In his speech, Prince William said he really worries about unrealistic standards of beauty promoted by numerous fashion brands. This problem is more relevant to teenagers who tend to follow hyperbolized beauty standards harmful to their health and mental condition.

I worry for you girls. The touched-up pictures are not real. Don’t try to recreate them or think that’s what you’ve got to aim for.

The Duke of Cambridge speaks about cyberbullying

William has a strict point of view considering the influence of the Internet and social media on the young minds. He is confident that mental health is as important as physical health, and when kids spend most of their time in the web, it may lead to very sad consequences for their well-being.

Don’t spend all day online. Seriously, don’t. For your mental health, get outside, come away from the screen.
