At the Rugby World Cup’s opening ceremony in London, Kate Middleton and Prince William both wore royal blue and matching smiles. The late-September event was one of the first they’ve attended together since the birth of Princess Charlotte in May.
“They were very unified — clapping and cheering for England’s team,” says an observer. That unity will be on even greater display in the coming weeks as William and Kate promote Mind, a charity that focuses on children’s mental health, in collaboration with World Mental Health Day.

After four years of marriage and two children, Kate and Will, both 33, are a formidable team — and that teamwork extends into their private lives, too. The modern couple are hands-on with their kids, dividing the day-to-day care of their little ones, 5-month-old Charlotte and Prince George, 2, between them.
