If there is an issue health wise, carrying a child to term is the only job of the mother for the moment. And for any mother to be, it's certainly her main priority.

There's also nothing wrong with deciding that one's only job is to raise and nurture the child during its formative years. I did it for quite a while.

There's difference between a woman choosing this as her goal from saying that this is her only viable purpose. I don't think that anyone is suggesting "well, she's a woman and the wife of the heir, so all she's good for is bearing children."

Thank heavens we have left the ages where a lack of knowledge about female biology meant we measured a woman's worth solely by her ability to brood. Some people on this forum sound like they are wearing What Would Henry VIII Do? bracelets.

Guys, it is not necessary to talk about Catherine's trip in two separate threads especially since she didn't travel by herself. As a result, posts discussing the the Cambridge vacation have been moved to http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...-33680-62.html. Please note that I requested this in the past, but I guess I was just talking to myself. Going forward, all posts will just be deleted instead of moved. That's where I am at this point.

In addition, any and all discussion regarding Catherine royal duties should be posted in
http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...-32382-12.html.

Let's stay on topic...Catherine's actual Current Events.

How devastating. It's lovely that Catherine took the time to send a condolence letter to the family, and took time to chat to the little boy when she visited the hospice a year ago. I'm sure the family is very touched by the kind gesture.

This news is at least 7 months old.
Little boy sadly passed away in May 2012. Not really sure what DM's agenda is but it's nice to know that Kate sent a letter of condolences to the parents.

How absolutely heartbreaking for the family. It's very touching that Kate sent them a condolence letter.

Had no idea. Judging by the pic Catherine met the little boy back in March when she made a visit on behalf of her charity EACH

7months? The time it takes for such matters to reach the Coroner's Court maybe?

The story is linked to a recent report on poorly performing hospitals. Colchester is one of them. The story is about how the boy died as a resault of poor care, in the parents opinion. Catherine's link to this is tenuous to say the least.

Like others, I'm looking forward to seeing Catherine out and about on official duties. She does her job very well, and I'm sure that people in the region are excited to have a chance of meeting their future queen in the flesh.

Bit of a change of scenery for Kate to say the least - Mustique to Grimsby!

Interesting that Kate is visiting Prince's Trust projects in Lincolnshire. Maybe she'll be the one to take it on when Charles becomes King?

I think it would be good for her to get involved with The Prince's Trust.
