I’m sure many of you saw this news story over the weekend - Prince Harry opened up about his grief over Princess Diana’s death. He said that he shut down all his emotions for 20 years, and finally came close to a breakdown before seeking help.
What did you think? Can you relate to any of what Prince Harry said?
I thought it really highlighted what we so often hear on this site – that grief is devastating, but that not talking about it can make things even worse. It also shows how getting the right support is vital – whether that’s speaking to a counsellor or joining an online group like ours.
This story has certainly brought this issue of bereavement into the public eye. And perhaps seeing such a high profile person being so open about his feelings may have a positive impact in encouraging others to seek support.
