Speaking to viewers at the start of the video, Kate, who was filmed at Anmer Hall, Norfolk, said, “Talking to someone, whether it’s a friend, family member or teacher, is something thing you can do to make yourself feel a little better.

“And you can also play your part by helping others feel better too, by offering a friendly ear or helping someone in need.

“Small acts of kindness can go so far. But in helping others, we must not forget to feed ourselves, taking the time to focus on the things that make us happy too.

She continued, “We all have our ups and downs, especially when things change in our lives as they have done in many ways recently. This can cause us to have a wide range of different feelings. Sometimes these feelings can be good, but sometimes they can be uncomfortable and we feel worried, angry or upset.

“Being unable to see your friends or spend time with your family will undoubtedly be frustrating for you and for them. It was a really difficult time for all of us. But it’s important to know that these feelings and frustrations are completely normal and will not last forever.

As part of the assembly, the Duchess joined a video call with students from the Waterloo Primary Academy in Blackpool, whose parents worked on the front lines during the coronavirus pandemic.

The children shared photos they had taken and submitted to the Duchess Hold Still’s photography project, based on one of her central themes, “Acts of Kindness,” and talked about the acts of kindness they accomplished in recent weeks.

Oak National Academy was created in response to the foreclosure, supporting distance teachers to their students, and since its inception, it has delivered more than 12 million lessons to children and youth.

Every Thursday morning, the thpe Academy, in collaboration with TES, organizes assemblies for students across the UK, allowing them to experience the normal routine of a school environment.

The Duchess’ assembly is based on a lesson plan that is available on the Mentally Healthy Schools platform.

It was developed in collaboration with the children’s mental health charity Place2Be and encourages children to explore ways to show kindness and recognize the benefits of kindness to others.

Matt Hood, director of the Oak National Academy, said, “We are delighted that the Duchess of Cambridge was able to lead this week’s assembly on acts of kindness. Being kind and caring is a vital lesson for children at all times, but especially in the current pandemic. We need to encourage young people to talk about their feelings and to know that it is okay to feel a little anxious or upset at the moment.

“The Duchess’ Hold Still Contest is a fantastic way to engage children in their mental well-being by thinking about what kindness means to them and how they can show it to others.”

The Mentally Healthy Schools website was launched in 2018 by the Duchess in inheritance from the Royal Foundation’s Heads Together campaign, developed by the main charities for children’s mental health, the Anna Freud Center, Young Minds and Place2Be. The site is now managed by the Anna Freud Center.
