To celebrate Queen Elizabeth and her Diamond Jubilee, Katie Couric interviewed members of the royal family for an ABC special, The Jubilee Queen With Katie Couric.
Couric and Prince William chat about a variety of things, like his relationship with his grandmother (which we already know is adorable) and his mother’s absence from his wedding. Prince William explains about missing his mother on his big day:
“I sort of prepared myself beforehand so that I was sort of mentally prepared … I didn’t want any wobbly lips or anything going on. It’s the one time since she’s died, where I’ve … I’ve thought to myself it would be fantastic if she was here, and just how sad really for her, more than anything, not being able to see it. I think she … she would have loved the day and I think, hopefully, she’d be very proud of … of us both for the day. I’m just very sad that she’s never going to get a chance to meet Kate.”
Catch the whole interview tonight at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
