When Princess Diana passed away, Prince William was only a 15-year-old boy, and he couldn’t imagine his life without his mother. His brother Harry was even younger when he lost a mom.

Prince William has recently revealed that losing Diana was like no other pain, and it affected his work as an air ambulance pilot. While at work, he confronted loss on a daily basis, and it was a rather hard and challenging experience.

That’s quite a burden to carry and feel.

Prince William discussed it within the new BBC documentary, A Royal Team Talk: Tackling Mental Health. By the way, the problem of mental health became one of the key points in his public activity.

When presenter Dan Walker asked Prince William about the importance of discussing the grief, his answer was rather straightforward.

I think when you are bereaved at a very young age... you feel pain like no other pain. And you know that in your life it’s going to be very difficult to come across something that’s going to be an even worse pain than that.

In 2017, Prince William opened up on how he misses Diana, claiming that only now he feels able to talk about her death.

I would like to have had her advice. I would love her to have met Catherine and to have seen the children grow up.

Prince William’s life will never be the same after the loss of his loving mother. But luckily, he feels the support of the family members, who are always ready to share his grief.
