Prince William, Prince Harry, & Duchess Kate Discuss Princess Diana's Death in Emotional New Video

posted by Savannah -

Prince William, Prince Harry & Duchess Kate are breaking with royal tradition in a new video, in which they discuss their personal issues with mental health.

It's all in support of their organization Heads Together, which encourages people to talk openly about mental illness. Clearly, they're more than willing to practice what they preach!

In the video, the two princes talked of how they struggled with the loss of their mother, Princess Diana. 

"We've never really talked about losing a mum at such a young age. And then when you speak to other people's families and little kids and stuff, you think, 'Wow, I don't want them to have to go through the same things,'" Prince Harry said. "You want to help as much as you can and try and empower them to have that conversation, to be brave enough for themselves to talk about it at a young age, rather than bottling it up [like I did] for far too long."

Last week, Harry made headlines when he admitted that he'd been close to a breakdown (multiple times) before seeing a therapist in in his late 20s.

"I can safely say that losing my mum at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but my work as well," he said then.

I'm kind of in love with the young royals for their openness. 

What do you think about all of this?
