Kate Middleton: Duchess of Cambridge PICTURED visiting schools to highlight mental health

In addition to meeting with students, Kate was introduced to - get this - Herbie, the "school dog". One student brought goggles, another showed off football stickers, and one young girl adorably told Kate about her orange ball which she uses when she's stressed out. To say she looked fantastic would be an understatement.

"This is a photograph of my family", the Duchess of Cambridge told the young students.

"Schools and teachers don't have all the answers but we know they can play a special role which is why we have launched one of the biggest mental health trials in schools", he said.

She then asked adults to help guide youth in their mental health journey, saying: "Some children will be facing tougher challenges than others, 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". She also joined a food diary activity that highlighted the link between different foods and feelings.

The Duchess, who is mother to Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three and nine-month-old Prince Louis, will talk to the art and textiles teacher as well as pupils from the school.

During her visit to Alperton Community School, Kate will join a round-table discussion with teachers and will also meet a group of parents talking about the challenges of putting in place good routines regarding sleep, screen time, healthy eating and exercise.

The duchess donned a bright-green Eponine London dress, black tights and black lace-up heeled ankle boots by L.K. Bennett.
