Duchess of Cambridge to read CBeebies Bedtime Story

The Duchess has chosen to read childhood classic The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson.

Children's Mental Health week runs from 7 to 14 February and the duchess chose the book because it chimed with this year's theme of "growing together".
