Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are expecting their third child together! Kensington Palace made the announcement this morning (September 04, 2017) after Catherine had to cancel a scheduled engagement. As with her first two pregnancies The Duchess is experiencing hyperemesis gravidarum, a extreme form of morning sickness which will have her sidelined for the next couple of weeks. You can read the official statement below:
“Their royal highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child. The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news.
“As with her previous two pregnancies, the duchess is suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum. Her royal highness will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road children’s centre in London today. The duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace.”

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. Enjoy!

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.

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.
