William, 34, had an interview British GQ and posed for a handful of intimate family portraits with Princess Kate, Princess Charlotte and Prince George for the magazine's July issue.

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.

"The interview was conducted by mental health campaigner Alastair Campbell, who shares a common cause to tackle the taboo around mental health". Stability at home is so important to me.

The Prince went on to speak about his family and described them as giving him "stability" - saying he could not carry out royal duties without them.

Perhaps the most heartbreaking part of William's interview, though, is when he's asked about the loss of his mother.

And while William may have taken the last 20 years to adjust to life without his mother, he admits he wishes she was here to offer him parenting advice and to see her grandchildren.

Princess Diana was one of the world's most public figures while she was alive and after her tragic death in 1997, she became even more of a household name.

The Duke also spoke on how it makes him sad that his children would never be able to see her.

Princess Diana's vehicle crash death in a Paris tunnel in 1997 shocked the world.

William was 15 and his brother Harry was 12 when they lost their mother. "And also it is not like most people's grief, because everyone else knows about it, everyone knows the story, everyone knows her", he told the magazine.

Prince William is prepared to fight for his children to have a normal life.

Sitting in their garden, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge smile as they watch their young children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, toddling around in the tall grass.

Australian mental health advocates are optimistic Prince William may have helped to spark a wider conversation about dealing with grief.

"You just think 20 years ago this never would have happened, and I think it's a real evidence of a modernising monarchy", she said.
