William and Kate, who along with Prince Harry front the Heads Together campaign to end mental health stigma, will attend an assembly at Mitchell Brook school in Brent, north London.
The Royal couple will attend the primary school’s assembly to launch Children’s Mental Health Week which aims to help youngsters defuse anxieties that can lead to deeper issues.
Catherine Roche, chief executive of the mental health charity Place2Be, which is organising events based on the theme of spreading kindness, said: “The support of our Royal Patron The Duchess of Cambridge since our first Children’s Mental Health Week in 2015 has been invaluable and has had a major influence on the interest generated in the week.

“It can sometimes be difficult to know what to do to help someone going through a tough time but the smallest act of kindness such as asking how someone is and listening to them can be enormously helpful.
“We are seeing a major shift in attitudes to mental health with greater understanding that our mental health is just as important as our physical health.”
