Following in his mother's footsteps...
Today marks the first ever National Stand Up To Bullying Day, and to commemorate the event spearheaded by The Diana Award, The Duke of Cambridge has recorded a video message to show his support.
The Diana Award was set up as ‘a lasting legacy to Princess Diana’s belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better’, running Anti-Bullying Campaigns supported by her sons The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
The award, praised for giving young people the skills, confidence and training to tackle all forms of bullying, recently commissioned a YouGov survey, revealing the shocking scale of bullying in society, with 64% of the 18-55 year-olds featured believing that bullying is widespread.
‘We’re urging everyone to get behind Stand Up To Bullying Day today’ she continued, ‘Make a pledge to do something different, to act differently and to offer kindness, whenever and wherever possible, because being a bystander, simply makes us a part of the problem.’
