"This is the first time that the two of us have ever spoken about her as a mother,” 32-year-old Harry shares in a promo clip for the project, calling her "one of the naughtiest parents."

"She was very informal and really enjoyed the laughter and the fun," 35-year-old William adds. "She understood that there was a real life outside of Palace walls."

"She was our mum. She still is our mum. And of course, as a son I would say this, she was the best mum in the world,” Harry continues. "She smothered us with love, that’s for sure."
