Prince Harry a role model for mental health

Asked about how it felt to be called courageous and compared to his mother Princess Diana, he added: I see it as being one of those people that was unfortunate enough to have those experiences, but as I said I'm just one of millions of others and every single person has dealt with it in different ways.

He added Prince Harry was now a "real hero to a lot of people".

". You have no idea what you're doing no matter how many books you read - nothing can prepare you for it", Kate said.

In March, the Duchess Cambridge had spoken of the mental disorders that young mothers may experience in a speech.

The royal mother, her husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry have been opening up about their own struggles with mental health in an attempt to rid of the stigma of getting help and speaking up. But in the event of her retirement, abdication, or death, the current line of succession to the throne declares that her firstborn son, Prince Charles, would become king - and at 68, he would be the oldest heir to do so.

Kate was chatting to Katie Massie-Taylor and Sarah Hesz, who have launched an app to help mothers of young children make friends with others in a similar situation. The royal trio has spent the last week in a high-profile, coordinated campaign encouraging people to open up about mental health.

William agreed saying, "There's no rule book". That's the problem and then you think if everyone else's life is ideal, there must be something wrong with me.

Oliver said, "I've not really had a problem I've needed to talk to someone about, but meeting you is a new thing".

The London Marathon takes place this Sunday and over 39,000 runners are expected to support Heads Together. This is their opportunity to put closure on an issue.

"Catherine and I are clear that we want both George and Charlotte to grow up feeling able to talk about their emotions and feelings", Prince William said in an interview with Calmzine magazine. People running for all sorts of different reasons.

In response to the video, Paul Farmer CBE, chief executive of Mind, said: "This is a defining moment for mental health". In a piece published in the Guardian about why the royals' open dialogue matters, writer Alex Renton said, "It's pretty revolutionary to have one of the titular heads of a nation say it's not always a good thing and that speaking up might be better".
