After a season of advocating for mental health issues as apart of he and Kate Middleton’s Heads Together campaign, Prince William opened up about that and more as apart of a revealing British GQ interview.
Prince William will grace the cover of the July issue, and photographs of he and the Duchess of Cambridge and their two children in their garden fill the pages. The Duke of Cambridge gave what is considered to be his most honest interview yet, answering questions about losing his mother and raising his children in the spotlight. The release date comes just before the 20th anniversary in August of Princess Diana’s death in a car crash.
“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,” Prince William told the magazine.
He explained the toll the death took on he and his brother, Prince Harry. On what it’s like knowing his children will never get to meet Diana, William 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.”
As for George and Charlotte, William plans to make sure they have a normal upbringing. He relies on stability in his home, and wants his children to live beyond the palace walls.
The entire issue of the magazine will go on sale this week, and more from the interview can be read here.
