The Duchess of Cambridge was greeted by an excitable pup (right) as she arrived at Lavender Primary School in Enfield this morning, the first of two engagements on Tuesday marking Children's Mental Health Week.

Commenting on Kate's admission she does art with her children she said: "So she's a very hands on mum who understands about being creative - it's just brilliant and lovely to hear that and as a mother myself I know exactly what that means".

One fashion fan pointed it out on Twitter and once they said it, you couldn't un-see it.

During the day, Kate was there to support one of her charities, Place2Be which works in schools to provide guidance to pupils, family, teachers and staff and foster their emotional wellbeing.

"These are my children and this is my husband". She brought a picture of her family - their 2018 Christmas card photo, which features Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 9 months, posing happily along with their parents - as her item! And we like playing outside together and spending lots of time together as a family.

"I am very pleased that because of our strong financial management, Labour-led MK Council is able to propose extra funding to help improve access to mental health services for children in MK".

The scheme will pilot in 370 primary and secondary schools in the United Kingdom to test how the different approaches can help improve children's mental health. Meanwhile, we wonder what Kate thinks about her bright green jumper being called "world's angriest dress" ever.

State of the Union 2019: What to expect
Despite the objections of some advisers, Mr Trump announced in December that he was withdrawing U.S. forces in Syria. The White House tonight announced several special guests attending the State of the Union at the Capitol tomorrow.

Before departing Lavender Primary School, Her Royal Highness watched students taking part in the Daily Mile Challenge outdoors, and met the school dog, Herbie.

Middleton talks about her family quite a bit on outings - why wouldn't she?

Kate also met with Andria Zafirakou, the first United Kingdom teacher to ever be awarded the Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize, and attended a roundtable discussion with teachers and educators about how they help students' mental health and wellbeing.

While most children say they get to sleep within 30 minutes of going to bed, for 20% it takes between one and two hours before they doze off and 8% take over two hours.

The trial, which will have instructors teach mental health and well being techniques to students, marks the beginning of Children's Mental Health Week and is scheduled to run until 2021.

It's hoped that once the study is complete, schools and the Government will have evidence of what works best for the mental health and well-being of school children.
