Almost two decades after Princess Diana's death, her usually private son Prince William has finally spoken up about that dark period in his life. In a new interview with GQ, the Duke of Cambridge admitted to wishing he still has his mother around to seek her advice.

"I would love her to have met Catherine and to have seen the children grow up," William said. "It makes me sad that she won't, that they will never know her."

We're not crying, you are.

The prince also confessed that it has taken him "almost 20 years" to be able to "talk about her more openly [and] honestly" and that he now "can remember her better." He also elaborated on how differently people deal with losing someone they love, either hiding that pain or sharing it with others. 

Together with his wife, Duchess Kate and brother, Prince Harry, the three royals also continue to fight the stigma against mental illness through their Heads Together campaign. Despite how hard things might have been, now Prince William looks to his own family to keep him going.

"I could not do my job without the stability of the family. I want to bring up my children in a happy, stable, secure world and that is so important to both of us as parents," he explained. "I want George to grow up in a real, living environment, I don't want him growing up behind palace walls, he has to be out there. The media make it harder but I will fight for them to have a normal life."
