These are the words which Prince William spoke, on 12 March 2009, during a charity meeting for families and volunteer workers in London as a preparation for Mother’s Day on March 22. Prince William has become the patron of the Child Bereavement Charity. An organization which helps youngsters to cope with the death of love ones.
For the first time, since the death of his mother, Princess Diana, Prince William spoke publicly about his pain. He admitted that he had tried to blank out his emotions in order to deal with the loss of his mother. Ever since her death the word Mummy was no longer lively present only in memories.
As I read this article I became aware of the fact that he had never expressed himself before as he did in this article. Everyone has his or her own way of dealing with grieve. Although I am not as famous as he is I can relate to the emptiness in his heart. My mother died when I was nine years old. I never had the urge to do something on Mother’s Day. I even became angry when I had to make a present for Mother’s Day at school, knowing I had no one to give it to. In the end you have to deal with it in order to continue with your life, as the deceased person would have wanted you to do. I think it is a noble cause of him to help others who go through the same hurt he had.
