His sister-in-law Pippa Middleton ran a marathon in Kenya, and Prince William said he will do the same in the future.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry today kicked off the next phase of the #HeadsTogether campaign to create conversations around mental health and help end the stigma. The Heads Together campaign is spearheaded by Their Royal Highnessess and brings together charity partnerships in a bid to ensure people around the UK feel comfortable with their everyday mental wellbeing.
“I chatted to Prince William, and he has promised that he will run a marathon in Kenya sometime,” Good Morning Britain’s Sean Fletcher told reporters at an event attended by Princess Kate, Prince William and Prince Harry to showcase their mental health charity Heads Together.
Princess Kate didn’t seem too convinced of her husband’s athletic abilities.
“Then I spoke to Kate and she said, ‘I’ll believe it when I see it,’” said Fletcher, who is running the 26.2 mile course on behalf of the Young Minds charity after son was recently diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry are spearheading a new campaign to end stigma around mental health. The #HeadsTogether campaign aims to change the national conversation on mental wellbeing. It will be in partnership with inspiring charities with decades of experience in tackling stigma, raising awareness, and providing vital help for people with mental health challenges. The campaign will be the 2017 @LondonMarathon Charity of the Year and is supported by the Royal Foundation. Please visit www.headstogether.org.uk for more information.
The royal couple have poked fun at each other in the past, indulging in their competitive sides when it comes to athletics. Despite Kate’s hilarious quip about the prince’s sporting capabilities, Prince William is a seriously skilled polo player across the pond.
