William and Harry Set Aside Differences to Honor Princess Diana at the Diana Awards Ceremony
During the 2023 Diana Awards ceremony, Prince William and Prince Harry demonstrated unity and paid tribute to their late mother, Princess Diana.

In separate videos played during the ceremony, the brothers each sent heartfelt messages. At the beginning of the event, Prince William appeared, introduced by former Diana Legacy Award winner Hannah Hodgson.

He praised Hannah and others for their resilience, emphasizing their courage, compassion, and unwavering commitment to improving the lives of others.

William acknowledged the power of young people to challenge the status quo, confront injustice, and inspire meaningful change.

Proudly carrying on his mother’s legacy, he commended the award recipients as torchbearers of hope and inspiration, stating that their accomplishments are a testament to their passion and commitment to creating positive change.

In a separate video played during the ceremony, Prince Harry expressed his mother’s belief in the transformative power of young people. Recognizing their ability to challenge societal norms and advocate for a more inclusive and compassionate society, Prince Harry met with a group of youngsters for one of the organization’s “Conversation for Change” meetings in Los Angeles earlier in the month.

He emphasized that every individual has the ability to contribute to a more equitable world and praised the award recipients for exemplifying this notion. Prince Harry paid tribute to his mother’s unwavering belief in the potential of young people to challenge societal norms and push for a more inclusive and compassionate society. He highlighted that the brilliant award recipients honored that day are proof that change can happen when voices are used collectively.

While William and Harry have had a strained relationship for years, their deep love for their late mother brings them together on this occasion. Notably, they avoided each other at their father’s coronation in May, following a long-running rift stemming from Harry’s move to the United States in 2020.

Since then, the rift has worsened with the release of Harry and Meghan’s content on Netflix and Harry’s upcoming memoir. Some speculate that the late Princess Diana would have been the one to resolve the rift between her sons, as she was an absolutely devoted mother and her sons meant the world to her.

Overall, their participation in the Diana Awards ceremony demonstrated their shared commitment to honoring their mother’s legacy and recognizing the power of young people to make a positive impact in the world.
