The Duke of Cambridge referenced the deeply personal memory during an episode of podcast Time to Walk where Kate Middleton's husband spoke about a variety of things while walking the grounds of the Sandringham Estate.
The song he is referencing? Tina Turner's The Best, a tune he said he still enjoys to this day.
Speaking on the podcast, William – who lost his mother when he was only 15-years-old – recounted how Diana would play the track loudly during the drive back to boarding school after the holidays.
He said that he, Diana and Harry would sign along loudly, and even managed to get the policeman travelling with them to join in.
William said that his mother would play "all sorts of songs" during the drive to help him with his anxieties while away.
The father-of-three continued to talk about Diana in the podcast episode, referencing how she always wanted himself and Harry to understand that "life happens very much outside of Palace walls".
He spoke about how Diana would take them to homeless shelters and encouraged them to hear stories from people less fortunate than them.
During the podcast, William also revealed that music plays a big part in his family's household today – with George and Charlotte often arguing over tracks. Read the full story here.
