As he discussed mental fitness, Harry revealed that his only son has already started attending school. When asked by Alexi how he improved his own mental health, he explained: "Even if you do have 15 minutes slate of white space, I now put in about half an hour or 45 minutes in the morning when I'm like 'Okay, one of the kids has gone to school, the other one is taking a nap.' There's a break in our programme."

He then added how he uses his free time to better himself, revealing: "It's either for worksouts, taking the dog for a walk, get out into nature, maybe meditate."

But he was able to concede that self-care was "the first thing to drop away" when other commitments start popping up.

Harry hasn't discussed the education of his son, who will turn three later this year, but it must be an exciting time for the family for their eldest to be beginning on this journey.

The Duke has been vocal about the importance of mental health

The royal joined the company last year in March, and has previously revealed that moving forward they will be working "more with service members, veterans and their families".

In a Q&A with Fast Company last December, the Duke said: "I've actually discovered recently, courtesy of a chat with [BetterUp science board member] Adam Grant, that a lot of the job resignations you mention aren't all bad.

"In fact, it is a sign that with self-awareness comes the need for change. Many people around the world have been stuck in jobs that didn't bring them joy, and now they're putting their mental health and happiness first. This is something to be celebrated."

Serena has been friends with Harry's wife, Meghan, for a long time, with the Duchess regularly cheering on her BFF at tennis tournaments.
