On Sunday, Kensington Palace released a video of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge along with Prince Harry to launch the #HeadsTogether mental health campaign.
Heads Together is a new campaign which brings together seven charities focused on mental health: Mind, CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably), Place2Be, YoungMinds, The Mix, Best Beginnings, and Contact (two members of which are Help for Heroes and Combat Stress). The campaign is backed by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
Heads Together is the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon Charity of the Year and will have a team running in next year's marathon. The video features the royal trio and runners representing all the charity partners and was shot outside Kensington Palace on April 21.
In the video, Kate donned her trademark casual look and wore a new Breton stripe jumper paired with skinny jeans. The breton top is the J.Crew 'Tippi' striped sweater with shoulder buttons (US$85). The merino wool sweater is finished with button details at the shoulder.
The 'Tippi' sweater is a signature style of the J.Crew collection and it is available in a rainbow of colours and patterns.
As many of you know, the Duchess is fond of Breton tops. In her closet you will find striped tops from Ralph Lauren and ME+EM.
In the clip, Kate wore her Monsoon 'Fleur' Espadrilles.
She accessorized with her KIKI 'Lauren' Yellow Gold Diamond Pave Leaf Earrings.

On Friday evening, the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge along with Prince Harry welcomed President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle to their London home for dinner. The royal trio waited on the steps of Apartment 1A in Kensington Palace for their distinguished guests to arrive.
The young royals looked perfectly coordinated in blue toned outfits. Kate wore a new dress by her favorite high-street label LK Bennett. She donned the brand's current season'Addison' printed silk dress (£325). The jewel-toned dress is made from 100% silk and features sheer sleeves and ankle grazing length.
Kate added a navy belt, the same one she wore with the Glamorous maxi dress during the royal tour of India.
On her feet were the Rupert Sanderson 'Malory' 100mm high heel pumps.
Kate accessorized with her G. Collins Tanzanite Pendant Necklace & Earrings.
As staff opened the black double doors, the group walked into a hallway where another guest stood in the distance to greet the visitors.
Much to the delight of the President and First lady, inside stood Prince George dressed in his jammies and robe.
Prince George wore a personalised gingham robe by My1styears.com (£27) atop blue check pajamas from the White Company. On his feet were navy Little Boston Plane slippers by Trotters (£18).
The little prince was eager to show the President of the United States his rocking horse - a gift he received from the Obamas when he was born.
The Cambridges hosted the Obamas in the drawing room. This is the first time the public has got glimpse of the royal couple's newly renovated 22-room apartment.
Also on display was a soft toy dog - another gift from the Obamas, given to George when Princess Charlotte was born.
It is a replica of the First Family's Portuguese water dog, Bo. You can pick one up at Amazon.
If anyone is interested, the Daily Mail has a break-down of the Drawing Room decor.

Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her 90th birthday today. Her Majesty spent the day at Windsor Castle were she was greeted by huge cheering crowds.
In the evening, Prince Charles hosted a private birthday dinner for his mother. More than 30 members of the Royal Family were among the 71 guests attending the formal dinner, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
IKON Pictures shared this image on Twitter of the royal trio leaving Kensington Palace en route to Windsor Castle.
From the limited photo it looks like Kate is wearing a new green lace dress. The What Kate Wore community have suggested it may be by Temperley London because the lace details look very similar to the designer's 'Amoret' gown.
Here's a closer look at the lace detail of the new dress compared to the 'Amoret' gown.
I'll update the post if anymore photos emerge.
It was a special day for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, visiting the Taj Mahal on the last stop of their royal tour.
The Taj Mahal is one of the iconic symbols of India, and also the place of one of the most memorable photos of Prince William's mother, the late Princess of Wales.
It was a poignant moment for Prince William to visit 24 years on from Diana's solo trip to the 'monument of love'. With Kate by his side, the Prince posed on the same bench as his mother, capturing the sentiment of the visit.
Following the photo opportunity, William and Kate had a private tour of the historic mausoleum.
For this special occasion, Kate wore a white dress with blue embroidered motif from American fashion designer Naeem Khan. Born in Mumbai, India, Khan is known for his intricately hand-beaded and embroidered dresses.
Kate wore a sheath dress from Khan's Resort 2015 line, however the dress has been modified when you compare it to the off-the-rack version shown on the model below. Kate's dress is slightly longer with an extra panel of embroidery at the hem. This suggests the dress is a bespoke piece.
On her feet were trademark nude high heels; the LK Bennett 'Fern' pumps.
Kate accessorized with an interesting choice of earrings. She wore the pretty blue US$7 earrings she purchased from a Bhutanese craft market during her hike to Tiger's Nest yesterday.
She also wore her signature Ray Bay wayfarer sunglasses.
Always the fashion diplomat, Kate's final outfit of the tour combined a dress by an Indian-born designer with shoes by a UK brand and earrings from Bhutan. She absolutely nailed it!

There was a formal send-off by Bhutanese officials at Paro Airport.
For the departure, Kate repeated the Alexander McQueen white eyelet skirt suit. The Duchess first wore it for the Diamond Jubilee tour of Singapore in September 2012. The two-piece bespoke skirt suit is crafted from a white broderie anglaise (eyelet) cotton fabric. The top features a deep v-neckline, belted waist and cuffed short sleeves. It is paired with a matching full a-line skirt that finishes at the knee.
@APP_Editor manged to find a photo of Kate's earrings. She wore her KIKI Lauren Yellow Gold Diamond Pave Leaf Earrings.
Kate also wore an elegant gold and diamond pendant necklace given to her by Queen Jetsun of Bhutan. The pendant motif denotes one of the eight auspicious symbols in Buddhism & symbolizes union of wisdom and great compassion.
ID UPDATE (20/04/2016)
People magazine tracked down the makers of Kate's gifted pendant necklace from the Queen of Bhutan. The Diamond & Gold Endless Knot pendant was crafted by a local Bhutanese jeweler, Sonam Rabgye. It is made from 18ct yellow gold and retails for US$1200
Following the two hour flight to Agra, William and Kate will freshen up and have lunch ahead of their much anticipated visit to the Taj Mahal.
