Kate Middleton is a gorgeous lady in red again!

She and husband Prince William visited the charity Young Minds, a helpline for troubled kids, Thursday. The royal couple "received some of the essential training" the charity gives its volunteers, according to a tweet from Young Minds' account. The Duchess of Cambridge stunned in a red LK Bennett dress that featured capped sleeves, and chose to wear a pair of simple beige pumps and a beige clutch to offset her fiery frock.

William opted for a more laid-back look, wearing khakis, a white button-down shirt and a navy blue sport coat for the visit.

Wills and Kate toured the London center for about two hours. Young Minds is one of the eight partners of the mental health campaign they launched with Prince Harry called Heads Together. The couple wanted to see what happens when people reach out for support, a Kensington Palace statement said. Young Minds volunteer Saida Tahir, 46, told him they see a rise in calls around results time in August.

"It still gives me the heebie jeebies," he responded. "I still get sweaty palms thinking about it."

When told they'd be listening to real calls, Prince Williams asked for "an easy one" because of his emotional state.

"I'm carrying a lot of things at the moment. I'll be in floods of tears at the end otherwise," he said. "I've had too many sad families with the air ambulance so I can't have any more stuff. Something on the lower level if I can."

His comments came one day after he opened up about losing his mother, Princess Diana, while visiting Keech Hospice Care Wednesday.

While at Young Minds, both Will and Kate met with some of the volunteers who answer the calls. They asked some of them what drove them to get involved with the charity, as well as how their experiences had been.

Prince William and Kate also visited three other organizations, including Youthscape and Keech Hospice. While visiting Youthscape, the couple kicked back and played video games with some of the teens. The royals even sat down with James Corden's sister, Ruth Corden, who works with teens at Youthscape. "That's my sister!!!!!" James tweeted Wednesday. "So proud of her today and the amazing work she's doing."
