I would have placed Becca as at least 5 years older than Kate, but she's actually slightly younger. She seems exactly the kind of person Kate should have around her though. I hope it works out for all involved.

Yes, it's good to see Kate building up her support group with people she and William trust. As her duties increase, she's going to certainly need those extra set of hands on walkabouts. And is it just me, or is it a deliberate selection that Becca and the PPO are brunettes or just a coincidence?

Thank you for the article. This woman seems to know very well what she's doing, and is able to provide support for Catherine.

Wow. Interesting article about Rebecca. She seems to have a lot of responsibility considering she helps not only Catherine but William and Harry as well. I thought the boys had their own personal assistants. So how did this woman get that job? Has she been around the family for a while?

Snap . I posted the wrong link. Holy cow....I'm mortified. Here's the link I meant to post. I will delete the one from earlier. Thank you for that, by the way. I think I'm slowly but surely losing my mind .

I see that several of the students at De Montfort University, who are studying Footwear Design (who knew you could do a degree in footwear design) have designed a shoe for Catherine and she's going to pick the winner on her visit with the Queen. The winning shoe will be made and presented to Kate at a later date. It's a really good idea on the university's part, one of these students will be able to put on their resume that their first commission was the Duchess of Cambridge. Not bad!

I don't know if anyone saw last night's Antiques Roadshow on BBC1. It was set in Dundee I think and a woman brought along a programme from the charity fashion show that Kate took part in while at St Andrews, wearing the famous 'see through' dress. One of the experts valued it at £500 which amazed me. Kate hadn't signed it or anything like that, it just had her name in it. Bonkers.

That is crazy that an unsigned program would cost that much. It just goes to show you that anything related to Kate seems to have added value. Now if she was the owner of that dress and brought it in to be valued, that's a whole different story!

It certainly would have been interesting to see the dress, Baroness. Although valuation wise we have a pretty good idea - as you'll remember the see through dress sold at auction last March for a completely baffling £78,000! I suppose it's true what they say - an item's worth what some idiot's willing to pay for it.

Watch how that price has most likely now escalated, given a future Queen of England has worn it in her "racy" college days and her current popularity. As I'm writing this, I'm also watching the U.S. version of Antiques Roadshow.

And here's a link to some of the sketches in the shoe contest. I'd need a cane to help walk on those stilts; not my cup of tea at all.

I caught an article earlier that showed some of the designs up for judging and I'll tell you, I'm so glad I'm not in Kate's shoes. (pun intended). There's not one among them I really like or would wear.

I quite like the blue ones with the lace effect.

I'd be unable to wear any of them, I'm afraid flats are my best friends. I just can't seem to wear heels, although I can appreciate them on an aesthetic level.

Wowie...those shoes are not quite my cup of tea either. A little too 'out there' in my book. Catherine will have to be diplomatic (I wonder if she'll ever have to actually appear in public in what she chooses, especially if none are really to her taste). I don't think I'd be able to stand in heels that are that high (flats are my best friends too), Kudos to those who are able to wear and walk in them.

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.
