It's simply not possible to try and isolate Kate's financial impact on EACH or Action on Addiction etc. Governance of charitable organisations is pretty good in the UK. If a charity was losing money as a result of having a royal patron, the relationship would end, it's as simple as that. Were there not an overall benefit to charities in having royal patrons, then the demand for royal patronage would not be so high.

Oh, and by the way, it's not just English taxpayers who pay for the RF. Us Northern Irish, as well as the Scots and the Welsh also fund the activities of the RF and are happy to do so.
It's actually vice versa. The RF at one point in history gave up their personal estate which had provided their private income from which they built their palaces, supported their households, gave grands etc. in exchange for a funding through parliamental control. But - they never got as much back as the "Crown Estate" brought in revenues. So instead of building new Royal residences or buying new jewels, parintings etc. , the income from the "Crown Estate" has been used to support "Chequers" and other governmental residences and buying art for the offices of the government. (Plus of course a lot on the revenue is used to support British citizens who are not taxpayers).

Which is okay, of course, but I wish this never-ending lament about "the taxpayer pays for the RF" would stop when it is in fact the other way round. In other countries, when the monarchy ended, the former reigning families could keep their "Crown estate", only the Royal palaces who were bought with the official apanage became public property....

I have to say, Catherine is looking quite lovely and very healthy. Im so happy for her. Im glad she was able to be at the races with everyone and that she is now enjoying her pregnancy. Now it is a count down and a time to see her blossom even more. Cant wait till the big day.

Lake district is an amazing place. Didn't she take her puppy when she want to a scouts event in the past? I wonder if she would do it this time round as well. Looking forward to this visit.

Catherine and children is always a great combination. I'm really excited about this particular event.

She must love the Lake District.
She used to spend her summer holidays there when she was a kid.

My parents went to the Lake District when they were on their three-week vacation of England and Wales in late July and early August 1990; they spent my mom's 38th birthday there. My mom says it's like our cottage country (we live in Southern Ontario).

Nothing on twitter. It's supposed that Catherine is stepping in for The Queen but it hasn't been widely reported.
