Prince William is continuing to fight against bullying!
In honor of Stand Up to Bullying Day in the UK on July 5, the prince released a special video through the Diana Award charity. In the video, Prince William stated that bullying “is often stupid and cruel and can take any form. And the reach of technology means it can feel unrelenting leaving the victim feeling attacked, powerless and isolated.”
The prince, who has formed a cyberbullying task force as well, added, “It is our collective responsibility to be alert, and to be ready to challenge the behavior we see around us. We all have a role to play to ensure that we do not standby, but instead stand up, and put a stop to bullying. ”
Prince William stands tall in leading the Diana Award’s anti-bullying campaign, participating in workshops throughout the UK as kids learn how to fight against bullying as well. In this day in age, efforts like these are definitely necessary, and it’s good to see the prince taking the lead in his country!
