The six-minute clip – which was uploaded to the Prince and Princess of Wales’ YouTube account today – begins with the royal arriving at Dorney Lake in Windsor to meet members of HMS Ordaius.
The campaign was established in 2019 to provide mental health support to submariners.
The father of three, 40, met Lieutenant Commander Hugo Mitchell-Heggs and his team, who are crossing the Atlantic in their new eco-friendly boat this December.
After being introduced to the group, Prince William happily stuck in some rowing – but joked that he might have accidentally ‘slapped paddle’ with one of the pros.
Royal fans have swooned over Prince William’s good looks after the Prince of Wales, 40, appeared in a video released on Instagram by Kensington Palace to mark Mental Health Awareness Week.
For the engagement, William wore a blue Royal Navy hoodie, black shorts and a pair of sunglasses.
Once they had completed a few laps of the lake, the group returned to the rowing club at Eton College, where they discussed their coping methods at work.
Although the mental health of the crew was a topic of conversation, Instagram followers of the Prince and Princess of Wales were distracted by William’s good looks.
William Rowing’s clip has already garnered over 43,880 ‘likes’ on Instagram and countless followers have left wonderful comments.

Another added: ‘Couldn’t help but thinking, “hello daddy long legs!”‘
‘Ah yes Her Royal Hotness does it again,’ echoed a third.
‘Prince William is very handsome,’ replied the fourth.

‘Sleek operator = Prince William,’ said a fifth.
Sailing with them, William asked: ‘Was it the physical toll or the mental toll? What was the most difficult task for you guys?’
Callum replied: ‘The physical toll is one of those things where every day everything gets a little harder.
‘But what we really have to work on is how we work together as a team and that’s the mental challenge.’
Hugo then added: ‘[It’s] Understanding and showing sympathy for each other’s weaknesses.
‘That’s how we overcame real psychological barriers and were really, really open with our feelings. I think it was something we were really good at.
As a result of their various challenges, Hugo’s team has helped raise over £600,000 for military charities and organizations that support veterans and their families.
William also asked the team how they deal with anxiety lately, even as the team raced against 42 other teams to cross the Atlantic — where they braved 40-foot waves and tropical storms. faced

Showing his understanding of their demanding professions, William added: ‘The submarine service, you have to have a certain mindset to do your job.
‘You’ve been in a metal tube for months. Many of the pleasures of your life are far away – you have no sunshine or fresh air.’
Hugo said: ‘You go from a civilian into this whole new world where you’re dealing with shipmates and a whole new dynamic.’
Speaking from her own experience, Shahi said: ‘It’s important to understand our support network because many people don’t have a support network.
‘I think in the military, we are very good at building close relationships and feel that the only way we can get out of this is to help each other.’
