Kate Middleton Speaks Out In Support Of Children's Mental Health

We love to hear the Duchess speak, but hearing her advocate for children is even better.

Kate Middleton rarely speaks publicly, but when she does, it's often for a good cause.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who is a patron of the children's mental health charity Place2Be, sat down with kids helped by the organization's work as part of a video supporting Children's Mental Health Week, according to Hello! Canada.

While the 34-year-old spoke about building up kids' confidence, she herself has struggled with public speaking in the past. But in this address, she was articulate and self-assured, looking right into the camera.

"Every child deserves to grow up knowing their potential and feeling confident that they won't fall at the first hurdle," Kate said.

"But for some children, learning to cope with life's challenges can be a struggle."

Place2Be provides in-school support services for kids across the U.K., helping them deal with challenges like bullying, grief and domestic violence.

Kate has been a big advocate for children's mental health, according to People, even giving a public speech back in November.
