William, 35, speaks candidly about his late mother in the upcoming ITV and HBO documentary, Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, in which he reveals he felt Diana’s presence during the 2011 wedding.
“When it came to the wedding, I did really feel that she was there,” he says. “You know, there was times when you look to someone or something for strength and I very much felt she was there for me.”
Along with William, 32-year-old Prince Harry opens up about his late mother in the special which airs ahead of the 20th anniversary of Diana’s death in a Paris car crash. The royals have expressed how difficult it is to talk about the death, and William has even vowed, “We won’t speak as openly and as publicly about her again.”
“It’s one thing doing a documentary like this and it’s another thing standing front of all of you guys and explaining about something very personal to you,” he said during a recent discussion with reporters — including PEOPLE — at Kensington Palace.
“Nevertheless, I think it’s very important that I’m here to do that.”
The princes, who were 15 and 12 respectively when Diana died, also expressed their regret over their last conversations with their mother.
“If I’d known that that was the last time I was going to speak to my mother the things that I would – the things I would have said to her,” Harry says in the documentary. The brothers last spoke to Diana in a telephone call while they stayed in Balmoral with their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, and father Prince Charles.
Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy will air Monday, August 31, at 10 p.m. on HBO in the U.S. and 9 p.m. in the U.K. on ITV.
The show is one of several commemorations of the Princess in print and on film. PEOPLE and ABC have partnered in a two-night television event The Story of Diana, airing on Aug. 9 and 10 at 9 p.m. ET.

What better way to ring in your 25th year than with the people you love most?
Selena Gomez celebrated her milestone birthday in an intimate, low-key party with friends over the weekend, in a soirée with balloons, a sweet cake, and a few pals.
“Thank you for all of my bday love. I couldn’t be more blessed,” the “Bad Liar” singer captioned an Instagram photo of herself perched on a kitchen counter in a pair of sweats.
“A lot of you don’t realize how much you mean to me. I. Love. You. –think 25 is going to be epic. xo.”
In another photo, Gomez showed her friends with their phones out and ready to snap photos as the singer looked down at her birthday cake. She captioned the picture simply: “My people.”
Gomez’s boyfriend the Weeknd did not appear to be at the party as he is currently on tour in Paris.
Gomez’s big day was on Saturday, as fans rushed to the star’s social media to wish her a happy birthday, Gomez headed to Twitter with a message of her own:
“Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes!” she wrote alongside a link to the Alliance for Lupus Research. “Asked my family and friends to make a donation – if you want to join.”
Although Gomez’s best gal pal, Taylor Swift, stayed silent on social media on Saturday, the “Bad Blood” singer sent an early birthday shout out to Gomez earlier this month.

Roddick revealed that his wife Decker, 30, is pregnant with their second child — a daughter — when he gave an acceptance speech at the International Tennis Hall of Fame Class of 2017 ceremony in Newport, Rhode Island, on Saturday.
“My wife Brooklyn, most people don’t know you’re kind of nuts,” the 34-year-old said. “You’re my partner in crime. In a life full of good fortune, being around you has been by far the luckiest part. I’m a better human for us having met 10 years ago.
“Brook, I don’t know how you juggle it all,” he continued. “I see it every day and it still doesn’t make any sense to me. You’re an unreal artist, businesswoman, mother, wife, sister and friend. You hear a lot of guys who find it very tough to walk away from professional sports. You’re the reason why my personal transition into a quasi-normal, everyday life has been gratifying and full. Hank will someday realize how lucky he is. Our daughter that’s coming will also realize she has the best mother on earth. Simply, thank you for being you.”
