The couple split in 1992, however, it took them four years to finalize their divorce. That was a painful experience for Diana and for her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, who were young teens then.

The saddest outcome of the final verdict was Diana's loss of her royal titles. She would lose “Her Royal Highness” and that meant breaking all her connections to the royal family, her sons included.

She was the mother of the successor to the throne, yet, without the royal title, she would have to curtsey before her sons and ex-husband, Prince Charles.

According to The New York Times, the Queen herself would have allowed Diana to hold on to her titles after the divorce, but Prince Charles was unyielding in his decision.

Prince William, who was 14 at that time, took the divorce as a personal matter. He loved his mother dearly and wanted to help her deal with the sadness and frustration.

One night, talking to his mom, Prince William made a promise: “Don't worry, mummy. I will give it back to you one day when I am king.”

For a mother, there is nothing more valuable than her son’s support and unconditional love!

Sadly, Lady Di died in the car crash a year later, but no matter what, her sons carry on performing her duties, honoring the memory as queen of their hearts!
