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.

These are beautiful. Especially seeing that she really did teach her sons the things she thought were most important. She really lives on in them! You can see they live for their mother, she would be so proud!

#6 really resonates when I think of William and his Duchess.He is sooo protective of her and I know he will do the same for his new little one.His marriage was built on love not on finding a woman who was "tidy" (Dianas' word).

I cried when she said, "I wish all the mothers, fathers, and children out there realize how much I need them and how much I value their support." She led such a sad life, her parents divorced when they were young and her father won custody of all the children, but her step-mother didn't really care for them and neither did the father. Their mother didn't really get to see them much. Then Diana entered a loveless marriage in which she was pushed around by the royal family, all because she had an early crush on Prince Charles. Even if she were smart and intelligent, Charles wouldn't have needed those qualities in her. In any case, I believe she was emotionally intelligent, and that's what's more important than all the geniuses in the world. And then she died at the young age of 36, for what? She's suffered her whole life, and when she finally finds someone to love her, her husband can't stand it that she's found happiness and turns a blind eye to her death. Not only that, he marries Camilla, the rottweiler, and doesn't care for his children's happiness. Prince Harry had to grow up most of his life without a mother. The way Prince Charles behaves, he might as well be born from a petrie dish than a family with love and warmth. I just cry for Princess Diana.

I wish I could like your post kam fung. When I think of Princess Dianna and the legacy she left behind of motherhood, you've only to look at the sons to see the beautiful work she had started....let all us mothers follow those examples.
