1[on baby Prince George Alexander Louis' hair, August 2013] He's got way more than me. Thank God.
2I'm very much the person who doesn't want to rush into anything without really thinking it through. I don't shy away from doing particular events but I do like to go to the ones that I really feel passionately about.
3The last thing I want to do is be mollycoddled or wrapped up in cotton wool, because if I was to join the Army, I would want to go where my men went, and I'd want to do what they did. I would not want to be kept back for being precious, or whatever-that's the last thing I would want.
4She (Diana) understood more than any other Royal that the press can be wooed over if you know how.
5The thing is with me, I look on the brighter side of everything. There's no point being pessimistic or being worried about too many things because frankly life's too short.
6[why he gave Catherine Duchess of Cambridge his mother's engagement ring] She (Princess Diana) can't share in any of the fun and excitement of it all. This was my way of keeping her close to it.
7(about becoming King) I am worried about it, but I don't really think about it too much because there's no point in worrying about things which are not really present yet. It's not that I never want to do it, it's just that I'm reluctant at such a young age to throw myself in at the deep end.
