Following her introduction from Kate Silverton the Duchess of Cambridge delivered a speech thanking those who were there in helping to improve mental health in schools.

Dr Tristram Hunt, Director of the V&A Museum, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, patron of 100 Women in Finance's Philanthropic Initiatives, attend a Gala Dinner on February 13, 2019 in London, England.

And when the Duchess of Cambridge speaks, what she says is almost always relatable. She completed her look with a pair of diamond-drop earrings that once belonged to the late Princess Diana.

The Duchess of Cambridge has arrived at London's Victoria and Albert Museum, where she's attending a gala dinner.

Launched by Kate a year ago, the "Mentally Health Schools" program is one of the legacies of the royals' Heads Together campaign, which helps teachers and school leaders better support children's mental well-being.


The lovely jewels were the ideal finishing touch to Kate's embellished dress and took centre stage thanks to her elegant up-do.

She said: "I was very naive myself as a parent, of really just how important particularly the early years are for children's futures".

The Duchess, who spoke at a children's mental health conference, shared her own experience as a mother to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis to help draw attention to developing research into the early years.

Revealing what she learned about William and Kate's parenting skills, Anne said: "They get down on the child's level and speak to them eye to eye to make their child feel empowered".
