Prince William gets as candid as ever in the latest issue of GQ British, speaking openly about his regret that his mother, Princess Diana, will never get to meet his beautiful family. And while he is now happy and able to have that conversation about his mother, the road has not been easy, he confesses.
“It has taken me almost 20 years to get to that stage," he admitted. "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,” Prince William said.
As the world knows, Princess Diana died in 1997 in France, while in a car crash.
“I would like to have had her advice,” Prince William confessed. “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."
And while the tragedy took place 20 years ago, it still haunts the 34-year-old, who was 15 at the time. “The shock is the biggest thing, and I still feel it 20 years later about my mother. People think shock can't last that long, but it does. It's such an unbelievably big moment in your life and it never leaves you, you just learn to deal with it.”
