Princess Diana's nieces remember their 'incredibly warm and loving' aunt

PRINCESS Diana’s nieces have shared their memories of her, saying she was “incredibly warm, maternal and loving”.

Twins Lady Amelia and Lady Eliza Spencer talk about the Princess of Wales in society bible Tatler.

Earl Spencer’s 28-year-old daughters describe her as a loving aunt who had a “talent for reading children’s hearts”.

The girls spent their early years at the family home at ­Althorp, Diana’s final resting place, before moving to South Africa.

Eliza said: “We always just knew her as our aunt.

"Growing up in South Africa, I really had very little idea of how significant she was in the world until I was much older.”

She described Diana as “incredibly warm, maternal and loving”, adding: “She always made an effort to connect with us as children and had a talent for reading children’s hearts.”

The twins also said that Diana once stepped in to help when they were pursued by a photographer in Cape Town.


Eliza said: “It could have been quite terrifying for us, being so young and not understanding what was happening.

"But she turned it into a game of who could get back to the car first

"It was amazing how she protected us in a way that made us feel safe and not frightened. We had no idea what she was doing at the time.

“As a child, I realised the enormity of the loss for my father and family.

"It was only later that I came to understand the significance of the loss of her as a figure in the world.”
