The Duke of Cambridge will take listeners on a journey as he appears on a special episode of Apple Fitness+ series, Time To Walk, on Monday.

Prince William, 39, will speak candidly as he walks through the Sandringham estate in Norfolk – from Sandringham House, past St. Mary Magdalene Church (where the royals celebrate Christmas), and ending eventually in Anmer.

The father-of-three is encouraging people to take some time out and walk for their mental health over the Christmas period.

During the episode, he talks about the importance of keeping mentally fit, reflects on a light-hearted moment when he was drawn out of his comfort zone, the value of listening as a way to empower others, and an experience that led him to prioritise mental health. And in a rare move, William also chooses three of his favourite songs, and explains why they are important to him.
