Prince Harry Talks About his Regret After Princess Diana's Death
Prince Harry was only recently able to open up about his mother but he said that he regrets not talking about his grief at an earlier age. The 31-year-old's event was attended by many guests such as Former England and Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand. He then asked Prince Harry about the impact of losing a mother and what it can do to the children left behind. Ferdinand's wife passed away due to cancer and he is now taking care of their three children.
The younger brother of Prince William then replied, "I really regret not ever talking about it for the first 28 years of my life. It's OK to suffer, as long as you talk about it. It's not a weakness. Weakness is having a problem and not recognizing it and not solving that problem."
Ferdinand then shared that he appreciates the honesty and the advice of Prince Harry. Ferdinand said that Prince Harry has gone through different stages in his life that his children will experience.
