Mary Berry details recipe for her chocolate mousse cake

Former Great British Bake Off judge Mary Berry has opened up about her son William’s tragic death at the age of just 19 back in 1989, saying there is a “comfort” in believing that she will see him in the afterlife.

The 88-year-old was in a reflective mood as she recalled the car crash that killed him on a weekend home from university in Bristol.

Having borrowed his father’s car, he went too fast around a corner and was killed while his sister Annabel escaped unhurt.

Mary is a regular churchgoer and admits that her faith is a comfort saying: “Yes, definitely. It’s important to me.”

Asked if she believes she will be reunited with loved ones including her son in the Afterlife she told MailOnline: “Oh, yes! I think so. Absolutely. I hope so. There is a comfort in that.”

Even after all these years, Mary has confirmed that he is still a part of their family life.

“Every occasion we can we drink to Will. And you wonder what would have been. I still think of him as 19. He would be 53 now. Who would he be?” she said.

Mary and her husband Paul, an antiquarian bookseller whom she wed in 1966, have two other children, Thomas and Annabel, and five grandchildren.

Her granddaughter Abby is following in her culinary footsteps and is currently at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu Paris herself where Mary herself trained.

For her part, Mary shows no signs of slowing down despite being just a couple of years from her 99th birthday and she has a new book and TV series, both called Mary Makes It Easy, coming up.

She even has fans in high places in the form of the Princess of Wales, who recently told her that one of Prince Louis’ first words was Mary’s name due to her cookbooks in their kitchen.

The admiration is seemingly mutual as Mary appeared on TV with Kate and Prince William back in 2019 and in October 2022 she praised Kate’s parenting as she attended the Pride Of Britain awards.

She told the Daily Star, “She [Kate] wants to do things well – she does it with a smile and she’s a really good mum.”
