    Kate Middleton visited the University of Derby to hear about how the pandemic has affected university life and students mental health. 

    This visit comes ahead of World Mental health day on Saturday 10th October and she spoke to first-year students about how they have been affected and how they’re coping.

    In Derby, she was brief by the CEO of Student Minds, Rosie Tressler, about the picture of mental health for the country as a whole. She also heard about the creation of Student Space: a new resource created to support students during the pandemic.

    She spoke to students Husna Hanif and Laura Oliver, both 18, how they had “kept busy” during lockdown – adding that it was “hard not seeing friends”. During the socially distanced meeting she asked if there was enough support at the university, Laura said, “there’s so much support”.

    During her visit to the campus, she looked particularly chic. As the seasons have turned colder, her style has changed too. Gone are the dresses and in are the trousers.

    Ahead of #WorldMentalHealthDay this Saturday, The Duchess of Cambridge visited students at @DerbyUni to hear how initiatives including peer mentoring are supporting students’ mental health during the pandemic. @studentmindsorg, the UK’s student mental health charity, say that the coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated existing challenges facing student mental health, in addition to creating new ones. Even before the onset of COVID-19, both the severity and prevalence of common mental health conditions experienced by young adults was on the increase. However, like the sports societies and nursing students here at Derby, universities are continuing to explore new ways to support their wellbeing. Students across England and Wales now have access to trusted support through the coronavirus pandemic via @studentmindsorg Student Space, a programme that helps students to find support that is available locally at their university, in addition to providing online resources and direct support by phone and text. The 24/7 text support available via Student Space 📱 is delivered in partnership with @GiveUsAShoutInsta, a legacy initiative from the Heads Together campaign and was incubated by The Royal Foundation ahead of its launch in 2019.

    Wearing smart black trousers with a chic checked coat from Massimo Dutti and a cashmere blue jumper from the brand too. Not forgetting her floral print mask too, one we have seen before from her favourite brand, Amaia kids. 

    But what we loved the most was her Personalised Gold Three Layered Disc Necklace from All the Falling Stars. Made from 14k gold, the charm necklace is the one she recently wore during her engagement to Battersea Park in September.

    It pays tribute to her three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, with each charm stamped with their initials. But, you guessed it… its sold out. Keep an eye on the website for new stock. Her earrings are from the brand too. 

    Both All The Falling Stars and Amaia are independent brands. Kate has been excellent at showing her support for small businesses during the coronavirus pandemic.
