Among the many legacies Princess Diana left behind, the seemingly “average” way in which she raised her privileged sons William and Harry stands as one of the most intriguing and relatable.

Nearly three decades after Diana’s unexpected death, Prince William, 32, and his wife Kate, 33, are bringing up their 20-month-old son George with a normalcy that speaks to the values that William’s mother held dear – even as she looked toward the throne of England.

This Sunday, as revealed in an exclusive clip, Diana’s brother Charles Spencer sits down with Oprah Winfrey to discuss the reality, and the challenge, of raising a royal child.

“You want them to find their own way,” says Spencer, 50, “and you don’t want to disable them by giving them too much.”

Continues Spencer, “I always tell my children, ‘You’ve got to find your own way – and only then will you find true happiness.’ ”

Oprah: Where Are They Now? airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on OWN.
