I thought Catherine was trying to stop the very cute little one interrupting the girl in the wheelchair that she was talking to. Little cute one was showing off, lets be honest!

Of course they didn't. Consider the source and put on Ignore. I only wish one of the features of the upgrade to the App, had been that whenever someone on your Ignore list was quoted by someone else, that the quoted portion was also blacked out.

Catherine handled the situation perfectly. It was obvious that little one had really taken a shine to HRH, wasn't letting her go w/out one more hug and ended up stealing the show and many hearts around the World too. I also thought how she tried to get the lad in the wheelchair beside her to take part in the Music Therapy session was brilliant on Catherine's part. She's a stranger and w/all the Media around, was more just a bit scared of it all, but she tried to reach him and get him to take part in the Session by using something he does know, the Frog Puppet. As was shown later on, he had started to try and sing along.

For anyone watching that and then saying Catherine was distant and/or didn't handle things w/compassion and also humour...I may be Legally Blind, but I far prefer my blindness to the type where someone would "see" anything other than a young woman acting compassionately to lighten the day of those children, families and staff members. I do not understand that mindset, but I also find it beyond sad.

I just watched the video. I thought in the beginning she was nervous, however, buy the end of the video she was relaxed, happy and confident with her self. The little girl was so cute. Kate never once tried to push her away or make a face at the touching and hugging.

I think she did a great job and she is learning well. She did a good job.

You took the words out if my mouth! I've yet to see this woman do any sort of engagement without any sincerity. That comes across very strongly when she's interacting with children. Her heart is in it, and she does what she can to make the children feel at ease. The children responded. What could be more natural? Some people who come on here like to criticize beyond the amount necessary, and in this case the amount was absolute zero.

He's 5 months old now - so I am putting this here. Per the Mirror, Kate shopped for George. It could also be for any of her friends with babies, but the mirror did not think of that. Cute choices in either case.

I had not heard about the biking last year - had anyone else? (see the People link) Is it tab hogwash?

You would think if it was true someone would have taken a picture. It seemed very strange if they left William and Kate at home and went on a pub crawl by bike in December.
