Duchess of Cambridge Talks Children’s Mental Health in Rare Video Selfie

The Duchess of Cambridge has shared a video selfie to promote the start of Children’s Mental Health Week in the UK. (And yes, it may just be her first public video selfie!)

“This year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is all about expressing yourself. About finding creative ways in which to share your thoughts, ideas and feelings,” she explains in the post shared on Instagram.


“So whether that’s through photography, through art, through drama, through music or poetry, it’s finding those things that make you feel good about yourself.”

The royal mum-of-three also had a message for parents – to look after ourselves amid the pandemic so we can be “the very best versions” of ourselves for the kids.

“There has never been a more important time to talk about parental well-being and mental health too. Last year, you told me just how important this was that many of us find it hard to prioritise,” the Duchess continues.

“This is a hugely challenging time for us all, so please look after yourself too.”

The video comes just days after Duchess Catherine took part in a chat with a group of parents discussing all the additional roles parents are taking on at the moment due to COVID-19 lockdowns.

“I have become a hairdresser in lockdown – much to my children’s horror,” she joked.
