Will, Kate and Harry Get Personal in Emotional Speech: ‘Mental Health Is Not a Dirty Word’
The royal trio marked World Mental Health Day on Monday by celebrating with those people who had been there for those who needed it at difficult times by joining them for a trip on the London Eye.
Kate — in a Kate Spade floral pink dress — joined William and Harry for a special party at County Hall, on the south bank of the River Thames in London, where they met members of the charities under their own Heads Together coalition – and each of the trio made a brief speech — before taking a ride on the landmark London Eye ferris wheel over the Thames.
And they will have had a stunning view in a crystal clear Fall day. Their focus was on mental first aid, with the royals highlighting people such as relatives, a colleague or friend who have provided some mental health support in crucial times.Chris Jackson/Getty Images
“They are interested in learning about the kind of support that helps and what information is available for people who might find themselves in a situation where they need to help someone or to direct them to professional services,” a spokesman for the royals said.
“These are issues Their Royal Highnesses are exploring with the Heads Together Charity Partners for possible future projects.”

Later Monday, the London Eye will be lit up in purple — like other prominent buildings around the world — to mark the day. The lighting up movement is in memory of cyberbullying victim Amanda Todd, a Canadian teen who committed suicide in 2012.
