In a normal household, parents usually tell their children getting out of their house to attend the first day of the school to be nice to people at the campus, don’t forget to eat, drink enough and so on. However, the royals technically do not have a lifestyle like ours.
So, unlike many parents across the world, Princess Diana had different instructions for Prince William when he was on his way to attend the first day of his school. William and Prince Harry’s former bodyguard Ken Wharfe revealed that Diana was concerned how the Queen’s grandson would react to the press so she had a quick talk with the boy about it.
“Diana said to him in the car, “When you get to school there are going to be lots of media and lots of photographers, you’ve got to behave yourself. You’re going to get this for the rest of your life,” he told Yahoo’s Royal Box.
The former bodyguard then revealed that William had an extraordinary and hysterical reaction upon seeing the press there. He recalls that when Diana and Prince Charles stepped out of their car with William, William looked at the cameras snapping his every move and confessed he doesn’t like the paparazzi.
“But William turned around and said something which was extraordinary. He said: “Don’t like ‘tographers,” Ken revealed. His dislike for the paparazzi continued as he grew up. The royal family member has tried his best to keep his life as private as possible.
His dislike towards the cameras is evident even on Prince George’s first day at school last year. The Duke of Cambridge chose to invite only a few photographers for his son’s special day. Apart from that, he has also chosen to hire own photographers to capture the newly born royals’ nursery and released them. Prince Louis’ first photos were taken by Kate Middleton.
