Prince William Gets Vulnerable, Talks ‘Pain Like No Other’ After Diana Died

No more stiff upper lip. Prince William opened up about the grief he experienced upon losing his mother, Princess Diana.

The royal, 36, sat down with soccer pros to discuss men’s mental health for BBC’s A Royal Team Talk: Tackling Mental Health, which will air on Sunday, May 19. “I think when you are bereaved at a very young age, anytime really, but particularly at a young age — I can resonate closely to that — you feel pain like no other pain. And you know that in your life it’s going to be very difficult to come across something that is going to be an even worse pain than that,” he said. “But it also brings you so close to all those other people out there who have been bereaved.”

William shared how his vulnerability is a comfort to those who have gone through similar trials. “So you instantly, when you talk to someone else, you can almost see it in their eyes sometimes. It’s a weird thing to say, but somebody — particularly me — someone who’s desperate to talk about bereavement, you can kind of pick up on it quite quickly,” he explained. “They want to talk about it. But they want you to go first, they want you to say, ‘It’s OK,’ they want to have your permission. In that particular conversation, one-on-one it’s OK to talk about bereavement.”

The Duke of Cambridge went on to point out that British people find this difficult because they are conditioned to hide how they truly feel. “I think particularly in Britain as well, we are nervous about our emotions. We are a bit embarrassed sometimes,” he reasoned. “The British stiff upper lip thing, that’s great and we need to have that occasionally when times are really hard. There has to be a moment for that. But otherwise, we’ve got to relax a little bit and be able to talk about our emotions because we’re not robots.”

Princess Diana died in August 1997 after being involved in a car crash in Paris. William was 15 at the time of his mother’s death, while Prince Harry was 12.

How Marvel and Corporate Comics Are Failing the ‘Vulnerable’ Creators Behind Their Superheroes

Last month, novelist Chuck Wendig—the bestselling author of the licensed Star Wars novel Aftermath and its sequels—stood before a crowd at New York Comic Con and announced he’d be working on Shadow of Vader, a miniseries for Marvel Comics. A week later, on October 12th, Wendig made another announcement: he’d been fired. The reason given, Wendig wrote on his personal website, was “the negativity and vulgarity that my tweets bring. Seriously, that’s what Mark, the editor said…It was too much politics, too much vulgarity, too much negativity on my part.”

Wendig, an openly progressive and occasionally combative presence on social media, had been the target of a long-running harassment campaign* fueled by reactionaries in the Star Wars fan community. His books were review bombed; he dealt with SWATing attempts, harassment from bots and sock-puppet accounts, and creepy personal messages. “People have been trying to get me fired from Star Wars since Aftermath came out. Since before it came out, actually,” he told The Daily Beast in an email. “[Lucas Film Licensing] has always had my back, and with Marvel, my politics never came up. And I haven’t been shy about those politics—or about being vulgar, which has been part of my voice so to speak since my first novel, Blackbirds, which is a very vulgar book…I never received any warnings about my behavior.”

12 Mistakes That Make Your Car Vulnerable to Break-Ins

It’s no secret that Americans practically live in their cars, treating them as a home away from home. But cars are typically much easier to break into than the average home, resulting in an estimated 773,139 motor vehicle thefts nationwide in 2017 and some $ 6 billion in losses, according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Data report. Motor vehicle theft continues to rise—in fact, from 2013 to 2017 the number of thefts rose 10 percent. Fortunately, preventing car break-ins is mostly matter of taking simple precautions that make your vehicle a less tempting target. Here are just a few measures you can implement to keep your car and belongings safe from thieves.
