Princess Diana was ‘hands-on’ with William and Harry’s Highgrove Easter egg hunts
Ken Wharfe shared Diana worked hard to make sure Harry and William enjoyed the holiday. Royal experts have regularly praised Diana’s parenting, with Andrew Morton stating the Princess was involved in every part of William and Harry’s lives.
Mr Wharfe shared the Princess got “all the staff involved” hiding eggs around Highgrove’s garden for Easter.
Rather than have them run riot inside the royal residence, Diana organised games for her children around the 900-acre garden.
He added: “Diana was very much a hands-on mother and would organize the Easter egg hunt, but she’d get all the staff involved hiding them.
“They had some chickens there and I remember someone suggesting hiding some of the eggs in the coop.”
He shared in his books Diana often planned trips and holidays for her children, including the ski trip and days out to Thorpe Park.
Mr Morton claimed Diana rarely deferred to Charles or the family in decisions about her children.
In 2017, William recalled how Diana made sure he and Harry had fun as children.
In ITV’s documentary, Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, which marked the 20th anniversary of Diana’s death, the Duke of Cambridge said his mother was “very informal and really enjoyed the laughter and the fun”.
He added: “She understood that there was a real life outside of palace walls.”
Harry also shared in the documentary: “Happy memories, big, smiley faces.
“She smothered us with love, that’s for sure.”
