THE Duchess of Cambridge was the picture of happiness yesterday when she told young pupils what cheers her up.

Kate produced a treasured photo of her family as she joined a class of primary school children who had been asked to take in an object that makes them happy.

The image, used for her and Prince William’s latest Christmas card, showed the couple with their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Sitting at a table with the pupils, she said: ‘These are my children and this is my husband. And my family makes me feel happy. And we like playing outside together and spending lots of time together as a family. And that makes me feel very happy.’

The duchess, 37, was at Lavender school in Enfield, north London, to mark Children’s Mental Health Week.

She chatted to children about how foods such as sugar give you brief euphoria but your emotions can come crashing down. ‘It’s interesting how food and energy and how you feel work together,’ she said.

The duchess, wearing a green £2,100 Eponine dress, later visited Alperton community school, where Andria Zafirakou was named the world’s best teacher.
