Prince William speaks with Lady Gaga on mental health

19 April, 2017, 09:38 | Author: Evan Mason

In the clip, they discuss powerful films that have been released - showing people from all walks of life discussing their mental health challenges.

The conversation between the two was part of the Heads Together campaign, an effort led by William, his wife, Princess Kate and Prince Harry.

William was 15 years old and Harry just 12 when she was killed in a auto crash in Paris on August 31 1997.

Lady Gaga and Prince William sat down via the old interweb to discuss an issue that heavily impacts everyone on the planet, mental health.

As William explained, after finding out that Lady Gaga suffers from PTSD, he knew he wanted to work with her to help encourage people to talk about the things that they might otherwise keep inside, like she did.

And he praised her bravery in revealing through an open letter a year ago that she lives with post-traumatic stress disorder.

The 32-year-old prince acknowledged that he spent almost 20 years "not thinking" about the death of his mother, Princess Diana, and that he only got help after two years of "total chaos".

The comments by Queen Elizabeth's grandson came a day after his younger brother Prince Harry spoke about his struggles coping with the loss of his mother Diana in an unusually revealing interview.

"But it was like saying, this is a part of me and that's ok". I'm a little bit nervous.

Gaga and William, who have both been involved in initiatives to combat stigma surrounding mental illness, had a frank cross-pond chat that was uploaded to Twitter very early this morning (April 18).

Previously, Harry has said, "None of us can get through mental health difficulties without being willing to have a conversation, and being able to admit that we might need some help". "You feel like something it's wrong with you", Gaga says in the video, speaking from the kitchen of her Los Angeles home.

Surprisingly, the Duke of Cambridge was joined by Lady Gaga, via FaceTime.

Prince William reassured Gaga that that it was important to "break open the fear and taboo" about speaking out.

Prince Harry revealed that he went to counselling to deal with the grief caused by his mother Diana's death in a courageous interview with The Telegraph.

In an interview with Bryony Gordon for her podcast Mad World, he said her death had "a quite serious effect" on his mental health, leading to grief and anxiety he didn't address until his late 20s.
