Love the video from CNN! Thanks ghost night554. CBS news from Boston had a similar video about the Duchess during their dinner newscast.

Very lovely photos and videos. The Duchess is so very gentle in her behaviour. I can see why Prince Charles calls her his darling daugter in law. And she deserves extra recognition for playing in high heels. That reminds me of when one of our very colorful female politicians pointed out that Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it in high heels while dancing backwards.

She really did seem to acquit herself well here. To be honest, I think going back to your primary school is a bit of a horror story for a lot of adults but she seemed to have enjoyed her school and managed to convey a really positive message to the young pupils.

One note of concern though, it seems she is starting to treat seat belts as an optional accessory rather than a legal requirement which is not a good example at all.

I think the comment about seatbelt is a tad harsh and an exaggeration of the facts. She is still on private land, and turning to wave goodbye. This does not mean that she is treating them an an optional accessory or does so on the highway. If she did so on the highway you would be absolutely correct. But given the fact that a contributory factor in the death of Diana was not wearing a seat belt, I think that this is unlikely.

Not harsh, just common sense. When I get into the car the first thing I do is fasten my seatbelt. Sit, click! It is totally automatic! I do not wait until I have reached the bottom of the drive at the roadside to do so. The fact that she did not "make it click" made me question her "habit".

The point at issue was that:

a. She is a role model and that was what her visit was about, and

b. She was visiting a large number of children and seeing her "belt up" would have been a good thing.

Impossible to determine a 'habit' from a couple of cropped photos. No reason whatsoever to think Catherine doesn't wear a seatbelt at all times while the vehicle is moving.

I thought this was being discussed in another thread - "general information about the Duchess of Cambridge."

As expected, Catherine has cancelled her next three engagements due to today's announcement.

Does this mean the Winter Whites Gala is a wash for Catherine?

I would imagine so, since it's this coming Saturday, if I'm not mistaken. Catherine needs her rest, and from now on, it's not about her, but about the baby. So, if the doctors require her to rest, then she should follow their orders and take it easy. I'd imagine that everyone would want her to be healthy, and comfortable during her pregnancy, and beyond. However, I do think we'll see her doing limited engagements after she has recovered fully, and the doctors give her a clean bill of health to continue working.

Yes, she cancelled on the Winter Whites Gala. She also won't be attending the Military Tournament. She hasn't cancelled her engagement on the 12th (the Hobbit Premiere), so she may attend.

I wouldn't hold my breadth waiting for Catherine to do any engagements. The type of problem she is having can last through the entire pregnancy. It did for me with all 4 of mine. Not fun.

good to hear shes so determined!

Victoria Arbiter ‏@victoriaarbiter
The Duchess of Cambridge will be presenting two awards at tonight's BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards. #royal
Paul Harrison ‏@SkyNewsRoyal
#royal #Kate St James' "The Duchess will attend the event in response to a long standing invitation from the BBC."
Paul Harrison ‏@SkyNewsRoyal #royal #Kate is an Olympic Ambassador so she would have wanted to be there at #SPOTY esp after cancelling 3 engagements in past wk

Robert Jobson ‏@theroyaleditor
Kate will be alone at the BBC Sports Personality Awards engagement - William is "searching & rescuing ."
Rebecca English ‏@RE_DailyMail Sources tell me the Duchess doesn't feel well enough to carry out a lengthy engagement but was determined to pay tribute to our sportsmen

Rebecca English ‏@RE_DailyMail
She will therefore attend the awards for around 45 minutes...Kate was, of course, a Team GB a
Peter Hunt ‏@BBCPeterHunt Kate is not well enough to attend the whole 4 hour long event. She will arrive in time for the presentations.


I will be here for this seeing as I'm now officially school free
