Duchess Of Cambridge Visits Scottish Primary School With Children's Charity Place2Be

The Duchess of Cambridge took part in a sing-a-long on a visit to an Edinburgh school on Wednesday as she continued to spread the Young Minds Matter message.

Kate joined hundreds of pupils at St Catherine's Primary for a special assembly where she sang and performed hand actions during a performance to welcome the royal visitor, the Press Association reported.

The school is one of 28 in Scotland where counsellors from children's mental health charity Place2Be, of which the Duchess is a patron, are on hand to support pupils having difficulties.

The Duchess met teachers to discuss the programme after singing along to 'Welcome Everybody' at an assembly where youngsters presented her with a Quaich, a Scottish toasting cup.

She told pupils: "I think everybody should start their morning like that. Have a wonderful day."

She is visiting three school-based charity projects linked to causes close to her heart.

Place2Be works in schools in some of the most disadvantaged areas of Glasgow and Edinburgh.

It provides support and therapy to pupils in need, including those who have experienced a family breakdown, bereavement or domestic abuse.
