Royal couple Prince William and Kate Middleton visited volunteers of mental health charity Mind today.
The pair attended Harrow College in north west London where they met with young people who had battled with their mental health in the past.
The couple were carrying out the official engagement to highlight mental health issues, and learn more about the charity's latest campaign 'Time to Change'.
Paul Farmer, CEO of Mind, said that the couple's support was invaluable to the charity.
"Their support will shine a spotlight on mental health and we hope it will spark conversations in households across the country, amplifying the vital message that it's time to talk about mental health.
"We hope it will encourage people to think about the little things we can all do to make a difference to anyone experiencing a mental health problem."
Today marks international World Mental Health Day, which aims to shine a light on issues and dispel any related stigma.
Prince William took part in an anti-bullying workshop run by Mind, which previously won the 'Diana Award'.
Meanwhile, Kate also visited the Anna Freud centre which works with children and young adults affected with mental health issues.
The mother-of-two was dressed in a knitted monochrome number from American designer Tory Burch.
