While the world was mourning the recent loss of His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Damian wanted to acknowledge his own Duchess, his "little one", who he said was an even better person than she was an actress.He emotionally admitted that in Helen’s final few days, despite her astonishing television and film career, theatre work is what made her "heart sing".He wrote in the Sunday Times: “As I sit down to write this, I can hear Helen shouting from the bed, ‘Keep it short, Damian, it’s not about you’."He went on to state that while Helen was going through her final days, the late actress put others before herself and was constantly thanking her carers as they comforted her."She was funny as hell," he recalled, before going on to say that nurses and staff at the Royal Marsden Hospital had looked forward to her visits, stating that Helen brightened their days by asking how they were getting on, as well as discussing their lives away from work.Writing in The Sunday Times, Damian said: "Helen would say, 'Well, their job's much more difficult than mine,' and she was dying."He painfully went on to add that while his wife had taught their beloved children to not be afraid of what life may throw at them, instead leaving them with her "fearlessness, wit, curiosity, talent and beauty," she also told them: "Don't be sad, because even though I'm about to snuff it, I've lived the life I wanted to."He said: "Already, I miss her," before saying that the James Bond’s Skyfall star had "shone more brightly in the last few months", but had shown bravery and generosity while attempting to "normalise" her death, with the "meteor" in their life, insisting that nobody close to her should be sad.
