Prince William is set to star in a groundbreaking documentary on the topic of mental health.

The future King was followed by cameras over the course of a year of his life, looking into the world of football and mental health in men.

The one off documentary will air on the BBC next month and is titled Tackling Mental Health With the Duke of Cambridge. It comes as part of May’s Mental Health Awareness week, which takes place from the 18th to the 24th of May.

Throughout last year, the heir to the throne met with footie fans, players and those high up in the sport industry to discuss mental wellbeing.

Stars who will feature in the doc include Chelsea icon Frank Lampard, former England goalie Joe Hart and ex Premier League footballer Marvin Sordell.

We will also see William delve into the lives of grieving men who used their local football clubs as a way to seek support and open up about their feelings.

Speaking to Premier League chairman about the importance of good mental health last year, Prince William said, “We all need to take care of our everyday mental fitness, and provide support to one another when we face setbacks, so we can be match fit for whatever lies ahead.”

The Duke and his wife, Duchess Catherine, are well known for their work in advocating mental health awareness and are the founders of royal charity, Heads Together.

The pair recently got involved with the NHS’s Every Mind Matters TV campaign, voicing a new advert signposting tips and advice to support your mental health during the coronavirus pandemic.
