Kate Middleton just doled out some princess-approved and very practical life advice to a teenage girl in London. According to People, she and Prince William visited a London school as part of their work for Heads Together and listened as several students made presentations.

After making a speech in front of the royals (and being understandably nervous), 15-year-old Hannah got a chance to talk to Middleton one-on-one. “The princess said to me that I should always keep performing and I should never give up on my dreams,” Hannah told People. “That is going to stay with me for the rest of my life.”

In addition to giving out life-altering advice, the Duke and Duchess helped start an important conversation about mental health at the school. “I think the fact that they came here is going to help a lot of people be able to speak up about how they’re feeling,” Hannah said of their visit.

Another student at the event, Klaudia, 12, said she thinks the royals’ work with this cause will help “a lot of people open their eyes to the fact that if you do feel worried and scared it’s not unusual, and it’s okay to talk about.”

This is what working princess magic in the real world looks like.
