On Monday, she's attending a coffee morning with Family Friends and opening the Kensington Aldridge Academy and the Kensington Leisure Centre.

Hhaa, I got a little mixed up too. Not by the dates and such but I had also paired the coffee with the fostering event so when they served tea and cakes I got a little confused :P

That's what happened here too. Good thing I got confused and paired them up, and had to come on for other things. I was going to skip the fostering event, and if I had, then I would have missed Monday.
FYI Family Friends seems to be a support group for disabled kids- some in foster care/ adoption. I checked.

I think it's up to us (royal watchers) to pay attention to the actual work Catherine is doing. The media feels the only way to grab the young readers attention, is to come up with some major fashionable headline, and then follow up with the purpose of Catherine's official engagements. I guess, when it comes down to the young royals, back in the day and today, fashion is what the media focus more on. It takes nothing away from the important work senior female members of the royal family do though.

Video:
The Duchess of Cambridge celebrated the work of foster carers and the children they look after when she joined them for a tea party. Kate sat down to a mid morning snack of cup cakes and chocolate brownies with energetic youngsters and their foster carers as she learned about their efforts. The Duchess, who is six months pregnant, looked stylish in a dark brown Hobbs coat that showed a hint of her baby bump. .

I like that the BBC coverage had the young university student who had been in foster care sharing a little of her own experience. With the current number of 60,000 plus children in foster care across the UK I hope that some publicity will encourage others to consider becoming guardians.

Cupcakes and chocolate brownies hunh? My kind of snack! They looked yummy in the DM.
A real live + sugar = a recipe for hyper kids who think they are in heaven!
Bet she gets more when she visits Family Friends. Bet she won't mind!

She was one of 2 receving Kate outside today, also in the briefing they had and when they said good bye and thank you she was the one who gave the memory box :)

I can bet you anything she didn't take a bite :P (No, no diet humour). The royals kind of never do. They are always on the move at such events that they have eaten beforehand to be able to focus on the interacting.

And no one wants her picture taken with a big ol' crumb of brownie hanging from her teeth!

I imagine there's also the security issue. If the protection people can't thoroughly investigate the source of the food, it's possible it could have be poisoned or even just not have been prepared in hygenic conditions and might make her ill.

True, I didn't even think that far. It looked like Emma (her RPO) was a little closer at times today than usual. The security might be heightened because of the general terror threats at the moment.

Can you imagine? Being a constant possible terrorist target? Bad enough not knowing if you're gonna be hit by a bus today. Even worse knowing that there could be bus drivers out there wanting to run you down...

All the reasons mentioned+ not wanting to take a potty break.
I was talking more about the kids than the Duchess eating.

There's a twitter rumor that they put Kate in the hospital yesterday and she is about to give birth. Surely it's too soon? Has anyone heard anything about this?

I have not heard this at all. Probably not at all true. It is technically possible since she is over 27 weeks but highly unlikely. The source?

Don't believe everything on Twitter. It will be announced that she in the hospital and in labor just like it was with George. Too many people would know if a royal is in a hospital so they don't even to try to keep it secret.

The more believable Twitter rumor is that W, K & G plus Pippa were spotted leaving London for Buckleberry yesterday.

Just a reminder that we don't encourage rumour-based discussion at TRF - especially in this day and age of social media. If you are quoting something off of Twitter, think about whether the source is reliable.

It is highly unlikely that Kate would be in hospital without an announcement being made shortly after. Further posts on this will be removed.

Kensington Palace @KensingtonRoyal · 23 mins 23 minutes ago
HRH will then formally open @KAA_Intrepidus Kensington Aldridge Academy and Kensington Leisure Centre @RBKC


Kensington Palace @KensingtonRoyal · 25 mins 25 minutes ago
The Duchess of Cambridge has a day of local engagements tomorrow starting with meeting families and volunteers @Family_Friends1

Royal visit at KAA | Kensington Aldridge Academy
Quote:
Kensington Aldridge Academy are pleased to announce that Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge is to attend the official opening of the school on Monday 19th January.

The Duchess will meet students, staff, governors and partners during a tour of the academy on this very exciting occasion. She will join some lessons, spend some time with students in the library and talk to the young entrepreneurs working in the Kensington Creates hub. Our staff and students will have a wonderful opportunity to showcase the quality of learning and incredible creativity that takes place every day in our amazing facilities. The royal visit will culminate in the unveiling of a plaque commemorating the formal opening of KAA.

The Duchess is also scheduled to open the neighbouring Kensington Leisure Centre, which replaces the former building where her husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry had swimming lessons at school. Once open in March 2015 Kensington Leisure Centre will host swimming lessons for our own KAA students.
