I agree wholeheartedly.

These photos of her shopping show her looking somewhat tired. Doesnt look like she has been getting enough sleep, you think? Other than that she is looking pretty good. She is back down to her slender self. :)

Ask any mom with a newborn if they're getting sleep and 10-1 the answer will be "What's sleep?"

Richard Palmer is saying that Catherine's diary will start filling up even more within the new year.

I'm just wondering how many engagements the future Queens Consort Alexandra, Mary and Elizabeth undertook, when they were mothers of young babies? and concerned that Catherine is undertaking too much at this stage...

Those ladies had a house full of servants and handed the baby over to the nannies (plural). And it was either the equivalent of formula or a wet-nurse.

I agree. It was a totally different way of raising children back then. The upbringing of the children was left to nannies and governesses and the old adage "children should be seen and not heard" rang true. This in no way means that the parents weren't involved in their lives or that they weren't well loved and cuddled but the parents of the high born royals and aristocracy had full engagement books filled with duties and social obligations.

Harry is not qualified to teach someone to fly.

but hey, the story is in a Comic which is where one finds jokes and made up stories.

Its all part of being a parent. We've always known that George is quite a vocal little one and they both probably have their own special ways of dealing with it when it happens. It seems mostly that when one parent is out, the other one is staying home with the baby with each parent loving it and forming their own special relationship with George. I like that. I can imagine that with George, Mom is the soft cuddle up one and Daddy is the one that's fun and plays tickle games and makes funny faces

I'm sorry, but in the case of William and Kate I think this idea is rubbish. They are not ordinary parents. There's no need whatsoever for them to be hands on parents all the time, and if they are insisting on doing it, which I doubt because I believe they have more help than they admit to, they are fools. Thanks primarily to the fact that his parents divorced and Diana got a huge settlement and then promptly died, William is an extremely wealthy man and they could, and should, have engaged staff to look after their apparently difficult child when duty calls them both to other activities. Had a nanny been engaged at the beginning a close relationship would have been established with that nanny which would have allowed William and Kate to escape the screaming more often.

she's part time. I assume she helps out when she can, hence the joint engagements.

really? you are criticizing them for being too hands on and depriving a nanny of establishing a relationship with their child?

Yes they have the resources to have around the clock nannies, but they have made a conscious choice to be the primary caregivers in their child's life for as long as reasonable. George will have nannies in his life, but I applaud the effort W&K are making in these early months to be the 'first responders'.

Harry's comments smack more of envy than anything else
