Kate Middleton recycled a blue tweed jacket while praising teachers for their hard work on a video call with teachers from County Durham.


The Duchess of Cambridge looked gorgeous in a recycled blue tweed jacket while on a video call with Ribbon Academy teachers in Country Durham in England.

Middleton asked the staff quick-fire questions about how children were doing during the lockdown and being taught online. The teachers all gave hopeful answers.


The conversation was supported by Place2Be, which is a children's mental health charity that provided training sessions to over 500 000 teachers across the UK.

The five-week course focused on child mental health topics such as factors that contribute to healthy mental health. Middleton spoke to one of the staff members who had completed the course:

"It's so important that you're looked after too and have the appropriate networks and support systems to make sure you can really do the best job you possible can. "

The Duchess wore a tweed jacket made by Rebecca Taylor, a New-Zealand designer. She was previously seen wearing the coat during a trip to Ronald McDonald House Evelina London.


She had been visited with families who had benefitted from new accommodation. These families were seeking treatment at the Evelina London Children's Hospital.

Since 2015, Middleton has supported the annual Children's Mental Health Week.

Middleton has been known to re-wear items of clothing, which is not common practice for the royals. She chose to style the jacket with her hair in a pony tie and light makeup.

She used the conversation with the teachers to praises them for all the hard work they had been doing for their students during the lockdown in England. She said:

"I wanted to say a massive thank you to teachers across the country for doing fantastic jobs. It's been really hard work but please look after yourselves."


The Duchess sported a similar jacket by the same designer in 2012, which was the same shade of blue and featured a floral appliqué along the neckline.

Middleton has found a style that suits her so well, as she had managed to make the style work for her over almost ten years.

Since 2015, Middleton has supported the Children's Mental Health Week each year, highlighting and bringing awareness to the importance of mental health in children and young people.

The Duke and Duchess have been residing in Norfolk in their home at Anmer Hall, with their three children, Princess Charlotte, Prince George, and Prince Louis.
