Secret Depression Of Kate Middleton's Brother. Who Would've Thought! He's So Handsome

Date January 17, 2019

The young generation of the Windsors has been in the center of attention all the time recently; however, fans of the royal family might also be interested in other relatives. Previously we have told you about Princess Diana's nephew and nieces, the pretty boy Louis and just as gorgeous Kitty Spencer, as well as Lady Amelia, one of the most beautiful girls of the dynasty. Regarding Kate Middleton's side of the family, her sister, Pippa also receives media attention. But there's very little known about the Duchess' brother.

Just a little less than a year ago, James William Middleton celebrated his 31st birthday and, despite some failures in business, is still considered an eligible bachelor. He recieved a fine education and twice gave confectionery a shot, earning prestigious awards. When the young man realized that his enterprises failed his expectations, he started working in the hospitality and entertainment industry with the support of Pippa's husband.

James has some things in common with Queen Elizabeth: he really loves dogs and, judging by his Instagram page, he is engaged in dog breeding.

We also know that he suffered from dyslexia (learning difficulty which can cause reading, writing, and spelling problems) and attention deficit disorder or ADD (hyperactivity, concentration problems, and difficulty attending to instruction). Fairly recently, according to The Daily Mail, he confessed that he had been struggling depression for a long time on his own.

Perhaps, there were many reasons for the illness to develop: from the above-mentioned disorders to frustration connected with the business. Little by little, he started to distance himself from this friends and family, lost interest in his job, and felt an immense loneliness.

I know I’m richly blessed and live a privileged life. But it did not make me immune to depression. It is tricky to describe the condition. It is not merely sadness. It is an illness, a cancer of the mind.

Kate Middleton is famous for her work in the sphere of improving the mental health of the nation, children and youth in particular. It's hard to believe that she overlooked her brother getting depressed. On the other hand, the young man tried hard to keep his state hidden.

Nonetheless, about a year ago, he found the strength within himself to seek professional help. Recently, we have learned that James has said goodbye to his life as a bachelor. His significant other has turned out to be French woman, Alizee Thevenet. She used to live in many different countries and worked as a successful analyst. James had been dating her for about 6 months before introducing her to his family.

Having a noble family and wealth doesn't guarantee that the person isn't left alone with his demons. It takes courage to admit that to yourself and try to change the situation. It seems like James has it, don't you think?
