The Duchess of Cambridge and John Bishop launched a counselling programme called M-PACT Plus in 2013.
The initiative brings together multiple charities that help families that are affected by addiction, by supporting children who are experiencing the effects of parental substance misuse.
Today, Kate and John visited the Blessed Sacrament School in Islington, north London to check out the work being done.
Kate (32) looked suitably regal in a crimson dress by Goat, paired with her signature nude court shoes and a simple box clutch bag.
As a dad of three, comedian John was on hand to offer parenting advice to new mum Kate.
The 47-year-old made her laugh when he joked that not so long ago he had a little baby and now he has a 'bloke with a beard'.
The Liverpool comedian also acts as an ambassador for Comic Relief, which has helped to fund the project.
He later commented that he thought the birth of her son George would make Kate even more dedicated to the cause for which she is so “genuinely committed to”.
He said: "I think, from the brief conversations I've had with her, she's committed to it as a person and probably even more so now as a mother, because you realise children are such fragile things and you've got to try and support them when they're at their weakest."
