They've come together in their biggest ever campaign yet...and Kate's not afraid to throw a few punches!

We've known this is a cause particularly close to Katherine's heart since she launched her campaign #YoungMindsMatter. 

Now the Duchess of Cambridge is being joined by her husband and brother-in-law in an extension of this, as they come get other to highlight their joint campaign #HeadsTogether.

The initiative cements several mental heath charities under one umbrella as they try and remove the stigma that so often surrounds mental health.

In the video Katherine Middleton addresses the viewers stating: "Mental health is just as important as physical health"

A belief she clearly shares with Prince Harry who emphasises that "The invisible injuries" suffered by so many service men and women are so often overlooked, during an interview with ABC News, adding "the stigma surrounding it is a massive issue. I want to reemphasize the point to people that it’s not a ticking time bomb."
