Inside Princess Charlotte's Heartbreaking Note To Princess Diana

The United Kingdom celebrated their nation's Mother's Day over the weekend of March 14, 2021, and for Prince William's family, that meant commemorating his late mother Princess Diana. The former Princess of Wales tragically died after a car crash in Paris in August 1997 at the age of 36.

The royal family has plans to install a statue of the late princess on what would have been her 60th birthday in July 2021. The plans for the statue were announced in 2017, 20 years after her death, according to People. "The Princes hope that the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on their mother's life and her legacy," read a statement from Kensington Palace.

Over the U.K.'s Mother's Day holiday, the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, chose to send flowers to his mother's grave to honor the princess' legacy, as per People, while back at Kensington Palace, Prince William's children wrote sweet letters to their late grandmother.

Prince William's kids send letters to Diana each year

Kensington Palace shared with the world the personal letters written by Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis (the children of the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William) to their grandmother Princess Diana for Mother's Day.

In an Instagram post, the palace acknowledged, "For those experiencing bereavement, today may be particularly challenging" and revealed that, "each year on Mother's Day, George, Charlotte and Louis make cards remembering their Granny, Diana, for William."

In Prince George's letter, the future king, 7, wished his grandmother, whom he called "Granny Diana," a "Happy happy Mothers Day," adding, "I love you very much and think of you always. Sending lots of love from George."

However, it was Princess Charlotte's letter that really broke hearts. The 5-year-old princess colored in a pink card with a large heart and butterflies. Her note read, "Dear Granny Diana, I am thinking of you on Mother's Day. I love you very much. Papa is missing you. Lots of love Charlotte."

Prince Louis, 2, seemed to have finger-painted his own card.

As the royal family attempts to reconcile their family and royal legacy after the bombshell interview given by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle about the experiences they had inside the palace, fans saw the note from the young princess as incredibly poignant and timely.
