Kate was picture in the DM article chatting to guests including her PA Natasha Archer, her boyfriend photographer Chris Jackson and hairdresser Amanda Cook Tucker who does Kate's hair for tours and engagements.
Were Natasha and Amanda invited to the garden party for their role within staff at KP?

One previous poster noted that this may be the year that William and Kate make their Ascot debut - I've been wondering that as well as we have had a few firsts from the couple this past year in terms of the royal duties. I am going to the first day of Ascot maybe i will get lucky and they will be there that day though this tends to be the day Charles and Camilla come

Garden parties are hardly exclusive. Literally thousands of ordinary people attend every year. If Kate's PA can't snag an invite, something would be wrong.

I for one hope they don't go to Ascot. William and Kate have their own interests, polo and tennis. The social season is always tricky because you get criticism either way. Don't attend and people say 'why aren't W&K there', go and people say 'another hard day at the office I see'

I hope they do go to Royal Ascot. William and Catherine have gone to different races all the time, so they have an interest in horse racing. It's puzzling that they haven't been to Royal Ascot yet. I'm sure the explanation will be down to not being able to finding time in their diary to attend in the past. I hope they actually show up this year.

I just hope they keep up these appearances from now on. It's about time anyway. Time to stop treating the Cambridge's with kid gloves now.

Most of the social season is optional. Ascot isn't a constitutional requirement. I find it puzzling the Queen doesn't go to Wimbledon despite being it's patron but different strokes for different folks I guess.

I'm a tennis fan so I prefer to see Kate sitting court side rather than at Ascot. I doubt Ascot will even be a blip on the radar during Charles' reign

I understand it's optional, but if the Cambridge's have gone to other races in the past, what's the problem with the attend Royal Ascot too? I expect them to attend Wimbledon too. Especially since Catherine is about to take over The Queen's role.

King Charles and King William and their court will continue attend Royal Ascot. It's one of the main events in the Royal social calendar. Their friends also attend every year.

The queen is officialy owner of the Ascot estate. Charles as king will attend every Ascot day - to avertize this event and generate incomes from royal estate.

Charles shows the bare minimal interest in Ascot now. It's always been the Queen's thing, not because of the Crown Estate but because she loves the races.

Maybe it will become Camilla's thing but not Charles and William. There was talk last year of Harry taking it over one day but he doesn't really show much more interest than William. Ascot long ago lost it's lustre. Anyone can go. It's not like the old days, when it meant something to be seen there

When William and Kate attended Epsom Derby it was to support the Queen's horse that was a favorite/ strong contender... (dont recall the name). As was repeatedly mentioned in the Royal Windsor Horse Show - Ascot is the only race course which HM has not won. I know little of horse racing - does she have a contender this year? I think all of her family and friends will try and attend to support her. But I don't see Ascot becoming a regular addition to the Cambridge Royal calendar

It's the Epsom Derby that she hasn't won not Ascot which is a bunch of different races. That was 2012 which was the diamond jubilee kick off event plus the Queen had a great shot at winning so most of the family turned out. The Cambridges have only gone to a handful of horse races. Don't forget Ascot follows Trooping and Garter day so William would have off for those events and then would had to return back to SAR duty and now Air Ambulance right after Garter day on Monday.

Add to the fact that Charles actually enjoys the racing and is married to an avid race fan. They do attend most years now. I remember their visit to Australia in 2012 that included the visit to Melbourne for the Melbourne Cup - which Camilla actually presented. This is Australia's biggest race and race day.

William and Kate - different story of course. I am not so sure that William will keep up the traditions such as attending every day - one day - yes but everyday I doubt it.
