Duchess of Cambridge launches new school counselling programme in Manchester
The Duchess of Cambridge was today greeted by a wave of St George’s Day flags from cheering schoolchildren as she arrived to launch a counselling programme.
Kate visited The Willows Primary School in Wythenshawe, Greater Manchester, to launch a project to reduce the impact of drug and alcohol addiction on children and their families.
At six months into her pregnancy, Kate’s baby bump was clearly visible under her patterned blue silk floral dress by Sophia Visconti.
The school counselling initiative is a partnership between charities Place2Be and Action on Addiction with funding from Comic Relief and the Royal Foundation of which the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry are patrons.
Action on Addiction will train, supervise and support Place2Be counsellors to deliver the programme in school settings across England.
