Prince William recalls rare childhood memory of Diana listening to Tina Turner music
Prince William recalled listening to Tina Turner with Princess Diana, Prince Harry on their way to the school
Prince William remembered the late music icon Tine Turner in a heartfelt mention of his childhood memories with late mother Princess Diana in a resurfaced interview.
The Princes of Wales, 40, recalled a rare memory of listening to Turner, who passed away on Wednesday at the age of 83, with his mother and brother Prince Harry.
Prince William, during an appearance on Apple fitness podcast Time to Walk back in 2021, named Turner’s 1989 classic number Simply the Best as his favorite record.
William, who is next in line to the throne, stated at the time that the song took him back to his childhood and shared a special moment he had with Diana and Harry, now 38, when they would drive to school.
“And one of the songs I massively remember and has stuck with me all this time, and I still, to this day, still quite enjoy secretly, is Tina Turner’s ‘The Best’ because sitting in the backseat, singing away, it felt like a real family moment,” he said.
William reminisced, “and my mother, she’d be driving along, singing at the top of her voice. And we’d even get the policeman in the car, he’d be occasionally singing along as well.”
“You’d be singing and listening to the music right the way out into the gates of school when they dropped you off. When I listen to it now, it takes me back to those car rides and brings back lots of memories of my mother,” the father-of-three added.
Tina Turner, who was known as the queen of rock ‘n’ roll, died peacefully at her home in Küsnacht, Switzerland.
