^^^I know that my parents and I would love this type of trip. They're huge fans of the "Bletchely Circle."

I knew it. As soon TRF starts to complain announcements come flooding in.

If there is anywhere in the world that they would want to keep a pulse on how people are seeing the royals and their reactions, this place would be it. Its not uncommon to do a google gopher on a royal subject and have posts from TRF come up in the search.

Its the summer season too so they all get busy now before taking a summertime break.

There are always complaints the day after and some time hours after she had just done an engagement about when her next one will be. I doubt the palace or any palace for that matters knows that this place exist

That may be true. Royal handlers gauge the public opinion by reading various printed and on-line media. The TRF is one of the biggest source of information.
Adding engagements to The Duchess' of Cambridge calendar at this point in time looks a bit awkward.

They wouldn't be 'adding them at this point in time'. These things are arranged months in advance. They are not announced until much closer to the event but any engagement in Kate's calendar for the next 6 months is already in the planning stage even though it won't be announced until a week or two before the event.

By the time an engagement is announced the invitation to the engagement has been received, reviewed, and accepted, the security team has gone on at least one recce, transport has been arranged, minute details worked out down to timings, what to do and/or expect, wardrobe planned and even the royal/s concerned briefed about the event - and then the event is announced (although for most of the royals it is simply added to the Future Events list on the CC or PoW website but with William and Kate it makes the news).

A couple of quick observations:

1) I totally agree with iluvbertie, royal engagements aren't just planned on the fly unless its some sort of emergency (ie. riots, floods, etc.) as these events aren't planned. There are a lot of logistics that are involved.
2) When Catherine and William came back from Australia/New Zealand, it was stated by those in the know (i.e. royal reporters, etc.) that they had a busy couple of months planned coming up. So the announcement of these engagements isn't actually a surprise to me. And this was stated before the last couple of days. The BRF is pretty busy from Spring to Summer, they would have to plan these engagements around the Trooping of the Colour, Ascot, the Order of the Garter, the WWII ceremonies, etc.
3) I am not sure what people want from Catherine. When she doesn't have engagements, all you hear is she should be doing more, what is she doing, why isn't she doing more engagements, when is her next engagement, etc. And now she has engagements planned, and you have people questioning her motives? She can't win for losing.

She is attending a BP garden party for the British Red Cross on the 12th if I recall. The last normal BP garden party is tomorrow afternoon. Kate's America Cup event is early morning so it is possible she will be at the garden party tomorrow. I don't think they announce the extra royals in advance for normal ones. Charity ones they do like the one Harry went to was for the Household Calvary.

Duchess of Cambridge Current Events 4: January 2014

From Emily Andrews of the Sun twitter feed, Kate is not going to the Red Cross garden party on the 12th but is going to the regular garden party on the 10 with the Queen and birthday boy Philip. I wonder if William will continue to escape the garden party circuit for another year

So nothing on the 12th then?
How will she do the 2 engagements tomorrow?
So the only 2 engagements for the Duchess then are tomorrow, apart from the engagement at BP on the 18th?
And TTC and OOTG?
Why does Friday the 13th stick out in my mind? Cambridge/Harry/Other Royal engagement that day?

I wonder if she was ever going to the one on the 12th. Prince Charles (as President) and Princess Alexandra (Vice Pres) are attending.

The fact there isnt just one site where all the engagements are is confusing. PA attendance is on the Royal site; PoW on the PoW site and there is no mention of any garden party under DssCambs. (this is at 01:36 10/6)

Its a muddle

The last time William attended a Garden Party was in 2002 with his father at Holyroodhouse. It would be great if he started attending again.
I think the palace got the dates mixed up on Catherine's attendance.
