Speaking about how he and William walked behind Princess Diana's coffin at the funeral that was watched by millions worldwide, Harry said, "When my mum was taken away from me at the age of 12, just before my 13th birthday, I didn't want the life. Sharing the grief of my mother's death with the world.

"For me, the thing I remember the most was the sound of the horses' hooves going along The Mall, the red brick road.

"By this point both of us were in shock. It was like I was outside of my body and just walking along doing what was expected of me.

"Showing one-tenth of the emotion that everybody else was showing. You know, this is my mum. You never even met her."
