During a pre-recorded segment of Newsbeat, the royal couple shared details of their plans to take over the radio on Tuesday at 12.45pm. "Newsbeat will sound slightly different," teased Princess Kate.

Prince William added: "As part of World Mental Health Day, Catherine and I have recorded a special programme, taking over the radio to talk about the importance of mental health."

"You can be living one life one minute and something massively changes, and you realise you don't necessarily have the tools or the experience to be able to tackle that."

Touching on the variety of coping mechanisms, Kate added: "There's no right or wrong, different things will work for different people."
