Prince William, grandson of Queen Elizabeth II of England, wants his children to express their emotions and he has been shown against people that is impassive in certain situations if this damages their health.
In a statement to CALMzine, the magazine of the charity organization CALM, which promotes mental health, the Duke of Cambridge referred to the emotions after his brother, Prince Henry, revealed yesterday that he attended therapy to overcome the death of his mother, Diana of Wales, in an accident in 1997.
“Catherine and I are clear that we want both (prince) George and (princess) Charlotte to grow up feeling able to talk about their emotions and feelings,” said the Prince, who alongside his brother and the Duchess of Cambridge support a Campaign to promote mental health through the expression of emotions.
“In the last year, we have visited several schools together, where we have been amazed to hear children talking about some quite difficult issues in a clear and emotionally articulate way, something that many adults would have difficulties,” he added.
These visits, “added the 34-year-old Duke,” have shown him that there is “hope” that things are changing in the UK and that it seems normal to new generations to speak “openly of their emotions.”
The prince, second in the line of succession to the British throne, emphasized that there can be “a moment and a place” to remain impassive before the emotions, “but not at the expense of his health”.
His 32-year-old brother detailed to the Daily Telegraph yesterday how before he turned 30 he entered a period of “complete chaos” that lasted two years and sought psychological counselling to deal with the duel.
Princess Diana died in an accident in Paris in 1997, at age 36, when her young son was 12 and her older brother, Prince William, 15.
