I am so grateful to William for acknowledging the importance of helping parents and children cope with grief. I have too much experience with this, having lost my mother at age 14 and my dear son this year when he was 41. He had end-stage Multiple Sclerosis. My son has two daughters, ages 10 and 4, who have greatly benefitted from art therapy with a hospice organization. They have learned they are not alone in grief and have support from the community. I think it's more important than ever to help children cope with grief, especially since our society is so mobile.

Love that William has the courage to express what a painful loss he suffered, and help others.

'Grief is the most painful experience' William opens up about Princess Diana's death-

Don't why the editor used a picture of actors in a Diana movie in this article. That's a silly error, IMO.

Prince William opened up about his painful past in an emotional speech.

The 33-year-old royal spoke of the heartbreak of losing a loved one on Thursday night when he attended a gala in London celebrating the 21st anniversary of the Child Bereavement Charity, an organization that was supported by his late mother, Princess Diana.

"Twenty-one years ago last month, my mother attended the launch of the Child Bereavement Charity," William began his speech. "Fifteen years later, I was honored to be invited to become Patron of Child Bereavement UK to continue my mother's commitment to a charity which is very dear to me.

This article is perhaps posted on one of the many other threads here already, but nice to see our (according to some in the media and some of the posters here on TRF) lazy, boring, workshy and uncharismatic duke/duchess out and about. To me, they are the exact opposite.

Prince William speaks about Diana on engagement with Kate Middleton | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
Prince William movingly comforted a little girl grieving for her father today, telling her: 'I lost my mummy when I was very young too.'

The prince, who later this year will mark the 20th anniversary of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, asked Aoife, nine: 'Do you know what happened to me? You know I lost my mummy when I was very young too. I was 15 and my brother was 12.'

The prince, accompanied by his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, was visiting the Child Bereavement UK Centre in Stratford, which is marking its one year anniversary, and provides support for children and families when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing personal loss.

He urged Aoife, whose father John died from pancreatic cancer six years ago, not to bottle up her loss, adding: 'Do you speak about your daddy? It's very important to talk about it. Very, very important.'

They fixed the quote. I saw an earlier version with the quote being 13 and 12 for the ages. I thought it was totally strange that William himself would mess up the age.

Yes I think they do a good job of supporting each other quite well...she's said he takes good care of her. They both seem like very stable well balanced individuals.

TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Child Bereavement UK’s Centre in East London on 11 January 2017. The Duke of Cambridge has been Royal Patron of Child Bereavement UK since 2009, a charity which supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.

While at the Stratford site, Their Royal Highnesses met bereaved families and children who have been supported by Child Bereavement UK in London and attended one of the charity’s Family Support Group sessions for children aged 4-12. These groups, facilitated by Child Bereavement UK’s bereavement support practitioners and trained volunteers, give children, their parents, and carers, the opportunity to meet other bereaved families and to explore the themes of memories, feelings, support networks and resilience. These sessions can help to decrease their sense of being alone and feeling ‘different’ when someone important in their lives has died.

In an emotional new fundraising campaign video for Child Bereavement UK, Prince William is asking the public to donate to the organisation, which supports bereaved families.

The Duke of Cambridge appears in a series of videos for his patronage, alongside those who have lost loved ones – both well-known and not. They tell the camera what they would say to their loved one if they had just one extra minute with them.
