Kate Middleton has kept a very low profile since announcing that she's pregnant with her third baby, but she finally came out of hiding for a cause near and dear to her heart. The Duchess of Cambridge introduced a short film about mental health, and given how she must be feeling, she looks phenomenal.

George and Charlotte's mom suffers from hyperemesis gravidarum, a severe form of pregnancy sickness that includes excessive vomiting and even caused her to be hospitalized. In fact, it's one of the reasons Kensington Palace decided to confirm the pregnancy reports -- it had gotten out that Kate had visited the hospital.

Anyway, given that she probably hurled both before and after this was filmed, we're seriously impressed. We'd never even know she was pregnant if it hadn't been announced. 

It makes sense that Kate would make her first public appearance over an issue that she cares so deeply about. The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families put together a video for their You're Never Too Young to Talk Mental Health campaign, which encourages kids to ask for help in dealing with those "big feelings."

Kate says in the intro, "It helps us all talk about our mental health, what to say and who to talk to when we have feelings that are too big to manage on our own, and how to listen and help if one of our friends is finding things difficult."

Along with her husband, Prince William, and brother-in-law, Prince Harry, Kate has worked on several campaigns for mental health awareness, including their own Heads Together initiative. It's a topic that means a lot to her, as evidenced by her willingness to drag herself out of bed to record this short video intro.

We hope that Kate's morning sickness gets better as her pregnancy progresses -- we can't wait to see her out and about, sporting a sweet little baby bump. Until then, we just hope she gets some much-needed rest.
