Prince William, 41, showed his support for England soccer star Dele Alli, who recently opened up about his battle with abuse and addiction, by sending an encouraging letter to him on social media. And to ensure the Everton player knew the heartfelt letter came straight from him, the prince made sure to sign the note with his personal signature.
In a new tweet posted on the Prince and Princess of Wales’s Twitter page, Prince William dedicated a special message to the 27-year-old athlete.
Paired with a video snippet taken from the sit-down interview Alli conducted with The Overlap, the royal wrote, “Brave and inspirational @dele_official. Discussing mental health is not a sign of weakness. Let’s keep the conversation going.”
