Harry and Meghan will make sure their child is emotionally literate - ‘A child that feels heard, feels understood’

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will make sure their child grows up emotionally literate, an expert says.

Parenting coach Sue Atkins believes the couple's work around mental health will help when it comes to raising their baby.

"A child that feels heard feels understood," she tells Yahoo UK's 'The Royal Box.'

"Talking about how you're feeling, if you're angry, if you're frustrated and acknowledging that they happen."

As well as spearheading the Heads Together campaign with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Harry has also spoken candidly about his own mental health and how he struggled to come to terms with the death of his mother Princess Diana.

The prince was 12 when Diana was killed in a car accident in Paris. He revealed to Telegraph journalist Bryony Gordon on her podcast Mad World in 2017, that he had sought counselling when he was in his late twenties, in order to address his grief.

The Queen's former press secretary Dickie Arbiter and PR expert Nick Ede also discuss Meghan and Harry's preparations for the arrival of Baby Sussex, the challenges of being royal parents in the public eye and how the child's future will be different to that of the Cambridge children.
