Kate Middleton and Prince William took baby George for a weekend trip into the country, but this trip had a purpose. William took his little family to spend the 16th anniversary of his mother's death with Princess Diana's eldest sister, Lady Sarah McCorquodale, according to Entertainment Wise on Sept. 3.
William has stayed close to his mother's family and this weekend he and Kate brought their infant son to meet the relatives on his mum's side of the family. William, who usually remains quiet about his mother and how her death changed his life, had a change of heart about this after becoming the Royal Patron of the Child Bereavement Charity. He felt the need to share this with people who were going through the same thing. The Prince told the group:
"Never being able to say the word "Mummy" again in your life sounds like a small thing. However, for many, including me, it's now really just a word – hollow and evoking only memories."
This is how William feels and it couldn't have been put more heartfelt and elegantly. He stays in touch with Diana's family because besides his brother Harry, this is all he has left of his mom.
William has stayed particularly close to his aunt, Sarah McCorquodale, through the years. Kate, William and the baby were seen boarding a helicopter on the grounds of a country club about six mile from the McCorquodale estate. They were leaving their weekend visit and headed back into London.
