“There's a lot of shame attached to mental illness. You feel like something's wrong with you,” Lady Gaga explained to the Prince.

“Even though it was hard, it was the best thing that could come out of my mental illness — was to share it with other people,” she said.

Prince William agreed that more people should speak out about their mental health and to be encouraged to seek help and to not suffer in silence.

"It’s time that everyone speaks up and really feels very normal about mental health. It’s the same as physical health. Everybody has mental health, and we shouldn’t be ashamed of it and just having a conversation with a friend or family member can really make such a difference,” the future King of Britain added.

And at the end of the video all the two promised to meet when she's in the UK in October later this year.
