It’s two people you don’t normally see chatting—Prince William and Lady Gaga.

The Duke of Cambridge and the popstar had a FaceTime call in which they talked candidly about mental illness. They discussed the importance of opening up about mental health difficulties, talking about emotions, and not feeling judged by others.

The 4-minute video shows the prince sitting at a desk at Kensington Palace, his London home, and talking via a laptop computer screen with Lady Gaga, who is in the kitchen of her home in Los Angeles.

The clip is by U.K. charity Heads Together. It is a campaign led by the Prince William, his wife Kate Middleton, as well as Prince Harry, to raise awareness on mental illness.

The minifilm is one of many in the  #oktosay series in which different people discuss their own mental health challenges.

Lady Gaga revealed earlier this year that she suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder after being sexually assaulted when she was 19.

Just the day before, the Daily Telegraph published an article about Prince Harry seeking counseling to deal with the grief over his mother’s death.
