Princess Diana looks at her happiest and most relaxed as she poses next to her young children in these amazingly intimate photographs.
The pictures taken by a young Prince William and Prince Harry were taken during a visit by Dianas to Highgrove's close friend and confident Carolyn Bartholomew and son Jack in 1989.
The joyful photos were taken a few years ago before her marriage to Prince Charles failed because of fraudulent allegations.
In a photograph, a delighted Diana looks mischievously in at the camera while wearing a casual pink sweater and white shorts.
The next picture shows William, a seven-year-old, standing between his mother and son he squeezes best friend.
It is believed that they were taken on a camera by Jack's nanny Mary Bruce and had been hidden in a box for over 18 years along with other personal belongings of Mrs. Bruce.
They came out in 2007, after they were left behind by their best friend Isabella Paton's son, Norrie, who then decided to sell them.
He said, "Diana has been depicted so many times, but these are special."
When I visited my mother's house in 1989, I saw the pictures for the first time. Mary was there and showed us.
"I said they were a great souvenir and I would like to have them, she laughed and said," You can have her when I'm gone – when I do not need her anymore. "
During their memorial service, Prince William described her as the "best mother in the world," and this portrait seems to show the unique connection between the prince and her mother.
In One ITV Documentary Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, Harry remembered what a funny mother she was.
He said, "She would come and watch us play football and smuggle sweets into our socks. A total child, through and through. "
