Prince William at Child Bereavement UK Charity event

 

Prince William empathised with those who have lost a loved one as he gave a speech for Child Bereavement UK on Thursday evening. The Prince, who is royal patron of the charity, spoke about how grief is the most painful experience that any child or parent can endure.

Addressing guests at the charity’s 21st birthday dinner, the future King said: “What my mother recognized back then – and what I understand now – is that grief is the most painful experience that any child or parent can endure.

He added “My mother was determined to help those in need and she would have been immensely proud – as I am – of all that Child Bereavement UK has achieved these last 21 years. As a father to two young children, I now appreciate it all the more.”

 

William said that he was “honored” to be appointed royal patron of the charity, which has always been “very dear” to him because of the Memory of her late mother Diana Princess of Wales.
