Kate Middleton has a new, exciting announcement regarding her job title!

The Duchess of Cambridge will turn Kensington Palace into a newsroom for a day when she takes over as a guest editor for The Huffington Post U.K. to raise awareness around children's mental health issues.

She will be inviting a team from HuffPo to the palace mid-February, working with them to highlight the efforts by many professionals, parents and teachers in the mental health sector.

"The Duchess of Cambridge has made the mental health of young children a key focus of her work in recent years. She is delighted that The Huffington Post will help put a spotlight on this important issue," a spokesperson for the Kensington Palace said in an official statement on Friday. "[She] will be commissioning contributions from a number of leading figures in the mental health sector as well as from young people, parents, and teachers."

The spokesperson added, "We look forward to welcoming The Huffington Post team to Kensington Palace next month."

The Huffington Post is, of course, just as thrilled to be working with Middleton, especially considering their efforts to raise awareness around the mental health subject as of late.

"We are thrilled that The Duchess of Cambridge is joining the HuffPost UK team for a day as a guest editor," said Stephen Hull, Editor-in-Chief of publication. "Dealing with mental health issues has been a major editorial focus for us, and I'm very excited to be working together on such an important project."

Middleton has spent quite some time focusing her work on children's mental health. In fact, her first solo appearance after giving birth to Princess Charlotte was to visit the Anna Freud Centre in London in September. During the visit, she learned about the program's work in treating children and young people struggling with mental health problems.

Needless to say, she has a strong grasp on the issue, and we can't wait to read her work.
