Asked about Prince Harry’s candid interview, in which he spoke of having counseling to come to terms with his mother’s death, she said: “We all felt there was very much a campaign to get everyone talking and have these conversations.”

“We’ve got to do the same, you know, so he’s been brilliant.”

Jamie Moloy, a headteacher, told the Duchess at the event: “What I love is your brother-in-law talking the other day, because that’s just ignited it.”
