UK royal Kate visits school, discusses mental health
Britain’s Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, visited a primary school in Oxford on Tuesday (March 6) to learn about the work of a charity project that supports the emotional health of students and their families.
Kate’s husband Prince William, and his younger brother Prince Harry have made campaigning about mental health one of their priorities. Last year, the princes were widely praised for leading a campaign to tackle the stigma of mental health illness and speaking out about how they had personally suffered following the death of their mother Princess Diana in a Paris car crash in 1997.
Kate was greeted by cheering children waving flags at the Pegasus Primary School in Oxford, which is part of a project with the Family Links charity that supports the emotional health of children, parents, families, schools and workplaces.
She discussed issues such as bullying with a group of students and also met with teachers and families supported by charity.
