Kate Middleton’s mission to raise awareness about children’s mental health continues in Scotland


The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, visited Scotland on Wednesday and first stopped by St Catherine’s Primary School in Edinburgh, where her little sister Pippa had been a student.

Kate also took the opportunity to observe how the charity Place2Be, of which she has been the Royal Patron since 2013, works to eradicate mental health issues in Scotland.

Then, Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mother, 34, known in Scotland as the Countess of Strathearn, joined a group of children at Wester Hailes Education Centre, at another one of her charities, The Art Room, which seeks to increase children’s self-esteem through art.

Kensington Palace shared pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge visiting both schools on its official Twitter account.

Later, Kate put aside the elegant outfit for a sportier one, as she joined Andy Murray’s mother, Judy, at her Tennis On The Road roadshow at Craigmount High School for a tennis workshop coaching session.

The Palace also posted photos of Kate showing her tennis skills.

The British Royal has been the patron of The Art Room since January 2012.
