Kate Middleton had a great time visiting with the kids and faculty at the opening of the Kantor Centre of Excellence in London, England, on Wednesday.
The 37-year-old Duchess of Cambridge showed up in a lovely forest green long-sleeve Emilia Wickstead dress that she paired with nude Gianvito Rossi pumps, a Mulberry bag, Kiki McDonough diamond-and-opal earrings earrings and a simple necklace.
During the opening, Kate visited with children and participated in some educational activities. She was also photographed having a big laugh with Amy Herring, an advocate and former user of the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, where the Kantor Centre is located.
"The new centre brings leading practitioners, researchers and young people together for the first time, to improve mental health services for children and families," Kensington Palace shared on Twitter. "....The Duchess has been Patron of @AFNCCF since 2016, which reaches over 1m+ children in schools to try and reduce the burden of mental health difficulties children can face."
