This is not an attack on them, its a comment on a discussion, which is what I thought forums were for.
I think it might be a bit presumptuous for us to assume that there isn't a plan of what the Cambridge's will do. I am sure the plan is well thought through. William's leaving the armed forces was not a decision taken on a whim, and I am sure a plan was developed that covers, IMO the following:

a) focussing on further developing the charitable interests of the couple, and expanding the scope of their involvement with their existing charities and taking on new ones;

b) considering the workings of the Prince's Trust, and seeing how William and Catherine may want to involve themselves with it in the medium term;

c) getting a more in-depth understanding of the matters relating to the Duchy of Cornwall; and

d) gradually increasing the scope of their public duties in support of HM, though I suspect in the first instance their increased public roles would be related to the organisations they are associated with.

A lot of this work is behind the scenes, and as a result, it is quite likely that William will not be seen much in public, irrespective of how much work he may be engaged in.

As far as Catherine is concerned, she has a 3 month old child. Most UK employers allow maternity leave of up to a year, and increasingly, I see those that can afford to, take it. Catherine has already carried out some engagements and I suspect, in time, will increase her public activities.

What makes you think there is a lack of co-ordination between the royal offices? Have there been any conflicting messages delivered?

I am not sure that achieves very much other than exposing them to criticism for when they do not attend a Festival of Remembrance or State Banquet in the future.

They do not need to do anything to prove they are capable of being King and Queen. The role, when they succeed, and I suspect they are 15-20 years away from it, just requires them to continue to follow what HM and Charles will have dutifully done in their times.

Off-topic, but most children in the UK usually go trick or treating nowadays, and some have Halloween themed sleepovers and parties (or at least in my area, I'm not sure about the rest of the country but I would imagine it's the same). I used to have them when I was younger.

There are now 5-6 engagements for William and 2 for Catherine in the 1st 2 weeks of November. That seems like a plan to me.

This is in addition, of course, to the behind scene work that we will not see or be told about.

Oh a little green frog would be perfect!! And I think that Camilla gave away all the sweets today to the horses! Wouldn't go over to their house, maybe great granny's house, bound to be some really great goodies over there. That is if the corgis didn't get to the first!

Looking forward to this. You can never have too much Cambridge magic.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge surprised hundreds of commuters today as they joined poppy sellers at a London Tube station. The royal couple travelled on a 1960s Routemaster bus to High Street Kensington station where they met military personnel and volunteers supporting London Poppy Day. William and Kate were swamped by members of the public taking photographs as they walked along the high street to the station's entrance hall-
