I love it too.
And the more I think about it- the foster event does seem more adult oriented where the AR event more child. So I'm looking forward more to the AR event. I love to see the Duchess more with kids than adults .

I agree. I have a hunch that this is a pre-visit in a plan to be patron of this foster charity. Like she did with the sailing one.

Rose, and hernameispekka, You have voiced my thoughts here. This engagement is hitting close to home for many personal reasons, and I can't even begin to express how happy I am that Catherine is highlighting this cause.

Now these are people who deserve to be recognized. I'd like to see her take on foster care as a patronage.

Me too. Most of her patronages so far (at least those dealing with problems, not the portrait gallery) seems to try tackling the countries problems early on. I think that is really clever, both in being effective but also fitting with HRH natural gift to interact with children. I hope she takes this on as a patronage. They could do really good work putting together something like that with Place2b.

Yes, indeed! She would be a great voice for it, that's for sure.

Catherine is wonderful, with children, isn't she? I think the causes she supports truly demonstrate what kind of person she is, and what she feels passionate about.

Good for her, as a former foster parent I appreciate anyone who brings interest in this cause.

The change was explained in the 'The Cambridge Patronage Threads' notice which is stickied at the top of the forum:

Quote:
The reason for this is to separate the events which are linked to patronages, and therefore hold long-standing interest/commitment, and regular one-off events, and to highlight the royal's involvement in these causes. This will make it easier to find information in the future.

Wonder if she is trying to pack visits in before she goes on maternity leave.

^^^All groups that work to improve the lives of Kensington residents.

^^^That makes sense for her to do what she can at this point in her pregnancy.

Not according to their website:

"Entrance to the academy is based purely on distance from the school – there is no banding or aptitude test, or any other form of selection based on attainment or ability. On arrival students will be grouped into different attainment bands, but we are not selective on entry."

Maybe a school for autistic children? Maybe taking that on as a cause?
Makes sense that the Duchess would be interested in that- it may not be too- she's interested in all kids. I just wondered because she seems so interested in kids with special needs. In any case, the visit will be wonderful.

I agree that it would be amazing if she took up something like that. (Especially for me since I have Aspergers :P) She seems so good with kids in general and handicapped/special needs in particular. So would be amazing. I would love her to combine her patronages more. Like the art room would be a really good to combine with alot of her other charities. Place2b plus art room, EACH plus art room etc.
