Prince Diana, Prince William, and Harry would belt out songs together

In 2021, when Prince William made an appearance on AppleFitness+'s Time to Walk podcast, he revealed many things to the host. But one of the more surprising and wholesome details that came out of the interview was the family's bonding time when the two brothers would be dropped off at their boarding school. He revealed, "When I was younger, Harry and I, we were at boarding school. And my mother used to play all sorts of songs to kind of while away the anxiety of going back to school." 

One of the moments Diana's oldest son remembered that has "stuck with him all this time" was that of Tina Turner's. Willam added, "I still, to this day, still quite enjoy secretly, is Tina Turner's 'The Best' because sitting in the backseat, singing away, it felt like a real family moment." He recalled that the former Princess of Wales would be "driving along, singing at the top of her voice." He continued, "And we'd even get the policeman in the car, he'd be occasionally singing along, as well." However, the reality would sink in for the two brothers, as their car would make its way into the school's doors because until then they'd be "lost in songs."
