Prince Harry Claims He’d Be Closer to William if Mom Diana Were Alive

During the release of his memoir, Spare, the Duke of Suss*x made an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Once again, Prince Harry is discussing his relationship with his brother, Prince William.

On Tuesday’s edition of The Late Show, the Duke of Suss*x spoke with Stephen Colbert about his ground-breaking book, Spare, which had just been published. Harry said that things may have been different if their mother, Princess Diana, had lived to be older than 36 when she passed away.

“If your mother were still alive, do you ever think about how she might handle this moment?” About the friction between him and the Prince of Wales, Colbert questioned Harry.

“We wouldn’t have got to this moment,” Harry replied. “It’s impossible to say where we would be now — where those relationships would be now — but there is no way that the distance between my brother and I would be the same.”

Colbert questioned Harry about whether or not he asks his mother for advice or keeps in mind what she may have given him. Harry responded, “I’ve said quite a lot recently in different interviews that I’ve really felt my mom’s presence, especially in the last couple of years. And I detail in the book my brother and I talking at her grave and how he felt as though she had been with him for a long period and helped set him up with life and that he felt she was now moving over to me.”

Harry added, “And I have felt her more in the last two years than I have in the last 30.”

Colbert then questioned Harry on how it felt to be 38 years old, two years older than Diana was when she passed away on August 31, 1997, in a vehicle accident in Paris.

“Well, she died at 36, and I was 36 when this all kicked off,” Harry said, referencing when he and his wife, Meghan Markle, decided to make a significant change and distance themselves from the British monarchy. “January 2020 was when my wife and I said, ‘Enough, we can’t cope. We can’t deal with this. We need to carve out something different.’ So that was an interesting overlap of time.”

The author of Spare Harry claimed to Colbert that he would continue to think Diana was alive for years after his mother’s passing.

“For many years, I had dreams. I was convinced that she was still alive. I mean, I was 12 years old,” Harry said. “I could not face the reality that she was gone.”

Harry responded when asked where he believed she was: “Hiding. Taking a break, plotting, planning, and then coming to get me and William to get us out of there because it was unbearable for her.”

When Colbert pointed out that Harry also “removed” himself from a “toxic situation,” the royal responded: “Yeah. And I’m glad … Not before trying to make it work. We tried. And we’re still trying.”

Harry stated that he hasn’t lately communicated with either his older brother, William or his father, King Charles III, in another recent interview with Anderson Cooper before the release of Spare.

Harry responded, “A while,” when Cooper questioned how long it had been since the siblings had spoken.

“Do you speak to your dad?” Cooper followed.

“We aren’t — we haven’t spoken for quite a while,” Harry said. “Um, no, not recently.”

Prince Harry acknowledged the split could be repaired but added that “the ball is very much in their court” because he does not envision returning to the royal family as a full-time employee.

The Late Show’s participation by Prince Harry marks the fourth television interview related to the publication of Spare. He made an appearance on Sunday’s 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper, chatted with ITV’s Tom Bradby for an interview that aired on Sunday in the UK, and made an appearance with Michael Strahan on Monday’s episode of Good Morning America.

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Harry revealed more about “the raw account” he delivers in his forthcoming book amid days of intense response to his ground-breaking book.

“I don’t want to tell anyone what to think of it, including my family,” he said. “This book and its truths are, in many ways a continuation of my mental health journey. It’s a raw account of my life — the good, the bad and everything in between.”

“My hope has been to turn my pain into purpose, so if sharing my experience makes a positive difference in someone’s life, well, I can’t think of anything more rewarding than that!” he said.
