The Duchess of Cambridge put up a fight against bullying Wednesday morning, spending a second day visiting a charity, this time in London's financial district.
Arriving right before 10:30 at a forum for one of her favorite charities, Place2Be, which provides school-based mental health and emotional support services to kids and parents, Kate received a bouquet from a schoolgirl as the day's wind kept flipping up her skirt.
Inside, experts discussed such topics as cyberbullying, self-harm, special education needs and preventing addiction, all of which proved of such interest to Kate that she decided to stay a full hour longer than planned.

Prince Harry's goodbye kiss will have to last Cressida Bonas for five weeks as he treks across Antarctica to raise awareness for wounded soldiers.
The prince, 29, heads for Cape Town, South Africa, on Sunday to take part in Walking with the Wounded's South Pole Allied Challenge – a race that spans over 200 miles in temperatures that can dip to 50 degrees below zero. The competition will involve three seven-man teams from the U.K., the U.S., Australia and Canada. During that time, none of the participants will be calling home.
"He won't get to speak to his girlfriend for about four weeks, which is tough, but it's the same for everyone," Walking with the Wounded's cofounder Ed Parker tells PEOPLE. "There's no airs and graces. He's a soldier, he really gets who we are and what we are trying to do, and we're lucky to have him on board, especially for the whole five weeks."

Prince William and Prince Harry helped lead Britain in commemorating the country's war dead on Sunday.
William, 31, who served as a RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot until September, was watched by wife Kate as he laid a wreath of poppies at a memorial in central London. He followed his brother, army captain Harry, 29, who donned his ceremonial Household Cavalry great coat with wide red collar, in paying tribute on behalf of his father, Prince Charles (who is in India with wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall).
As in previous years, Kate, 31, watched from a balcony above Whitehall, central London, alongside William?s aunt Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Tim Laurence, the husband of Princess Anne. Kate donned a brooch in the shape of a poppy – the traditional symbol worn to honor those who have perished in wars.

Following his late mother's lead, Prince William is taking a practical approach to his leadership role at the Royal Marsden Hospital.
Like Princess Diana before him, William is the president of the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust – a patronage he took on in 2007. After witnessing two operations take place Thursday, he stepped out of the London hospital's Chelsea location and, smiling, declared he felt "good – still standing!"
In images reminiscent of his late mother's viewing of a heart operation in 1996, William, 31, scrubbed up and wore a surgical mask to see the experts at work.

Taylor Swift is used to the pressure of performing for millions. But putting on a show for just relatively few can be even more nerve-wracking – especially when the group includes a future king.
"I'm really excited," the singer, 23, told the BBC before Wednesday's CMAs about her Nov. 26 charity gig at the home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. "I'm really stoked. This is the first thing I've performed at for any kind of royal engagement – very, very honored."
But also very, very nervous, at least when it comes to the proper etiquette – her "her royal P's and Q's," as BBC Radio 2's Patrick Kielty put it.

Prince Harry is well known for being able to take a joke, but maybe this one crossed a line.
A comedy show in Britain is being accused of degrading the royal family after including a sexually explicit joke about the prince in one of its sketches.
At one point during Monday's broadcast of Fresh Meat on Channel 4, one character said to another: "I'll take you to a place on the King's Road where Prince Harry got a hand j–– off an assistant manager at Abercrombie & Fitch."
