Prince William’s Background

HRH Prince William is the elder son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.

William was born on 21 June 1982 at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London.

Princess Diana wanted William, and his younger brother Harry, to lead as normal life as possible and she did her best to give them a sense of fun and freedom.

However Prince William’s childhood was by no means without upset.  His parents divorced while he was still young, and he lost his mother in a tragic car accident, when he was only 15 years old.
