William, Duke of Cambridge, has opened up about his grief over the death of his mother, Princess Diana, during one of his Royal visits in the United Kingdom. Over the past year, William and his wife Kate have focused their attention on providing support and assistance to vulnerable teenagers and children.
During a recent visit to a hospice in the UK, William showed great empathy for a young boy going through the pain of losing his mother. Ben is only 14 years of age and had bravely spoken of his pain, having lost his mother last year. Knowing all too well the grief he must be experiencing, William gently placed his hand on the shoulder of the boy and said: “Time makes it easier.”
As we all remember William was only a child at the time his mother, Princess Diana, tragically passed away following a car crash involving the paparazzi in 1997. However it is clear that the loss still affects him to this day.
“I know how you feel. I still miss my mother every day and it’s 20 years after she died,” he said, according to The Telegraph.
