Prince William shares touching song that reminds him of late mum Princess Diana

Prince William has fondly recalled his mother, Princess Diana, singing a Tina Turner song at the "top of her voice" while driving him and Prince Harry to school.

Speaking during a new Apple Fitness+ podcast, Time to Walk, the 36 year old royal was heard breaking down into tears as he revealed that icon Tina's hit single The Best brought back treasured memories with his late mother.

William, who recently spoke about "managing mental health", said that Diana would belt out the tune to ease her brood's "anxiety of going back to school."

Walking the grounds of the Queen's Sandringham estate, the father of three said: "One of the songs I massively remember and has stuck with me all this time, and I to this day still quite enjoy secretly, is Tina Turner's The Best, because sitting in the back seat, singing away, it felt like a real family moment."


"My mother, she'd be driving along singing at the top of her voice. We'd even get the policeman in the car, he'd occasionally be singing along as well," he continued in the interview, which will be available on Apple Music Monday.

"We'd be singing and listening to the music right the way up to the gates at school where they dropped you off."

William, who was only 15 when his mother passed away, went on to admit that he still "secretly" enjoys the 1989 classic.

Discussing his love for music further, William admitted that he relies on rock band AC/DC to get him "back into the grind of the week" every morning.


William said their music always "woke him up" and "put him in the best mood possible" to "take on anything and anyone".

While William rocks out, his children Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, are fans of Shakira's song Waka Waka.

He noted that there was "a lot of hip movements and dressing up" in the house with little Louis running around his sister Charlotte and copying what she does.

As well as the family's love for music, during the interview, William also discusses singing on stage with Taylor Swift and Jon Bon Jovi.

He also touched upon "being out of his comfort zone" while working as an air ambulance pilot.
