Not according to the engagements list on either royal website.

Looking at the future diary's sections of the british monarchy and prince of wales sites, the prince of wales and his family are not listed very often on the monarchy's website but more on the prince of wales site but it isn't as detailed or up to date as the other site. For example, we know that Will and Kate are attending the St Andrews fundraiser on Nov 8, but it isn't listed on either site. So it almost seems for Will and Kate you have to wait for things to get closer to the event to see if them come.

I wonder if this is due to Will's flight schedule, I wonder how far in advance he knows when he on duty. They tend to group engagements together when he's off like they did a couple of weeks ago.

That's something that has bothered me, Skippyboo. The Cambridges official engagements aren't listed on the Official Monarchy Website. They are included in the Official Court Circular and their pictures on on the site but their Official engagements aren't listed in the Engagement List. I think William's SAR scheduel make things difficult too.

It seems that the Duchess of Cambridge and the Countess of Wessex have filled in quite nicely on a number of occasions when either the Prince of Wales, Duke of Cambridge or Earl of Wessex were otherwise engaged. Very refreshing to see the women of the family participating and representing the Queen.

I would like to see William and Kate attend the Festival of Remembrance at the RAH this year given that Charles and Camilla will be abroad. They'll have to start going some time and, since they'll likely be in London anyway for the Cenotaph the following day, it surely wouldn't put them out too much.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry today become Patrons of 100 Women in Hedge Funds’ Philanthropic Initiatives

Rebecca English@RE_DailyMail
It's the second joint patronage for William, Kate and Harry after their charitable foundation and will be a huge fundraiser for good causes

Very exciting. They will do a lot of good, I believe.

The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry is an amazing organization.
The foundation will raise hundreds of millions over its lifetime.

SCOTLAND Yard is investigating one of William and Kate’s bodyguards after a shot was fired inside a police car near the royal couple’s home in North Wales.

The incident occurred on October 24th.

The Special Protection Branch should be more on the ball than this.

I don't understand that either but there were reports that other guns of the same brand have discharged of their own as well. Maybe they were not properly cleaned, and I seem to recall these guns are very easy to discharge (that's whay a lot of criminals use them - but I know that only from crime fiction, so...) and need a lot of care to handle, but then they are extremely good guns.

BTW: I hope Catherine did not hear the shot as surely she would have been quite frightened, not knowing what goes on but realising that she is a first-class target.

It's not being comfirmed she was home at the time.

If the guns have a habit of going off by themselves, they need to get rid of those kind of guns.

Catherine was apparently 'near' the property when the gun went off.

Dang! When I first heard the story, I thought he was shooting at a photographer. But no such luck.

LOL! Thats funny Xenia. I love it but we couldnt get that lucky. I do think that it is odd the gun went off though. Do guns usually do that? That is kind of dangerous. Good thing Will and Cat were not there.
