In her first appearance since announcing her third pregnancy, the Duchess of Cambridge has an important message for other parents about mental health.
Kate teams up with the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families to launch the “You’re Never Too Young To Talk About Mental Health” campaign.
The royal is seen urging parents to encourage their children to be “open about their feelings,” before a short animated film plays.
“It helps us all talk about our mental health, what to say and who to talk to when we have feelings that are too big to manage on our own; and how to listen when one of our friends is finding things difficult,” she explains.
The animation was co-produced by children and their teachers and will kick off the campaign, so children can learn life-long skills to help them cope with “big” and “small” feelings.
Recently, the Duchess missed Prince George’s first day of school because of hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition she has suffered from with both her pregnancies in the past, causing excessive nausea. The family of four, Prince William, George, Princess Charlotte and Kate announced their upcoming new addition earlier this month.
