Fans spot 'amazing' hidden detail in Prince William's documentary

An eagle-eyed royal fan has spotted a sweet hidden detail in Prince William’s new BBC documentary, which focused on sport and men’s mental health.

In a scene from the program, the Duke of Cambridge, 37, appears to be wearing a blue woven bracelet on his right wrist while speaking about his ‘Heads Up’ campaign and his experiences around mental health.

Twitter user Kayla Adams thought the colourful accessory looked a little familiar — and they were right! The bracelet seems to be the very same one presented to the Prince when he and his wife Kate were on tour in Pakistan over six months ago.

William and Kate, 38, visited SOS Village, an orphanage in Lahore during their October royal tour of the South Asian nation.

The royal couple spent the morning at the centre where children gifted them with friendship bracelets, a blue one for William and a pink one for Kate.

“It’s usually Kate who does all the little details that we barely catch, looks like it’s rubbing off on William too,” Kayla remarked.

“This is amazing,” commented a fellow Twitter user.

“Wow, good catch!” praised another.

Will’s mental health doco

Prince William’s BBC documentary aired on May 28 and followed his travels around the country as he seeks to use football to get more men to open up about mental health difficulties.

He launched the Heads Up campaign from the Royal Foundation’s Heads Together campaign, which was launched initially with his wife and his brother Prince Harry.

In the documentary, William met a team made up of fathers who had lost children, as well as top footballers like Joe Hart and now retired Marvin Sordell who were open about their own battles with mental health.

William acknowledged the pandemic and lockdown at the end of the documentary, as the situation changed and sport was cancelled.
