Because mental health has become one of the Prince WilliamHis favorite conversation topics, it’s no surprise he brought it up when he appeared on the season finale of the Apple Fitness + podcast, which went live on Monday. The most dramatic part of the conversation focuses on a day when he helps rescue a young boy from a horrific accident while working for the East Anglia air ambulance service. But during the 20-minute conversation, he shared a few unexpected tidbits about his family’s love of music.
During a walk around the Sandringham estate, where he kept a country house called Anmer Hall, he discussed his childhood memories of listening to music with Princess Diana and Prince Harry. “When I was little, Harry and I, we went to boarding school,” he said. “And my mother used to play all kinds of songs to ease the anxiety of going back to school. And one of the songs that I’ve missed so much and stuck with me all this time, and to this day, I still quite secretly enjoy, is Tina Turner‘s “The Best” because sitting in the backseat, singing away, feels like a real family moment. And my mother, she would drive along, singing beautifully. And we would even put the policeman in the car, and he would sing along from time to time. “
He added that the song still reminds him of his mother. “You will be singing and listening to music from the moment you enter the school gate, when they see you off. And, and that’s when the reality sinks in that you’re actually going back to school because before that, you’re drowning in songs. You’ll want to replay it just to preserve that family moment. “
To this day, he still incorporates music into his morning routine. “There’s nothing better than on a Monday morning, when you’re a little lethargic after the weekend and trying to get in the spirit of the week, listening to AC/DC, ‘Thunderstruck,’” he says. “I have to say the first time I wore it, and I’ve heard it a million times, I was like, ‘Wow, this Monday morning is pretty heavy.’ But now, when I hear it, it’s the best tonic for a Monday morning. It totally wakes you up, puts your whole week in the best possible mood, and you feel like you can take on anything and anyone. “I imagine you would walk pretty fast when you hear it, maybe with a jump of yours, with a head bang. This is a difficult song without dancing or nodding along. “
Now he includes his children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis tradition, and it’s teaching them how to share. “Most mornings there is a big fight between Charlotte and George over which song is played in the morning,” he said. “And now, I basically have to prioritize that one day someone does this, and another day it’s someone else’s turn. So George goes, then Charlotte takes her away. It’s loud noise for music. ”
According to her father, Charlotte is a particular fan of Shakira. “One of their favorite songs right now is Shakira, ‘Waka Waka’. There is a lot of hip movement. There are a lot of costumes,” he said. “In particular, Charlotte is running around the kitchen in dresses and ballet suits and everything. She was completely mad at Louis following her around trying to do the same thing. ”
On Monday, the Colombian pop star expressed her approval via Twitter.
He also further explained the importance of walking for the royal family and said that Prince Charles encourage him and Harry to take up this hobby. William said: “When I was growing up, my father loved to walk and to this day he still loves his walks and often tries to get Harry and me out of the house. “And we don’t really have any of that. But now, as you get older, you appreciate it a lot more and you see it as it is. ”
