Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Prince Harry had a busy week promoting their mental health charity, Heads Together. From Will FaceTiming with Lady Gaga to Kate admitting she felt isolated after giving birth, the family has been very open about their own struggles with mental illness. And all their efforts finally came together on Sunday at the Virgin London Marathon! Many of the race’s participants were running in honor of the royal family’s charity (see: anyone wearing a blue sweatband around their head), so the famous trio made sure to come out and cheer on their Heads Together team.
In the days leading up to the marathon, each royal shared their own battles with mental illness as part of their Heads Together campaign. Prince Harry even admitted that after the death of his mother, Princess Diana, he "shut down all of his emotions for 20 years." He said that the support of his brother and therapy eventually helped him heal. He certainly appeared to be in high spirits at the race!
The whole royal crew looked thrilled to be cheering on the race's runners. They were eager to shake hands and even snap selfies with participants!
The family didn't just stand idly by though. They also pitched in by handing out water to thirsty runners.
But they definitely got silly at times, like when Will tired to blow a horn in Kate's direction!
Aw, but he was sweet, too! The couple was spotted sharing a rare intimate moment as Will leaned in to give Kate a kiss on the head.
What do you think of the family's openness regarding mental health? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
