Anyone who's lost a parent can relate to Prince Harry's candid chat with his brother.

'It's very easy to run away from it, to walk away from it and avoid it the whole time.'

Prince William and Prince Harry are finally opening up about one of the toughest subjects imaginable: the sudden, untimely death of their mother in 1997.

In a new video, live-streamed on the royal family's Facebook page, the two brothers spoke about what they wish they had done differently when they lost their mother in a car accident nearly 20 years ago and why they hope that speaking out will help others experiencing similar loss.

Lady Gaga is a big fan of the royal family's mental health awareness campaign — so much so that she gave Prince William a call from her kitchen to thank him for it.

On April 18, 2017, Kensington Palace shared a video of the two candidly FaceTiming across the ocean, chatting about the royal family's Heads Together initiative — an effort to get more people in the U.K. (and elsewhere) to de-stigmatize mental illness and speak up about their own experiences with mental health treatments.

"[Mental health] matters just as much as our physical health," Prince William said at a recent event in London.

"There are times when, whoever we are, it is hard to cope with challenges — and when that happens, being open and honest and asking for help is life-changing."
