“The pair were always close even from birth. William used to get into Harry’s cot, climb in and out… and he was very protective of him.”
“In fact, William was the one that suggested he go and see someone about his anger and depression,” she added.
“And I think the fact that Harry revealed that it was William that helped him is very encouraging. It alludes to how close they are.”
Harry has previously spoken about his brother’s involvement in dealing with his deep depression back in 2017.
“For me, my brother – God bless him – has been an enormous support,” Harry told the Telegraph about his brother suggesting that he see a professional.
“I just couldn’t put my finger on it,” added Harry. “I just didn’t know what was wrong with me.”
“I can safely say that losing my mum at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years,” Harry said, “has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but my work as well.”
“My way of dealing with it was sticking my head in the sand, refusing to ever think about my mum, because why would that help?” Harry added. “[I thought] it’s only going to make you sad, it’s not going to bring her back.”
“And then started to have a few conversations and actually all of a sudden, all of this grief that I have never processed started to come to the forefront and I was like, there is actually a lot of stuff here that I need to deal with,” he added.
And likewise, Prince William recently spoke about depression in the new documentary A Royal Team Talk: Tackling Mental Health.
"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 a pain like no other pain," the Duke of Cambridge said in the documentary.
"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 added.
