12 Inspiring Things Princess Diana Said About Motherhood (PHOTOS)

princess dianaAs much as I've enjoyed all the celebrations around the birth of Prince George I can't help wishing that Prince William's mother, Princess Diana, were still alive to witness her beautiful grandson. I think she would have been a spectacular grandmother. I know the legacy of her love lives on through her son. But Prince George also has her words of wisdom. Here are our favorite Princess Di quotes about motherhood -- her thoughts about parenting, and the lessons she sought to pass down to her sons. As a mother myself I found them truly inspiring.

    Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.
