Kate Middleton and Prince William returned to work after a much-needed break with their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, who were on school holiday.

The couple, known as the Duke and Duchess of Rothesay while in Scotland, made their first joint engagement in three weeks by visiting organizations that support rural communities in Moray. Dressed in matching green jackets adorned with red poppy pins, a symbolic accessory that commemorates military members who have perished in wars, the royal couple embraced the spirit of Remembrance Day.

Their first stop was Outfit Moray in Burghead, where they wanted to learn more about how local groups support the mental health of young people through outdoor activities.

Outfit Moray is a charity that aims to develop the potential of young individuals by providing affordable outdoor learning and adventure opportunities. They focus on life skills and overall health, and have worked with over 16,000 young people since starting in 2003.

The activities offered by Outfit Moray include mountain biking, paddlesports, rock climbing, archery, and bushcraft. They also organize school programs such as cycle training, bike maintenance, and first aid. To get a firsthand experience, Kate and William decided to try out mountain biking at Burghead Primary School. They even wore helmets for safety as they rode through the course.

During their visit, the royal couple talked with the team at Outfit Moray and connected with people who have benefited from the organization's work. Mental health is a key focus for the couple's charity, The Royal Foundation, and they have been actively involved in raising awareness and breaking the stigmas surrounding it through their Heads Together campaign. Kate, in particular, has shown a strong interest in early childhood and childhood development, making the Outfit Moray stop a perfect fit.

Before leaving, Kate and William received three teddy bears as gifts for their children. They then moved on to Brodieshill Farm, where they met members of the Lower Speyside Young Farmers and representatives from Farmstrong Scotland. The Lower Speyside Young Farmers and Farmstrong Scotland both aim to promote mental wellness in rural Scottish communities, with different focuses for different age groups. The young farmers' group creates opportunities for socializing among those aged 14 to 29, while Farmstrong Scotland focuses on the well-being of adult farmers and rural communities.

At Brodieshill Farm, the royal couple also had the chance to meet families who attend sessions at the farm's play area.

This specialized space was designed to bring families together and foster a sense of community for those stationed at the nearby RAF Kinloss and RAF Lossiemouth bases. The connection to the Royal Air Force holds a special place in Kate and William's hearts, as William served as an RAF Search and Rescue pilot when they got married and had their first child.

The visit to Scotland was not just a return to work for Kate Middleton and Prince William, but also an opportunity to learn about and support organizations that focus on mental health and community well-being. Their dedication to these causes has been evident throughout their charity work, and they continue to make a difference in people's lives.
