Prince William comforts boy whose mother died

Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, visited a bereavement center called Keech Hospice Care in Lutton, England, to mark its 25th anniversary. There he met 14-year-old Ben Hines. Ben and his three brothers lost their mother a year ago. All four are still struggling with grief.

The Duke lost his own mother, Princess Diana, 20 years ago in a car accident in Paris. He advised the Hines family to stick together through trying times. "I know how you feel," William told Ben. "I still miss my mother every day. The important thing is to talk about it as a family. It's okay to feel sad. It's okay for you to miss her." Speaking after the meeting, Ben's father said, "He gave Ben his absolute attention. He put his hand on Ben's shoulder and told him time is a healer and to stick together and talk."
