The 35-year-old recently visited the city and during his trip Prince William listened in on a discussion at the Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust's Life Rooms, which is the home of the Recovery College, and hopes to educate people about mental health.

The Kensington Palace Instagram account shared the details of William's trip on their photo-sharing site.

Alongside an image of William - who has four-year-old son Prince George and two-year-old daughter Princess Charlotte with his wife Duchess Catherine, who is pregnant with their third child - sat beside other members, it read: "During HRH's visit to Liverpool, The Duke sat in on a group coaching session at the Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust's Life Rooms in Walton.

Life Rooms is a hub and home for the Recovery College, which has helped 16,000 since it first opened. The centre aims to challenge the stigma around mental health and promotes positive mental health, learning and wellbeing. (sic)."

William became aware of the Life Rooms earlier this year during his campaigning for the Heads Together organisation, which he co-founded with his younger brother Prince Harry and Catherine.

The post continued: "Life Rooms provide group and 1-2-1 advice sessions on finances, addiction, and employment and offer a space for community groups to meet. Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust is one of the leading mental health trusts in the country. Their work became known to HRH during the @heads_together campaign this year. (sic)."

William's "last stop" during his trip to Liverpool saw him head to the Guinea Gap Leisure Centre where he watched the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC), English Schools Swimming Association (ESSA) and the Swim England groups practice, after enjoying a conversation with the star.

A separate image of William standing poolside was also shared on the social media page, and was captioned: "In the last stop during his day around Liverpool, The Duke of Cambridge visited the Guinea Gap Leisure Centre to watch activities involving three related patronages of His Royal Highness - the British Sub-Aqua Club (BSAC), English Schools Swimming Association (ESSA) and Swim England (formally Amateur Swimming Association). After chatting to divers, children from Wallasey Swimming Club showcased Swim England's 'Learn to Swim' programme and BSAC's snorkeling and diving activities. Before leaving, there was just enough time for The Duke to catch the ESSA water polo session in action. (sic)."
