Kate Middleton was pretty in pink as she made her first official appearance since returning from the royal Canada tour last week.

The Duchess of Cambridge was joined by her husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry for an event at County Hall in London to mark World Mental Health Day.

The mother-of-two injected some colour into the dreary day in a floral pink Kate Spade 'Encore Rose' dress, which retails for €475, paired with her trademark nude heels.

Later today, they will ride on the London Eye to meet with young people sharing their mental health conditions, one of the trio's most passionate causes as part of their work for Heads Together.

On arrival, she was given a posy by 17-year-old Joanne Sibly, who was sent as a representative of Merlin's Magic Wand, which grants wishes to sick children.

Today's appearance isn't their only work to be carried out this week - the Duke and Duchess will visit Manchester on Friday to visit a hospice opened by the late Princess Diana.

Heads Together was founded by Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and has brought together eight mental health charities and organisations to tackle the stigma around depression and other psychological problems.

Earlier this year, Kate expressed her support for the UK's first Child Mental Health Awareness Week, while William said he wouldn't hesitate in seeking help for one of his children Prince George (three) or Princess Charlotte (one).

"In particular, it is a time to reflect on my responsibility to look after not just the physical health of my two children, but to treat their mental needs as just as important a priority," he said in June.

Meanwhile, Harry recently opened up about his regrets at not speaking about his mother Princess Diana's death until he was 28.

Harry was 12 and his brother William 15 when Diana was killed in a car crash in Paris on August 31 1997.

"I really regret not ever talking about it. It's OK to suffer, as long as you talk about it," he said last month.

"It's not a weakness. Weakness is having a problem and not recognising it and not solving that problem."
