It was great to see William today at the Child Bereavement Charity - he is using his painful experience of loosing Diana to help other children who have lost parents. Im sure Diana would have been incredibly proud of him.
His speech about never been able to say "mummy" again was so moving

Yeah really, I see infomercials of those treatments where they take your own hair and re-plant it. Some one should point out them to him. Anyway, that is not what I wanted to discuss, but a quote in the article

"But he often doesn't see that his privileged life comes with some serious responsibilities"

When I read it I went . I know the article is biased, the person saying this is probably not a reliable source, but it made me think. What a *strong* thing to say about the future King of England!.

The world mourned Diana and focused on what they lost, but it was far worse for her sons. They were so young when she died too.It's interesting and sad reading his remarks, but they are truly heartfelt, for even though it's been eleven and a half years since her death, it's pain that obviously never goes away. He's an excellant patron for this charity to have.

It is a pain that fades in it's intensity for most people as they have to get on with living their lives, IMO.

My nephew lost his dad when he was 10 years old; he's 21 now, and he tells me the same thing. The pain doesn't leave, it just morphs and moves to a different spot. He's very serious now with a current girlfriend and speaks to me of marriage to her; he expresses that his children will never meet their grandfather.

Grace, you're right. Until one loses a parent, one cannot imagine the pain. It's a remarkable person who can turn that kind of daily wound into assistance for others, and I applaud the future King in his efforts with this charity.

Very true. I think these are certainly the most personal remarks he's made on losing his mother in 1997.I don't think otherwise there has been much public occasion to speak of it. Obviously, the next generation of the Royal Family ( future children of Prince William and Kate Middleton and in the more distant future, Prince Harry) will be related to Diana, and that's how she really will carry on, in some ways. Eventually most of the main British Royal family will be her of her blood.

Prince William speaks at the St Giles Trust on March 13, 2009 in
Camberwell, London. The Prince meets clients, advisors and staff
at the Trust, which helps offenders and other disadvantaged people
to rebuild their lives through providing education, training and support
into employment and housing.

Although he never said anything in public, he did concur with Harry's remarks at their mother's memorial service.

And I think we have to remember that, very often, people don't speak about the things that they are most sensitive about. It's probably doubly hard for these young men to talk about this, given how much of their lives have already been exploited for public consumption despite their wishes.

It is nice that Prince William has become a patron of such worthy cause. The main point is that he fully realises goals of the Chile Bereavement Charity due to his personal experience. No matter how old he/he is, it is/will be difficult for any child to lose his/her parents.

Yes, and thank goodness for that. Otherwise we'd never be able to get anything done. My father died over two years ago, and we were very close. My mother-in-law died just three weeks previously to him. I thought I'd never recover. But I noticed a distinct difference after six months, then after a year; now I still miss them but can remember them with pleasure instead of sadness and that horrible feeling of loss.

Prince William is following in Diana's foot steps by being a patron of a charity that relates to something he has felt in his own life, in this case grief over losing a parent. Diana was patron I think of eating disorder organizations, she spoke about an issue which had impacted her own life.

I am sorry for your loss but glad you have been able to get on with your life. It is difficult to lose someone close, parents or children, some need such charities, others have friends and family and those that just get through under their own steam.

William and Harry, have of course been denied just the good memories, with the very public exposes and inquest.
