Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, had a “new look” when Kensington Palace released footage of her. The royal had been highlighting the start of Children’s Mental Health Week with a selfie video. HeirPod host Omid Scobie and ABC News Foreign Correspondent Maggie Rulli discussed how the Duchess’ laidback appearance related to what she was talking about.
Mr Scobie told listeners: “Kate took it to the outdoors in the way she knows best.
“We’ve heard her talk a lot about the importance of spending time outside.
“Apparently it was filmed after she went for a run at her Anmer Hall estate.
“Hence why he was wearing a beanie and casual clothing.”

Ms Rulli agreed: “I was going to say that the beanie is a new look for her.
“All of a sudden, I was like ‘Was that Kate? Is that Kate talking to me right now?’
“It was sort of unexpected but I loved it.
“I thought it was so welcoming and down to earth.”
Kate and Prince William’s Royal Foundation spearheads a mental health initiative called ‘Heads Together’.
The Duchess also showed her passion for helping children when she launched her ‘5 Big Questions on the Under Fives’ survey to get experiences and opinions of the earliest years of children’s lives.
As patron of Place2Be, a charity which seeks to improve children’s mental health in schools, Kate made sure to mark this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week.
In the video she said: “This is a hugely challenging time for us all so please look after yourself too.
“Find those ways in which to share your thoughts and your feelings or find someone to talk to because we really do need to be the very best versions of ourselves for the children in our care.”
