The Duchess of Cambridge has kept a low profile since announcing the news of her third baby (and her pregnancy condition, hyperemesis gravidarum), but Kate Middleton’s first scheduled public appearance is sooner than you think.
According to Kensington Palace, Middleton will join her husband, Prince William, and her brother-in-law, Prince Harry, in celebrating World Mental Health Day on October 10. The royal trio will honor those who work in the mental-health sector by holding a reception at Buckingham Palace.
Middleton is a known mental-health advocate and regularly encourages others to destigmatize the issue. She even appeared (waist up) in a PSA earlier this week to stress the importance of openly discussing mental illness.
Naturally, her much-publicized baby-bump debut will also bring awareness to the cause so close to her heart. And why not use her power of maternity fashion for good?
