The death of a prominent figure can have a big impact on children, as well as adults and can make them feel overwhelmed, especially if it’s all anyone is talking about on the TV, social media or within their family and friendship groups. This could be a child’s first experience of death or they may have been bereaved previously and this could bring up those difficult feelings again. Talking to a child about the death of The Queen can really help them to share their feelings as bottling them up will usually make them feel worse.
