The Duke of Cambridge said that he empathizes with a person who loses someone dear, especially children, because he passed through the same experience.
Speaking on a BBC programme on mental health, Prince William stated that he never experienced before the pain he felt when his mother died.
He recalled an experience as pilot of an air ambulance, a duty in which he felt that death was always nearby. He said that the fact that each day he was close to people who were given the bad news, affected him very much.
He felt an increasing pressure on himself and realized he needed to speak about it because he faced a problem.
The Duke of Cambridge and his brother have already acted to raise awareness on mental health by setting up the Heads Together campaign and a service of messages to those passing through mental problems.
