Speaking about the royal brothers’ recent comments about the late Princess Diana, he said: “I found it difficult to watch

Prince William
Presenter Martin Lewis has told of his admiration for Prince William and Prince Harry in choosing to speak publicly about the death of their mother, as he admitted his struggle to talk about his own similar experience. The money and mental health campaigner said he still finds it difficult to come to terms with losing his own mother in a car crash when he was a child. Speaking about the royal brothers’ recent comments about the late Princess Diana, he said: “I found it difficult to watch. “I was 12 when I lost my mum in a car accident, like Prince Harry, and his bravery in being able to talk about it is something I cannot applaud enough.” A patron of children’s bereavement charity Grief Encounter, he continued: “I almost said no to becoming a patron because I would have to

Prince Harry
Prince Harry shared his softer side when he comforted two children who had just lost their mother last year. According to The Telegraph, Harry was at a rugby match between the Royal Navy and Army when he met with 11-year-old Emily and 13-year-old Isaac Briggs during the game’s halftime. Emily and Isaac reportedly lost their mother, Kim, last year after she was struck by a cyclist while on her lunch break. “He just told us everything will be OK. Even though everything seems really bad at the moment, it will get better,” Emily said of the meeting. She added that it was “very nice” to meet him. “We talked about the cadets, we talked about rugby, about losing parents. He was the same age I was, and [it happened] in kind of a similar way,” Isaac said, adding that he was a “normal g

Duchess Catherine
Kate Middleton is often seen (and wondered over) but seldom heard. But today is one of those rare, precious times when the Duchess of Cambridge is not only speaking on camera, but speaking at length. In a new video for the British mental health organization Heads Together (and capping off a week of Prince William and Prince Harry advocating for the cause ahead of the London Marathon this weekend), Kate, Prince William, and Prince Harry sit on what appears to be a park bench at Kensington Palace and have a shockingly deep, roughly 6-minute conversation about their emotions, parenting, and Princess Diana’s death. It may be closest thing we’ll ever get to a royal reality show—and the most we’ve ever heard Kate Middleton speak at a stretch. In a casual striped tee—and an impeccable Pant
