LONDON — Prince William has spoken candidly about the death of his mother, Princess Diana, describing his bereavement as a "pain like no other pain."

Speaking in a BBC documentary on mental health, William also said that his time working as an air ambulance pilot gave him the impression that death was just "around the door," and the thoughts had become a problem until he spoke with someone.

The comments were part of a discussion about personal struggles that William shared with soccer stars Peter Crouch, Thierry Henry, Danny Rose, Jermaine Jenas and England's manager Gareth Southgate.
