Kate Middleton and Prince William have been spotted together as they underwent their latest royal engagement in Wolverhampton on Thursday 13 May.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited The Way Youth Zone in Wolverhampton, which focuses on supporting children and young people with their mental health, as Prince Harry compared royal life to the move The Truman Show.

Kate, 39, and 38 year old husband William’s miniature tour of Wolverhampton to visit a selection of children's charities falls on Mental Health Awareness Week.

Mum-of-three Kate, who launched her very own book, looked gorgeous in a pair of dark high-waisted trousers with a flared leg and a black and white polka dot blouse with a white Peter Pan collar.

She added a longline navy blue smart jacket on top.

She accessorised her look with a blue and white floral face covering and wore a belt around her waist to top off the chic outfit.

Kate looked effortlessly stunning as she kept her makeup to a minimum with a hint mascara and a small amount of blush.

Meanwhile, she styled her brunette locks in her signature blow-dried look.

During the event, Kate’s husband Prince William, who is said to have been embroiled in a feud with brother Harry for a year and a half, wore a pair of dark blue trousers along with a jumper of the same colour, which had a light blue shirt underneath.

William matched his wife as he wore a dark blue blazer and topped his ensemble off with a pair of black shoes and a blue face covering.



During the visit, the couple were seen taking part in activities with the children at the youth centre.

Kate and William sweetly laughed together as they took part in some gardening – with William holding on to a yellow rabbit-shaped watering can.

Duchess Kate is particularly committed to improving and supporting children’s mental health and wellbeing.

She has previously worked to bring more attention to issues facing children today including addiction, poverty, abuse, neglect, loss and illness of family members and how they can have a long-lasting impact.

Kate previously said: “It is our duty, as parents and as teachers, to give all children the space to build their emotional strength and provide a strong foundation for their future”.

Husband Prince William has also passionately campaigned for mental health.

William and Kate championed the Heads Together mental health campaign in 2017, alongside Prince Harry.

And, the couple continue to support the charity’s ongoing campaign to tackle the stigma around mental health.

The couple shared videos and photos from their visit, which is the first of a number today, on their Twitter page.

They wrote: “Todays visit is all about understanding local organisations here in Wolverhampton.

“Organisations that are motivating and inspiring young people to transform their lives.#MentalHealthAwarenessWeek”.

Football fan William then made references to his ball skills as he added: “(P.S blaming the shoes for [football emoji] attempts)

Prince William previously said of the initiative: “Through our work with young people, emergency response, homeless charities, and with veterans, we have seen time and time again that unresolved mental health problems lie at the heart of some of our greatest social challenges.”

Meanwhile, the husband and wife have previously supported a number of mental health charities including Best Beginnings, CALM (The Campaign Against Living Miserably), Mind, Young Minds and much more.

It comes after Prince Harry compared royal life to Jim Carey movie, The Truman show.

Harry, 36, said on the Armchair Expert podcast, with Dax Shepard, that his life was “like being on The Truman Show and a zoo”.

Dax noted: “You were kind of cast into a movie without being asked.”

Harry replied: “Being born into [the Royal Family] you inherit all the risks without choice.

“Then people turn around and say, 'so what if you didn't have a choice? You have privilege.”
