The Duke of Sussex – who is living in America with Meghan Markle after the couple quit royal duties – said Diana’s death in 1997 when he was just 12 had left “a huge hole inside of me”. The book, Hospital by the Hill, tells the story of a young person whose mother died working on the front line at a hospital during the coronavirus crisis.
