In their first American interview, Prince William and Prince Harry of Wales speak candidly about life as young royals and the 10th anniversary of the death of their mother, Princess Diana, in an exclusive interview with NBC's Matt Lauer.
"There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about it once in the day," says William, 24. "And it has been a long time." According to the princes, tragically losing their mother in a car accident was compounded by the intense public scrutiny she receives - even a decade later. "There was never that sort of peace and quiet for any of us - her face was always splattered on the paper the whole time," says Harry, 22.
Despite all of the pressure, the young men tell Matt they believe their mother would be proud of how they conduct themselves. "I think she'd be happy in the way that we're going about it," says Harry. "Within our private life and within certain other parts of our life we want to be as normal as possible. And yes it's hard -- cause to a certain respect we never will be normal."
But if they were normal, and not princes, what would they be doing? "I'd like to be some sort of heli-pilot, working for the UN ...something like that," William says. "He'd probably sit and play computer games and drink beer (laughs)."
The full interview will air on NBC News' Today and Dateline on June 18.
