in the class had encountered it.”

He also talked about the “very funny memory” of coming home from academy to find his mother had invited supermodels Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell to their home in Kensington Palace.

“I was likely a 12 or 13 -year-old boy who had posters of them on his wall, ” he told Monday’s documentary, Diana, Our Mom: Her Life and Legacy.

“I travelled shining red, and didn’t know fairly what to say and sort of flub and I visualize pretty much fell down the stairs on the way up. I was completely and altogether awestruck.”

‘Granny Diana’

Earlier this month, the princes listened a service to re-dedicate their mother’s grave at Althorp House in Northamptonshire, on what would have been her 56 th birthday.

Prince Harry said he had only hollered twice for his mother – one of the times was at the funeral service at Althorp in 1997.

“So there’s a lot of heartache that still needs to be let out, ” he said.
