Prince Harry regrets not talking about Diana's death

PRINCE Harry has opened up about the death of mother Princess Diana, telling a charity event he regrets not talking about it sooner.

Harry spoke at a barbecue for Heads Together, a mental health charity he helps lead.

The royal was 12 years old when his mother was killed in a car crash in Paris in 1997.

He told footballer Rio Ferdinand: "You know, I really regret not ever talking about it".



The Prince of Wales, 31, said even members of the royal family could face mental issues because the conditions do not discriminate on grounds of wealth, property or family.

"It's OK to suffer as long as you talk about it," he said.

"It's not a weakness. Weakness is having a problem and not recognising it and not solving that problem."

"A lot of people think if you've got a job, if you've got financial security, if you've got a family, you've got a house, all that sort of stuff, everyone seems to think that is all you need and you are absolutely fine to deal with stuff."
