Britain’s Prince Harry says he wishes he had spoken sooner about the death of his mother, Princess Diana.

Harry, who did not speak about his bereavement until three years ago, told the BBC that it wasn’t a sign of weakness to speak about problems. Harry was 12 when Diana died in a car crash in 1997.

The 31-year-old Harry says “I really regret not ever talking about it.”

The comments, broadcast Monday, came during a barbecue with athletes who had struggled with mental health issues. Among others attending the event were England soccer star Rio Ferdinand, whose wife died from cancer.

Harry says that anyone - be they members of the royal family or van drivers - can be affected by mental health issues.

“Everyone can suffer,” he said.
