Kate Middleton Looks Gorgeous While Helping Save Children's Lives -- All in a Day's Work!
By John Boone
The Duchess of Cambridge is looking good while doing good -- per usual.
Kate Middleton stepped out to help launch Children's Mental Health Week with Place2Be, a U.K. charity that focuses on in-school support for kids. Children's Mental Health Week kicks off today and runs until Feb. 14.
"Every child deserves to grow up knowing their potential and feeling confident that they won't fall at the first hurdle, that they cope with life's setbacks," she explains in a video for the charity. "This resilience, our ability to deal with stressful situations is something we begin to learn in childhood as we respond to each challenge and problem life presents."
The 34-year-old duchess wore a royal blue jacket and matching skirt for her visit with a handful of elementary schoolers. During one sweet moment, she asked the kids whether they talk about their emotions with their friends:
Kate: "Do you all talk to your friends about your feelings too?"
Children: "Yes, sometimes."
Kate: "Sometimes? Are they helpful as well, do they help you? Sometimes it does help, doesn't it? But other times there are things you probably feel you don't want to share with your friends but at least you've got an adult to..."
"While we cannot always change a child's circumstances, we can give them the tools to cope and to thrive. With early support, they can learn to manage their emotions and feelings and know when to seek help," Middleton later states. "A child who has overcome challenges with proper emotional support will emerge stronger."
The mother of 2-year-old Prince George and 9-month-old Princess Charlotte concluded by saying, "By ensuring every child is given the emotional support they need, we are giving them a firm foundation for the happy, healthy future they deserve."
Over the weekend, the duchess also attended the 75th anniversary of the Royal Air Force Air Cadets, where she revealed what Prince George wants to be when he grows up. Find out in the video below.
