After Princess Diana tragically died, then-12-year-old Harry took what amounted to a vow of public silence. That was in 1997. Three years ago, he finally began letting it out.
When called upon by “former British soccer star Rio Ferdinand” for advice about how to speak with children about grief, Harry expressed this sentiment: I really regret not ever talking about it [Diana’s death].
As regret turned to meaningful action, Harry then partnered with brother William and sister-in-law Kate in an effort “to raise awareness about mental health.” At a recent Heads Together event, Harry explained: It is okay to suffer, but as long as you talk about it, it is not a weakness.
