William And Kate Step Out To Support Mental Health Text Support Service

On Tuesday morning, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out to meet volunteers at their Shout text support service.

The couple beamed as they arrived at the celebration event at the Troubadour White City Theatre.

Kate looked ready for business in a burgundy Joseph trousers paired with a black and white patterned Smythe jacket and black pumps. Her famous brunette locks were styled in one of her famous bouncy blowdries.

Prince William opted for a blue suit paired with a light blue shirt and a tie for the occasion.

As they were entering the Troubadour White Theatre, gentleman William reached for his wife’s back, before inviting her to walk ahead of him.

Shout is a 24/7 text support service which was researched and developed by The Royal Foundation as a legacy of the Heads Together Campaign, with a £3million investment. It was launched by Kate and William as well as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in May 2019.

The launch of Shout in the UK is a result of the royal couples’ commitment, during their Heads Together campaign, to support conversations on mental health.

Since the charity launched in May this year, 1,500 volunteers have had 145,000 text conversations with people in crisis, exchanging a total of six million messages.

Six months ago, to mark the charity’s official opening, William and Kate, alongside the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, appealed to the public to give their time to the charity.  And since then more than 13,000 people have registered an interest.

During the engagement, Prince William and Kate will also join Shout volunteers in the theatre to watch a special performance. Then, they will join a group photo with volunteers to encourage everyone to spread the word about Shout.
