What type of new patronages do you guys think she should or will take on this year? It will be interesting to see what other things interest her.

I don't know why everyone is getting so testy here. The palace released some information that The Duchess of Cambridge is getting better, she's working behind the scenes and will get back to her official engagements soon.

I think we just have to be a little patient and wait until she's back out and about again.

Thank you for trying to get the thread back on track.

I've been wondering about this and I'd love for her to do something w/underprivledged kids and opening more chances for them to get into Sport. Such as helping w/the fees for whatever's needed and the Family can't provide that's part and parcel of the Sport. Such as a Uniform and Kleats for a Soccer Team. There's got to be organizations out there who are trying so hard to help these kids, but are limited by the current economic situation, who would LOVE to have a Royal Patron boost their visibility in the public.

That's just me of course, but that's one thing I'd love to see Kate get involved in.

Yeah I know some of the patronages have been dealing with those issues although I think William likes the sports programs and education. I don't know I'd love to see her branch out. She started with patronages that reflect her passions and personality but I think is be great for her to try something new like Diana with the landmines. I'd also like to see her on an international stage more. There are just so many opportunities.

@royalwatcherUK We expect an announcement on new patronages soon but royal sources say her first engagements will be existing charities.

I have no intention of engaging myself in a discussion about Catherine's workload. I just want to point out that such superficial comparisons are always misleading.
You have to take into consideration how events are listed or counted. And the numbers can differ vastly, depending on the way you count. For example: Mathilde's visit to the province Waals-Brabant is listed as 1 engagement, in the "British way" it would count as 5 engagements; Mathilde's visit to Vietnam from 10-16 March is listed as 1 engagement, if you would count Kate's visit to Singapore, Malaysia etc. as 1 engagement you would have to subtract 33 engagements from her total number.. and so on...and so on
Unless you take the trouble of counting the engagements of both princesses in exactly the same way you will not have a clear and correct picture.

She's expected to be back to work still this month :)

She's doing private visits

Can't blame her as her life will always be under a microscope, much more than even CP of other countries. God bless her for taking on the role, I certainly couldn't live like that [especially at that age] but she is doing a really nice and pleasant job.
I agree with you in all points,Catherine really seems like a person who does think a lot before she acts (or says something in public) which is why she doesn´t have any scandals (the half-nude pictures are not her fault!)and is so well-accepted.

Just like Tiggersk 8 I would love to see her doing more charity for underprivileged kids because she really has a good way with children.She is very calm,patient and has a voice that is enjoyable to listen to-maybe she could read a little bit from books for little school children?In one interview she told the reporter how much she adored "Anne of Green Gables",it is a wonderful book for many age groups.
Sport-related causes would also be good since the UK has a lot of obese people and Diabetes which could be prevented if people do more sports&eat healthier. (I know that other countries have the same issues,our modern age with tv,computer & cars makes us do too little exercise.)The Duchess seems like a very sporty person and her husband once said that she can´t be beaten on the playing field

I hope she does something that involves children with special needs. Children seem to really enjoy spending time with her, and she appears to really love being with them, so maybe taking on a project dealing with integration would be up her alley.

That's a good idea. I'd love to see her work with special needs kids. I also think it would be nice to see her do some work with at risk girls. I really enjoyed that she visited a group of teenage mothers during one of her visits.

I just think everyone should at least have a bit more patience and wait for the Duchess to start up her official engagements. The palace said that she's back to work and will be back at her public engagements soon. Now we know she'll be visiting Hope House for her Charity Action on Addiction on the 19th.

Action on Addiction is a really good charity. I'm glad to see Kate back to public duties.

Well she's obviously doing public engagements, since she has one in a few weeks (and its been announced that she's in contact and making arrangements for future engagements).

THE PREGNANT Duchess of Cambridge has not been idle during her time out of the public eye, as the children of an inner London primary school have been delighted to discover.
Kate has been in touch several times with the staff and pupils of the Robert Blair Primary School in Islington, and has even sent some sketches she has done for the children to appraise.

The women you mention also maintained an active work schedule throughout their pregnancies, in some cases right up until they gave birth (like most "normal" pregnant women do). It seems unlikely Kate will do the same. (Though I am willing to be pleasantly surprised.)

^I haven't followed all of the royal pregnancies, but did any of them suffer from HG?

Every pregnancy is different, so I don't think we can really compare work schedules. At the end of the day, the amount of work they tackle really comes down to how they feel during the pregnancy.

Kate has just recovered from an illness. Shouldn't we wait a few months before we start talking about how lazy she is during this pregnancy?

Those women didn't have HG and didn't spend a significant time in the hospital. Can we just agree that EVERY woman has the right to make decisions about how active she should be during her pregnancy along with her doctor and husband?
