Earlier in the day William went to a London barbers to speak about mental health where he highlighted programmes that support men and their mental health.

First, Prince William visited patrons of the Pall Mall Barbers, who belong to a group called the "Lions Barber Collective", which raises awareness for suicide prevention.

Prince William is continuing Princess Diana's legacy. "[Prince William] is a total gentlemen and was a lot of fun".

The future king first visited The Passage in 1993 with his late mother, Princess Diana.

The objective of the Valentine's Day event, was to help build the confidence of men in their role as new dads. At one point, while changing a diaper, he joked that it was hard to dress a newborn because of "the buttons" one onesies.

Onto the all important nappy change.

"It's never straightforward", says The Duke of Cambridge.

The Duke of Cambridge talked about the difficulties he had changing nappies as he told new fathers they should expect "sleepless nights" after the birth of their children.

"We had a laugh, we talked about parenthood, our partners & more importantly how every dad particularly those that need it most can be reached through our #Futuredad course", he wrote.

"For His Royal Highness to further express his support for The Passage's work by becoming our royal patron is a tremendous honour, and a testament to how much he genuinely cares about this issue". "And I think one of the things is, ladies are a lot more giving and I think a lot more generous, whereas I think guys we kind of get into trying to get into making a success of whatever we are trying to do, we get into a rhythm and then children come along and it's like, 'Which way do I go now?'"

"That's what worries me about new fathers' health".

"For William, men's mental health is a big concern", she said.

The prince's endorsement of these charities will come as a huge boost to their respective causes, Murphy believes, as the young royals are increasingly looking to remove the stigma around mental health.

"He told them to be more aware of their feelings and that new dads can struggle with the basics of fatherhood".
