Kate Middleton and Prince William broadcast Mental Health Minute

Prince William and Duchess Kate have taken over every radio station in the UK today to deliver an important message.

At 10:59 AM, the Cambridges began their Mental Health Minute. During their surprising 60-second broadcast, they talked about loneliness and mental health.

“We’re all in different places now,” William said, with Kate adding, “Not just physically, but mentally.”

William continued, “And we can all feel lonely at times.”

The royals, who appeared to be taking the message from their home in Kensington Palace, encouraged listeners to be there for those feeling isolated.

“So if you think someone you know might be feeling lonely, just call them, text them, or knock on their door,” Kate said.

“Maybe suggest meeting up for tea or for a walk,” William added.

“Because these little acts of kindness can make a big difference and make us all feel less lonely,” Kate noted.

While the COVID-19 pandemic has certainly caused many physical and emotional problems for people around the world, William said it has also “reminded us of the importance of human relationships.”

The future King of England also apologized to listeners for “interrupting every radio station in the country”.

“But if we interrupt the lives of those who feel alone…” Kate said.

“… We can help them get out of their loneliness,” William concluded.

The Cambridges’ message comes during Mental Health Awareness Month and Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK. Long-time mental health advocates, William and Kate have worked to support those in need and break the stigma surrounding mental illness.

During his and Kate’s trip to Scotland this week, William visited the Heart of Midlothian Football Club in Edinburgh to witness The Changing Room, a Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH) program that uses football as an opportunity for men to address their emotional well-being. being.

William’s brother, Prince Harry, is also a staunch supporter of the cause. In the documentary The me you can’t see Harry said part of the reason he left the royal family was because the lifestyle was affecting the mental health of his wife, Duchess Meghan – to the point where she wanted to end her life – and after going through that with his mother , Princess Diana, he couldn’t bear to see another woman he loves suffer from a condition that can be treated.

Last year, Kate and William joined other infamous figures — including soccer star David Beckham, singer Anne-Marie and chef Jamie Oliver — for the Mental Health Minute. On the broadcast, they urged listeners to continue conversations about mental health.

“Caring for our mental health and well-being has never been more important. This #WorldMentalHealthDay, we highlight some of the amazing organizations that provide support to those who need it – because help is there,” they wrote. “What are you going to do today to take care of your mental health?”
