Prince Harry has been praised by many, including his family members, for speaking so honestly about his grief over his mother's death.

On Wednesday, the Duchess of Cambridge spoke about her "brilliant" brother-in-law during a reception for London Marathon runners at Kensington Palace, Hello! reports.

During a chat with the Duchess, Jamie Maloy, a primary school teacher, discussed Harry's brave interview with The Daily Telegraph, telling her how much he appreciated Harry opening up.

"Everyone's talking about mental health now because someone who is so famous and so much in the public eye has actually turned around and said something hit me hard, the death of a close loved one," Maloy said.

The Duchess had nothing but praise and support for Harry. "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, do the same. He's been brilliant," she replied.

In his interview with the newspaper, Harry revealed that he suppressed his grief when he was younger and it was only in his late twenties that he fully processed his emotions.

With his brother and sister-in-law, Harry has launched Heads Together, a campaign that promotes mental well-being. It has been named this year's charity of the year at the marathon. Prince William, Prince Harry, and the Duchess of Camrbidge hope the event will encourage people to talk about the issue and will be cheering on participants from the sidelines on Sunday.

On Thursday, the royals continued to promote Heads Together as they opened the new Global Academy, which will support students preparing for media careers, in West London.
