The visit was no doubt especially poignant for the couple given Prince Harry’s recent summit talks with his grandmother the Queen.

Dressed in a long olive green Alexander McQueen coat – worn over a houndstooth Zara dress – Kate showed no sign of any strain as she accompanied her husband on the royal engagement.

On the Bradford trip, William appeared relaxed and happy as he greeted officials waiting in the city’s Centenary Square.

For brothers who care so deeply about the issues surrounding mental health, the use of inflammatory language in this way is offensive and potentially harmful.

The visit comes after William and Harry were forced to issue a statement denying that William had “bullied” his younger brother into stepping down.

It said: “Despite clear denials, a false story ran in a UK newspaper today speculating about the relationship between The Duke of Sussex and The Duke of Cambridge.”
