Prince William And Lady Gaga Get Personal In Discussion About Mental Health

By Mustafa Gatollari

In my opinion, in order to be a political figurehead, you have to be a little bit of a maniac, and a little bit callous to truly be good at your job. How else are you going to be able to make hard decisions and separate the human part of yourself when helping to decide the fate of millions of people?

At the end of the day, though, we're all humans and are susceptible to the same emotional hang-ups, just some people are more affected by certain things than others. 

So when Prince William revealed he struggles with his mental health, it garnered a lot of attention, particularly because the whole "stiff upper lip" English mentality doesn't allow for such candid talk about one's own feelings. And when it comes to a member of the royal family? Forget about it.
