The heartbreaking way Prince Harry dealt with his mother's death

Prince Harry is hoping others going through tough times will handle their problems more productively.

A 2017 radio clip of Prince Harry discussing how he dealt with his mother's passing has resurfaced - and it's as sad as you would imagine.

But while it is heartbreaking hearing Harry open up about his loss, the wonderful Prince used his platform to share a very important message: When going through tough times, it pays to speak up.

Chatting with Bryony Gordon for her Mad World podcast, Prince Harry revealed that it was only once he began talking about his feelings that he began to heal.

The father-to-be admitted he used to "bury his head in the sand", shut down his feelings (something he admits affected his personal life) and refused to think about his mum. But with Prince William's support, Harry got the help he needed to process his grief - and now he's encouraging others to do the same.

Listen to Prince Harry discuss mental health, losing his mum at age 12 and facing his grief head on, in the above video.
