Lately, Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mother has been focusing on the fight against the stigma surrounding mental health issues among young people.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, wishes to raise awareness around children’s health problems, and for that reason the royal, 34, will collaborate with the Huffington Post UK as guest editor for a day in mid-February.
Kensington Palace announced the Duchess’ collaboration on its official Twitter page on Friday, January 15.

A team of journalists from The Huffington Post UK is set to be invited at the Palace by Prince William’s wife, who will draw attention to the outstanding work carried out by researchers, teachers, parents and many others who have been involved in helping raising awareness regarding children’s mental health issues.
Duchess Kate has been a Royal Patron of Place2Be since 2013, a mental health charity that offers counselling to children in schools.
In September the British royal also visited the Anna Freud Centre, a children’s mental health treatment charity, and the Centre CEO, Peter Fonagy, talked with People magazine about the Duchess’ involvement in this domain.
“She is interested in mental health for real – that is to say that her interest is deep and genuine,” Fonagy told the publication.
Another Middleton family member, Pippa, has had a taste of journalism as Kate’s little sister has written articles for Vanity Fair and the Daily Telegraph. Her mother, Carole Middleton, collaborated with Little London magazine as a contributing editor.
