Speaking in a BBC documentary on mental health, the Duke of Cambridge said that British people – especially men – should feel comfortable talking about mental health issues.
"I think when you are bereaved at a very young age – anytime really, but especially when young, I can echo close to that – you feel pain like no other pain t , and you know it's going in your life to be very difficult to encounter something that's going to be a pain even worse than that, "says William.
"Especially in Britain, we are nervous about our emotions," he added. "We feel a bit embarrassed at times. You know, it 's top British stiff lips' – that's great, and we need to get that from time to & t Together, when times are very difficult, we have to have a moment about that.
"But otherwise, we have to relax a little, and be able to talk about our emotions, because we're not robots."
The Duke called for more emotional honesty when talking to Peter Crouch, Danny Rose, Thierry Henry, Jermaine Jenas, and England manager Gareth Southgate as part of the BBC's "Royal Team Talk" on mental health.
He was 15 when his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, was killed in a car crash in Paris while her driver fled fleeing paparazzi.
William also serves as President of the Football Association of England.
