Prince Harry isn’t wrong

31st March 2017

Sometimes I’m asked why we blog and contribute to the discussion about death and dying, as though our real job is something else. At Albany, we have a mission to help improve the whole conversation about death and dying in the UK so that people are helped to make better choices which will help them in their grief. We do this because better conversations in our culture around this issue will not only more effectively support those who are going through it, but it will better prepare individuals for when their time arrives to experience grief.

We add our voice, of course, to a growing chorus of people who want more honesty about the subject so that we can grieve more healthily as a society and in doing so, live more fully. In this helpful article, Isy Suttie speaks about her admiration for Prince Harry’s honesty in speaking about his loss, because, in her words, ‘digesting someone’s disappearance is a continual process.’

As a further update, in this interview in the Telegraph, Prince Harry helpfully describes the consequences that not talking about his mother’s death had on his life and the helpful steps he has taken to move forward.

This is a lovely article showing that the clergy are also adapting positively and creatively to this terrible situation. We need to change our rituals to stay safe but this doesn’t necessarily mean that they are any less healing. Those who are willing to accept some changes are able to continue to hold truly personal and meaningful funeral ceremonies. We are working with each family individually to find new ways of doing things to bring them comfort in their unique situation. It can be done ♥️

Grief during coronavirus - lockdown is particularly tough when you're grieving. Being surrounded by family and friends is so vital when you've lost someone you love. Hopefully you are still able to stay connected to others in some way, If you are struggling - some telephone/video grief counselling might help. It's difficult to 'unload' dark feelings onto family and friends, particularly those who might also be grieving, but it does really help to talk.

My thoughts on funerals through coronavirus on NBC. We are often told that we only have once chance to say goodbye to and honour our loved ones.... I think we can look at this differently, and learn to hold rituals in other ways than we are used to, particularly during these times. They can still be healing. ... See MoreSee Less
