It was a family affair on Monday morning when Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Prince Harry all visited County Hall in London, right next to the London Eye, in honor of World Mental Health Day.
The three royals gave a joint speech on behalf of their charity, Heads Together, to promote mental health awareness.
The Duke of Cambridge went first, addressing the crowd about the importance of ridding the world of the stereotypes that follow people suffering from mental health issues.
“Mental health is not a dirty word,” the father of two said. “We all have mental health like we do physical health, good or ill. But not seeking help at those times when it all seems too much or we are depressed or anxious, can impact the rest of our lives. Put it simply the three of us want to make asking for help no longer a big deal.”
William’s wife mirrored his sentiment, adding, “William, Harry, and I feel it is our duty to do what we can, with your help, to shine a spotlight on emotional wellbeing and highlight the support that is out there to prevent or manage the pain at difficult times.”
Kate’s brother-in-law, Prince Harry, concluded the speeches, saying, “It’s time we ended the shame around mental health – the fear of judgement that stops people talking or getting help.”
In addition to their speeches, the Royals greeted members of the public and met with other representatives from mental health organizations.
William and Kate recently returned from the Royal Tour of Canada, where their two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, joined them.
