Harry reveals how his father Charles sat on the edge of the bed.

He says Charles said, “Honey, Mummy was in a car accident.

“There were complications. Mommy was hurt pretty badly and taken to the hospital, darling.

“He used to call me ‘darling boy,’ but he said it quite a lot now. His voice was soft. He was in shock it seemed.”

He continues: “With a head injury. You tried, darling. I’m afraid she didn’t make it.”

Harry also revealed that Charles “didn’t hug him” but put his hand on his knee and said “it’ll be fine”.

Harry, then just 12, also spoke openly about his struggles to process the death of his mother because he believed she was just “hiding”.

He writes how that day – Sunday 31st August – they went to Crathie Kirk church in Balmoral.

When they returned, people had gathered in the streets and Harry and the family stepped out. He says he “reached my father’s hand for comfort” at that moment.

Harry goes on to describe the agony that went on in his head as he confronted the fact that his mother had left.

He says how he thought she “staged an accident as a distraction and ran away,” describing it as a “trick so she can get a clean start.”

Harry writes: “At this moment she is no doubt renting an apartment in Paris or arranging fresh flowers in her secretly bought log cabin somewhere high in the Swiss Alps.

“Soon, soon she will send for me and Willy. It’s all so obvious! Why haven’t I seen it before? Mom is not dead! She hides!”

He describes the days after her death, when he and William were “kept off television” and “no one said anything.”

He added: “If someone spoke about something, I didn’t hear them.

“The only voice I heard was the one pounding in my head, arguing with itself: She’s gone. No, she’s hiding. She’s dead. No, she’s playing dead.”

“SHE HIDES”

Harry said even when his aunt Sarah gave him “proof” that she was dead by giving him a lock of his mother’s hair – he still thought it couldn’t be true.

He writes how the brothers were presented with two tiny blue boxes and asked to open them and see what was inside. Unsure what it was, Harry said his aunt told him it was Diana’s hair.

“Aunt Sarah explained that she cut off two locks of hair from Mummy’s head in Paris,” writes Harry.

“So there it was. prove. She’s really gone.

“But then immediately came the reassuring doubt, the life-saving uncertainty: No, it could all be hair.

“Mom, her beautiful blonde hair intact, was out there somewhere.

“I would know if she wasn’t. My body would know. My heart would know. And nobody knows anything like that. Both were just as full of love for her as ever.”

Elsewhere, Harry describes how, days after his mother’s death, they had to greet crowds paying their respects to his mother outside Kensington Palace.

And he shares how, even though he felt devastated, he couldn’t cry.

He writes about the tour: “Why did all these people cry when I wasn’t – and didn’t have?

“I wanted to cry and I tried because Mummy’s life was so sad that she felt the need to disappear to make up this massive charade. But I couldn’t squeeze out a drop.

“Perhaps I had learned too well, absorbed the family ethos too deeply, that crying was not an option — ever.”

Harry also claims that he and William were kept from pleading together for the reopening of an investigation into Diana’s death.

He wrote: “First of all, the summary statement that our mother’s driver was drunk and was therefore the sole cause of the accident. It was simple and absurd. Even if the man had been drinking, even if he had been drunk, he would have had no problem driving through such a short tunnel.

“Unless paparazzi followed him and blinded him. Why did those paparazzi get off lightly? Why weren’t they in jail? Who sent her? And why weren’t these people in jail?

“What other reason could there be other than corruption and cover-ups being the order of the day?

“We agreed on all of these issues and also on what to do next. We would make a statement and together call for the investigation to be reopened.

“We could call a press conference. Those who made the decision advised us against it.”
