Prince William comforted my son over his mother’s death

Prince William has shared his experience of losing his mother with a teenage boy whose mother died of cancer last year aged 40.

During a visit to a hospice in Luton, the Duke of Cambridge told Ben Hines, 14, that he missed his own mother Diana, Princess of Wales, every day.

Ben's father Gary Hines told 5 live's Peter Allen that the prince was very comforting to his son.

"Himself and Kate were incredibly caring - he said, 'I know how you feel and time will help.'"
