Prince William and Kate Middleton Reportedly Start New Project Named 'Headfit'
Prince William and Kate Middleton might have something in the making for both royal fans and any British citizens who would benefit from mental health care.
The Duke and Duchess are not slowing down amid the coronavirus pandemic. The two are reportedly getting legal work done and have just patented the word "HEADFIT."
A twitter account announced the news on Wednesday, sharing a photo of the alleged documents regarding the matter, including the trademark number.
Royal couple trademarks a word
According to Hello magazine, the details — namely the "software as a service" classification — indicate that the name foretells of a possible launch of a mobile application.
Another classification for the trademark further indicates that the term will be used in line with Prince Harry and Kate Middleton's mental health improvement campaign.
Harry and Kate push for mental heathl
Last month, the couple stressed the importance of mental health amid the coronavirus pandemic while speaking in support of advice from the Department of Health and Social Care.
In a statement, the pair said: "The last few weeks have been anxious and unsettling for everyone," adding, "We have to take time to support each other and find ways to look after our mental health," reported People.
The department recommended to continue connecting with loved ones via the internet, take up new hobbies, and stick to the usual routine as well as regular sleep schedules.

Catherine and I were proud to visit staff working at NHS 111, to pass on our personal thanks, along with those of my grandmother and father, to staff working around the clock to provide care and advice to those that need it most. • The last few weeks, and more recent days have been understandably concerning with the continuing spread of coronavirus. • But it’s at times like this when we realise just how much the NHS represents the very best of our country and society – people from all backgrounds and walks of life with different experiences and skills, pulling together for the common good. • Not only are NHS staff and emergency workers responding to the needs of the public, they – like the rest of us – are concerned about their families, friends and loved ones. • They need our support as much as we need theirs. • All of us have a part to play if we’re going to protect the most vulnerable. • That means acting on the latest expert advice, staying home if we or those we live with have symptoms, and avoiding non-essential contact to help reduce the spread of the virus. • — The Duke of Cambridge
The Cambridges get on the phone
The statement followed a telephone conversation William held earlier in March when he spoke to the CEO of Mind Charity, Paul Farmer. Meanwhile, Middleton spoke to the CEO of Place2Be, Catherine Roche.
Both organizations are part of the duke and duchess' Heads Together campaign. Furthermore, the couple issued a grant for Mind Charity last month to aid those suffering from mental health issues.
