for some reason I expect her to bring kids from one of her charities with her to the gymnastics and/or the synchronized swimming- i havent heard anything - just my own supposition.

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.

I was impressed with how the PM obviously was delighted she was at the event - and that he saw her as a plus for the event.
More than just a nice looking woman in a great dress, I think she has shown herself to be an asset socially in these events.
Kate seems a natural and not a schemer; she is someone who seems able to listen to others and maintain sparkling conversation. Good for her!

Wow she looked amazing. I like the fact that she put her hair up, she should do it more often. She looked elegant and graceful and I wouldnt mind seeing her look like this more often. Good job Catherine. Hey and whats up with those earrings? Wow, nice. A gift?

It's work - it really is.
Absolutely. I've been working in the education industry in some capacity for over fifteen years, and it's pretty similar. You have to be able to carry on a conversation, and if you're in the classroom, captivate the attention of your students. If you're an introvert like myself, it takes a great deal of effort (and it's exhausting for those who are social butterflies). Sometimes kids don't respond to plain lecture, so you have to really get creative, and start doing things that are out of your comfort zone (for me it's being upbeat, because I'm not a perky type at all). At the end of the day, you're drained. So yes, being amongst our fellow humans is a tough job, and Catherine does it pretty darn well. You can never say she looks as if she doesn't want to be there, because she's always smiling and looking engaged.

Thank you for the article. Catherine certainly knows how to schmooze. I'd imagine she's gaining more and more confidence with each event. She strikes me as someone who enjoys being with people.
