NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) With a help from a little girl, Prince Harry cut a ribbon to formally open this year's London Marathon Expo on Wednesday (April 19). Prince Harry, who is patron of the London Marathon Charitable Trust, handed out special edition Heads Together headbands at the expo, being held at the ExCeL London event venue. The royal, along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, spearhead the charity Heads Together which encourages people to discuss their mental health problems. The Prince stressed the importance of people talking about their mental health. It was a chance for him to speak after revealing to a British newspaper he sought counseling in his late twenties, seeking to deal with the death of his mother. He added it was only right for him to discuss his mental health after hearing other people's stories. The Prince's mother, Princess Diana, died in a car crash in Paris in 1997 when he was just 12. The London Marathon will take place on Sunday April 23.
