That Peter Crouch Podcast

In support of the Heads Up campaign, The Duke of Cambridge joined ex-professional footballer Peter Crouch to talk mental health and football in a special episode of BBC Radio Five Live’s That Peter Crouch Podcast.

In the ‘That Prince William Episode’, the podcast sees His Royal Highness, Peter Crouch, Tom Fordyce and Chris Stark discuss the importance of talking about mental health, and the role that football can play in supporting people’s mental wellbeing.

Ahead of the ‘Heads Up FA Cup Final’ on Saturday, the conversation also covers the return of football during the coronavirus pandemic, and The Duke’s experiences of playing football and watching matches as a fan. The episode was recorded in two parts – at Kensington Palace in March, and via video call earlier this month.
