Kate Middleton has kept a low profile since announcing her third pregnancy in early September.

The Duchess of Cambridge is once again suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of morning sickness that she also suffered from throughout her pregnancies with Prince George and Princess Charlotte. This has caused Middleton to literally lie low over the last few weeks and even meant that she had to miss out on Prince George’s first day of school.

However, it appears the Duchess is feeling a bit better as Kensington Palace announced that she will join her husband, Prince William, and brother in law, Prince Harry, for a reception to celebrate World Mental Health Day on Oct. 10.

The event, which will take place inside Buckingham Palace, will celebrate all those working in the public health sector, Elle reported. The trio of royals will be joined by leaders from several mental health organizations from around the country. The event will also provide those working in mental health the opportunity to discuss their very important work as well as discuss where there still is progress to be made.

The three royals have long been involved in mental health charities and have made it their platform of choice. Even through her illness, Middleton showed just how important the work is to her by appearing in a video or the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, a charity that she is a patron for, just days after announcing both her pregnancy and illness.

In the clip, the Duchess introduces an explainer video on mental health saying, “It helps us all to talk about our mental health: what to say and who to talk to when we have feelings that are too big to manage on our own and how to listen and help if one of our friends is finding things difficult.”

Middleton added, “Sometimes it's just a simple conversation that can make things better.”
