In this taping made for Apple, William, 39, second in line to the British throne, says he himself would love to start the week on AC/DC hard rock band “Thunderstruck”: “It’s not.” There’s nothing better, on a Monday morning, when you’re a little muddy after the weekend and trying to get back to the daily grind of the week.
He described it as “a real family moment” when his mother, Princess Diana, sang “aloud” to an “best” American rock track to lighten the mood by bringing him and his little brother back. Harry, at their boarding school. They were sometimes joined by the policeman who was accompanying them.
Once I reached the school gates, “it was a return to reality,” he continues. “Because before you get lost in the songs, you want to replay it, just to preserve that family moment. And when I listen to it now,[this song]takes me back to those car trips and brings back so many memories of my mother.”
Queen Elizabeth II’s grandson explains that his three children inherited the same love of music, with Shakira’s song “Waka Waka” preferred.
“Charlotte in particular is running around the kitchen, wearing her own clothes and ballerina stuff. She’s gone completely crazy with Louis who’s following her trying to do the same thing,” he explains. and “Most of the morning there is a big argument between Charlotte and George about which song to listen to.”
In this podcast, which will be available for free on Monday and the proceeds will be donated to the prince’s charities, William also says Princess Diana took him to a homeless shelter to show him the “real world” “outside the palace walls”.
He also describes how his job as an ambulance and helicopter pilot, which he held for two years until 2017, “affected him” as he brought home “shock and grief”.
