The 32-year-old reflected on his decision to speak openly about the counselling he sought, as he visited the London Marathon Expo to officially open the event and meet charity runners. What better way to try to calm yourself down and overcome your self-doubt than a pep-talk, just days in advance, from the Duchess of Cambridge herself! She paired it with her favorite skinny jeans and Superga trainers combination.

The mother-of-two looked relaxed as she interacted with the athletes, who sported blue vests and the now familiar headbands bearing the charity's logo.

During the London Marathon engagement, Kate wrapped a Heads Together headband around the Kensington Palace postbox.

Later this week Heads Together will announce how everyone can join the campaign by wearing a headband online.

Ms Greene said: "As a large employer, we recognise that we have a big role to play in tackling the stigma surrounding mental health".

The Prince, who was just 12 when his Diana, Princess of Wales, was killed in a auto crash in Paris on August 31 1997, said of his mother: "I think from her perspective she would be overwhelmed and hugely encouraged by the fact that the United Kingdom - not known for wanting to talk about mental health issues - has suddenly got to this point".

Mr Lyons, from Edgbaston in Birmingham, said: "I never imagined in a million years I'd still be at it 37 years later".

He described Harry "as a real hero to a lot of people" for his candour and for opening up the discussion about mental health, prompting the Duchess to reply: "Absolutely".

He also left a special message to the #TeamHeadsTogether runners on a whiteboard, which read, "Good luck guys!" Kate and Prince Harry will be personally cheering them on from the sidelines.
