Video: Shy toddler bottles out of giving Duchess of Cambridge flowers - Telegraph
Quote:
He had spent all weekend practising for his big moment presenting a bouquet to the Duchess of Cambridge, but when two-year-old Ryan Dixon came face to face with the Royal guest, he had a sudden attack of shyness.

The normally boisterous toddler took one look at the Duchess, said “no no, Mummy, no Mummy,” and did his best to run away.

The Duchess laughed off the rare snub, telling Ryan: “I would be shy as well.”

It was left to Ryan’s mother, Tracy Samuels, to sheepishly present the Duchess with the bouquet of white lilacs and nistercians as her son buried his face in the folds of her clothes.

The Duchess had been attending a coffee morning in west London with volunteers and beneficiaries of the charity Family Friends, which provides year-long mentoring programmes for vulnerable families that are struggling to cope.

Video:
The Duchess of Cambridge has visited the ‘Family and Friends’ charity in west London today, meeting staff and volunteers who offer support and mentoring to those in need. However, meeting the 33 year old royal proved too much for one little boy, who was called upon to present Her Royal Highness with a posy of flowers. Two year old Ryan Dixon was led towards the Duchess by his mother Tracy Samuels, 36, but insisted on hiding behind her legs instead after nerves got the better of him-

I wonder if the 2 charity visits were sort of a try out for a future Kate patronage.

She did an event with Place 2 Be before she became patron. These 2 charity would fit well with the others and continue the kids mental health work.

"Daily Mail": Is it boy number two for Kate? The Duchess of Cambridge steps out in baby blue for morning with volunteers in London



Kensington Palace ‏@KensingtonRoyal The Duchess of Cambridge meets staff @KAA_Intrepidus https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B7tW6T6CUAEg7_N.jpg

First- Love the first photo. No words. I cried. Love the rubber duck float- Wills and George are going to have a ball with that in the bathtub and pool. Nanny and Kate will have their hands full!
Love the photos at KAA. The Duchess is always best with children. And the woman's smile...

Second- Great photo.

Here is a link to the charity that Catherine visited today - I hope that she becomes a patron of it and other, smaller charities like it.

The nice thing about taking on smaller charities that focus on a certain aspect of society like children, is that if it becomes umbrella'ed under the Royal Foundation, there is a better chance for interaction and events between them (such as Place2Be and the Art Room) and gain even more acknowledgement and donations.

It's the Royal Charities Forum which meets twice a year that brings together all of W&K&H's charities to help them learn from each other and interact. The charities themselves don't become part of the Royal Foundation.

In the article: Is it a boy, Why speculate whether Catherine is having a son because of the blue of her coat?
What would reporters think if her dress was pink and blue striped?

I saw a caption on a photo from the DM that said the baby was due on April 20. Which is bizarre since they never said a date just April.

There was an article in the Times at the weekend where a journo compared herself (size wise) against Catherine and they used 20 April. The article was rather bitchy IMO basically saying that HRH was the odd one out compared to "normal mums" As I dont think there is "normal" in pregnancy, I thought this rather silly.

I dont read the DM but perhaps this article was lifted from the Times. Happens a lot.

Considering she was probably about 13 weeks when they announced the due month or April... especially since they were spotted leaving a doctors appt 10 15 2014 I think they are at least a week off...lol all these lame headlines ....how stupid and the same with with hello magazine for this weeks cover...it just makes all those journalist look stupid.

Duchess of Cambridge Current Events 4: January 2014

Same thing happened when she was carrying George, if she wore blue, it meant a boy. So nothing new here.

However from her comments about the baby always moving, and we know George is very busy, I think Will and Kate are really in for it in a couple of years.

They did it with her due date with George too . Invented a due date and then all journalists and media copied it from each other like it was a real royal announcement.

Posts relating to Kate's upcoming visit to Portsmouth have been moved to the The Duchess of Cambridge Charities and Patronages thread, as the visit is related to her 1851 Trust patronage.
