Her son, Prince George, recently started attending primary school, which was an overwhelming experience for the mum. Kate may have missed out on George’s first day at school due to severe morning sickness, but she has felt well enough lately to escort her darling son to school.
She shared, “As a mother getting used to leaving my own child at school gates, it’s clear to me that it takes a whole community to help raise a child.”
Kate expressed that we need to remain united when battling this issue, “Whether we’re school leaders, teachers, support staff or parents - we’re all in this together.”
The Duchess of Cambridge praised the forum, which aims to combat problems young people are facing today. She said, “When I came to this conference two years ago, I left with a real sense of energy and passion about what we could all achieve together.”
She admitted that she was looking forward to learning even more at the conference, which was held today in London.
Beating the stigma surrounding mental health is extremely important to Kate and husband Prince William.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have worked with Prince Harry to establish the Heads Together campaign. William recently revealed that Kate was the one behind the campaign.
He shared, “[It was Kate] who first realized that all three of us were working on mental health in our individual areas of focus. She had seen that at the core of adult issues like addiction and family breakdown, unresolved childhood mental health issues were often part of the problem.”
Kate’s determination to beat the poor view of mental health disorders is truly inspiring.
