Kate And William Will Attend First Joint Engagement Since Louis’ Birth

Now that Kate has returned from maternity leave, you can expect to see a lot of her. We still don’t know her exact schedule but she will have a busy autumn.

She will carry out her next engagement after maternity leave together with husband William.

Kate and William will attend the first Global Mental Health Summit.

The summit will take place at County Hall in London on October 9 and October 10. But the couple will be there only the first day, on October 9.

Kensington Palace announced on Twitter: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend the first Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit on Tuesday 9th October.

“#GlobalMHSummit will see political figures, academics and policy-makers from around the world come together with one common goal: better mental health for all.”

Guests include political figures, policy makers, leading academics, innovators and civil society members from around the world. They will discuss mental health issues in order to help those with mental health and psychosocial disabilities.

William and Kate will likely attend a workstream called “Children, Young People and the Now Generation” as well as the panel discussion “Children and Young People in the Digital Age.”  The couple will have a chance to meet and speak with representatives from mental health organisations.

They will also reportedly see artwork inspired by the day, attend Q&A sessions etc. William and Kate will visit a Friendship Bench, which is part of a programme from Zimbabwe.

The couple attend an evening reception at the London Eye Pier.

This is the perfect event for the Camrbidges who along with Harry, started the mental health initiative Heads Together in 2016. Their aim is to take away the stigma of discussing mental health as well as raise money and awareness for those impacted by mental health issues and their families.

William said at the launch in 2016: “My thing really is to get more men talking about their issues before it is too late, and to stop feeling so strong and unable to seek help.”
