The BBC is to tackle the subject of Men’s Mental health in football with the help of HRH The Duke of Cambridge, the landmark documentary, A Royal Road to Wembley will have access to the Duke over the course of the year.
Viewers will follow The Duke of Cambridge as he works in partnership with the FA to launch an ambitious new plan to raise awareness of male mental fitness.
The film will follow the football season, from the first qualifying round in September all the way through to the FA Cup Final in May, and will show clubs up and down the country tackling mental health issues in their communities. It will tell the stories of men from across the country who have been affected by or are currently experiencing mental health issues.
The Duke of Cambridge has often spoken about the importance of Mental health, launching the Heads Together charity with his brother HRH The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry and his William’s The Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine. Their aim is to breakdown the stigma around mental health and helps young people talk about their mental health.
In 2017 Willam and Catherine surprised Radio1 DJ Adele Roberts who was running the London Marathon for the charity.
