FATHERHOOD CHANGED WILLIAM
PRINCE WILLIAM’S job affected him when he became a father.
THE future King of the Throne has three beautiful children. But Prince William — who has been a proud advocate of mental health for years — says having kids affected him emotionally while working as an ambulance pilot.
Will, who has appeared at charity events and conferences to speak about the matter, and even founded the Heads Together Initiative to help get rid of the stigma surrounding mental health issues and treatment, recently revealed that he never thought his difficult job would affect him ‘too much’, but things completely changed as soon as he had kids. The fatherof-three admitted that he started to get much more emotional when he ‘worked several times on traumatic jobs involving children’, during his time as a pilot for Air Ambulance. Father to Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three, and six-month-old Prince Louis, with wife Kate Middleton, the royal admitted, “The relation between the job and the personal life was what really took me over the edge. And I started feeling things that I’ve never felt before. And I got very sad and very down about this particular family.”
The Duke of Cambridge added that for the first time he had difficulty separating his work from his personal life. “You start to take away bits of the job and keep them in your body. And of course, you don’t want to share with your loved ones because you just don’t want to bring that sort of stuff home,” he said.
