An organization that honours the late Princess of Wale’s has just received a very heartfelt letter from none other than Diana’s eldest son, Prince William.
The royal reached out to The Diana Award, a charity that honors young people following in Princess Diana's footsteps by making a difference in their communities, amid the coronavirus pandemic. In a sweet letter shared by the organization on Instagram, William reminded them of his and brother Prince Harry's support as they continue their work.
"I wanted to write to send my support and thanks to all the staff, volunteers and supporters of The Diana Award," Prince William wrote. "My brother and I remain appreciative of the work you do to foster, develop and support young people, particularly at this time of uncertainty."
"Whilst you are finding yourselves adapting to new ways of working, there is no doubt that your support for young people, through what will be anxious and unsettling times for many, is as important as ever, he added. "This comes with my very best wishes for good health to you and your families over the coming weeks."
"We’ve received a lovely message from HRH the Duke of Cambridge. Thank you to the Duke and the Duke of Sussex for all your support over the years and now in this uncertain time," The Diana Award charity captioned their Instagram post, which was accompanied by photos of Prince William and Prince Harry with honorees over the years. "We’re incredibly grateful for all of our supporters (including you reading this right now) for making it possible for us to help young people change the world. We hope this brightens your day - it certainly did ours!"
In November, Prince William welcomed 20 Diana Award honorees from around the world to his Kensington Palace home in London — and told them that his late mother "would be proud of you."
