I must say how proud I am of the Duchess of Cambridge. Her speech today was deeply meaningful, meaty and personal. I've been waiting for her to really put some personal touches in her speeches on the issues she really care about. Today, Her Royal Highness did just that.

I liked Catherine pointed out the highs and lows of being a parent. She made it known that, although she have the help of a nanny, being a mother can be very challenging and rewarding.

She, William and Harry are really doing a good job in highlighting mental health issues.

I agree. Today's speech was her best one so far :)

i think kate needs a speech professional to help her. her tone is monotonous and it is hard to follow her without yawning. i guess this comes mostly from the fact that she reads directly from her papers rather than just referring to them as most royals do (letizia is a good example of this).

nice touch of her to talk about her personal experience though. that helps people to follow the story more easily, despite the unchanging tone.

on the other hand, her demeanor with people is excellent. i liked the video of her talking to a group of mums, it just seemed so informal and she was so engaged that she makes people feel so relaxed. she is clearly 'in her sauce'.

We are all good and less good with different things. Kate is clearly improving, and that is all one can wish. Comparing her to Letizia, the news anchor, is hardly fair. And the Queen basically reads all her speeches this way as well.

My mother is marketing for a project at the Department of Health surrounding the issues that were raised in Catherine's speech and as a result, she was invited to the event. She didn't get a chance to speak to Catherine herself, but she did listen to her speech. She said that Catherine appeared to be nervous at first but eased into the speech as it went on, and that she came across as very ordinary in the terms of her personality - or from what she could gather of her personality from the speech. I've enclosed a photo she took of Catherine at the event below (it's a bit blurry because of the device she used to photograph Catherine):

I think people get it wrong in thinking Catherine don't have much to worry about in her motherhood, because she have a nanny and two large homes. Just because she have a little help and some money in the bank, doesn't not mean being a mother is smooth sailing for her. She acknowledged she have some help, but the job in being a mom isn't a walk in the park for anyone.

Attitudes to mental health in Britain are now at a "tipping point", the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have said, as they sign up a host of high-profile public figures to help "shatter the stigma".

The senior Royals launched the next stage of their Heads Together campaign on Thursday: a series of ten videos designed to spark "simple conversations" about mental health.

Starring the likes of Freddie Flintoff, Ruby Wax, Stephen Manderson - better known as the musician Professor Green - and Alastair Campbell, the videos are part of the Royals' ongoing battle to break down the "walls of judgement" they perceive to be standing in the way of progress.

One thing. Those headbands do not go well with the ever present blue suits but its a temporary thing for now.

Those wax effigies are truly amazing and very life like and is almost like looking at a photograph of the real live person.
