The Prince and Princess of Wales have teased the release of a new film to mark Mental Health Awareness Week.

Posting a 14-second trailer to their social media pages, the pair said: “This #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek we’ve brought together the inspirational Sam Stables from We Are Farming Minds and the brilliant Farmer Will for a very special film.

“Spending a day together on Sam’s farm in Hereford they chatted about mental health in the farming community, finding support and the Duchy of Cornwall’s Mental Health Strategy. Watch the film on YouTube from 12.30pm BST today.”

William and Kate met Sam when they visited his farm last September and launched the Duchy’s Mental Health Strategy. The Duchy is working with Sam to expand his charity’s reach.

The royal couple do not feature in the film.

Kate and William have long championed mental health and often speak out it’s just as important as physical health.

In 2017 they launched the Heads Together campaign, which convened eight charity partners with one voice, encouraged more people in the UK to talk openly about mental health than ever before, and more people started accessing services as a result.

Royal fans were quick to heap praise on the couple for focusing on mental wellbeing in the farming community.

One person wrote: “Breaking barriers and reducing stigma [clapping emojis].”

Another said: “Rural and remote farming brings enormous mental health challenges. Always good to see awareness.”

A third wrote: “Breaking barriers and nurturing mental well-being in the heart of the farm!”
