Prince William still misses mom Diana

world Updated: Mar 14, 2009 19:39 IST

A dozen years after the demise of his mother Princess Diana, Prince William has revealed how much he misses her. Writing in a British daily, Daily Mail, he wrote that never being able to say the word "Mummy" again in your life sounds like a small thing but for him like many others, it’s a life altering experience evoking only memories.

William, who never made his feelings about his mother public, changed his mind after becoming the royal patron of the Child Bereavement Charity.

Princes Diana died in 1997 in a car crash when Prince William was just 15 years old.

Prince William went on say that “initially there is a sense of profound shock and disbelief that this could ever happen to you. Real grief often does not hit home until much later. For many it is a grief never entirely lost."

"Life is altered as you know it, and not a day goes past without you thinking about the one you have lost."

He added: "I know that over time it is possible to learn to live with what has happened and with the passing of years, to retain or rediscover cherished memories."
