Prince Harry joined a fundraising walk for veterans coping with the long-term psychological effects of war.

A former soldier himself, the Prince has made a lifelong-commitment to support veterans, seeking to help remove the stigma surrounding mental health.

"Mental health… it's a sensitive subject, I think, amongst a lot of people, but it doesn't need to be," says Harry.

He says people need to talk about it more to "get rid of the stigma".

"A lot of these guys have never had a chance to really talk about their feelings and emotions, and the worst thing is when you're in the forces, trying to talk about your issues and people not accepting them."
