The Duchess of Cambridge is set to follow in the footsteps of countless A-list celebrities by making a special appearance on CBeebies.

It has been announced that Kate will be reading a CBeebies Bedtime Story on Sunday to mark Children’s Mental Health Week, as well as the channel’s 20th birthday.

A sneak peek photo shows Kate sitting cross-legged looking casual in jeans and a comfy jumper sitting by a fire as she prepares to read The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson.

The book follows the story of Plop, a baby barn owl, who is helped by others to grow in confidence and overcome his fears – and the story aligns with this years’ theme of the week which is growing together.

CBeebies Bedtime Stories airs every night at 6.50pm as the final part of the channel’s hour-long bedtime segment.

But rather than have unknown presenters, stars such as Dolly Parton, Tom Hardy and Bridgerton’s Rege-Jean Page have all rocked up to lull little ones to sleep recently.

Patricia Hidalgo, director of BBC Children’s and Education said: “I couldn’t be more proud to have the Duchess read a CBeebies Bedtime Story as we mark the 20th anniversary of our CBeebies and CBBC channels.

“It’s such a special and relevant tale and perfectly represents this year’s Children’s Mental Health week theme.

“I can’t wait to see her deliver her own take on such a classic story and I’m sure our audience can’t either.”

Kate has been heavily involved in championing children’s mental health and has taken a keen interest in early years development.

Just last week, it was announced that she would be carrying out a fact-finding mission to Denmark as part of her Royal Foundation Center for Early Childhood.

Kensington Palace revealed that she will be flying solo when she travels to the capital Copenhagen for a two-day visit on February 22 and 23 without husband Prince William.

It is the first time that Kate will bring the centre’s work to the international stage and on the trip and she hopes to learn from Denmark’s example as a country widely recognized as a world leader in its approach and investment in early childhood development.

In a personal tweet, the duchess said: “Looking forward to learning from experts, parents & practitioners about Denmark’s approach to early childhood later this month.

“Denmark is a beacon of best practice in its approach to the early years, with a culture which prioritizes the best start in life.”

She ended the message with the Danish words “Pa snarligt gensyn”, which translate as “See you soon”, and the letter “C” to denote a personal tweet.

The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark read by The Duchess of Cambridge will air on CBeebies Bedtime Stories at 6.50pm on Sunday, February 13.
