The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle will take part in the first annual Royal Foundation Forum on Wednesday 28th February.

Under the theme ‘Making a Difference Together,’ the event will showcase the programmes run or initiated by The Royal Foundation, including @heads_together, @WeAreInvictus and @united4wildlife.

TRH and Ms. Markle will appear on stage together to discuss why The Royal Foundation was set up, the projects they are currently working on, and their ambitions for the future.

This should indeed be very interesting. The first of some joint engagements in the future I guess, and discussions about where the Royal Foundation is headed. I'm looking forward to it!

An excellent opportunity for Meghan to meet with those groups that are involved with the Royal Foundation.

It’s great news that we’ll see the #RoyalFabFour working together on the Royal Foundation!

This is going to be a wonderful engagement for the four of them to do. It shows that Meghan is not going to just dip her toes into the Foundation bit by bit but is diving in the deep end and getting involved as much as she can with gusto and willingness to do her part.

I had to laugh at the appelation of #RoyalFabFour. The Fab Four remind me too much of The Beatles and the British Invasion of the 60s.

Lol, I know. I like it though. The four of them are new faces of the royal family, so I just came up with that hashtag #RoyalFabFour.

Tomorrow is the Royal Foundation Forum where the Cambridges along with Harry/Meghan will be talking about why it was set up, the projects they are working on and their long range goals.

The engagement tomorrow will not address the serious issues initially. The press will make it a fashion off: Kate's bespoke coats vs. Meghan's layered neutrals. I think both are suppose to give a speech and their communication skills will be contrasted and compared.

I thought they all did very well. My only nitpick was I wish Kate spoke up more. It was hard to hear her. Other than that? I enjoy their rapport with each other. They are all clearly passionate. Nice to see Meghan look so comfortable and Harry was beaming watching her. A lot of support on that stage between the the four of them and I think they will be a great team and will try to get a lot done.

The video is up thread. Kate spoke quite a bit though it was hard to heard her a lot of the time. She gave a speech and answered many questions. I felt it was pretty even between them.

Notice the banner behind them of the stage...The Royal Foundation: Making A Difference Together. I think the name will be shortened to just The Royal Foundation. It sounds better than trying to include both couples titles in the name.

And really sweet how William lauded Catherine for coming up with the Heads Together campaign (after the brothers apparently came up with the idea to do something about mental health),

Yes, I too felt that the input was fairly even during the onstage conversation. Kate has a very soft speaking voice and she's not a natural pubic speaker. But she had some very important and significant things to say regarding mental health, addiction and helping families, with a focus on mothers and children. It's apparent that Harry, Kate and William have been doing so much work behind-the-scenes which culminated in Heads Together and putting all of their efforts under the same umbrella of the Royal Foundation, which was Kate's brainchild. William and the very articulate and competent host emphasized Kate's role. Kate seems to be someone who is very modest and softspoken, but also whip smart and savvy. A kind of 'walk softly and carry a big stick' type of person.

Kate also appears to be naturally a bit shy and reticent, but she also displays a sense of fun that sparkles from her eyes and her smile. I'll bet knowing Kate and having her as an intimate friend out of the public eye is a wonderful thing. There's obviously a lot of depth, caring and heartfelt kindness in Kate. Her personality and her speaking voice are just more understated than Meghan's. Plus the fact that Kate will one day be Queen and she's had to undergo a lot of training that probably made her be more cautious in public settings than she might normally be, since she's conscious of her role and not wanting to put a foot wrong.

Meghan with her acting background and a great deal of experience being in the public eye from an early age obviously exhibits a bit more ease in these settings in terms of public speaking. On the other hand, Meghan is new to royal protocol and to the unrelenting spotlight of being in the royal family, so Harry, William and Kate have surely helped to encourage her and to give her advice. She seems to fit right in. Being the same age and both marrying into royalty from more commonplace regular backgrounds, I think both Kate and Meghan are able to help each other, sharing notes and offering support to each other behind-the-scenes. They are probably bonding quite well together. Kate has seemed to be much more relaxed and happy and making less conservative style choices during her recent engagements. She seems to be enjoying her third pregnancy, and she looks gorgeous.

Harry and Meghan just naturally seem to have more outgoing and animated personalities than Kate and William. But they all seem to get along quite well. And I got the distinct impression that Kate and William have personalities that balance and suit each other, just as Meghan and Harry have personalities and interests that enhance each other. There is that thing though of making sure not to step on each other's toes. Respect for Kate/William's stature as future King and Queen is a delicate balance in a public setting. They all did a good job of acknowledging and crediting each other and making a public statement of how well they will be working together as a team. It did seem as though the host had intended for Kate to have the final word, when Meghan spontaneously had more to say in support of Kate's last comments, as the stage discussion ended.

At one point Meghan talked over Catherine which is not only rude in general but a definite royal no-no in terms of protocol.

Something she needs to learn as she goes along.
