A spokesman from Kensington Palace said: "The Duchess is delighted that her Huffington Post issue will help put a spotlight on the important issue and the inspiring work being done by parents, teachers, researchers and mental health professionals across the country. We look forward to inviting the editorial team of the Huffington Post to the Palace next month."

As guest editor the Duchess plans to commission articles from experts, parents and youngsters to highlight mental health issues. She has previously said how she is determined to give children combating mental issues "the secure childhood she enjoyed".

Huffington Post editor-in-chief Stephen Hull added: "Dealing with mental health issues has been a major editorial focus for us and I'm thrilled to be working together [with the Duchess of Cambridge] on such an important project."
