Lady Gaga’s Own Struggles
“In my life I go, ‘Oh my goodness, look at all these beautiful wonderful things that I have, I should be so happy,’ but you can’t help it if you wake up in the morning and you are so tired and you are so sad and you are so full of anxiety that you can barely think,” she says. Williams invited Gaga to participate after he read an open letter she issued through her Born This Way Foundation in which she revealed a sexual assault at 19 that left her with PTSD: http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop/7761127/lady-gaga-facetime-prince-william-mental-health

Not Hiding Anymore
Lady Gaga felt that people facing mental health challenges are “not hiding anymore.”. William agrees to that but stresses to promote it more within the family. This is why he and his wife, Kate are hoping to encourage their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, to grow up feeling comfortable talking openly about their feelings. The Prince talks from first hand experience. His brother, Prince Harry was too affected by the death of their mother, Princess Diana.
