@RoyalKateDebate My understanding is it's all got pushed back because of pregnancy. I think Feb at earliest

Journalist response to question on when there would be news of Catherine's patronages (22nd Jan)

Just because there hasn't been any *public* stuff going between Kate and those two organizations, doesn't mean she's not doing anything behind the scenes.

I would also think doing anything publicly w/Action on Addiction would need to be carefully handled to ensure whomever meets Kate is either been a Recovering Alcoholic or Recovering Drug Addict for several years or someone who while not sober for long, is at least confident enough to be able to handle the exposure they would get by meeting HRH. It doesn't take a great leap to imagine the Media would just love to jump on someone who ended up going off the wagon after meeting Kate and that in turn wouldn't be a great thing for AoA.

JMO and also assuming, of her current patronages AoA is going to be the one we only see her Publicly doing an Engagement for the least among her Patronages and for the reasons up above. However, that doesn't mean she's not doing a lot behind the scenes.

Once again...JMO.

Of course, and I didn't mean to imply otherwise- I was just very impressed with her opening a dialogue between EACH and Hospice Malaysia and I'm interested to see if she undertakes similar partnerships for some of her other patronages in the future.

She's only done one public visit for Action on Addiction, and some of it could certainly be logistics, but the major benefit of her patronage is to shine a light on addiction issues and bring in funding for them. That's got to involve more public work than private :)

I'm sure it's on her agenda for the future, I'm just looking forward to seeing it.

I hope she do go on and succeed The Duke of Kent as club President at some point.

If that's Kate where are the protection officers? Or do they wait outside? I never see pics of any around her when she's out and about alone when she's not working...perhaps they just never make it into the shots...

i guess they are not in the pictures because keep a reasonable distance with her and try to mimetise as much as possible with the rest of the world...

it's interesting because neither the bartenders or the girl next to her seem (from the picture at least) recognise her.

I have seen pics of when Harry and William were going out and about, you'd almost always see their protection officers in pics but maybe that is because of the higher level of craziness that comes with the all those photograhpers.

I noticed that too that no one around 'her' (if it's Kate) was looking at her but then again I suppose there are people who just would not recognize her, like the man in the store in Wales.

They probably looked after Lupo who is not allowed into a food store, so had to stay outside. Just imagine someone stole The Royal Pet....

Looks like Kate was in Gap today!!


Apparently Kate was out and about yesterday in South Kensington (where I live- I still can't believe I missed a chance to see her! I'm not lucky).
She went to Gap store, Starbucks and Pret A Manger where she bought a sandwich and a croissant.

I saw the picture yesterday on facebook and instagram but I was not sure about posting it in the thread as I didn't ask the owner for permission and didn't find a way to contact her.

Thanks for sharing!

The public seem to be just as intrusive as the paparazzi they complain about. We have turned into a nation of paps.

Anyone with a cell phone can snap a picture in the twinkling of an eye these days. I'm thinking this picture of Kate was taken just that way, because of it's blurriness.

Probably not much if the population in London, models an all.

To be perfectly honest is Catherine walked in front of me in a shop I would ask for a picture with her. Although I wouldn't post it on twitter.

Very true and it's scary, IMO.

And she would refuse it as she always does.
