Princess Diana's time with Dodi Fayed were "lovely family vibes", his half-brother has revealed.
Omar Fayed was not even 10-years-old when Diana and Dodi were tragically killed in a car crash in Paris in August 1997.
The businessman told Tatler that he rebukes all the conspiracy theories he has heard surrounding the couple's death.
Speaking about his childhood encounters with Prince William and Harry, Omar remembers them as being "super delightful".
Mr Fayed said: "I met Princess Diana a few times and Princes William and Harry. They came to my dad's house, too, and were super delightful.
"There were so many stories that came out of that period, but for the people who were in it, it was lovely family vibes."
Mr Fayed described the crash as a tragic event, and does not subscribe to conspiracy theories surrounding it.
His father, former Harrods owner Mohamed Al-Fayed, previously claimed that the couple was assassinated in a plot hatched by MI6 on the orders of the Duke of Edinburgh.
But Mr Fayed said: "Those tragic events are long at peace in my heart and mind.
"We have to be humble enough to accept the mysteriousness. I have seen and heard so many standpoints and it goes on and on."
Dodi's sibling also talked to the magazine about the "gilded prison" of Harrods, having himself begun a new chapter as a tech and space entrepreneur.
Mr Fayed is now the co-founder and CEO of ESTEE (Earth Space Technical Ecosystem Enterprises), which advocates human space exploration and space colonisation.
"I never wanted to be Mr Harrods," he said.
The iconic Harrods department store in London was sold in 2010.

Mr Fayed, who was drafted onto the Harrods board in 2006 at the age of just 19, said: "I could see a huge hole opening up in the pension pot and I advised dad to sell.
"If we hadn't we would have gone under and the next you know there is another Philip Green BHS situation. I think my old man would have gotten more flack than he deserved."
Tatler's January issue is on sale now.
