Kate Middleton: Motherhood can be 'lonely at times'

Prince Harry spoke this week about being close to a mental breakdown on many occasions after the death of his mother, Princess Diana, because he bottled up his emotions.

The British royals discussed losing mom Princess Diana with William's wife, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, in a video for a new Heads Together campaign promoting mental health. "You feel like something it's wrong with you", Lady Gaga said to Prince William. "But, you know, even Harry and I over the years have not talked enough about our mother".

Radio 1 listeners were in for quite a shock yesterday when Prince William And Kate Middleton made a surprise appearance on DJ Scott Mills' afternoon show. And she says that can make being a new mom worse because you're reticent to ask others for help. "And when you start thinking like that, it can be really damaging". The conversation is part of their Heads Together campaign to prioritize mental health and end stigma around seeking help for mental health issues. We've tried making things, now that we've got grandchildren around we've tried that and it always goes down really well. Kate Middleton, the mother of George and Charlotte, begins by tackling her role as mom.

"I remember the first few days with little George, you have no idea really what you're doing no matter how many books you read, nothing can prepare you for it".

William, Kate and Harry stood at mile 22 of the London Marathon to hand out water - and then get squirted with it.

On Monday, Prince Harry revealed in an interview with the "Daily Telegraph", that he had sought counselling after failing to properly address his grief over his mother's death. It ain't going to change it, it ain't going to bring her back.

The film captures a conversation between Their Royal Highnesses that occurred at Kensington Palace as they looked ahead to this weekend's London Marathon and reflected on the growth of the campaign over the past year.

Prince William was seen speaking to Pippa Creasy and her two grown-up children Will and Henrietta, who are all running for CALM, a charity partner of Heads Together.

The trio are sitting in what appears to be the Kensington Palace garden, involved in a very heady discussion about mental health. "You are so full of anxiety and the shakes that you can barely think, but it was like saying, 'This is a part of me and that's okay'".
