The label sounds nice, but it can be a burden for people who didn't sign up to be heroes

Entitled Football, Prince William, and Our Mental Health, much of the documentary focuses on some of the pivotal struggles from Prince Williams own life—from the tragic loss of his mother Princess Diana to his fears about becoming a father and his supportive relationship with wife Kate Middleton.
