Prince re­grets not talk­ing about mother’s death

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Prince Harry, whose mother, Diana, died when he was only 12, said he re­gret­ted not open­ing up sooner about how her death had af­fected him. The Bri­tish prince, now 31, was speak­ing at a bar­be­cue he hosted at Kens­ing­ton Palace in hon­our of a men­tal health char­ity. Guests in­cluded some of Bri­tain’s top ath­letes, who also spoke about their per­sonal strug­gles. “I re­ally re­gret not ever talk­ing about it,” the prince told Rio Fer­di­nand, a former Eng­land soc­cer cap­tain whose wife died from cancer last year. The soc­cer player was re­port­edly ask­ing the prince for ad­vice on how he should talk to his three chil­dren about the loss of their mother.
