Apple today announced that His Royal Highness Prince William will be the next Time to Walk guest on Apple Fitness+, closing the second season of the series with a special holiday episode that will be released on December 6.
In his Time to Walk episode, Prince William talks about the importance of keeping mentally fit. He also reflects on a lighthearted moment when he was drawn out of his comfort zone, the value of listening as a way to empower others, and an experience that led him to prioritize mental health.
Time to Walk is an audio experience on Apple Watch for Fitness+ subscribers designed to encourage users to walk more often and reap the benefits from one of the healthiest activities. Each episode, ranging from 25 to 40 minutes, is recorded while the celebrity walks outside or in locations that are meaningful to them.
So far, featured guests have included Dolly Parton, Anthony Joshua, Randall Park, Jane Fonda, Camila Cabello, Kurt Fearnley, Naomi Campbell, Draymond Green, Bebe Rexha, Min Jin Lee, Shawn Mendes, Stephen Fry, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Kesha, and more.
Apple says that it is making donations to three charities around the world chosen by Prince William that focus on mental health: Crisis Text Line in the U.S., Shout 85258 in the UK, and Lifeline in Australia. These charities provide free, confidential crisis support.
All Time to Walk episodes are available in the Workout app on Apple Watch with a Fitness+ subscription. Fitness+ subscribers can enjoy the episodes anytime, anywhere, with an Apple Watch and AirPods, or other Bluetooth-enabled headphones.
