“I am delighted to be able to join you today and I am particularly pleased that this week’s service is focused on the importance of positive mental health and wellbeing,” William said.

“Mental health is an issue Catherine and I care passionately about, and we are determined to all we can to remove the stigma attached to it."

William went on to address how no one should worry about "burdening other people" or feel afraid to start a conversation during the coronavirus pandemic.

"The impact of coronavirus has been far-reaching, and we shouldn’t underestimate its effects on us and on those in our families and communities," he said.

"Whether people have lost or are worrying about loved ones, struggling with isolating at home, feeling anxious about job security, or working on the front line, now more than ever it is important that we talk to one another about issues we’re struggling with and it is okay to not feel okay.”

William continued, "Catherine and I have both found great comfort in the wonderful acts of kindness we have seen happening right across the nation.

"The Christian teachings of faith, hope and love could not be more appropriate as we all try to navigate our way through these uncertain times."
