The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are due to attend the first Global Ministerial Mental Health Summit - an initiative to help improve mental health around the world. The royal couple are of course, pretty passionate about raising awareness of mental health issues, having launched the Royal Foundation's Heads Together campaign with Prince Harry in 2016.

William immediately put Kate forward saying she is the "arty one", we're guessing this stems from her art history degree, and so she added a brush stroke to the painting.

Another policy up for discussion is a declaration committing to putting mental health on an equal footing with physical health.

The royal couple arrived to attend multiple presentations on case studies of active mental health programs and also met with young people to speak about their experiences with mental health.

The Duchess, who returned from maternity leave last week, wore a lilac Emilia Wickstead fit and flare dress with her Gianvito Rossi 105 pumps in praline and a £595 Aspinal crocodile embossed cross body bag.

It's the royal couple's first joint public duty since Kate gave birth to Prince Louis on 23 April.

The royals also visited a stand run by United for Global Mental Health and heard about the work of Dixon Chibanda, who started an initiative in Zimbabwe.

Her husband was only delighted to make a joke and said that his wife's handiwork had nearly "ruined the picture" but as you'll see from snaps and videos of the event, she saw the amusing side of his remark.

Catherine - who also has children Prince George, five, and three-year-old Princess Charlotte - then praised the artist for his work.

Last month Prince William opened up about the emotional toll of witnessing suffering during his time as an air ambulance pilot.
