Kate is a quiet force indeed while using her influence to effect positive changes, even as a volunteer.

Are kids joining because Kate has brought attention to Scouts, or are kids joining hoping to meet Kate?

I don't mean to be cynical, just a thought that popped in my head.

I'm sure there are some who joined for either reason. Would be curious to know the numbers, though I doubt anyone will ever know.

I had the same thought. Material may have been published that shows Catherine promoting the scouts, but I haven't seen any. Nor have we seen her doing any engagements for her patronage. I'm leaning towards the latter.

In order to give youngsters some credit, I would hope that they are joining the scouts because because the organisation has been highlighted recently (possibly in part by Catherine's involvment).

But Scouting is not one of her patronages, so I doubt she would be doing engagements on their behalf. Her participation with the scouts is as a volunteer, so very few pictures, if any.

In an article posted above it says she will do an official engagement for the Scouts this year. Not sure if this true, though.

Not Patron, yet. But the BBC article says she has been working with the Scouts since it was announced earlier this year and that she will be doing engagements with William as they both have "strong links".

Snap! Photo charity asks Kate to take Diana's role as patron
Quote:
The Duchess of Cambridge has been approached to become patron of a charity that was one of the favourites of Diana, Princess of Wales. Supporters of the Positive View Foundation, which works with disadvantaged young people, have been courting the Duchess in the hope that she will become an ambassador.

It is rather inappropriate for Ms.Mitchell to over-mention names of her royal and celebrity clients in order to flog her skincare range.

This was very lovely to read. It's great to see that Catherine finds time to really work with the organizations she chose to support/volunteer with. The letter made the children feel very special, just like their cards have done for Catherine.

Alright, I like Kate as much as the next person, but I am getting tired of these specials on her and/or William that have nothing new to talk about and are repeating the same things we heard in November 2010, leading up to April 2011, and ending 2011.

I kind of agree with you on this but I always seem to learn at least one new thing in each program. I know a lot of channels are repeating specials from last year because of their anniversary, but this one actually sounds like it will include different info and possibly from hopefully reliable first hand sources. We won't know unless we actually watch it I guess. Although you could wait until someone here has watched it and then ask them if its worth watching.

I'm glad she and Charles seem to get along so well. It's great that they've found in each other shared interests which other family members don't share.

I'm glad also that Kate seems to enjoy her public engagements. The thing about focusing on one person when she gets out of the car is a good tip, and you can actually see her doing it sometimes.

I'm glad that Catherine has formed strong bonds with the Queen and the Prince of Wales. I think common interests are a key to breaking the ice, and getting to know one another in any relationship, and Catherine's relationship with her in-laws is no different. It's lovely that the Duchess keeps Charles company and enjoys going to the opera and other events that deal with art and culture.

It was also delightful to read that Catherine is enjoying her public engagements. It's very visible in pictures and videos, and getting a written confirmation is just an icing on the cake sometimes. I think her ease comes from the fact that she ignores the media and 'forgets that they're there'. That's a great tactic; she can be herself and not worry so much about how she'll come off in the press later on that day, or the next morning. I've done my share of public speaking/stage performing/teaching, and yes, focusing on something or someone can be a great help. I cannot always focus (my eyes won't allow it), but I pick something in the room to direct my eyes to, if I'm in need of calming down.

I agree entirely, Daria. It was actually something I noticed on the BBC News tonight when they were reporting on Will and Kate's visit to the Scott/Amundsen campaign. As soon as Kate got out of the car the flashlights were blinding, and they didn't ease off, it just kept going until she went inside. The news anchor actually had to warn us before the segment so those who have problems with flashing lights could look away.

I just thought, how intimidating it must be to walk out in front of that. Just knowing that everyone's staring at you, judging you, looking for mistakes etc. Obviously she's getting used to it, but it would petrify me. I suppose it's like actresses on the Oscar red carpet.
