THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have appeared in a new film as part of the Heads Together campaign’s #oktosay series.
The film captures a conversation between Their Royal Highnesses in Kensington Palace as they looked ahead to this weekend’s Virgin Money London Marathon and reflected on the growth of the campaign over the last year.
The conversation covers a range of topics including the emotional changes new parents go through, bereavement, the stresses of modern childhood, and dealing with trauma in the workplace.
The film also explains the story behind the Heads Together campaign and Their Royal Highnesses’ goal to shine a spotlight on the power of conversations – both to shatter stigma on mental health and to help people get the help they need.
A spokesman for Kensington Palace said: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have been overwhelmed by the response to the Heads Together campaign.
“We are in the middle of a truly national conversation on mental health.
“They are incredibly grateful to everyone who has shared their stories in recent weeks.
“And having asked others to start conversations on mental health with their friends and families, they wanted to show that they are taking part as well.
“They hope the film shows how positive a conversation on mental health can be.”
