Prince William shows heartwarming support for LGBTQ+ community ahead of London Pride
The Prince of Wales visited an iconic London venue The Royal Vauxhall Tavern to discuss LGBTQ and mental health
The Prince of Wales taking time out for the preparation for the forthcoming Singapore Earthsot Prize showed his heartwarming support for the LGBTQ+ community as he marked the end of Pride Month. William, 41, sat down with three volunteers from organisations, The Mix and Shout, at the iconic The Royal Vauxhall Tavern in south-east London – where the Prince’s late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, was once rumoured to have enjoyed a night out with Freddie Mercury.
Speaking prior to the film release this Friday, William joked: “I feel very underdressed today in the Royal Vauxhall Tavern. I should have come with some sequins or some glitter. Maybe next time I’ll bring it.”
Alexis Caught, who is also an author and podcast host specialising in mental health and wellness in the queer community, joyfully replied: ‘Come back on Friday night!’
The interview-style video also saw the royal in conversation Michael Lister and Sharvari Patil – both 20 – as he asked them about navigating mental health challenges.
The father-of-three emphasised the importance of ensuring everybody looks after their own “mental fitness’ and why checking in on others and supporting those in your community is vital.
