Really looking forward to this. Thank you for sharing.

You have read my mind! It's things such as this that show what power and impact a person has, and Catherine has a lot of both. The little boy probably got a lot of boost of positive energy from the visit, and I'm more than positive that it meant the world to him and his family.

Lovely and thoughtful letter from Catherine,Duchess of Cambridge! She is a caring and compassionate person and she knows how to express herself in a beautiful way as we can see in this letter & from other occasions too.

I am disappointed with how few organisations kate is involved with so far, 92 year old Prince Philip is patrron of over 800 organisations! Hopefully the younger royals will continue to take on more responsibilities and ease the burden on the older royals.

We have to take into consideration too that Philip has been a full time working royal for as long as his wife has been on the throne. That's 61 years now. Kate's a part time royal. If the Firm is happy with things the way they are, I can't complain.

I completely agree that Kate is a new royal and Philip has been around for decades, but I think she is capable of doing much much more. i don't want to sound like one of the Waity Kate bashers on here but I think if she was more like Princess Anne (or even the Queen!) then she would be even more popular.

Probably in the not-too-distant future the Queen and DoE won't be around any more - and there will suddenly be a massive void in the royal workload - over 1000 organisations no longer with Royal patrons, and hundreds of fewer engagements being carried out. The Queen's children are working at full capacity but the younger 3 could be doing much more. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens in the next few years after the baby comes along.

Another solution could be for Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie to be on the royal payroll, but that doesn't seem to be an option.

She is doing much more. She's about to provide the House of Windsor with an heir to the throne. I would bet though that by the time she is as old as the Princess Royal, she'll have a workload as heavy if not heavier. She'll be Queen Consort long before that.

The Duchess of Cambridge's royal duties will increase over time. Can't really compare her to the veteran royals.

We have to remember that The Queen & Duke of Edinburgh's and other royals official duties also increased over time back in the day. They didn't start out with hundreds of charities and hundreds of official duties. It's a gradual process that takes years to develop.

Catherine will be adding more charitable patronages to her list as time goes on.

This will be such a special event for the two children, and their parents. I'm glad they get to meet Catherine.

The website says it begins at 6:15 a.m. eastern time. What is the time difference from there to the west coast? Is it a 6 hour? I dont want to miss it.

This made my day. How wonderful of Catherine to invite a family from EACH to join her.

I've read today that 300 people from 3 of their charities attended the gala dinner last night and stayed on board. Catherine was heard to ask if they had been comfortable. I'll see if I can find the source and edit later.

UPDATE: IT was the Daily Express

"Among the guests at the ceremony were 300 people from three royal charities supported by Kate, Prince William and Prince Harry - East Anglia's Children's Hospices, SkillForce, and WellChild who stayed overnight on the ship."
