The funny way Princess Diana used to calm William and Harry's nerves while taking them to school
Nervousness to go to school is common in children, especially if you are the heir to the British throne. Princess Diana used a special trick to appease her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry: playing Tina Turner in very high volume.
In an interview for Apple Fitness's Time to Walk series, William revealed that his mother would put Turner's "The Best" while taking her and Harry to school.
"My mother, she would travel by car singing out loud," he said. Diana would even take over the team. "Sometimes we would get the policeman in the car; occasionally he would also sing. We would sing and listen to music up to the school gates where we would go down. ”
It is just the latest example of how the Princess of Wales tried to give her children a normal childhood. She often took Harry and William to McDonald's. She insisted that they enter school at a young age instead of being taught by a governess. And most importantly, she took them to shelters and hospitals for the homeless: "I want them to understand people's emotions, people's insecurities, people's worries and people's hopes and dreams," she told the BBC.
So perhaps it is no surprise that Prince William and Kate Middleton are taking a page from Princess Diana's playbook when it comes to their children. Every morning, they set music for their children, George, Charlotte and Louis. Their favorite? "Waka Waka" by Shakira. "Charlotte, in particular, runs around the kitchen with her dresses, ballet stuff and everything," William said. "She goes completely crazy with Louis following her and trying to do the same."
