It’s official: Kate Middleton can do no wrong. Reading about her recent visit to a London school is just giving us all the feels, you guys.
Elle reports that Middleton and her husband, Prince William, spent some time at the school as part of their work for Heads Together, an organization they founded with Prince Harry to raise awareness of mental health issues in school, veterans, homeless shelters and more. At the school, they listened to some of the students make presentations and then even met with some of them one on one.
“The princess said to me that I should always keep performing and I should never give up on my dreams,” 15-year-old Hannah said after her meeting with Middleton. “That is going to stay with me for the rest of my life.”
Elle says the topic of many of the presentations — and the reason for the royals’ visit — was the erasing of the stigma that surrounds conversations about mental health in schools.
“I think the fact that they came here is going to help a lot of people be able to speak up about how they’re feeling,” Hannah added.
Kaludia, 12, another student at the school, added that things like the royals’ visit to the school will help “a lot of people open their eyes to the fact that if you do feel worried and scared, it’s not unusual, and it’s OK to talk about.”
What do you think of the royal family’s work to make conversations about mental health more common?
