Prince William on Princess Diana: ‘I Still Miss My Mother Everyday’
Prince William opened up about his mother’s death while comforting a 14-year-old boy who lost his own parent. While visiting a hospice in Luton, England with wife Kate Middleton on Wednesday (August 24, 2016), the 34-year-old revealed he still thinks about Princess Diana almost everyday of his life.
“Time makes it easier,” he told Ben Hines, a teenager whose mom passed away last summer, according to the Daily Mail. “I know how you feel. I still miss my mother every day — and it’s 20 years after she died.”
Admitting that men are not “great sharers” when it comes to their emotions, William made the young boy promise to keep contact with his brothers and father, saying, “Promise me that you will talk to each other.”
Princess Diana died in 1997 after her car had crashed into a pillar in Paris. At the time, William was 15.
During the same visit, Kate, who was head-to-toe in LK Bennett, also shared a touching moment with another child when she was approached with a request for a hug.
“Yes, of course — I love cuddles,” the Duchess of Cambridge said, before giving the boy and his brother hugs.
Earlier that day, William and Kate were seen at Youthscape Centre to chat with youngsters. While touring the building’s kitchen, Kate shared that her eldest child, Prince George, has a tendency of making a mess when he tries to make.
“When I try to do this with George at home, chocolate and the golden syrup goes everywhere,” she quipped. “He makes so much mess. It’s chaos.”
