One of the saddest things about Princess Diana's premature death is the fact she never got to meet her grandkids.

Every royal fan around the world would easily agree that there is no role Di would have loved more than the role of being a grandmother.

While Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will never get to meet their Nana, Princess Di's best friend (and Prince George's godmother) has revealed the way she is keeping Diana's spirit alive.

Speaking on the How To Fail With Elizabeth Day podcast, Julia revealed how she is showing him his grandmother's sense of humour.

"I do to George what [Diana] did to us, which is give impossible toys that are really noisy and take a lot of making," she said of celebrating the little royal's birthdays.

"I come in slightly tipped by the size of the present that William then has to spend days putting together. And then put all the machinery together, and it makes awful tooting noises and lights flashing and all of that."

"That makes me laugh, and it makes George laugh," she added.

Julia added that Prince George is "amazing" - "He's funny and feisty and cheeky and God she [Diana] would have loved him so much," she said. "That is heartbreaking for all of them."

The podcast was released on July 1, what would have been Princess Diana's 59th birthday, and Samuel said her favorite memory of the royal was "her laugh."

"She had an absolutely fantastic laugh. It was a sort of giggle and it was cheeky and it kind of lit up the room," Samuel said, getting emotional. "And also she was a fantastic hugger."
