ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Prince William video called singer Lady Gaga as as part of a campaign to raise awareness on mental health. Video of the call released Tuesday (April 18) by the charity Heads Together. During the call the unlikely pair discussed the charity's mental health campaign, which is using the hashtag #oktosay. The UK Royal Family's Facebook page released the video initially, with Lady Gaga tweeting it out soon afterwards. In December 2016, the singer - known for her outlandish outfits as well as her music - wrote an open letter about her struggles with mental health. She also revealed she suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. In a statement on the Royal Family's Facebook page, it's revealed that Prince William was impressed with Lady Gaga and asked her to get involved with the campaign. William, his wife Katherine and brother Prince Harry are very involved with the charity, and say their aim is to end the stigma around talking about mental health.
