Prince William and Harry have admitted that they didn’t speak to each other enough about their feelings following the death of their mother, Princess Diana.
In a new video, which sees the trio discuss the topic of mental health ahead of this week’s London Marathon, which will support their Heads Together campaign,Harry reveals that the pair would avoid the subject as it was too painful.
‘Both of us, we’ve always been open about that we’ve never really talked about it,’ he said.’We’ve never really talked about losing a mum at such a young age.’
And Kate took the opportunity to pay tribute to Diana’s parenting skills, saying it was to her credit that the pair have coped as well as they have.
‘Considering what you boys sadly went through, the trauma that you experienced I think that work that I’ve been doing in early intervention, I think it’s incredible how strong and how you’ve been able to cope really,’ she said. ‘I put that down to your really early years, your childhood experience.’
Kate also opened up about the difficulties of adjusting to motherhood, describing having your first child as ‘such a life changing moment’.
‘Nothing can really prepare you for that. Remember the first few days with little George, you know you have no idea really what you’re doing.
