Wills And Kate Step Out Together Looking Adorable
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have attended the Mental Health Summit, their first joint public engagement since Prince Louis' birth.
It's been Harry and Meghan fever for months but now royal fans can rest easy -- Prince William and Kate have stepped out in London! The couple frocked up and looked fab as they went to the first Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit, their first public outing as a couple since Louis was born. And it was pretty cute -- they seemed to have a great time together, laughing and joking as they tackled the tricky subject of mental health at the event. The royal couple are of course, pretty passionate about raising awareness of mental health issues, having launched the Royal Foundation's Heads Together campaign with Prince Harry in 2016.
The Duchess was all business for the event, wearing a lilac dress by Emilia Wickstead for the outing, and it wasn't the first time we've seen her in it either -- she also wore it during her royal tour of Germany in 2017.

During their tour of the conference the royals viewed an original painting by Colombian artist Dairo Vargas and got to show off their prowess in the painting arena themselves when he offered them a brush. William volunteered Kate to add her touch to the canvas, "as she is the arty one." Prince William then teased his wife, saying "It's almost ruined the picture," after she added a white stroke to the painting, but later joked: "no, this is probably how you ruin a picture," as he added his own mark. See the video below.
The artist didn't seem too upset or reach for the turps to get rid of their work (or shred it, like Banksy) though. “I think I am going to leave their contributions untouched!," he laughed, describing the couple as “great, very fun" and adding, "I had always rather hoped they might have a go but didn’t know until the day that they would.”
The royals also visited a stand run by United for Global Mental Health and heard about the work of Dixon Chibanda, who started an initiative in Zimbabwe. Grandmothers are considered key figures in Zimbabwean communities and are now being trained to offer therapy sessions sitting on special "friendship benches". Wills and Kate took a seat on one -- giggling when they were asked to get up so they could pose for photographs.
The Duke and Duchess also visited the exhibition area and met with representatives from a number of organisations to hear more about their mental health campaigns, and met with young people who have had or are dealing with mental health issues.
Welcome back guys, we've missed you!
