Mrs Burnett-Moore told The Telegraph: “I could have walked in with an IED and set it to go off on Thursday.
“I live just 200 metres from the school and myself and lots of neighbours are worried about the security implications as the prince’s presence will make the area a target for attacks.”
The news could help mark a new chapter for the family who have been at the centre of reporting around the anniversary of Princess Diana’s death, that has seen the popularity of Prince Charles dip and led Prince William and Harry to speak out about her death.
“Harry and I were in a desperate rush to say goodbye, you know, ‘see you later’. If I’d known now obviously what was going to happen I wouldn’t have been so blasé about it and everything else. But that phone call sticks in my mind, quite heavily,” Prince William said.
Prince Harry said he struggled to recall what they talked about.
“It was her speaking from Paris. I can’t really necessarily remember what I said, but all I do remember is probably regretting for the rest of my life how short the phone call was,” he said in the show.
“Looking back on it now it’s incredibly hard. I’ll have to sort of deal with that for the rest of my life. Not knowing that was the last time I was going to speak to my mum, how differently that conversation would have panned out if I’d had even the slightest inkling her life was going to be taken that night.”
The announcement led to an outpouring of good wishes online with “royal baby” “Kensington Palace” and “Duchess of Cambridge” trending in the UK.
Prince Harry said it was “fantastic news” and he was “very happy for them”. Clarence House said Prince Charles and Camilla were thrilled, while the UK Prime Minister also tweeted her congratulations.
