Prince William has long advocated the importance of good mental health, and in light of this, the future King has recorded a special Time To Walk audio tour with Apple. During the audio tour, William has revealed to listeners how important music is to him, and how he passed the pastime on to his children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
Prince William’s Time To Walk audio tour will be streamed three times free of charge on Monday, December 6, on Apple Music 1, Apple Music’s global radio station.
William is expected to reveal several personal stories during the tour, which was recorded during a walk around the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk.
The Duke of Cambridge has included three of his favourite songs in the unprecedented interview, to get people walking for their mental health.
And William also speaks in detail about his and his three children’s love of listening to music, particularly with regards to his daughter Princess Charlotte.
William said during the audio tour: “One of the songs that the children are loving at the moment is Shakira, Waka Waka.
“There’s a lot of hip movements going along with a lot of dressing up.
“Charlotte particularly is running around the kitchen, in her dresses and ballet stuff.
“She goes completely crazy with Louis following her around trying to do the same thing.”
During the tour, William said he was “amazed” how his children had inherited his family’s love of music, a passion known to be shared by several royals, including Prince Charles.
William added that “most mornings there’s a massive fight between Charlotte and George as to what song is played in the morning”.
He revealed his own personal wake-up tune was Thunderstruck by AC/DC, adding there was “nothing better” to wake up to on a Monday morning.
And during the audio tour, William also touched upon how important music was to him as a child.

Poignantly he said that one song in particular, Tina Turner’s The Best, still reminded of his late mother Princess Diana, who died when William was 15.
Along with a few other songs, Diana would play the iconic tune as she drove William and Prince Harry to school, to help them deal with nerves.
Sometimes Diana would even get the policeman who accompanied them to sing along with the tunes.
William said of the memories: “Because sitting in the backseat singing away, it felt like a real family moment.
“My mother, she’d be driving along singing at the top of her voice and we’d even get the policeman in the car, he’d be occasionally singing along as well.”
He added: “You’d be singing and listening to music right the way up to the gates of school when they dropped you off and that’s when reality kind of sunk in – you really were going back to school.
“Because before that you’re lost in songs – want to play it again, just to keep that family moment going.
“And when I listen to it now it takes me back to those car rides and brings back lots of memories of my mother.”
