Prince William has an.. interesting (?) method to overcome his public speaking anxiety.

has been in the public eye essentially his entire life, but that doesn't mean he's always at ease giving speeches. Thankfully, the Duke of Cambridge has his own way of coping with any public speaking jitters — making sure he can't really see his audience. , the prince said that his eyesight has gotten worse in recent years, but added that it was actually helpful for him in overcoming his anxiety over talking in public.

"My eyesight started to tail off a little bit as I got older, and I didn’t use to wear contacts when I was working, so actually when I gave speeches I couldn’t see anyone’s face," he said. "And it helps, because it’s just a blur of faces and because you can't see anyone looking at you — I can see enough to read the paper and stuff like that — but I couldn’t actually see the whole room. And actually, that really helps with my anxiety.

It might not have been a coping strategy you've thought of, but honestly? Tuning out the room while speaking in public is basically the evolved version of picturing the audience in their underwear.
