Well, I personally would like to see her in an updo more often and wearing some more jewels at the appropriate events, and while I give my opinion on the fashion threads I don't make a fuss about it if she doesn't. And I certainly don't expect streaming live video of All Catherine, All The Time! That would be exceedingly boring, and I couldn't wear my own tiaras and jewels if I never left the house while watching her brush her teeth. And as far as a broadcast birth, I'd only want to watch it if it's a tiara occasion for Catherine. After all, the future heir to the throne could be a girl so maybe it's not OTT after all!

Personally I think she's doing exactly what she should be doing. She's not exactly the type to send out royal summons and have merchandisers cart their wares over to the royal residence where she muses through them and decides and orders. For all we know, she could be shopping for comfortable clothing to wear on upcoming future engagements while she's out visiting her OB/GYN. She is going to need a maternity wardrobe between now and July methinks.

Its been announced she's back working with her advisors/charities and most likely there will be upcoming announcements of future engagements. She's not going to appear in a potato sack and most likely her before pregnancy clothes aren't too comfortable for her to wear now.

I'll start complaining if and when the Firm does.

Some people have it in for Catherine and nothing she does will ever be good enough. Some others seem to have an impaired memory and are unable to learn and absorb what others say about HG. When they make dumb comments, it reflects badly on themselves. Thank goodness for the ignore button.

Though I didn't suffer from HG, I had morning sickness till about the stage Catherine is at and it would wane and wane but show up unexpectedly. Thankfully, she seems well enough to be resuming normal activites.
Performing a "high profile" job in the public eye is a lot different than the rest of us who can get by, slumping at our desks sometimes:)

Yes, it's not like she can dash out of a formal reception/ giving an official speech to the ladies' room, throw her heart up, then carry on with a royal walkabout. Not good for her or the baby. Ymmv.

If we expect to see Kate at public engagements, she needs to shop!
Her old clothes aren't going to fit her quite right anymore.
It's a shame that she hasn't done any public engagements recently. I refuse to call the portrait unveiling a public engagement. But I guess she was taking precaution since she still wasn't feeling very well.
Now that she is holidaying in Mustique, she ought to do public engagements or she is a thorough waste of tax payers money (that's where the security are paid from)!

Members of the royal family usually start up their official engagements in Feb. The portrait unveiling was a private engagement. The Queen will now start up her official engagements this month around Sandringham before returning to London. Prince Harry will kick off his official engagements too. February is the time you really start seeing the royals again.

I'm sure she realises this, and has done her clothes shopping online or when she's been out in London.

Princess B, as you're from India I guess you are not a British taxpayer. So why are you saying this when it is not your money? Catherine for you and me and the most of us is just a gift of life. We are interested in her, we want to see her and not vice versa.

And those in the Uk: have you ever asked yourself that it is your and other Catherine follower's interest in her that makes her a target for people who want to hurt the British society? If people in their majority didn't want the monarchy, there wouldn't be one anymore. Then this family would not longer represent the state and society of the Uk for which they are targeted by people who are against said system. And if they were still targeted, as private citizens and this threat would become known to the police, they still would receive protection. All that without having to do anything for society in return.

So, please, leave her be with the argument of "taxpayer's money" especially as she at the moment is doing her most important job as an "employee of the UK" - she is carrying a future Head of State. It is her job now to do anything that helps and to omit anything that may threaten this unborn child. She is not payed by anyone for doing this but the state who wants her unborn child as a future Head of State at least pays for her protection.

Sorry, that's the way it is. And if she did nothing but walk and play with her dog and shop and holiday: as long as she delivers a healthy child she has done her duty. And after she is out of her childbearing days we might talk again....

She is not doing her most important job, we're not in the 18th Century, she's just carrying a child. Most women, most Princesses manage that and carrying out engagements or everyday life. Yes she's been ill but she's managed an 8 hour plus flight to Mustique so she seems to have been fine for a while.

If Catherine's going to wrap herself in bubble wrap so as not to come into contact with anything that can harm the child, then she'll have to do it until the child is 18.

Well said, Lumutqueen.

It's not the first time I read in this forum that she's doing the only job she's required to do: carrying the heir. I was starting to doubt in which century we live in, so thanks for telling me I'm not the only one here living in the 21st century

What century we live in? The one where we body shame women, the one where we say women are lying about their health (Clinton, Kate) even when they are hospitalize. The one that think we can dictate what women can where or they will get call a Madonna or a whore.

That has exactly what to do with Catherine carrying a child? And who's the "we" in this?

If there is an issue health wise, carrying a child to term is the only job of the mother for the moment. And for any mother to be, it's certainly her main priority.

There's also nothing wrong with deciding that one's only job is to raise and nurture the child during its formative years. I did it for quite a while.

There's difference between a woman choosing this as her goal from saying that this is her only viable purpose. I don't think that anyone is suggesting "well, she's a woman and the wife of the heir, so all she's good for is bearing children."
