Duke and Duchess of Cambridge ended their royal Scandinavian tour in an adventurous and fun way. They were again accompanied by Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit.
The royal couple began at the Hartvig Nissen School, which was the location for the hugely successful Norwegian television programme Skam. The Duke and Duchess received a warm welcome at Hartvig Nissen Skole where they met @nrkp3 #SKAM stars, students, and school nurses to discuss how #SKAM helped Norwegian teenagers discuss mental health issues.
The Duke and Duchess, accompanied by The Crown Prince and Princess of Norway, meet the stars of Skam to hear more about the making of the series.
Mental health is a theme that has occupied both the Duke couple and Crown Prince Couple, and SKAM addresses many of the challenges young people face in today’s society.

The SKAM series deals with identity, bullying, sexual harassment, and other difficult topics.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined students and mental health support staff to chat about the impact of Skam, and the effect it had on bringing important issues out into the open.

The British couple took the time to greet students outside school. Catherine chatted about her A-levels and St Andrews. The Duchess “After school, I went onto university where I met William, St Andrews University in Scotland, But I can’t complain about that being here”.
The Duchess and Crown Prince Haakon were in conversation with Ulrikke Falch and Carl Martin Eggesbø at Hartvig Nissen.
The couple met the cast and discussed the themes covered in the show at Hartvig Nissen. The royal couple and Crown Prince pair with SKAM actors in the stairs at Hartvig Nissen for an official photograph.
After the school visit, Crown Prince and Princess welcomed Prince William and Duchess Catherine for lunch at Skaugum.
The Duke and Duchess arrived for lunch.
Crown couple’s Dog Milly Kakao used the opportunity to get acquainted with British Couples. Duchess herself is a dog lover. She seemed to take a liking to Milly immediately.
For the first part of the day, Duchess was wearing Dolce and Gabbana brown double-breasted military-style buttoned coat. Here shown in black color.
Crafted of luxurious virgin wool, the design is characterized by its two-line button fastening, classic collar, piqued shoulders, and slim long sleeves, drawing in at the waist with darts and falling with a gentle flare to the knee. A coat is complete with two flap pockets, a rear central vent, and a full leopard print lining, a signature of the house.
Underneath, the Duchess wore a gorgeous dress from the Norwegian brand byTiMo. The Black Lace Trimmed Shift Dress features oval-heckled lace detailing on the collar, on the shoulders, and in the waistline. The neckline of the dress was seemed to be modified for Duchess.
The floral print piece is from the Pre Spring 2018 Collection and is available for $285 on the byTiMo website. The Designer Tine Mollatt was among the guests at the black-tie dinner at the Palace and last night expressed her delight, “An incredibly proud moment. We are very grateful that she chose a dress from us”.
Duchess paired the outfit with Tod’s black suede block heel pumps.
She wore her Cornelia James Beatrice gloves and carried her Mulberry Bayswater clutch.
The Duchess accessorized her looks with her Mappin & Webb Empress earrings.
