Today, January 17, 2017 The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with Prince Harry held a briefing for their Heads Together Campaign ahead of the London Marathon at the Institute of Contemporary Arts. The purpose of today’s engagement was to outline where they plan to take their charity in the year 2017. You can read what the Duchess had to say below, you can also read what The Duke and Prince Harry had to say at the Heads Together Official Website:

As William has said we have heard time and time again in the course of our work how talking can help heal the hidden challenges we can’t deal with alone. We have seen that two heads are better than one when dealing with a mental health problem.

Yet, the challenge that so many people have is not knowing how to take that first step of reaching out to another person for help. Admitting that they are not coping. Fear, or reticence, or a sense of not wanting to burden another, means that people suffer in silence – allowing the problem to grow larger and larger unchecked.

William, Harry and I have been very privileged to witness in the course of our work countless examples of simple conversations that have changed lives, which were the first step on a path to recovery. Just last week at the Anna Freud Centre, I heard from one mother how talking to a support worker was – in her words – like medicine. Simply by having someone there to have a conversation with helped her immensely.

So the question that William, Harry and I have asked ourselves is how we can get more people to start talking. How do we encourage people to take the first step.

What Heads Together is proposing is that in the weeks leading up to the Marathon, our campaign will showcase people from all walks of life, talking about the life-changing conversations that have helped them with their mental health challenges.

We hope that these real-life examples will serve as encouragement to others to do the same.

If we succeed with this, we will have taken a powerful step in normalizing mental health as an issue in our society, thinking about it as we do our own physical health.

Harry will explain more in a moment about what you can do to help us with this challenge.

But first I would like to introduce Jon, who is running for Heads Together in the Marathon; and Steve, who will tell you the story of how a conversation made such a big difference to their mental health.

Jon and Steve … thank you.


Happy New Year, Everyone! I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday season! In her first royal engagement of the year the Duchess of Cambridge visited The Anna Freud Centre of which she is Patron and also one of the charities partnered with the Heads Together Campaign. She focused her visit around the Early Years Parenting Unit to learn more about their work with families who have children under five years old. Catherine spent her time meeting with families and hearing their stories. On her second visit of the day she met up with the Duke of Cambridge to visit a Child Bereavement UK Centre in Stratford to help mark its one year anniversary. This is a charity that The Duke has been Patron of since 2009. During the visit the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met with individuals who work at the charity, met with famiies and participated in activities. I have added 440 high quality photos to the gallery.

Today, November 04, 2016 The Duchess of Cambridge attended a series of embargoed engagements to HMP Eastwood Park and the Nelson Trust Women’s Centre. Catherine’s first visit was to a prison in Gloucestershire. Kensington Palace said of the visit: “The Duchess met with staff from Eastwood Park who explained the complex and often diverse needs of the women they work with including mental health concerns, family breakdowns, and treatment for addiction. Her Royal Highness also met with a small number of women prisoners to hear their personal stories.” In her second engagement of the day Catherine visited The Nelson Trust Women’s Centre, which is an organization that works with Eastwood Park to support women who have left prison. The Duchess heard stories from women receiving services and upon leaving unveiled a plaque marking her visit. I have added 76 HQ photos to the gallery. Enjoy!


Yesterday, November 03, 2016 The Duchess of Cambridge attended the UK Premiere Of “A Street Cat Named Bob” In Aid Of Action On Addiction. Before Catherine headed to the premiere she made and embargoed, or previously unannounced visit to the Recovery Street Film Festival. The Recovery Street Film Festival features films made by former addicts and their loved ones about life in recovery from addiction. The films provide real hope that people can, and do recover from addiction. At the festival Catherine to former addicts and filmmakers tell their stories of addiction and recovery. She also watched a special screening of a film. Later that evening, Catherine walked the red carpet at the movie premiere and met with author James Bowen and of course Bob. I have added 276 HQ photos to the gallery. Enjoy!


In her first solo visit overseas, The Duchess of Cambridge Visited The Netherlands on (October 11, 2016). Catherine had a busy day as she undertook multiple engagements in The Hague and Rotterdam. To start the day Catherine met King Willem-Alexander at Villa Eikenhorst, his private residence he shares with his wife Queen Máxima and their children, Princess Catharine-Amalia, Princess Alexia and Princess Ariane. Queen Máxima was unable to greet The Duchess as she was holding her own engagements in Argentina. Catherine had lunch with King Willem-Alexander before heading to the Mauritshuis Art Museum in The Hague for the exhibition, ‘At Home in Holland: Vermeer and his Contemporaries from the British Royal Collection’. Kate enjoyed a private tour of the museum and it’s collections before attending an art class with students. The next engagement of the day was at the British Ambassador’s Residence in The Hague, where she participated in a round table discussion about addiction, intervention, family and mental health. Catherine was joined by two charities in which she is Patron of, the Anna Freud Centre and Action on Addiction. Lastly, Catherine visited the city of Rotterdam to see Bouwkeet, the social Makerspace of Bospolder-Tussendijken, a workshop in a new community that offers a variety skills to local teenagers. Catherine concluded her trip with a walk about greeting well wishers.


Today, (October 10, 2016) was World Mental Health Day. Something we know that The Duchess of Cambridge is very serious about and has made it her mission to bring into the spotlight. To celebrate the day The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry held an event with their initiative, Heads Together at the County Hall and then at the London Eye on the South Bank, London.

The first event of the day was a reception with charities who are apart of their Heads Together campaign where TRH gave a joint speech and met with people who have received support. Following the reception they rode on the London Eye and took in the views.

I have added 400+ high quality photos to the gallery. Enjoy!


On the final day of Royal Tour Canada, October 01, 0216) The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent their day in Victoria, BC, Canada. They started their day at Cridge Centre for the Family. A charity that supports the youth and the elderly and offers a wide variety of support. The Duke and Duchess spent much time greeting well wishers. After visiting the centre the couple visited a local cafe where they met families who have benefited from the services offered by the Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre.

In the afternoon, the couple toured Victoria Harbor aboard a Tall Ship piloted by a crew from the Sail and Life Training Society (SALTS), a charity using sailing to help build life skills. Again, the couple spent time greeting well wishers for the last time on this tour.

After a quick wardrobe change the eight day Royal Tour of Canada concluded when The Cambridges arrived at the Victoria Harbour seaplane terminal. Ahead of their departure Kensington Palace released the following statement from Prince William:

“Catherine and I are incredibly grateful to the people of Canada for the warmth and hospitality they have extended to our family over the last week. We have loved our time in British Columbia and Yukon and will never forget the beautiful places we have seen and the many people who have been kind enough to come to welcome us in person. We feel very lucky to have been able to introduce George and Charlotte to Canada. This country will play a big part in the lives of our children and we have created such happy memories for our family during this visit. Canada is a country of optimism, generosity and unrivalled natural beauty. I hope we have helped all Canadians celebrate what makes this country great. We will see you again soon.”


On the seventh day of the 2016 Royal Canada tour (September 30, 2016) The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Haida Gwaii. The couple paddled in on a traditional canoe.

They also toured the the new Haida Gwaii General Hospital where they unveiled a plaque marking their visit.

Following their earlier visits The Duke and Duchess joined teens from Skidegate Youth Centre on a fishing trip.


On (September 29,2016) The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted a children’s party for military families on the grounds of Government House in Victoria Canada. Their own children Prince George and Princess Charlotte were also in attendance. The children enjoyed a petting zoo, miniature ponies, balloon animals and a puppet show. Plenty of adorable moments came out of this engagement and I’m sure that it will be a highlight of the tour for many.



Welcome to Day 5 of Royal Tour Canada! On (September 28, 2016) The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge explored MacBride Museum in downtown Whitehorse. Inside the couple took part in a story circle with local children and elders. The couple then marked their visit by sending a “telegraph to tweet” using an original telegraph. Afterwards couple met locals outside the museum at a street party.

September 26< 2016 marked Day 3 of the 2016 Canada Tour. The Duke and Duchess traveled to rainy Bella Bella, Canada for a day of engagements. Due to the poor weather conditions the couple were not able to do the aerial tour of the Rainforest, something I’m sure they both would have enjoyed!

Upon arrival to Bella Bella Their Royal Highnesses attended an official welcome and performance from Bella Bella First Nations Community at the Wawiska Community Hall. The pair received many gifts and met with many locals.

Their next stop was to McLoughlin Bay for a short ceremony, marking the commitment of the rainforest to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy network.
