Prince William has revealed a list of the five people he turns to when he’s struggling – and they’re all in his close-knit family. The father-of-two revealed his support network during a “high five” exercise at an official engagement where he was addressing bullying.
Unsurprisingly, his wife and mother to his two children, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton featured in his list. William’s close relationship with younger brother Prince Harry means his sibling easily secured a spot in the top five too.
Also making the 33-year-old’s list, is his father Prince Charles and grandparents the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh. He also mentioned his beloved pet dog, Lupo as a source of support when times are tough.
William made the revelation in an effort to highlight the problem Britain’s schools are facing with LGBT and cyber-bullying. Both he and Kate have made it their mission to champion the emotional health of children and young people as was evidenced by Kate’s return to Royal duties from maternity leave on Thursday; the Duchess visited the Anna Freud Centre, which promotes mental health in children.
The #Back2School Anti-bullying campaign engagement at the Hammersmith Academy, was a particularly poignant one, as it was set up by The Diana Award – a legacy to William’s mother. Princess Diana believed strongly that young people have the power to change the world for the better.
