I am too, except for gymnastics- the American gymnastics team is dynamite and I can't wait to see them perform.

I'm hoping the Duchess or another member of the family shows up at the gymnastic events. They're my favorite, besides the equestrian events.

She's scheduled to see gymnastics on August 4th or 5th. Can't remember which one.

I'm sorry, but having to go out in public and meet people IS work. In my opinion, it's even more taxing than sitting in an office, handling papers, because in Catherine's case, she has to interact, sometimes for hours on end, and that takes a lot out of you. Being around people is exhausting, because you have no time to take a mental break. If you're in a bad mood, or don't want to be there, you can't just walk around with a sulky facial expression, because it's unprofessional. Imagine, you're going through something difficult in your personal life, you have to leave that at the door, and put on a happy face. Since Catherine has yet to give me an impression of not enjoying her public engagements, as well as meeting new people, I'd say she's putting in her time and then some. It's quite obvious you don't like this person, so why bother coming on her threads and spewing such nastiness?

Same here. Catherine is a human being, like the rest of us, so why not allow her to indulge, and receive 'nice' and 'expensive' things, when we give ourselves plenty of reasons to do the same?

The Duchess of Cambridge has a non Olympic Event this evening, apparently it is cocktail dress attire not evening gown.

Have you ever had to meet and greet people? I've had to do it as part of my last senior management position. And I hated it. Walking into a room and being polite and chatting for hours to people I didn't know, worried about saying something I shouldn't or that could be misconstrued; not eating or drinking in case of spillages(!) trying to remember names and organisations and at the end feeling wrung out like a limp rag.

It's work - it really is.

I do it sometimes as part of my husband's work. It does take mental and emotional effort--and I'm not in a position where I have to look perfect for the media! Sometimes I've had to walk into a room of people I don't know, shake hands, and chat a bit, knowing that whatever I said or did would reflect on my husband and his work. Plus I live in a fishbowl. Plus I'm an introvert. It's far from easy.

No athletes.

This is a really senior event for Catherine to do on her own - its part of the GREAT campaign with the PM present. Good for her.

My thought as well, cepe, certainly this event is a step up in terms of importance for Kate on her own. There must be confidence in her personally for her to be able to go to this incredibly high-profile event solo.
