Royal Family Turns To Instagram For Mental Health Campaign
Prince William, Kate and Prince Harry have enlisted help from a range of British celebrities to launch a series of “groundbreaking” films about mental health. The royal trio commissioned the short videos with the hope of lifting the stigma on mental health. Rapper Professor Green – real name Stephen Manderson – former cricketer Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff, comedienne Ruby Wax and former Downing Street spin doctor Alastair Campbell are among those who have starred in the videos. Former ITV news anchor Mark Austin is also seen discussing anorexia with his daughter Maddy.
