The plaid ones might be a dark horse! They'd be perfect for trips to Scotland!

She likes to do things in "secret" does Catherine.

The visit was obviously appreciated by the staff and students at the RSN, that's the main thing.

If press is writing about this it's not a secret. And 'thank you' visit almost year after the wedding, a little too late don't you think. But seems that she hasn't nothing more to do.

Erm, the RSN will have been well paid for their services, they didn't embroider Kate's dress out of the goodness of their hearts. A supplementary thank you visit at a time that's convenient for everyone was a nice thing to do.

The RSN have received so much international press since being involved with Kate's dress I'll bet that they weren't at all hurt that she didn't come and see them as soon as she got back from her honeymoon.

Does she do them in secret, or does she do them privately? I'm going with "privately". If what she did was done in secret, it wouldn't be in the newspapers.

I don't see a problem if she chooses to visit a place privately. That's her choice, and if she's all right with it, who are we to judge? I think it's lovely of her to visit the workers who spent so much time on her dress. Shows that she's appreciative of what others do for her (and if it's done a year later, again, I'm sure there's a good reason for that, though I won't doubt a 'thank you' letter of some sort was sent after the wedding).

I found this on my twitter. A story about Catherine's recent charity visits will be in 'PEOPLE' magazine.

This sure seems to indicate that Kate is low-key and unassuming, and definitely isn't calling attention to herself while showing appreciation for the ladies' fine work. If the media picks up on it and reports the story, that's their call.

And if THEY refer to the visit as "secret" rather than "private" it seems that is THEIR responsibility.

It shouldn't be described as secret or private. This visit is mentioned in the official Court Circular.

I think it was very nice that she made a visit to the dressmakers. It was a nice gesture. They did work pretty hard on the dress and a little recognition is a good thing. Well done Catherine. :)

Plus I believe Catherine has longed for to see them at work doing embroideries. After all, it was not possible for her to visit them while they were working on her dress and it must have been interesting for her to see for herself.

I don't recall hearing of other Royal brides paying a personal visit to workers that contributed to their wedding dresses. The fact that she "chose" to do this shows that she very much wanted to extend her personal appreciation for their work. I understand that you dislike Catherine judging by your constant criticism of her, however I find this to be particularly petty.

I agree, but the press and some people don't like to let the truth get in the way of a good story.

Visiting the dressmakers/lacemakers was very gracious on Kate's part. I don't know that it should have been announced in the Court Circular, but it was. A nice use of her time nonetheless.

So Catherine's first event with the Queen is tomorrow! From what I've gathered it's going to be at 4am now as of right now I have no clue if that's EST or PST but I should be able to confirm that within the next hour or so. If it's 4am EST I'll be here to supply coverage.

The late Diana, Princess of Wales, visited the ladies who worked on her dress. I believe that she also brought them some wedding cake, but I'm not absolutely sure about that detail.
