Its not the only thing that matters, but it is the thing that winds everyone up and gets them going.
The tabloids are not the PR wing of the BRF, their only concern is page hits.
As long as articles about Catherine's fashion in the DM receive 500 comments in the space of a couple of hours, it will continue but I agree about the current events thread and I'm guilty of posting fashion/style comments in the wrong thread

No video of her speech yet? Odd as it's been hours now since the visit.

ITA w/Kate about the book on Birds of North America. Those illustrations are gorgeous!!

I really like the new hairstyle and that particular type of green really suits her I think. Now I just wish I could see video of Kate's speech to see how she's coming along w/her Public Speaking.

Am I the only person who thinks that there might be significance in Kate wearing the green dress to this engagement? She's at the Natural History Museum, and green is overwhelmingly the colour of nature.

I'm a bit surprised about the lack of videos as well. Usually something like this gets enough coverage. Maybe in the morning, but then again, there will be another series of events that will involve this couple to concentrate on. Hopefully we'll get something at some point. I enjoy listening to Catherine speak. She's doing pretty well for someone who hasn't done any major public speaking until in the beginning of the year.

From what I've read about tonight's event, Catherine was not expected to speak - Lord Attenborough was. Because he couldn't attend, Catherine was asked to say a few words in his place.

If the media had expected her to speak then I think a video would be available but unless the museum have organised something I would be surprised if there was one.

I'm jealous that she gets a personal tour. I understand why, just green (pun intended) with envy.

Back to the Eighties! Kate references retro Diana with new fringe and retro dress
Quote:
She may have been wearing an old dress, but the Duchess of Cambridge turned heads with a new haircut at the opening of the Natural History Museum’s Treasure exhibition in London last night. Kate's new look appears to have been inspired by the late Seventies and early Eighties, with a heavy parted fringe reminiscent of Farah Fawcett. But it was the combination of the new haircut and the retro silk green dress that brought to mind a more significant likeness: that of her husband's late mother, Princess Diana.

Because Diana was of course the only person who wore bangs and green dresses in the 80s...

Is anyone else tired of seeing Kate holding her hands? I wish she would carry a clutch so she doesn't have to hold her hands so much. I swear she got out of the car holding her hands.

It's not always easy to figure out what to do with your hands.

If you notice an number of royals do this hands held front or hands held in back thing (Phillip, Harry, Charles, etc.) I read once that this helps alleviate stress on the back while they do all that standing about on visits. It also makes them appear calm and makes for tidy pictures.

I know, which is why I suggested she carry a clutch.

This is crazy and grasping for something that is nothing. Are they going to say Kate is paying homage to her late mother-in-law when she gets pregnant? You know, because Diana was pregnant too.

The 2nd link in Duke-of-Earl's post at #1666 contains a video.
The "speech", to call it that, is 6 to 7 seconds long.
