Lady Gaga And Prince William Chat About Mental Health On FaceTime

Now, she and Prince William have teamed up for a video as a part of their #OKToSay series where they talk frankly on FaceTime about mental health, which was posted today by Kensington Palace.

In the film - which follows the story of 10 different London Marathon runners who struggle with mental health issues - William discusses the terrible tragedy that rocked not just the Royal Family, but the entire world.

It comes a day after Harry revealed that he spent years in "total chaos" as he struggled to deal with his emotions following the death of his mother, Princess Diana, when he was just 12.


In December, Gaga opened up in a letter about her own battles with PTSD after she was sexually assaulted at 19 years old.

In a video produced for Heads Together, a charity put together by Prince William, Prince Harry and The Duchess of Cambridge herself, Kate Middleton, William casually Facetimes with Lady Gaga, as if it is an everyday occurrence.

'In my life I go, "Oh my goodness, look at all these lovely, wonderful things that I have" and "I should be so happy,"' she shared.


Hot on the heels of his brother talking about his own mental illness, Prince William has FaceTimed with Lady Gaga to talk about hers. "People that you think would never have a problem, do".

"We know that this will have a huge impact on people who are still struggling in silence with their mental health - every time someone in the public eye speaks up we know that it encourages ordinary members of the public to do the same. You feel like something is wrong with you", said Gaga. You won't be judged.

Although Prince William says he's just now learning about mental health, the four minute video still manages to be heartwarming and it's clear that William is contractually passionate about the cause. "It's so important to break open that fear and that taboo". We are starting to talk.


But the pair didn't have time for hobnobbing - or Hobnobs, sadly - as they got straight down to discussing the stigma still attached to opening up about mental health issues.
