The Duke of Cambridge has teamed up with tech giant Apple to appear in a new 'audio walking experience', sharing his favourite memories and songs while talking a stroll in the Norfolk countryside. |
Listeners are able to immerse themselves in walks featured in the series, hearing the footsteps of the narrator and the sounds around them as they take the audience on a journey through locations important to them.
The future king was recorded as he toured his grandmother's 20,000 acre Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, starting at the Queen's home, Sandringham House, and then took in St Mary Magdalene Church, where the royals celebrate Christmas each year, before ending up at Anmer Hall, his and Kate's family home.
William has chosen three charities, offering support for those in crisis or emotional turmoil, to each receive a five-figure donation from Apple in light of Christmas being a challenging period for many and the positive impact walking has on mental health.
The organisations set to benefit as a result of the collaboration are Shout, the text helpline service developed by William's Royal Foundation, Crisis Text Line, which provides a similar service but globally, and the Australian charity Lifeline, which provides crisis support for people in emotional distress.
