Prince William Makes a Corny Dad Joke at Kate Middleton's Expense

Prince William Makes a Corny Dad Joke at Kate Middleton's Expense

They also visited a "friendship bench", which was a Zimbabwean project that aimed to teach older women in the country how to help those struggling with mental health with talks on the benches.

The royal donned a chic lilac Emilia Wickstead dress, which she teamed with a pair of pointed nude stilettos and a matching handbag.

A major policy up for discussion was the declaration committing to putting mental health on an equal footing with physical health.

Kate Middleton and Prince William stepped out for their first joint engagement together on Tuesday since the birth of their third child, Louis, in April.

The royal couple met artist Dairo Vargas who created a painting especially for the Summit entitled Someone To Turn To and he gave the Duke and Duchess the opportunity to add to it.

"Where can you hide it", Kate joked as she painted a white stroke, and which point Prince William said, "It's nearly ruined the picture", before adding, "No, this is probably how you ruin a picture" as he took his turn.

Her husband was only delighted to make a joke and said that his wife's handiwork had nearly "ruined the picture" but as you'll see from snaps and videos of the event, she saw the amusing side of his remark.

The Duke and Duchess viewed a work stream on "Children, Young People and the Next Generation" where they listened to presentations on two case studies of active mental health programmes in Slovenia and the US.

Last month Prince William opened up about the emotional toll of witnessing suffering during his time as an air ambulance pilot.

Wearing a plaid Erdem dress, Kate completed her look with a purple belt and a small clutch.

The couple is also preparing for another big event on Friday when William's cousin, Princess Eugenie, celebrates her Royal Wedding to fiance, Jack Brooksbank, at Windsor Castle.
