Kate, 37, teamed the boucle two-piece, believed to be by Dolce & Gabbana, with her Tod’s suede pumps and her Mulberry Bayswater clutch bag.

The mum-of-three was at the event to learn more about the ways in which mental health modules are being integrated on teaching training programmes and the role of leaders in creating a culture of wellbeing in schools.

Kate also joined a meeting with teachers and specialists from the sector to further discuss the potential impact of consistent mental health teacher training, as well as the challenges facing its implementation.

The event was hosted by BBC presenter Kate Silverton, who welcomed the Duchess: “As you will know [she] has been a great driving force behind the Royal Foundation’s work supporting children in their earliest years.

“And, Your Royal Highness, it’s an honour to have you here with us today.”

The Duchess formed a steering group last year consisting of health experts, academics and charity heads to research the correlation between early years and those who experience mental health problems in later life. Their findings will reportedly be revealed later this year.

Speaking at the conference, Kate said: “The scientific and other evidence is clear the first few years of a child’s life are more pivotal for development and for future health and happiness than any other single moment in our life time.

“It is also clear that the positive development of our children is directly linked to those who care for them, teachers, carers and parents.

“And as we have heard today, it is therefore vital that we support teachers with their own wellbeing so that they can find the best level of care for all children, in their schools and communities in which they work.”

On Wednesday night, the Duchess will attend the 100 Women in Finance Gala Dinner in support of ‘Mentally Healthy Schools’ – one of the programmes from the Heads Together campaign.

Kate launched the initiative last year, which provides primary schools with information, advice and resources to help them understand and promote children’s mental health and wellbeing.
