Mary Berry and Prince William documented their trip to "The Passage," a charity for the homeless in their country, and talked about the prince's late mother, Princess Diana.

LESSONS FROM A PRINCESS

William lost his mother at a young age, making the prince go through a grieving process at a young age. He said:

"She realized it was very important when you grow up, especially in the life we grew up in, that you realized life happens beyond palace walls, and that you see real people struggling with real issues."

Among the many things the prince learned from his late mother is to give back to others, especially those who are less fortunate than they are.

William also gave credit to his wife, Catherine Middleton, for helping him in his advocacy, which concentrates on mental health and inner wellness. He continued:

"She realized that my work, Harry's work, and her work were all headed in different directions but all dealing with mental health. She was the one who joined the dots and said we need to tackle."

PRINCE GEORGE AND PRINCESS CHARLOTTE ASK ABOUT HOMELESS PEOPLE

At a young age, siblings Prince Geoge and Princess Charlotte are made knowledgeable about their parents' charitable work.

During drives to school, the two would ask about the homeless people they encounter and remain interested in their status and how to help.

The late princess also never met Middleton; hence, it is mostly William who speaks of his mother before putting his kids to sleep.

THE PEOPLE'S PRINCESS

Diana became the "People's Princess" during her time doing charitable work. Sadly, she passed away at a young age without meeting any of her grandchildren.

William, however, speaks to his kids about their late grandmother and show photos of her that they keep in their home.
