Kate Middleton Expresses Concern About the Mental Well-Being of Children in a Video

In a rare video delivered by the Duchess of Cambridge, she highlighted the significance of the difficulties faced by children.

In the video-message, which was recorded for the abutment of UK’s first Children’s Mental Health Week, the 33-year-old Duchess says that she and her husband Prince William have seen children fighting hard to contend with family breakdown, bereavement, bullying and a lot of other issues, which can lead to anxiety, fear, depression, addiction and self-harm.


Middleton, who is soon to give birth to her second child, said the disgrace surrounding mental health means that a lot of little children do not get the help they require so badly, and this facet calls for a change and should be changed at the earliest.

This video was made for Place2Be, an organization that provides emotional help and support in schools.

“Through Place2Be I have seen the benefits of offering children support for their mental health in the safety of the school environment,” the Duchess said, who has been a royal patron of the charity since 2013.

“Both William and I sincerely believe that early action can prevent problems in childhood from turning into larger ones later in life,” Middleton added.

Middleton recorded the video-message at Bethlem and Maudsley Hospital School in Beckenham in a bid to launch a seven-day campaign by the charity.

Looking gorgeous as always, the expectant mother’s face was beaming. She is about to give birth to her second baby in April.
