The Royals Promote Mental Health Awareness Ahead of London Marathon

Prince William Kate Middleton

"There are times when whoever we are, it is hard to cope with challenges and when that happens, being open and honest and asking for help is life changing", William, second in line to the British throne, said in a speech.

Kate joined her husband Prince William and brother-in-law Harry at a briefing to outline the next phase of their Heads Together campaign, which aims to tackle the stigma around mental health.

Kate looked radiant in the floral Erdem Evita dress to attend a briefing for the Heads Together campaign she launched with Princes William and Harry.

Prince William vowed to run a marathon in Kenya after announcing plans for his, brother Prince Harry and Duchess Kate's mental health charity, Heads Together, during a London press event Tuesday, January 17. "How do we encourage people to take the first step". "Fear, or reticence, or a sense of not wanting to burden another, means that people suffer in silence - allowing the problem to grow larger and larger unchecked", she said.

The Duke of Cambridge started off their joint speech, by saying that mental health issues could affect anyone, no matter what their status. "These runners will also be leading by example by starting conversations on mental health with their families, friends and colleagues".

"I was chatting to Prince William and he has promised that he will run a marathon in Kenya sometime", Fletcher says. Addressing the audience she said: "We have heard time and time again in the course of our work how talking can help heal the hidden challenges we can't deal with alone".

Kate Middleton is Prince William's number one support system, but when it comes to the Prince running a marathon, she needs a little proof before cheering for him on the sideline.

Meanwhile, unsurprisingly, no sign of Meghan Markle-girlfriend to Prince Harry-at the event.
