Luciana Berger, chair of the MMHA, which was founded in 2011, previously said the charity was 'honoured' to have Middleton on board.

She said: 'The duchess's longstanding dedication to the early years and keen interest in mental health marry beautifully with the Alliance's mission to ensure every mum, baby and family affected by perinatal mental health problems can access the right care and support necessary.

'We look forward to working with the duchess to make this goal a reality for all.'

Last month, Middleton and the Queen's daughter Princess Anne visited London's headquarters of the Royal College of Midwives and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) to raise awareness of women's healthcare.

Middleton became a patron for RCOG in 2018, and a lot of her public work focuses on early childhood development, including during pregnancy.

In 2021, the duchess visited students studying neuroscience at Nower Hill High School in Harrow, North London, to educate them on early childhood development.

According to People, she told the class: 'I completely found it interesting,' reported People.

'It's a real passion of mine. Learning about babies' brains, about how our adult brains develop and how our early childhood influences the adults we become.'

The Royal household also commemorated her for wanting to 'dig deeper into the current early years landscape'.

A statement from the household noted that 'Her Royal Highness is committed to this crucial cause'.
