The Duchess of Cambridge has been out of the public eye for just under six weeks now after it was announced that she was pregnant with her third child. On Tuesday, she is scheduled to make a first appearance since then alongside Prince William and Prince Harry.
The royal trio will attend an event held at Buckingham Palace for World Mental Health Day, in which they will honour those who work in the mental health sector throughout the UK.
The royals will acknowledge those who have dedicated their lives to changing the conversation surrounding care and mental illness. It will recognise the hard work, dedication, and progress made by those professionals who have made efforts to raise awareness over the past several years.
William, Catherine and Harry will also thank those who continue to provide support to people going through difficult times in their lives.
The Duchess of Cambridge was last seen publicly in August viewing a tribute garden for the late Diana, Princess of Wales at Kensington Palace.
It would be her last public engagement before the announcement of her third pregnancy was made in early September. The Duchess has been suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum for the third time, a severe form of morning sickness. She previously suffered from the condition during the early stages of her pregnancies with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Late last month, Prince William revealed that his wife was feeling better since the announcement of her pregnancy was made, adding that she had tried eating ginger biscuits to soothe her stomach but “there’s not much ginger can do to stop that. We’ve done all that.”
Royal Central will bring you a detailed report of the Buckingham Palace event in aid World Mental Health Day after the engagement concludes.
