“The Duchess will join pupils and their families in festive activities @afcevents to reflect on the positive progress made this term,” the message read.
“The visit to @afcevents reflects The Duchess’s continued interest in child mental health and providing early support to the whole family.”
Kate also visited the children’s mental health treatment charity in September, when she tested the SmartGym learning technology which helps to improve children’s attention and concentration.
The CEO of Anna Freud Centre, Peter Fonagy, talked with People magazine about the royal’s involvement in this cause, saying that Duchess Kate “is interested in mental health for real – that is to say that her interest is deep and genuine.”
And speaking of Christmas, Kate’s husband, Prince William, recently revealed that their son Prince George has figured out what this holiday is all about.
“George will be bouncing around like a rabbit,” William said before adding, “I think he will be extremely bouncy this year because he’s suddenly worked out what Christmas is all about. If I get any sleep on Christmas Eve it’ll be good.”
In November, Duchess Kate was asked during her visit to North Wales if she has begun preparations for Christmas and the mother-of-two responded, “I haven’t started yet, but George will be starting to talk about Christmas soon.”
Since ending her maternity leave, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has been focusing on causes connected to young people’s mental health.
