The Duchess lovingly consoled the mother – Ceri Knapton from Preston, Lancashire and put her arms around Ceri.

Ethan, Knapton’s son aged 13 years had opened up and spoke to the duchess about his condition during the Children’s mental health charity event.

Knapton recounted, “The Duchess leaned over me and said, “I have got to give you a hug as a mum”. She was thrilled about the duchess kind gesture.

A diagnosis assisted me in coping with the different experiences I faced during the course, said Ethan to Duchess.

I decided that I wanted to speak out about it. There is no point in sitting back. I’d rather stand up and make a difference

, Ethan added

Kate recollected the tough times Ethan had to face during the initial years after being diagnosed with autism, yet her son made her proud.

His disorders, viz Asperger’s and Autism, aren’t just labels, rather a reality of what makes Ethan today, the way he is.

And he wants to use it to help other’s by speaking out, this is amazing said Knapton to Duchess.
