The Duchess of Cambridge will visit children at two primary schools on her solo royal engagement.

Professor Jonathan Glazzard, who runs a United Kingdom first child mental health centre of excellence at Leeds Beckett University, is also advising families that one gadget-free day every week would be beneficial.

Kate, dressed in a bespoke £2,100 Eponine dress and £295 LK Bennett boots, brought with her a photograph of her family as she joined pupils sharing objects that represent "something that makes them feel good".

Middleton's visit to both Alperton and Lavender Primary School was in honor of Children's Mental Health Week.

Teenagers that spend more time on screens such as playing video games, watching TV, on social media and texting, are likely to be significantly unhappier than those who invest more time in non-screen activities like sport, reading books and face-to-face social interaction.

Kate took the image used for her 2018 Christmas card, showing her with the Duke of Cambridge and their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Last year, she marked the start of the poignant week with an impassioned video encouraging children to open up about their emotions. "At Lavender Primary School The Duchess of Cambridge found out more about the support offered to students, teachers and parents to help with mental wellbeing - including the daily mile, a simple away to get children outside for 15 mins every day to run or jog at their own pace", the post read.

Kate told art students that "It expresses your creativity and can help your confidence".

If the photo looks familiar to you, that's because it is! "Providing this support is the first step in helping kids build life-long coping skills".

"So much time and effort and energy goes into making these, it must be so appreciated by those who receive them", she said. Does it make you feel good?
