Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attend Mental Health Summit

A simple conversation can make a big difference this mental health awareness week

The pair attended the first Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit, an initiative that's been launched to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world.

She paired the outfit with nude heels and a pale lavender handbag.

William and Middleton have been vocal about their advocacy for mental health, starting their Heads Together campaign, along with Prince Harry, and aiming to combat the stigma surrounding mental health. "This is a great, great compliment", Kate told Vargas of his painting.

Her husband was only delighted to make a joke and said that his wife's handiwork had nearly "ruined the picture" but as you'll see from snaps and videos of the event, she saw the amusing side of his remark.

Eagle-eyed fans of Kate's style will recognise the frock from her and Prince William's royal tour of Germany and Poland previous year.

This saw the couple break out into laughter along with the crowd.

They also heard presentations on two case studies of active mental health programmes from Slovenia and the United States of America and visited an exhibition area.

The Duke and Duchess had a chance to speak to young delegates at the summit about the challenges and issues they face. The initiative was started by Dixon Chibanda and teaches the women to become lay health workers.

Middleton, who returned to her royal duties exactly one week ago to greet school children at a wildlife garden event, looked as stunning as ever for her latest engagement.

The Duchess chose a dress by Emilia Wickstead, wore previously during her 2017 royal tour of Germany.

Let's hope Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are all in bed, because mom is out on the town!

In the lead-up to hosting a Marathon for Mental Health in the United Kingdom in 2017, Prince Harry revealed he'd sought counselling in his early 20's after two years of what he labelled "total chaos" following the death of his mother, Princess Diana.

Prince William and Catherine flashed huge smiles.
