The choice of story is in keeping with the theme of Mental Health Week which is “Growing Together”. For her next television appearance, the wife of Prince William, 39, opted for a relaxed look. Kate Middleton chose a Holland & Cooper cream turtleneck Fair Isle jumper paired with blue jeans. To read the tale, the mother of Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, sits on a rug with her legs crossed. Kate Middleton has two stuffed owls and one of Cbeebies’ signature Bugbies by her side.
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge is very committed to children
The Duchess of Cambridge is no stranger to charities working in the field of children’s mental health. In addition, Kate Middleton, 40, is the godmother of Place2Be, the charity behind this national event. Children’s Mental Health Week has been kicking off since the year 2015. Kate Middleton is the first member of the royal family to read a story for children on a Cbeebies show. Patricia Hidalgo, the director of BBC Children’s and Education does not hide her pride. She said: “I couldn’t be more proud that the Duchess is reading a CBeebies Bedtime Story as we mark the 20th anniversary of our CBeebies and CBBC channels.”
