Prince William is the narrator for a one-minute film, Take a Minute – starring many soccer stars – from Public Health England’s Every Mind Matters, the English Football Association (of which he is president), as well as Heads Together’s Heads Up campaign, according to CNN. Kickoff times for all thirty-two fixtures of the third round of the English FA Cup will be delayed by sixty seconds Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, so the mental illness public service announcement can be shown at stadiums in front of millions of fans. William and his brother, Prince Harry, have advocated for a number of mental health causes since the traumatic death of their mother, Princess Diana, in 1997.
