Plus, they share a bit of the behind-the-scenes experience of what it's really like following the royals overseas.

The Cambridges' and Sussexes' are using their voices (quite literally) to share a powerful and inspiring message about mental health.

The Royals will be narrating the three-minute clip that is being launched by Public Health England as part of its Every Mind Matters program.


"We feel stressed, low, anxious, or have trouble sleeping. We think there's nothing that can be done, nothing we can do about it".

A spokeswoman for News Group Newspapers (NGN) - the publishers of The Sun and the now-defunct News of The World - told the BBC: "We confirm that a claim has been issued by the Duke of Sussex".

"It'll get you started with a free online plan created to help you deal with stress, boost your mood, improve your sleep and feel more in control", Kate ends the narration with. The initiative is backed by the United Kingdom government and a coalition of mental health charities including Heads Together, the mental health initiative started by William, Kate and Harry in 2016, before Harry and Meghan Wednesday.


Harry and Meghan's Sussex Royal organization is expected to be up and running in 2020.

This isn't the first documentary Tom has worked on together with the royals. "Please stop victimizing me through the media so we can fix our relationship, '" the friend told the outlet. Did you hear anything I said?' It's nearly like they're ships passing. "He kept saying, 'This is not right, this is not normal, you need to talk to [someone] about stuff, it's OK'".

The duke said he's been unable to comment on the false reports until now, with the process of taking legal action lasting several months, but he's finally spoken out after seeing a stream of positive coverage from the same publications over the last week as the couple toured South Africa - which he described as "double standards".


"It draws together the importance of treating our mental health on an equal basis to our physical health, and treating it both as an asset that each individual needs to invest in, supported by the NHS and by the government, as opposed to just something that just needs to be fixed when it goes wrong".
