The Duke of Cambridge revived memories of his mother’s death as he comforted a 14-year-old boy who lost his own mother last summer.
Prince William rested his hand on Ben Hines’s shoulder and told him: “Time makes it easier.”
Prince William opened up about his mother’s death while comforting a 14-year-old boy who lost his own parent. While visiting a hospice in Luton, England with the Duchess of Cambrige on Wednesday (August 24, 2016), the Duke of Cambridge revealed he still thinks about Princess Diana almost everyday of his life.
“Time makes it easier,” he told Ben Hines, a teenager whose mom passed away last summer, according to the Daily Mail. “I know how you feel. I still miss my mother every day — and it’s 20 years after she died.”
Admitting that men are not “great sharers” when it comes to their emotions, William made the young boy promise to keep contact with his brothers and father, saying, “Promise me that you will talk to each other.”
During the same visit Catherine, who was head-to-toe in LK Bennett, also shared a touching moment with another child when she was approached with a request for a hug.
“Yes, of course — I love cuddles,” the Duchess of Cambridge said, before giving the boy and his brother hugs.
