This week however it was their career news that got the world talking as the couple announced the launch of their new ‘Heads Up’ season-long campaign, with the tagline ‘Changing Conversations Around Mental Health’.

It is just part of everyday life,’ read the caption alongside the video post of Prince William explaining the initiative. ‘This Sunday’s FA Community Shield between Liverpool and Manchester City will kick-off the #HeadsUp campaign 🗣 a season of activities aimed at driving the biggest ever conversation on mental health.
‘Heads Up – launched by The Football Association and @heads_together, and spearheaded by The Duke of Cambridge – will harness the influence and popularity of football to help show the nation that we all have mental health, and it is just as important as physical health.’
The post continued: ‘The campaign will strive to raise awareness, spark conversation and signpost support for those in need. Take a look at out Story or visit the link in our bio to find out.’
