Kate is scheduled to visit Roe Green Junior School, Brent, one of the schools that has been doing a trial of the new website, to officially launch the online resource.

The website will draw together reliable and practical resources to improve awareness, knowledge and confidence in promoting and supporting pupils' mental health.

The free website for schools, called Mentally Healthy Schools, is expected to be rolled out nationwide in the spring after being monitored and reviewed.

Bets are even being taken on how much the baby will weigh, with the favourite being three kilograms.

Though there are lots of mental health resources available for teachers, Mentally Healthy Schools has been specially created to help them talk to children about issues ranging from bereavement to anxiety and eating disorders.


The palace added that content will be provided in four main areas; Teaching Resources, Risks and Protective Factors, Mental Health Needs, and "Whole School Approach" for school leaders.

The Duchess of Cambridge launched the latest initiative from HeadsTogether to support children's mental well-being at a London school today, and urged young children to "break the silence" attached to mental health. Next week she is joining her husband, Prince William, on the Royal Tour of Sweden and Norway.

"They don't think it's fair on other patients at the hospital and people visiting their relatives".

A blue skirt could be seen peeping out from underneath the Duchess' coat when she bent down to speak to children at the school.


Kate bonded with a young student as she joined Year 3 pupils in the classroom.

"I think it is really important that all school staff feel that the information applies to them as well, not just to teachers".

"No matter what their role in the school, they need to have an understanding and empathy towards all the children".

The duchess - who is pregnant with her third child and is the mother of Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2 - has regularly spoken about the importance of encouraging children to open up about mental health issues.
