article imagePrince William and Prince Harry will discuss Princess Diana on US TV

By Janice Ambrose     Jun 12, 2007 in World
Princes William and Harry have spoken at length about the death of their mother, Princess Diana, in an interview to be broadcast on American television. Prince Harry said the decade since her death had passed "really slowly."
He added, that whatever happened in the tunnel....you know, no-one will ever know.
His older brother told the programme,
"It has been a long time. There's not a day goes by I don't think about it."
Prince Harry said,
"The media coverage following the death of Princess Diana, who was killed in a road crash, has made it difficult for them. It was a constant reminder to both of us and everybody else. Therefore I think when you're being reminded about it, it does take a lot longer and it's a lot slower. It's weird because I think when she passed away there was never that time, there was never that sort of lull. There was never that sort of peace and quiet for any of us - the fact that her face was always splattered on the paper the whole time.",
The interviewer Matt Lauer, was told by the brothers, why they were organising a memorial concert to mark the 10th anniversary of their mother's death, and how they will remember her on the day.
Princess Diana's desire was, for her boys to lead as normal a life as possible. Prince Harry thinks she would be happy in the way they are going about it, but slightly unhappy in the way other people were going about it.
They also accept that they have certain responsibilities, but were often being told - 'Look you're not normal so stop trying to be normal.'
In our private lives, and certain parts of our life, we want to be as normal as possible.
Prince William also discussed relationships, saying he came with a lot of "baggage."
"I don't want to be liked by someone just because of who I am. You know, I don't want the sycophantic, you know, people hanging around."
What would the brothers have aspired to be, had they not been royalty.
William, second in line to the throne, said as a child he had wanted to be a policeman, but now would have liked to fly a UN helicopter.
And Harry, who is third in line, said he would have been a charity worker and a safari guide in Africa.
It seems, the boys have inherited a lot of their mothers loving and caring personality.
The NBC News interview will be aired on 18 June.
