Prince William Says Losing His Mom at a Young Age Was a 'Pain Like No Other Pain'

Prince William Says Losing His Mom at a Young Age Was a 'Pain Like No Other Pain'

Prince William is candidly speaking out about how the tragic loss of his mother Princess Diana forever changed his life.

In a preview for the BBC special A Royal Team Talk: Tackling Mental Health, which aims to help others talk about their emotions, specifically men, William, 36, opens up about his own experience with grief.

“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,” William says in the clip.

“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,” William says.

However, William notes that although losing a loved one can be very challenging to overcome, he found strength in sharing his story with those who experienced the same.

“It also brings you so close to all those other people out there who have been bereaved. So instantly, when you talk to someone else… You can almost see it in their eyes sometimes.”

William also explains that British people have a hard time expressing their emotions and he hopes to change that.

“There has to be a moment for that,” William says of the British stiff upper lip as it’s known, adding that people need to “be able to talk about our emotions, because we’re not robots.”

William’s honest conversation comes just a couple of days after it was revealed that Prince Harry feels “a gap” raising his newborn son Archie with wife Meghan Markle without his mom.

“There will be a gap from Harry’s point of view,” a royal household source told PEOPLE.

“It’s very sad that poor Diana isn’t here to see her children getting married and now have babies. And it is so sad for him that she isn’t here too,” added a close friend of Diana’s. “Life is so precarious.”

The new royal dad traveled to The Netherlands on last Thursday — while Meghan and their baby boy stayed home in Windsor — to launch the official countdown to the Invictus Gam

Wendy Williams Defends Kelly Ripa After She Criticizes Bachelor Franchise: 'It's Degrading'

Wendy Williams Defends Kelly Ripa After She Criticizes Bachelor Franchise: 'It's Degrading'

Wendy Williams is sticking up for Kelly Ripa after the Live with Kelly and Ryan host made controversial comments about the Bachelor franchise.

During the “Hot Topics” segment of The Wendy Williams Show on Friday, Williams, 54, gave her opinion on the ABC dating reality series and its spin-offs, which she called “degrading,” while also coming to Ripa’s defense.

“I’m not a fan of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette either,” Williams said. “It’s so stupid, women parading themselves around. It depends on who you are, what you want to do with your life. For me, it’s degrading.”

“While I don’t care for beauty pageants and shows like The Bachelor and The Bachelorette where people do that, these days the contestants I believe are a little bit smarter and they end up, well, doing anything that they want. They use us for the ratings,” Williams added.

Despite her feelings about the show, Williams acknowledged that the show is “just entertainment” and “it’s not that serious.” However, she believes creator Mike Fleiss should have refrained from attacking Ripa, 48, and suggesting the show paid her salary.

“Well, if memory serves me, Kelly Ripa has been at ABC … longer than The Bachelor‘s been on. She jumped into an already successful show, she continued to keep it an already successful show, so if anybody’s paying anybody’s salary, just saying,” said Williams.

Since 2001, Ripa has been co-hosting morning talk show Live. When she started, it was Live with Regis and Kelly until 2011. Then it was Live with Kelly before becoming Live with Kelly and Michael and now it’s Live with Kelly and Ryan.

The feud between Ripa and the reality TV heavyweights began on Tuesday when the former All My Children star said, “Guys, you know how I feel about this show. It disgusts me.”

“I thought that I was disgusted because I couldn’t stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion,” she continued. “You know how I feel, ladies: We are too special to be arguing over a guy,” Ripa said.

Both Bachelor Chris Harrison, 47, and Fleiss clapped back on Twitter, with Harrison writing, “Look out #BachelorNation ⁦@KellyRipa⁩ is coming after you and your ‘disgusting’ Monday night habit.”

Fleiss, 55, chimed in with, “Eas

And just like that, Jonathan Tucker is a father of two.

The former Kingdom actor, 36, and wife Tara welcomed their first and second children on Tuesday, the couple told ET on Friday.

“We cannot believe our good fortune,” Tucker said. His rep added, “Mother and father are over the moon.”

Tucker shared the couple’s double-bundle-of-joy news on Instagram in April, posting a photo of himself surrounded by baby products.

Conservative Commentator Tomi Lahren Slams Alabama Abortion Bill as 'Too Restrictive'    

Conservative Commentator Tomi Lahren Slams Alabama Abortion Bill as 'Too Restrictive'
 
 

Conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren is speaking out against Alabama’s abortion ban.

“I will be attacked by fellow conservatives for saying this but so be it, this Alabama abortion ban is too restrictive,” Lahren, 26, said on Twitter Thursday. “It doesn’t save life, it simply forces women into more dangerous methods, other states or countries. You don’t encourage life via blanket government mandate!”

In another tweet, she challenged anyone who would question her Christian faith because of her less conservative views about abortion.

“If you think banning abortion with no exception for rape or incest will stop women from terminating pregnancy, you’re not being honest with yourself,” the Fox Nation host said. “P.S. you’re not God so don’t you dare evaluate my Christian faith based on your moral superiority complex.”

The national conversation turned to Alabama this week, where Governor Kay Ivey signed into law the “Alabama Human Life Protection Act.” The bill, which bans abortion even in cases of incest or rape, has been widely criticized. Many celebrities have spoken out against it, and talk show host Busy Philips introduced the hashtag #YouKnowMe, encouraging women to share their stories of abortion. Several celebrities answered the call, including Minka Kelly and  April Love Geary have spoken about their own abortions.

I will be attacked by fellow conservatives for saying this but so be it, this Alabama abortion ban is too restrictive. It doesn’t save life, it simply forces women into more dangerous methods, other states or countries. You don’t encourage life via blanket government mandate!

Teen Wolf Star Holland Roden Detained by Brazilian Officials at Sao Paulo Airport

Teen Wolf Star Holland Roden Detained by Brazilian Officials at Sao Paulo Airport

Holland Roden, known for her performance of Lydia Martin in the MTV series Teen Wolf, has been detained for over six hours at Brazil’s São Paulo–Congonhas Airport.

On Friday, Roden, 32, arrived in Brazil to attend the 4U Experience fan event taking place on Saturday when she was stopped by officials who claimed that her visa was invalid.

The star claims she has been treated like a criminal and denied water and food by authorities.

In a statement shared with PEOPLE, a representative for Roden confirmed that the actress detained.

“Her visa is valid and has traveled to the country two times this year with the same visa,” the statement read.

“We are desperately seeking help from the U.S. embassy and Brazilian government,” the statement continues. “We fear they will send her back without reevaluating her situation. The only person she knows there is her agent, Michael Brooks, and the Brazilian officials are treating them like criminals and are trying to separate them. We need the public to know about this aggressive and uncalled for behavior.”

Brazil’s Department of Immigration and Judicial Affairs and the U.S. State Department did not immediately reply to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Roden thanked her fans in Brazil in a lengthy Instagram post that detailed her confusion over officials’ claims that she had an invalid visa.

Sharing a screengrab of political writer Alex Mohajer’s tweets in which he wrote that the Teen Wolf actress was “being treated aggressively,” Roden wrote in the caption, “After two years of traveling to Brazil with this passport and this visa with no problems, to meet fans and make friends, I am taken aback by the accusations and the treatment that faced me from the Brazilian Police today. I am shocked that this is the same Brazil I know and love. I hope I get to see all of you tomorrow.”
