If Princess Diana’s brother had to use one word to describe how his late sister’s legacy makes him feel, it’d be “incredible.”
Last night, as young people gathered to celebrate Princess Diana’s life and legacy with the presentation of the Diana Award, Charles Spencer, 9th Earl of Spencer and the Princess of Wales’s brother, opened up about how it feels to see Diana’s memory live on more than 20 years after her death.
“It’s so inspiring for them, and also for me actually," Spencer said to People of the ceremony, which brings together young leaders making a positive impact in their community.
He went on to muse, “They get inspiration from Diana and her example. And for me, to see Diana’s name continue like this is fantastic. It’s been over 20 years since she died. Most of the people who are getting awards tonight were not born and a couple are two or three years old—so it’s incredible that her message if that’s not too pompous a word, continues.” It’s not “too pompous,” Charles.
