Kate and William might just be the most adorable couple in the world. The Duke and Duchess, together with Prince Harry, have appeared in a short video for British mental health campaign “Heads Together.” And the results are sweet, funny, and probably the best thing you’ve seen all day.
“Heads Together” is a campaign featuring mental health charity runners for the 2017 London Marathon. The video shows clips of runners in Kensington Gardens, running toward the Palace. Kate, William and Harry stride out to greet the runners in casual shirts and jeans.
Kate and William both speak in the video, together with Harry. Then the fun begins with the royal three adorably trying on blue sweatbands and trying to pose for a “serious” photo. However, Kate gets the giggles and cannot keep a straight face. The clips show the Duchess’ charming personality and are just as cute as can be.
According to the Daily Mail,“leading the [Heads Together] campaign together will be the biggest single project that William, Kate and Harry have undertaken together.” The young royals are obviously very close, and the bond between Harry, Kate, and William is delightful. The three recently entertained President Obama and the First Lady at the Cambridge’s Kensington Palace apartment — Harry has also has an apartment in the building.
Kate and William both spoke in the video. The Duchess, “who is known for her commitment to raising awareness of mental wellbeing problems in young people,” had the first line.
“Mental health is just as important as physical health.”
Prince Harry, who was filmed playfully racing children in the gardens, said, “‘We can all play our part by talking and listening to each other and helping each other find support.'”
William added that we should “Get our Heads Together, and change the conversation on mental health.”
Harry was also involved in the 2016 London Marathon, which was run today. The prince is “Patron of ‘The London Marathon Charitable Trust’ ” and presented medals to the winning runners.
A spokesman for the royals made a statement about the trio’s support for the Head Together campaign.
“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… the three are ‘incredibly grateful to be working with charities who have achieved so much in the fight against the stigma that surrounds the issue.’ “
Kate and William recently returned from a successful tour of India and Bhutan, and have been spending family time with Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Kate looked great in the video, despite forgoing her usual stylish outfits for “a dressed-down look… wearing a breton top and skinny jeans.”
After trying on the light-blue charity headbands, Harry tried to take a picture of his big brother, but both princes ended up just giggling. William “looked slightly underwhelmed by the result, but Harry seemed pleased if his laughter was by anything to go by.”
Harry, Kate, and William make a valiant effort for the “serious” photo Harry suggested, before William burst out laughing. The young royals “managed a grave-looking pose for seconds before dissolving into fits of giggles. A second attempt didn’t go much better with Kate in particular struggling to maintain a straight face.” The Duchess trying, but failing, to suppress her happy smile is super-cute.
Kate and William have and exciting week ahead. On Friday, April 29, they celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary. While they will no doubt hold celebrations privately, the public won’t let them forget the joy of their magical, fairy-tale wedding. Five years and two children later, Kate and William are still going strong and as happy as ever.
