Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and heir to the British throne, recently took part in Apple Fitness+’s ‘Time To Walk’ series, which aims to inspire people to walk more.

In the programme, the Prince talked about his own routine, which includes a strong contribution from Australian rock giants AC/DC. William said the band’s classic song ‘Thunderstruck‘ is an integral part of his mornings:

“There’s nothing better than, on a Monday morning, when you’re a bit bleary-eyed after the weekend and trying to get yourself back into the grind of the week, listening to AC/DC, ‘Thunderstruck”

“I have to say the first time I put it on, and I’ve heard it a million times now, I was kind of, like, ‘Well, this is quite heavy for a Monday morning. But now, when I listen to it, it’s the best tonic for a Monday morning. It absolutely wakes you up, puts your week in the best mood possible, and you feel like you can take on anything and anyone. I’d imagine you’re going to walk quite fast listening to it, maybe with a skip in your step, with the headbanging. It’s a difficult song not to dance to or to nod along to.”
