Kate and William made an unannounced visit to BBC Radio 1 today.
The couple was there on behalf of their Heads Together initiative.
They were also there to surprise radio personality Adele Roberts. More via the BBC:
Adele Roberts is running the London Marathon in aid of charity Heads Together, which is supported by Prince William and Catherine.
“Huge thanks to people like Adele,” Prince William told hosts Scott Mills and Chris Stark.
More from the BBC:
Speaking about their mental health campaign, Prince William described how “eye-opening” the experience had been. “This issue of mental health is really brimming under the surface of public consciousness,” he said.
Catherine said she was keen to promote the “power of a simple conversation” when it comes to tackling mental health.
She said young mums she had spoken to in the past had said talking about their feelings could be “like medicine”.
While at the studios they met with several on-air personalities.
And they also spent time on the air.
This photo provides a look at the back of Kate’s blouse.
The conversation wasn’t limited to Heads Together and this Sunday’s race. Back to that BBC Radio story:
The Duke and Duchess also revealed they watch “a lot” of children’s programmes with their children.
“George has gone past Peppa Pig,” he said, adding that Fireman Sam was a big hit in their house at the moment.
They even introduced the weekly Top 10 show.

The most interesting thing about Kate’s outfit? The trousers.
It is difficult to see in the one photo that we have showing Kate’s legs, but you can just see that she is not wearing skinny jeans, but trousers or denim with a straight or flared leg. That is quite a surprise!
Kate wore a blouse by Temperley London from the label’s Autumn 2017 collection. It is called the Cypre Pointelle Frill Top, shown below right. It features a slim fit with ruffled neck, tiered ruffles and flared cuffs. The piece is 100% spun rayon and is referred to as a ‘pullover style‘ on the Moda Operandi website, there must be a fair amount of stretch in that fabric. The piece was priced at $550 when it was available for pre-ordering. (Below left you can also see the Cypre Pointelle Frill Dress.) Our thanks to Kates Closet for the speedy ID on this item.
You can see some of those design elements in other pieces from the collection.
Styles from the Autumn collection will be available starting in June at Temperley.
Also today, a new film was released by Kate, William and Harry.
The 7-minute video features the trio talking about the origins of Heads Together and the benefits of discussing mental health issues. You can view the video below, or watch it on the Heads Together site, or on YouTube.
Hopefully there will be better photos of today’s Radio 1 visit; if so I will update the post as soon as they’re available. We’ll leave you with this photo of Kate and William in their Heads Together digital headbands.
And Happy Birthday greetings to HM, celebrating her 91st birthday today.
