TODAY the Duchess of Cambridge proved she was well and truly back to her royal duties with her second public appearance in less than a day.
The Duchess of Cambridge called on one of her charities, Place2Be, on Wednesday morning as she attended the School Leaders Forum in London. Kate, who showed off a glimpse of her baby bump, opened the conference and joined delegates in discussing children's mental health, in particular how schools can help tackle problems in early life.
Early intervention school support for children's mental health has been a key priority for Kate, who is expecting her third child with husband Prince William. The couple have two children together – Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two – and have been very open in how they would want their children to speak openly about their emotions and any struggles.
The royal's autumn diary is filling up fast – a sure sign that Kate is well enough to carry out royal duties. She had to take a break from engagements in September and October as she suffered from severe morning sickness, but the mum-of-two appears to be on the mend. Next week, Kate will visit the Hornsey Road Children's Centre in London. She had been due to visit in early September but cancelled due to her sickness.
