Princess Diana’s Easter ski trip saw young Prince Harry ‘frustrated’ – ‘Dig it! ” | Royal | New


The Princess of Wales has taken her two children to Lech, Austria for a skiing holiday, according to Diana’s former protection officer Ken Wharfe. During the trip, Harry and William both took to the slopes well, but the Sussex royal wanted to move faster.

Mr Wharfe said that Harry and William ‘got back to skiing incredibly fast’ and ‘were fearless’, but added that Diana ‘was incredibly good at it’.

Harry, 10, couldn’t wait to ski. Mr Wharfe shared: “I could see that Harry was frustrated with having to follow the ski instructor.

“He just wanted to go fast, so he skied solo up a mountain and ended up in mud and flowers.

“We had to go dig him up! After that, we reminded him to stay with the group.”

Diana took Harry and William on their first ski trip in 1991, flying to Austria.

According to Insider, Diana begged the paparazzi to leave the family alone while they enjoyed their quiet family vacation.

Journalist Katrine Ames, writing for Newsweek in 1997, said Diana would coordinate her schedule to correspond with young princes.

She wrote: “In her official calendar, the princess had all the daily details of the daily life of her sons marked in green ink.

Talk to OK! MagazineMr Wharfe added that Diana often hosts Easter events for the two.

The princess had Easter egg hunts at Highgrove, with William and Harry “running uninhibitedly trying to be the first to find them.”

He added: “Diana was a very active mother and organized the Easter egg hunt, but she involved all the staff in hiding them.

“They had chickens there and I remember someone suggesting hiding some of the eggs in the hen house.”


In 2017, Harry and William recalled how Diana made sure she had fun as children.

In the ITV documentary, “Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy,” which marked the 20th anniversary of Diana’s death, the Duke of Cambridge said her mother was “very informal and really enjoyed the laughs and pleasure”.

He added: “She understood that there was real life outside the palace walls.”

Harry also shared in the documentary: “Good memories, big smiling faces.

“She choked us with love, for sure.”
