Prince William and Lady Gaga joined forces to fight the stigma over mental health problems. In a new video shared on The Royal Family’s official Facebook page on Tuesday, fans can see the Duke of Cambridge and the 31-year-old singer-songwriter talking in a FaceTime call. The pop superstar was in her Los Angeles home while the husband of Kate Middleton was sitting in his study area at Kensington Palace. From there, she opened up about what she has been through while suffering a mental illness.

The talk

Prince William believes that it is the perfect time for everyone to speak up about their mental health. “It’s the same as physical health — everybody has mental health, and we shouldn’t feel ashamed of it,” he said.

The 34-year-old prince explained that just talking to a family member or a friend could help a lot. Lady Gaga, on the other hand, added that talking about mental state casually could help people feel like they are not hiding their real condition and help end the stigma.

The 'OK to Say' series

Meanwhile, the new Facebook video is an addition to The Royal Family’s series featuring different people talking about their mental health and the challenges that they have been through. Lady Gaga herself even praised the clips and the people in it, saying that they all have beautiful stories. She, too, discussed her own struggles while living with post-traumatic stress disorder.

The “Million Reasons” singer told Prince William her experience of waking up every morning feeling tired and sad, although she is trying hard to be happy.

Being full of anxiety greatly affects her as well.

The eldest son of the late Princess Diana and Prince Charles then asked the “American Horror Story” star to join them in fighting the stigma about mental illness. This is after she revealed an open letter through her Born This Way Foundation about her PTSD following the sexual assault she experienced when she was only 19 years old.

Lady Gaga and Prince William then decided to continue working together. In fact, they are already planning to meet each other, as she is set to visit the United Kingdom in October.
