The campaign features an animated film co-produced by children & teachers, and includes an introduction by The Duchess, Patron of @AFNCCF. pic.twitter.com/hIkB6UCy8x— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) September 18, 2017
During the introduction, Kate said she is proud to support the campaign: "Sometimes, it's just a simple conversation that can make things better."
The full text of the introduction.
On their website the Anna Freud centre shares more on the campaign: "Our child mental health experts have also developed a booklet: ‘Supporting mental health and wellbeing in schools’, a series of expert advice films which offer practical guidance about what teachers can do in the classroom to support mental health, and what to do if they are concerned about a child and a leaflet for parents and carers offering tips to talking mental health with children. All our resources will be free to access online through our Schools in Mind networks."
The message was recorded in January during Kate's visit to the centre's Early Years Parenting Unit to learn more about their work with families who have children under five years old. The Duchess wore a blue belted Eponine London coat for the day.
In some ways, it feels an age since we began our 'Styling Kate' series in early August. So much has happened within the Royal family, from Prince William beginning a new phase in his life as a full-time royal, Prince George beginning school and, of course, the major surprise announcement the Duchess is expecting. Elsewhere within the Royal family, Prince Harry is continuing to develop his role, with the hugely successful Invictus Games kicking off on Saturday. His personal life also appears to have fallen perfectly into place. Prince Philip officially retired; there's been quite the staff shake up followed by continued reports of infighting within the royal households. Yes, it's been a rather interesting month for royal watchers :) We've been thoroughly enjoying a look at your submissions for Royal Ascot, but it's now time to turn our attention to the glamorous evening ensembles you prepared for the Duchess to wear for the royal premiere of the latest James Bond movie Royal Flush at the Albert Hall. For a sparkling evening with 007, acclaimed actors and leading figures in the business, we wanted 'wow' factor looks - and you all certainly fulfilled that brief. Something about royal premieres and glitzy evening events fits in so wonderfully with the current change in seasons, when one sees the leaves changing colour and the cooler, darker evenings descending. Such events on the royal calendar are now indelibly linked with the build up to the close of the year. I'm thinking of the Diplomatic Reception, Royal Variety Performance, galas for charitable organisations... Without further delay, let's take a look at your choices!
Phyl - Phyl chose pieces from several of Kate's go-to brands and designers for her look, which she assembled on Polyvore. Below, we see the purple Roland Mouret Lely Stretch-Crepe Gown featuring the label's signature asymmetric neckline. The look is accessorised with the Jimmy Choo Anouk Glitter Pumps, Oscar de la Renta earrings and the L.K. Bennett Cecilia clutch. The look is completed with a nod to Bond - Santa Maria Novella Melograno perfume - used by Vesper Lynd in Casino Royale.
Silverdiver - The dark forest green Jenny Packham Long-Sleeve V-Neck Beaded Tulle Gown is teamed with Jimmy Choo Lance Sandals with crystals, the champagne Jimmy Choo Finley clutch, The Queen's Emerald Pendant Earrings and the Delhi Durbar Necklace.
FL Lady - FL Lady also chose Jenny Packham - opting for the designer's Half-Sleeve Embellished Gown in Black Abusson Blue. The gown featuring a jewel neckline is styled with the L.K. Bennett Agata Sandals in black, Kate's L.K. Bennett Frome clutch, Kate's Robinson Pelham wedding earrings and The Queen's South African Diamond Necklace and Bracelet.
Sofy - Sofy chose a sweeping green strapless embellished gown from Tony Ward's Fall 2016 Collection with a green jewelled Prada clutch, Queen Victoria's Emerald Fringe Earrings and The Godman Necklace.
Helen in Indiana - Helen shared her look via Polyvore, choosing the Michelle Mason One-shoulder cutout silk-charmeuse midi dress. It is described as "The antique-rose color of Michelle Mason's dress feels fresh and feminine, while the silk-charmeuse fabric beautifully skims the figure." It would be worn with red pumps, a Fendi Wallet, a Swarovski Crystal Brooch Necklace and matching earrings.
Anon 15 - Taken by the popularity of violet/purple hues on the blog, Anon 15 selected a purple one-shoulder Monique Lhuillier gown. It is accessorised with Saint Laurent Amber Metallic Leather Ankle-Strap Sandals, the Christian Louboutin So Kate clutch and antique amethyst drop earrings.
Rebecca - Sweden - Rebecca chose the Suzannah Sculpted Fifties Influence Floor Length Strapless Gown inspired by an archived couture gown. The gown would be worn with the Jimmy Choo Lance Sandals and Kate's Packham Casa clutch (the same one she carried to the Bond SPECTRE premiere). For jewellery, Rebecca went digging in the royal vaults choosing The Queen Mother's Sapphire and Diamond Fringe Earrings, The Queen's Sapphire and Diamond 18th Birthday Bracelet and Diana's Saudi Sapphire Necklace.
Kate - Kate shared her look via Polyvore featuring a vivid red draped gown by Emanuel Ungaro. "This Emanuel Ungaro Draped Gown is rendered in sexy, slinky viscose and features a one shoulder sash that highlights the décolletage and drapes over the shoulder into a muted, train-like flowing finish." It's styled with Kate's Jimmy Choo Vamp pumps, ruby and diamond bracelet and the earrings Kate wore to the 'Our Greatest Team Rises' gala in 2012.
Sonja from Bavaria - "I discovered this gorgeous brand called Talbot Runhof and they had this gown which was just... perfection! The pleats, the beading, everything is so 'Kate' yet a little departure from her usual style which I really like. The combination of these champagne/rosy hues with a bold autumnal bordeaux would just look so sophisticated and elegant - perfect for Kate!" Below we see the soft pink Talbot Runhof gown styled with the dusty rose Jimmy Choo Lucy pumps, a Ted Baker clutch and Portero 14k Rose Gold Mother of Pearl Diamond Large Dangle Earrings. Sonja would complete the look with crimson lipstick and nail polish.
April Girl - April Girl opted for a look one might describe as uncharted territory for the Duchess - a jumpsuit! The chic Adina Pink Off-The-Shoulder Jumpsuit from Reiss is styled with the light grey Reiss Broadway Suede Belt, Aspinal of London Eaton Clutch, Prada Scalloped Sandals, the Monica Vinader Nura Teardrop Long Cocktail Earrings and Queen Mary's Diamond Indian Bangle Bracelets.
Julia from Leominster - Husband and wife duo Julia and Leo worked together on their Bond premiere look. Below, we see the Catherine Walker Estella jade green georgette leaf evening dress with crystal hand embroidered borders. It's styled with seafoam green pointy toe Jimmy Choo pumps, a blue butterfly clutch from Etsy and The Queen's Opal earrings.
Melissa, UK - Melissa turned to Kate's favourite fashion house, Alexander McQueen, for her premiere look. The red Shoulder Drape Backless Gown is sleeveless with a pleated bodice. The dress is teamed with the Jimmy Choo Lang pumps and Trinket clutch. To finish the ensemble, it's Queen Victoria's Crown Ruby Earrings and the Queen's Wedding Gift Bracelet.
Molly Claire - Molly Claire opted for the shimmering Temperley London Wild Horse Gold Dress, adorned with sequins and scattered with hand-embroidered flowers. The ensemble also includes red patent Jimmy Choo Lance pumps, a velvet envelope clutch from Dries van Noten, the Queen's ruby and diamond earrings and Diana's gold charm bracelet.
Imqrious2 - Imqrious2 would love to see the Duchess wearing a one-shoulder emerald green gown with a belted waist, adorned with sequin details by Elie Saab. The Fall 2013 couture gown would be worn with statement emerald, sapphire and diamond earrings, Manolo Blahnik Racia Sandals and the very 'movie premiere appropriate' Judith Leiber Couture Camera Clutch Bag.
Hannah - Like Melissa, Hannah was taken with the the gorgeous Alexander McQueen Should Drape Backless Gown. Hannah accessorised the gown with Kate's much loved Jimmy Choo Vamp Sandals, the Panthiére de Cartier bracelet and Kate's emerald earrings.
Maria in Germany - Maria selected a sleeveless Zuhair Murad Satin Ballgown with Beaded Roses with a deep v neckline. The look is styled with Kate's black Prada pumps, the Jimmy Choo champagne glitter Fie clutch and Queen Victoria's Crown Ruby Earrings.
Marci in Utah - Like me, Marci loved the teal Jenny Packham gown with exquisite sheer lace detailing, Kate wore in 2012 for the 'Our Greatest Team Rises' gala. "I really want to see that teal Jenny Packham gown again too. It was far too pretty to be retired permanently, and its style needs another outing soon." For it's second outing, Marci would style it with Kate's Prada scalloped sandals and the The Queen's Brazilian Aquamarine Parure.
Sunny - Sunny chose the Monique Lhuillier Floral Contrast Gown with a vibrant floral satin skirt and beaded waistband. It's styled with the Jimmy Choo Cloud Pearl Satin Clutch Bag with crystal bead embroidery. The look is completed with the Robinson Pelham Evoke Tulip Earrings Set with Pearl Drops and Diamonds.
Joanne in CA - Joanne chose a glittering black gown with sheer lace sleeves and a slit paired with the Jessica Simpson Emilyn rhinstone encrusted sandals and the Lulu Townsend Faziah Box Clutch. The ensemble is accessorised with Diamond drop earrings.
Couch Potato - The Jovani Deep V-Neck Lace Mermaid Gown with mesh insert and cutout back. The gown is teamed with the Jimmy Choo Cloud clutch in steel metallic nappa leather and Talia Sandals. The look is completed with the dazzling Nizam of Hyderabad necklace.
Miol Mor - Miol Mor chose a sleek Ralph & Russo gown with a deep v neckline from the Autumn/Winter 2017 Collection, Kate's Oscar de la Renta Platinum Lamé Cabrina Pumps, Kate's Jenny Packham Casa clutch and The Queen's Andamooka Opal Necklace and earrings.
Nicole - Nicole chose the Oscar de la Renta Lace Detail Evening Dress with Jimmy Choo black stilettos, the sparkling Celeste small dégradé glittered satin clutch and the very on trend Oscar de la Renta Tasselled Clip-on earrings.
Caravino - Caravino selected the Valentino Floral-Print Keyhole Gown with a peter pan collar and sheer tulle sleeves. It's styled with the Gianvito Rossi Velvet Pointy Toe pumps and (with a little help from Sonja) the Queen's Chandelier earrings.
Siddhii - The Roland Mouret Hampstead Bloom One Shoulder Fil Coupé Gown, described as "Abstract pewter fil coupé lends Roland Mouret's black organza gown a subtle and modern slant. It's supremely crafted in the UK with an asymmetric one-shoulder neckline that brings the collarbones into focus, and falls into a fully flared skirt from a boned bodice.". Siddhii notes "And I would accessorize this dress with black heels and Diana's bracelet and necklace she wore for the London premiere of 'Gandhi' in December 1982."
Andrea from New York - "A Carolina Herrera blue print off the shoulder gown from pre-fall 2017 collection, print reminiscent of Markus Lupfer dress Kate wore in Berlin" The gown is teamed with the Miu Miu Jeweled Satin Slingback Pumps, a Judith Leiber Faceted Box clutch and Kiki McDonough blue topaz pearl and oval drop earrings.
Courtney from NC - "I keep going back and forth between a couple gowns so I am going to do my look before I change my mind again. My husband thinks it is hilarious how much thought I put into this." Courtney chose the lilac Monique Lhuillier Draped Tulle Ball Gown with Ruffle Skirt with the Dasha Clutch, Alexandre Birman Clarita Satin Sandals and Graff Infinity Jewels.
Looking forward to preparing the remaining looks later this week :)
