In their first joint engagement of 2017, William, Kate and Harry made a visit to London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts in an effort to bring more attention to their ‘Heads Together’ campaign. They launched the campaign last year in hopes to erase the stigma attached to mental illness. The royal trio has been very vocal in recent years about mental health and the importance of helping those who suffer from it. A spokesperson for Will, Kate and Harry said:
“Through their work with young people, emergency response, homeless charities, and with veterans, Their Royal Highnesses have seen time and time again that unresolved mental health problems lie at the heart of some of our greatest social challenges.
“They are passionate about tackling the stigma surrounding the issue. Too often, they have seen that people feel afraid to admit that they are struggling with their mental health. This fear of prejudice and judgement stops people from getting help and can destroy families and end lives. They want to help change the national conversation.
“Heads Together will be the biggest project The Duke and Duchess and Prince Harry have undertaken together. They are incredibly grateful to be working with charities who have achieved so much in the fight against the stigma that surrounds the issue. They want the Heads Together campaign to build on the great work that is already being done across the country so that prejudice and fear no longer stand in the way of people getting the help they need. They want people need to feel much more comfortable with their everyday mental wellbeing and have the practical tools to support their friends and family.”
This video launched the start of the campaign in April of last year. Be sure to watch until the end for the cutest bloopers ever! 😉
This video features the event today and William’s call to make the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon the mental health marathon.
It was also reported that William claimed he wanted to run a marathon in Kenya one day, to which Kate laughingly replied “I’ll believe it when I see it.” Wouldn’t it be great to see them both running a marathon one day?
It is so great to see all the amazing work that has been done so far with Heads Together and I can’t wait to watch the campaign grow and make an even bigger impact on people in the UK and around the world.
Now, on to fashion…

Kate had a seriously great hair day today. As if we didn’t already envy her luscious locks before now, she was sporting especially bouncy and voluminous curls this morning.
Don’t you just love the royal trio?
