I'm sure Kate handled it with tact and diplomacy.
Meanwhile, you can read about the incident with the Duchess of Cornwall here.

Thank you! Slightly OT but as much as I'd LOVE to do a stint at a British University I think my parents would kill me especially after all the money we've spent already with the current one I'm attending. But the plan is fingers crossed in a few years to move to London with a journalism degree and try to get a job in the field of royal correspondence.

Ok so vids here: Home - ITNSource News

Thank you so much for the photos Admirer. Little Lola is so cute and I see her mummy was well prepared for the day as she appears to have brought along the potty just in case!

It seems that Kate's visit yesterday was a great success. She seems amazingly comfortable and confident considering she's only been in the role for 18 months. She looks like she enjoys meeting people which likely makes it easier for her.

The pictures of her hugging the little boy were so sweet. As the article said, if you don't ask, you don't get. Well done him for having the courage to ask for a hug.

One of Catherine's criticisms from her detractors is that she is stiff and wooden and 'fake' but children recognise fake from a mile away and boys and girls of all ages are 'in love' with her and enthralled by HRH. Articles about William and Catherine always make me smile!!!

This is very true. Children will 'reveal' the true person underneath by either wanting to be around him/her, or hiding behind a parent/ignoring the person completely. They're the best judges of character and 'psychologists' .

Catherine visited yesterday with a group of teen moms - a potential quagmire of issues for some people. She seemed to handle the visit well and focused on the young women and their lives rather than the politics of any related issues. It struck me as I read the report below that Kate showed some real skill here.

This is a great cause to support. Again, Catherine is not afraid to get her hands dirty and wor with organizations that are not glamourous.

This charity was part of the group that received donations from the Royal Wedding last year.
