Prince William Says Mother’s Day Is A Day Of Emptiness For Him

Prince William admits Mother’s Day carries a sense of ’emptiness’ for him. William was just 16 when Princess Diana died along with her boyfriend Dodi Fayed after a Paris car accident.

Today the future king took the role of patron to The Child Bereavement Charity, which Diana supported.

Nine MSN reports:

“Losing a close family member is one of the hardest experiences that anyone can ever endure,” he said. “Never being able to say the word ‘mummy’ again in your life sounds like a small thing.

“However, for many, including me, it’s now really just a word – hollow and evoking only memories.

“I can therefore wholeheartedly relate to the Mother’s Day campaign as I too have felt – and still feel – the emptiness on such a day as Mother’s Day.”

The charity is launching a Mother’s Day campaign to remind people how hard Mother’s Day can be on children who have lost their mothers and mothers who have lost their children.

The prince has been training to become a search and rescue helicopter pilot in the Royal Air Force.

In Britain March 22 is Mother’s Day.

As William was reflecting on mother’s the news stands have been going crazy with speculations that he will wed Kate Middleton this summer.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the prince proposed to Kate around the time of her 27th birthday in January.

‘She is treated by the staff with the kind of deference reserved for members of the family,’ an insider said. ‘Everyone thinks she and William are a done deal.’
