Princess Diana was a mother who loved her sons more than life itself. She wanted to ensure that they lacked for nothing, especially love. To that end, she spent years recording tapes to impart her wisdom to William and Harry. However, two of these recordings were intended for someone else, leaving many speechless.

Princess Diana passed away 26 years ago in a car accident in Paris. She was a global sensation, and the world was at her feet. As people continue to remember the "Queen of Hearts," as she was often called, new secrets about her life keep emerging.

One such secret involves the tapes she left behind. Diana had thought about what she would like to say to the future wives of her beloved sons, Harry and William. She had a premonition that she would not live to see her sons grow up.

"She knew she would die young," quotes OK! Magazine, citing one of Diana's friends. She recorded these tapes to provide comfort to her sons in her absence, humorously referring to herself as a "nagging mom from the afterlife."

Diana's secret tapes for her sons' wives

For five years, Diana Spencer recorded messages for her sons, capturing her voice on cassette tapes. Some of these were dedicated to her future daughters-in-law. According to British tabloids, these tapes have reached their intended recipients: Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton.

The tape addressed to William's wife, Kate, is particularly poignant. Recorded at a time when William began showing interest in the opposite sex, Diana wanted to protect him from the fate of a failed marriage, something she had experienced herself.

"Hello, this is William's mother. Welcome to the family," Diana began. "Prepare for a little chat. We've probably never met, but I wish we had." She continued, "You must be special to be William's wife. To withstand the pressure and constant scrutiny, you both need patience, compromise, understanding, and, of course, love. It's work that both of you must do every day. Learn from the mistakes of William's father and me. Create a relationship that will last."

In closing, she reassured William's beloved, "Please take care of your children. They will have a part of me in them. Let them know that I love them and am always watching over them."

The tapes serve as a touching legacy, offering a glimpse into the thoughtful and caring nature of a mother who left us too soon.
