The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge helped launch a £5 million Government initiative today to support the UK's mental health at a time of high anxiety during the coronavirus pandemic.
William and Kate have been in regular contact with organisations and patronages to understand the issues they are facing during this difficult time. You can find out more about the 'Every Mind Matters' platform via the NHS website.
In the photo taken at her home office in Kensington Palace, the Duchess is seen wearing her dark rose Marks & Spencer pant suit. I suspect the photograph was taken on the same day William and Kate visited the London Ambulance Centre on March 11th where she wore the same outfit.
There has been a lot of interest in the books Kate has on her desk.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the London Ambulance Centre in Croydon on Thursday to meet staff who have been taking NHS 111 calls from the public, and thank them for the vital work they are doing.
During the visit, William and Kate spoke to staff members about how they are dealing with the increase in demand on the NHS 111 service.
They also heard about when members of the public can help alleviate pressure on the system by using advice available online at nhs.uk/coronavirus before contacting 111.

The Duchess of Cambridge hosted a reception at Buckingham Palace on Monday evening to celebrate the incredible work of Place2Be over the past 25 years.
The charity is the leading UK provider of school-based mental health services, providing early therapeutic intervention to help children and young people cope with issues such as bullying, bereavement, domestic violence, family breakdown, neglect and trauma. The Duchess has supported the program in her role as Patron since April 2013.
Speaking at this eveningâs reception, Kate said: âHaving visited many of your schools, meeting hundreds of your wonderful staff, children and young people, it is heart-warming to see that the support you provide is so much more than just being there in a time of desperate needâ.
The Duchess brought back the stunning royal blue Jenny Packham gown she worn for the Bollywood Charity Gala during the Royal Visit to India in 2016.
âThe chiffon silk bespoke dress was beaded in India along with the matching shawl and clutch.
âKate opted not to wear the scarf tonight.
The Duchess wore a new pair of statement earrings - the Erdem Blue Crystal And Pearl Embellished Floral Drop Earrings (Â£310).
We got a glimpse of the Jimmy Choo 'Romy 100' Silver Glitter DÃ©gradÃ© Pumps.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined The Queen and senior members of the Royal Family at Westminster Abbey this afternoon for a multi-faith service to observe Commonwealth Day.
Commonwealth Day is held on the second Monday in March each year. The event is usually attended by the Queen in her role as Head of the Commonwealth. It is a celebration of the Commonwealth of Nations which represents a global network of 54 countries working in collaboration towards shared economic, environmental, social and democratic goals.
The Commonwealth theme for 2020 is Delivering A Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming. From working to protect the earth's natural resources and preserving the planet for generations to come, to championing fair trade and empowering the youth of today to transform the communities of tomorrow, this year’s Service celebrated the Commonwealth's continued commitment to delivering a peaceful, prosperous and more sustainable future for all.
For today's service in London, the Duchess of Cambridge brought back her custom berry red Catherine Walker coat, first seen on Christmas Day 2018.
Kate added a few new accessories to her look today. She debuted the 'Sada' head piece by British milliner, Sallyann Provan.
The £460 peachbloom felt saucer hat is trimmed with hand-made silk camellias in toning shades, and finished with felt leaves in toning shades.
Kate also premiered a pair of Mouawad ruby and diamond earrings.
You may recall the Duchess wore the Mouawad ruby and diamond necklace and coordinating bracelet for the 2011 The Sun Military Awards. The earrings were not seen on this occasion. The parure was reportedly a wedding gift, though we don't know the identity of the giver.
Kate harmonized the ensemble with her burgundy Prada 'Rosa' velvet clutch (shown below in satin), and her Gianvito Rossi 'Gianvito 105' suede pumps in Royale Burgundy.
The Duchess carried the same burgundy bow gloves she wore on Christmas Day 2018.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge concluded their three day visit to the Republic of Ireland today. They traveled to the west coast for a string of engagements in Galway.

At the traditional Irish Tig Coili pub, The Duke and Duchess chatted with local Galwegians who volunteer to promote the city and its people, before going on a walkabout to meet members of the public gathered on the city centre.
