Prince William decided to open up about his mother, Princess Diana, during a new interview. William definitely has a very beautiful family with his wife Kate Middleton and it seems that the only regret that he has is that his mother will never meet his family.
Prince William opened up during an interview with British GQ and made some unique revelations. The prince said that he is sad that his mom will never be able to meet his wife and his two children. “I would like to have had her advice,” the 34 year old prince said. “I would love her to have met Catherine and to have seen the children grow up. It makes me sad that she won’t, that they will never know her.”
Being able to talk about his late mother has not been simple for William. In fact, it took him no less than 20 years before being able to do this. “I am in a better place about it than I have been for a long time, where I can talk about her more openly, talk about her more honestly, and I can remember her better, and publicly talk about her better,” he said. “It has taken me almost 20 years to get to that stage.”
William went on to say that it is still not easy because of his position. “I still find it difficult now because at the time it was so raw. And also it is not like most people’s grief, because everyone else knows about it, everyone knows the story, everyone knows her,” William explained. “It is a different situation for most people who lose someone they love, it can be hidden away or they can choose if they want to share their story.”
Prince William also talked about his role and how he manages to deal with all the attention that he gets. He said that he has been able to cope with everything because he has the support and the stability of his family, which is very important to him. He said that he just wants his two children to have a normal life and not grow up “behind palace walls.”
