ICYMI: Prince William’s new program, Football, Prince William and Our Mental Health, aired last night on the BBC. The documentary film focused on the 37-year-old as he spoke with athletes about their experiences and the negative stigma men often face when it comes to mental health issues.
For the last few weeks, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s official Instagram account has been teasing the project by releasing preview videos. And one of the final clips shared a very special moment between the duke, duchess and their eldest son. In the video, we see Will, Kate and Prince George sitting in the stands of what seems to be a professional soccer (known as football in the U.K.) game.
“You know it’s weird because I’ve always loved football, but I love football more now than I’ve ever loved it before and I don’t know what it is whether it’s because I’m a parent now and I need football more in my life? I don’t know, maybe it is that,” William said in the clip. “We felt football was a really good way to reach hard-to-reach people to get them to talk about their feelings, to not let things get to a breaking point.”
Turns out (we did some investigating), the footage was shot when the trio attended a game at Carrow Road—which is a sporting arena located in Norwich, England—alongside Princess Charlotte back in 2019.
While there, the Cambridge family (sans Prince Louis) watched William’s favorite team Aston Villa defeat Norwich City, with a final score of 5 to 1. With a little encouragement from his dad, Prince George was seen cheering them on to victory.
More throwback videos, please.
