Kate Middleton brought a family photo to a school’s show-and-tell

The Duchess of Cambridge today showed children a family photograph as an example of an item that brings her happiness as she visited a primary school in north London.

Kate, 37, was visiting Lavender Primary School in Enfield as part of Children’s Mental Health Week.

The relaxed photograph of William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis was used for the Cambridge Christmas card.

The duchess, who wore an Eponine dress, was visiting as patron for Place2Be, a children’s mental health charity.

Kate was given a warm welcome by a crowd of excitable children as she arrived for her visit on Tuesday.

She was also greeted in the playground by the school dog Herbie, a Cockapoo

The dog lives with the head of school and goes into the school to spend time with pupils four days a week.

She was later visiting Alperton Community School in Wembley, the school of Andria Zafirakou, who won last year’s Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize.

Place2Be, a children’s mental health charity which has the duchess as its royal patron, is behind Children’s Mental Health Week which this year has a theme of Healthy: Inside and Out, focusing on the connection between physical and mental health.

The charity works with more than 280 primary and secondary schools across England, Scotland, and Wales, providing support and expert training to improve the emotional wellbeing of pupils, families, teachers and school staff.

During her visit to Alperton Community School, Kate will join a round-table discussion with teachers about students’ school readiness and teacher welfare and will meet pupils taking part in an extracurricular club focusing on the wellbeing of the school community.

At Lavender Primary School, Kate will watch pupils taking part in the school’s Daily Mile challenge, which teaches children about the importance of being active.

She will also join a group of parents talking about the challenges of putting in place good routines and habits around sleep, screen time, healthy eating and exercise.
