Prince William says losing mum Princess Diana was a ‘pain like no other’

Prince William has said the pain of losing mum Princess Diana was “like no other” but helps him relate to others who have lost loved ones.

In a BBC documentary about mental health, the Duke of Cambridge says: “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 even worse pain than that.

“But it also brings you so close to all those others who have been bereaved.”


William was 15 and brother Harry 12 when Diana died in a Paris car crash in 1997.

During the documentary, the 36-year-old also chats with top footballers about how men should tackle their emotions rather than bottling things up.


During his talk with stars including Gareth Southgate, Thierry Henry and Peter Crouch at Cambridge United’s ground, he agrees that suicide being the biggest cause of death for men under 45 is an “appalling statistic”.

William says: “We’ve got to be able to talk about our emotions. We’re not robots.”

A Right Royal Team Talk is on BBC1, Sunday at 10.30pm.
