William and Kate to attend mental health summit

William and Kate to attend mental health summit”

After making her official return to the royal calendar last week at an event at the Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden, she made her first joint appearance with husband Prince William in London today, at the Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit.

The Mental Health Summit is taking place over two days and will see political figures, leading academics, and policy makers from around the world come together to support better mental health for all.

They also visited a "friendship bench", which was a Zimbabwean project that aimed to teach older women in the country how to help those struggling with mental health with talks on the benches.

The Duchess, who returned from maternity leave last week, wore a lilac Emilia Wickstead fit and flare dress with her Gianvito Rossi 105 pumps in praline and a £595 Aspinal crocodile embossed cross body bag.

Kate studied art history at the University of St Andrews, where she met Prince William.

They also heard presentations on two case studies of active mental health programmes from Slovenia and the U.S. and visited an exhibition area.

The Duchess chose a dress by Emilia Wickstead, wore previously during her 2017 royal tour of Germany.

The couple, along with Prince Harry, have been credited with helping break down the stigma surrounding mental health by encouraging open conversations about it. This Friday, she will lead a number of senior royals at Princess Eugenie's lavish wedding at Windsor Castle, where George and Charlotte will feature in the tiny bridal party as pageboy and flowergirl.
