Prince William Comforts Young Girl Who Lost Parent, Just Like He Did
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were special guests Wednesday at a Child Bereavement UK center in Stratford, London, and Prince William shared a touching moment with a young girl grieving the death of her father.
"Do you know what happened to me?" the prince told Aoife, 9, who lost her father six years ago to pancreatic cancer. "You know I lost my mummy when I was very young too. I was  and my brother was 12. So we lost our mummy when we were young as well."
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana's death.

Prince William, royal patron of Child Bereavement UK, told the girl that it's very important to continue to talk about her father.
"I couldn't believe it when he (Prince William) started to talk about his mother," Aoife's mother, Marie, said. "It was very emotional and I was willing myself not to start to cry. I almost did."
The prince encouraged all the children in attendance to create memory jars to remember their lost loved ones.
