The Duchess of Cambridge opens up in support of Children’s Mental Health Week 2018.
“Childhood is an incredibly important moment in our lives,” said Middleton in a special message for her charity Place2Be. “It is the time when we explore our personalities, discover the potential that lies within us and learn how to be ourselves.”
The address was recorded at Reach Academy Feltham last month. “Our experience of the world at this early stage helps to shape who we become as adults, how we begin to feel comfortable in our own skin,” continued the British royal.
“Some children will be facing tougher challenges than others,” Middleton explained, “but I firmly believe that while we cannot change their circumstances, we can ensure that every child is given the best possible support to ensure they fulfill their true potential.”
“This is best achieved when we, the adults in their lives, work together to give children the emotional strength they need to face their futures and thrive.”
The theme of this year’s campaign is “Being Ourselves” and works to encourage children and young people to feel comfortable with who they are. The event runs from February 5 to 11.
