HuffPo got the royal seal of approval today when the Duchess of Cambridge became Guest Editor for the day. Through an initiative with the UK’s leading mental health charities, the Duchess of Cambridge teamed up with the online news outlet to bring global awareness to a cause she cares about deeply.
The day began early at Kensington Palace’s press offices, which had been turned into a makeshift newsroom for the event, as the Duchess was joined by UK media, journalists, charity representatives, and children. Kate commissioned a series of blog posts, articles, and videos for the Huffington Post UK for the event.
During the event, Kate had an informal press conference to discuss the content of the articles and videos, and further explain the #YoungMindsMatter initiative.
The Duchess of Cambridge was joined at Kensington Palace by children from the various charities she supports, including the Diana Award organization. The children were also featured in the #YoungMindsMatter film report, published for today’s event.
For today’s event at Kensington Palace, the Duchess wore a blouse by Reiss and a skirt by Dolce and Gabanna. Both items were new for us, and the outfit was very chic and appropriate for today’s event.
For accessories, the Duchess chose classic and simple pearl drop earrings from Anoushka along with her Cartier watch. To complete the look Kate wore her trusty Stuart Weitzman “Power” pump shoes.
This was a landmark event for the Royal Family – the first time a British royal has taken on such a global, public outlet for their cause. The Duchess, along with William and Harry, are making great strides towards moving the British Royal Family into the 21st century.
Later today, we will be spotlighting the important charitable causes, blog posts, and videos highlighted in today’s event. See you then!
