The cover was photographed by Norman Jean Roy. Prince William was interviewed by Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair’s former spin doctor who now works as a journalist, broadcaster and mental heath campaigner.
The prince talks about topics pertaining to mental health as a part of the Heads Together initiative, created by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
This will be Prince William’s second time on the cover of a magazine in the space of a year. Last year, he appeared on the July cover of Attitude Magazine — a gay publication — where he was interviewed about his attitudes toward bullying.
Kensington Palace released images of the GQ cover as well as a black-and-white photograph featuring the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, lounging on a grassy knoll on the grounds of Kensington Palace.
On Sunday, the duke attended the FA Cup final at Wembley stadium in London. He laid a wreath to commemorate the people who died in the Manchester bombing. His message said: “We will never fear coming together to celebrate all that unites us. In memory of the friends and family taken from us in Manchester.”
