Prince William and Kate Middleton Zoomed With Dua Lipa to Share an Important Message
They joined several other celebrities for the Mental Health Minute.
Once again, Kate Middleton and Prince William are using a conference call to spread messages of unity during the coronavirus pandemic. On Monday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined other British celebrities, including Dua Lipa, in a message for the Mental Health Minute. It was broadcast on every U.K. radio station and reached over 20 million people.
For his segment, Prince William stated, "We're all connected, and sometimes just talking about how you're feeling can make a big difference. So right now, let's join together across the U.K. and reach out to someone." Kate Middleton, who was wearing a white collar and red top, echoed the sentiment saying, "If you're struggling, it's important to talk about it. Or, if you know someone who is acting differently, it's ok to ask how they are. Use this moment to send a message, because we're all connected."
