Duchess Kate to edit Huffington Post UK

Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, will try her hand at a different kind of role in mid-February: She will serve as a guest editor for the Huffington Post UK for a day.

The duchess, who is married to Prince William, will guest edit the news site in order to raise awareness of children's mental health issues, her office told Reuters.

The royal mom of two will invite a team from the Huffington Post to Kevnsington Palace and work with them to feature the work of teachers, parents, researchers and mental health professionals.

"The Duchess of Cambridge has made the mental health of young children a key focus of her work in recent years. She is delighted that The Huffington Post will help put a spotlight on this important issue," Kensington Palace said in a statement. "The Duchess will be commissioning contributions from a number of leading figures in the mental health sector as well as from young people, parents, and teachers."

One of the charities Duchess Kate will highlight is Place2Be, which provides school-based mental health and emotional support services.

"We are thrilled that The Duchess of Cambridge is joining the HuffPost UK team for a day as a guest editor," said Stephen Hull, Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post UK. "Dealing with mental health issues has been a major editorial focus for us and I'm very excited to be working together on such an important project."
