Duke & Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry star in new film ahead of London Marathon

The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry are featured in a new film that has been released today as part of the Heads Together campaign’s #oktosay series.

The film has been released a couple of days before the London Marathon and captures a conversation between the three young royals in the grounds of Kensington Palace.

In the video, they discuss the London Marathon of which they will play a role in and also reflect on the growth and success of the Head’s Together campaign.

The three royals discuss a variety of difficult topics including parenthood, bereavement, the stresses of modern childhood, and dealing with trauma in the workplace.

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.”

The video has been released just a week after Prince Harry has revealed that he sought counselling in the years after his late mother’s death in order to come to terms with his loss.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Prince Harry said that he underwent two years of ‘chaos’ in his twenties when he came close to a breakdown on a number of occasions.

He said that despite his brother, Prince William, urging Harry to get help, he “shut down all of his emotions” for almost twenty years after Diana, Princess of Wales’s death.

The fifth-in-line to the throne has made the disclosures as part of an effort to encourage people to speak out about their mental health, and any problems they may have.

In the Telegraph’s interview, the Prince said that he was “on the verge of punching someone” at the point when he finally sought help at the age of 28.

    They are definitely making their own mark and legacies to be respected by all. Diana would be astonished as I am sure Prince Charles is overly joyed by the fine young men he has brought up with the addition of the ever lovely Dutchess Katherine.
