The Duchess of Cambridge has recorded a personal message to try and spur children on to be comfortable in their own skin.
Kate Middleton, who is pregnant with her third child, also says adults should help encourage children on to be the best versions of themselves.
In a specially-recorded video released to launch Children’s Mental Health Week 2018 (February 5-11), she said: “Childhood is an incredibly important moment in our lives.
“It is the time when we explore our personalities, discover the potential that lies within us and learn how to be ourselves.
“Our experience of the world at this early stage helps to shape who we become as adults, how we begin to feel comfortable in our own skin.”
