Prince William’s tears fear
Prince William was sacred he’d be in “floods of tears” on a charity visit yesterday (25.08.16).
The 34-year-old royal – who is second in line to the British throne – visited Young Minds youth mental health charity with wife Duchess Catherine and when told they would be listening in to real calls to its helpline from concerned parents, William asked for “an easy one”.
The air ambulance pilot told the volunteers at their London headquarters: “I’m carrying a lot of things at the moment. I’ll be in floods of tears at the end otherwise.
“I’ve had too many sad families with the air ambulance so I can’t have any more stuff. Something on the lower level if I can.”
William has been a part-time helicopter pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) since July 2015, having previously served with RAF search and rescue and donates his salary in full to charity.
Over the past year, William and Catherine have focused much of their public work on promoting the emotional and psychological well-being of children, teenagers and adults.
Young Minds is a member of the Heads Together campaign, which is a group of existing charities brought together by the couple and Prince Harry to tackle a problem that often brings stigma.
