In lengthy post, the brother of the Duchess said he’s been “truly touched” by the backing he has received since he candidly spoke about his depression. He explained:

Not that long ago I had forgotten what it was like to laugh with genuine happiness- today I don’t have to pretend to smile.
I am not cured from depression- I don’t think there is one. However I have learnt to tools to keep control, every day I look after my mental health as much as I do my physical health.
