Prince William talks of sadness that family can't meet Diana

"I just don't understand it", he says. I don't want him growing up behind palace walls. She has also been a maid at Buckingham Palace, and was reportedly well-liked in her most recent role by Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

"I want George to grow up in a real, living environment".

While we'd like to think working for the British Royal Family would be a dream gig filled with tasks like keeping Prince George entertained and helping Kate pick which tiara to wear, according to shock reports out of the United Kingdom it's far from a walk in the park. It makes me said that she won't, that they will never know her'.

Princess Diana was killed in a vehicle accident in 1997, and as it approaches the 20 year anniversary of her passing, William has revealed his sadness that she will never get to meet his children.

"I can talk about her more openly, talk about her more honestly, and I can remember her better, and publicly talk about her better", William says of his mother.

Sadie Rice's decision is said to be in part due to the lack of a life she felt she had outside of her work for William and Kate.

The Duke of Cambridge acknowledged that while it may be hard, he wants to find a way to help his two children experience a normal life despite them being part of the United Kingdom's Royal Family. "Stability at home is so important to me", he said.

The mental health campaign spearheaded by Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry launched past year with a goal of ending the stigma around mental illness.

"It's a different situation for most people who lose someone they love".

The duke also spoke about the aims of the Heads Together campaign he promotes with his wife and brother Harry.

He said he had been shocked by "how many people live in fear and in silence due to their mental illness", and he'd like to help remove the stigma. "We can not go anywhere much until that is done", William said of their work. Their governess chose to say goodbye to Kate and William when the couple will have to get involved a little more in their responsibilities.
