LONDON — Prince William has recalled a recurring memory of his mother, Princess Diana, as his favorite pop song by Tina Turner.
William, 37, met with his old schoolmates and teachers at St. Thomas More Catholic Primary School in Berkshire, central England, for a special visit on Friday.
While there, William was asked about favorite memories of his time at the school, including his favorite song.
“It was always Tina Turner, her version of ‘Proud Mary,’” he told the press.

William says Turner was a popular choice among his classmates.
“She was a very recognizable face back then and, obviously, we were all hit by it when Diana died and we all thought the country would be better without her,” he said.
“[I am still] so grateful that I had a good connection with her at school, because I would have really struggled had I not had that connection and I’d still be so angry at my mother,” he added.
