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 6 December. Time to Walk is an inspiring audio experience on Apple Watch for Fitness+ subscribers designed to encourage people to walk more often and reap the benefits from one of the healthiest activities. 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 prioritise mental health.
Time to Walk invites users to immerse themselves in a walk alongside some of the world’s most influential and interesting people as they share stories, photos and music. Each episode, ranging from 25 to 40 minutes, is recorded while the guest walks outside or in locations that are meaningful to them, and includes their reflections on lessons learned, meaningful memories, thoughts on purpose and gratitude, moments of levity and thought-provoking topics. Prince William will close the second season of Time to Walk. Throughout the two seasons, 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.
