The Duchess of Cambridge Vanessa Seward

PRETTY IN PRINT: The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out Monday afternoon to attend the Christmas party for youth charity, Heads Together.

She wore a midi dress adorned in a festive poppy print for the occasion and was quick to join the charity’s staff to make paper decorations for the party.

The duchess was joined by the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, who also received training by the charity’s team on how to support young people coping with homelessness or having suicidal thoughts.

The Heads Together campaign promotes the work of eight mental health charities, including the Anna Freud National Centre, which works toward delivering treatment to the mentally ill; Best Beginnings, which supports the mental health of pregnant women and new mothers, and Place2Be, which provides emotional support in schools.

The Duchess is a patron of the Place2Be charity. Last month, she attended its annual awards at Mansion House, which commemorated schools, volunteers and children who have contributed to communities for the cause. During the ceremony, dressed in a black Preen by Thornton Bregazzi dress, the Duchess presented awards to kids who are involved with the charity.
