The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are featuring in a new video alongside the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, to promote their mental health campaign.
- The Fab Four have combined forces once more to promote their new mental health campaign.
- The partnership comes months after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex officially left the Royal Foundation.
- This follows royal news that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Pakistan royal tour details are being kept secret over security concerns.
A preview for the short film has been shared on social media, where the four royals can be heard narrating the video that features a few famous faces such as Gillian Anderson and presenters Clare Balding and Davina McCall.
The full video is three-minutes long and will be shown on all UK TV networks at 8:45pm BST, in what is being is the first ever national mental health campaign.
Prince William opens the video by saying, “Everyone knows that feeling when life gets on top of us. All over the country, millions of us face challenges to our mental health – at all ages – at all intensities, and for all sorts of reasons. We feel stressed, low, anxious, or have trouble sleeping. Me, you.”
The Duke is followed by Prince Harry, who says, “Your brother, your mother, your colleague, or your neighbour. Waiting, wondering, hoping, hurting.
“We think there’s nothing to be done. Nothing we can do about it.”
Duchess Meghan follows to introduce Every Mind Matters saying, “But that’s so wrong. There are things we can do. From today, there’s a new way to help turn things around. Every Mind Matters will show you simple ways to look after your mental health.”
The Duchess of Cambridge continues, “It’ll get you started with a free online plan designed to help you deal with stress, boost your mood, improve your sleep and feel more in control.”
The new program is a partnership with the NHS and has been designed to help people take simple steps to look after their mental health. Users can take a health quiz, and will be offered a personalised “mind plan” with practical tips around managing anxiety, low mood, sleep and stress.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock spoke out about the project, saying that it harnesses the “power of modern technology to do good when we know it also can help contribute to some of these problems”.
He added: “It draws together the importance of treating our mental health on an equal basis to our physical health, and treating it both as an asset that each individual needs to invest in, supported by the NHS and by the government, as opposed to just something that just needs to be fixed when it goes wrong.”
