Princess Kate had a busy day on Tuesday, visiting the Windsor Family Hub during the day and as she spoke with members of staff and mothers at the group, the royal made a very relatable comment when it came to dealing with stress.

The Princess was present at a drop-in health visitors clinic and a baby massage session at the centre where she spoke to mothers from the Punjabi community. Upon learning about the organisation's stress management course, she quipped: "I'll come here and pick up some tips!" Kate had previously spoken to staff and the mothers and babies it helps online.

Sharing her thoughts, the mum-of-three spoke of the need to "normalise our emotional world in a safe environment" before she thanked the staff and mothers she met and headed off on a home visit.

Princess Kate has dedicated her time to raising awareness of the critical importance of early childhood and in January 2023, with The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, launched Shaping Us, a campaign that aims to transform the issue of early childhood, from one of scientific interest to one of the most strategically important topics of our time.

The royal’s casual ensemble followed a standout style moment from last week. The Prince and Princess of Wales joined guests at the wedding banquet to celebrate newlyweds Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan and Rajwa Al Saif's marriage on 1 June.

Kate glittered in a pink sequin gown by one of her go-to fashion designers, Jenny Packham, which she teamed with the diamond and pearl Lover's Knot tiara, once worn frequently by her late mother-in-law, Diana, Princess of Wales.
