Kate, 39, and William, 38, attended a school in East London together just days after Harry and Meghan’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey. The Duke and Duchess visited School 21 in Stratford.
They were there to support teachers and students as they returned to school.
The school, which is a free school, takes children from age four to 18.
William and Kate met with students and teachers to oversee the rollout of a mental health project for pupils.
The Duchess has been involved in a number of mental health projects aimed at children, along with Heads together.
Both the Duke and the Duchess took time to speak with children during the sweet visit.

She said: “With his legs stretched out as he sits on the ground, William holds a clipboard on his lap and uses an eye-gaze and frown to suggest intense listing as he turns a royal visit to a really special, sweet and personal moment for the young boy he is sitting with.
“By giving the boy his entire attention and sitting at his height, William clearly boosts the child’s confidence by making him feel important and in charge.
“Getting down to that level and up again must have been hard for the tall royal but it is an act of mirroring that would have been unthinkable a generation ago.”
It was during this event Prince William told reporters “we are very much not a racist family,” following accusations from his brother Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle.
Meghan and Harry told Oprah there were questions about the colour of Archie’s skin asked by members of the Royal Family when Meghan was pregnant with the couple’s first child.
After the interview with Oprah, Buckingham Palace responded to the claims.
The statement read: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.
“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately.”
Judi James told Express.co.uk Kate and William looked as “tight as ever” in their first public outing since Harry and Meghan’s interview.
The expert claims the couple, who have been married since 2011, regularly mirror each other’s body language, especially when sitting down and speaking to others.
She explained: “Even back-to-back here the couple use intense postural echo, standing posed with feet slightly splayed and their hands clasped in front of their torsos as they chat to each of their hosts.
“This gesture suggests team Cambridge is as tight as ever, with shared thinking and a desire to create an impression of an evenly-balanced double-act.”
