Every time there's an engagement involving Catherine and children, I find myself thinking 'I know what I'm in for', but I'm always proven wrong. With each engagement, she seems to really blossom, and I think that has to do with the fact that she's a natural when it comes to working with children. I'd love to know if she realizes that even a few seconds of her time is a lifetime of memories for these children.

Same here. With Catherine, ( and a few other people) I think" That's it, there is no way it can get better than this," and next time it does.I'd love to know the same thing- I hope with all my heart that she does.

Catherine really has taken her job as William's wife and senior member of the royal family very serious and with great ease. You can tell she really enjoy her official engagements. I'm sure there are some nerves there because all members of the royal family are a bit nervous when embarking on engagements but, like all other senior members of the royal family, Catherine carry's on with her duties and I really like seeing that.

She really like the children and they like her right back.

It's catch 22 isn't it? For all the royals - they make it seem easy, like today with a positive interaction with the children (under difficult circumstances, let's be honest) so people start to think it is easy. And that is so far from the truth.

I think it looks easy, because she's got the natural talent. It's the same with teaching; it looks easy, if you're observing a person who was born to do the job. In reality, it's difficult, stressful, and exhausting. At the end of the day, all I want to do is go home, get into some comfy pjs, and not think about my job. I'd imagine that after a day like today, Catherine would be the same way. She's a pro at her job, so it looks effortless and seamless. One would be a fool to think that what she does is easy, but you'd be surprised how many fools are roaming this little planet.

Took another look at this article.....All the pics are just wonderful- The level of warmth and compassion is stunning- though not surprising. Love the photos of Kate laughing at the pool, and joining in at the tea party. And as I said before, the pic of her stroking the little boy's hair bring tears to the eyes....

Agree with you! Thought about what you said about a lifetime of memories- that is important for every child, but crucial for those whose lives may be short.

Agree with both statements. She's a natural, and has an abundant amount of compassion, love, and kindness to give to those who need it most.

I found this on facebook. Enjoy the pictures.

This is an interesting article in that it gives some backround as to (perhaps) how Catherine got involved through charitable work done by her parents company. It is information that I hadn't read about before.
Great article- Love the pics here!
I find the expression on the little boy's face in the 3rd pic hysterical!

It doesn't get any better, does it? Catherine, surrounded by children.

To those who've enjoyed the pictures & videos of The Duchess of Cambridge at Naomi House on Monday, you would be happy to know that I've been told by their Communications Officer that they're preparing a 5-minute video detailing her visit. There will be footage not seen by the press. Due to be released Friday or Monday
