Prince William reveals he suffered from depression after witnessing the aftermath of a devastating crash while piloting an ambulance helicopter. In a remarkable display of frankness, the Duke of Cambridge described in a Podcast how he felt to be engulfed by a dark cloud of angst and depression. This torment left him feeling that “the whole world was dying around him”.

Her depression came after responding to the scene of an accident in which the life of a boy a few years older than his son, Prince George, was in danger.

The future king describes how deeply he was affected by what he went through that day. Overwhelmed by depressive feelings he said it was like “something had changed” in him. A few weeks later, his despair intensified. As he describes it, it was “as if someone had put a key in a lock and opened it without my giving permission to do so.” And to add: “You just feel everyone’s pain, everyone’s in pain. And it’s not me. I’ve never felt this before.

The Prince described how talking to co-workers and meeting the little boy’s family allowed him to overcome his demons over time. It is understood that William was referring to a car accident that damaged the brain of a 5 year old boy, Bobby Hughes.

Last night the mother of the little boy, Carly, 40, told the Daily Mail that the Duke of Cambridge contacted them after the crash: “William told us how it affected him as a father and how he felt our pain. He’s amazing, an honor for our country… I looked him in the eye and, really, he has a good heart. “
