Princess Kate gave some cheerful advice to a young speaker at Stewards Academy in Harlow, north of London, on Friday.
People magazine reports that Kate and Prince William were touring the school when a 15-year-old student named Hannah was set to give a speech before their introduction. Hannah later confessed to being nervous, but at their meeting afterward, Hannah said Kate told her, "I should always keep performing and I should never give up on my dreams."
The teen was so inspired she gushed, "That is going to stay with me for the rest of my life."
The visit was part of the royal couple's support of the Heads Together campaign, designed to raise awareness of mental health issues.
