The Duchess of Cambridge has released a video message about the importance of talking openly with children, ahead of the UK's first Children's Mental Health Week.
Catherine has been a patron of mental health charity Place2Be since 2013, and used the message to stress that stigma around mental health means that many children do not get the help they need.
Always stylish, the Duchess chose a tiled-print silk shirt dress from high street brand Jaeger for the rare video message, which was recorded at Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital School in Beckenham, South London:

Last week the Duchess displayed her growing baby bump during a visit to the Spinnaker Tower at Portsmouth's GunWharf Quays.
Catherine, who is a keen sailor visited the Hampshire coast in support of the Ben Ainslie Racing trust - which encourages young people to take up the sport. For the whistle-stop Maritime tour Catherine settled on a nautical dress by favoured British designer Alice Temperley, which fittingly featured tiny white sailing boats.
