THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE

SHOW THEIR TENDER SIDE AS THEY OFFER COMFORT TO OTHERS

AS WILLIAM OPENS UP ABOUT THE MUM HE MISSES EVERY DAY

There was a particularly tender moment last week when the Duke of Cambridge opened up about the sadness he felt as a young boy after losing his mother. His comments are all the more poignant as this year marks the 20th anniversary of the death of his mother Diana, Princess of Wales.

Prince William was visiting Child Bereavement UK’s centre in East London with the Duchess of Cambridge when he sat down to have a chat with nine-year-old Aoife, who lost her father to pancreatic cancer. William told her: “Do you know what happened to me? You know I lost my mummy when I was young, too? I was 15 and my brother was 12. So we lost our mummy when we were young as well.”

Keen to share his experience, he also offered guidance. “Do you speak about your daddy? It’s very important to talk about it; very, very important.”
