PRETTY IN PINK: The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge headed to Cornwall, a county in the U.K.’s southwest on Tuesday.
The royal couple went to the city of Truro to show their support in a “sign-a-slate” project for the Truro Cathedral’s roof appeal. The cathedral, which was built between 1885 and 1910, is in need of reparations. During their visit Kate Middleton and Prince William are scheduled to learn about the businesses, charities and organizations in the Cornwall area.
The duchess wore a pale pink dress by Lela Rose and Monsoon wedges.
The pair plans to visit Towan beach in Newquay, where they will meet with children from the Wave Project, a program that aids youngsters with anxiety and suffering from mental-health problems by teaching them to surf.
The couple will also visit Scilly, an archipelago off the Cornish coast. They will tour the islands of St. Mary’s, Tresco and St. Martin’s, where they are to learn about the region’s industries and businesses.
Mental health has been an important initiative for the pair. Last week they carried out a series of royal engagements to promote the platform. The young royals made an impromptu visit to the Young Minds charity in London. The duke and duchess took in a tour of the help-line center and met with children and volunteers. They took part in a training session at the charity that aids parents of children suffering from mental-health problems.
The young royals also visited Luton and toured the site of Youthscape, a charity in Bute Mills. They met with staffers of Chums, a mental-health service that aids young people, and also met with various charities working on mental-health issues, including Our Minds Matter, OM, Luton Council of Faiths and Grassroots.
