The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have reminded people of the importance of looking after their mental health during the novel coronavirus lockdown.
During a rare TV interview, Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, reminded people of how crucial taking care of their mental health was.
The royal couple, who made the call while speaking to "BBC Breakfast," noted how frustrating it must be for people to be in a lockdown that was brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kate admitted that she still had the occasional guilt pangs that came with being a mother.
William stated that if they had to move forward with spending more time in lockdown, there would be an "ever-increasing need for people to look after their mental health and take it seriously."
He added that people would also have to know where to go in search of the much-needed support.
People observed that the duo then went on to address the availability of the Every Mind Matters mental health initiative that was aimed to help people take simple steps towards looking after their wellbeing and supporting others.
"We felt very strongly that now more than ever this was a vital tool and a vital service that people could easily access at home to guide them."
As it turned out, people's mental health wasn't the only thing that William and Kate addressed as Hello! Magazine reported that the couple revealed a secret that they kept from their children.
The pair disclosed that they had refrained from letting their eldest children know that it was time for the Easter holidays and have instead continued to homeschool them.
Although Kate admitted that she feels "very mean" for continuing lessons from their home, she jokingly warned the show's host, Tina Daheley, not to let the kids know.
During their conversation, the mother-one divulged that she had come to realize that it wasn't her responsibility to do everything. Despite that realization, Kate admitted that she still had the occasional guilt pangs that came with being a mother.
