I'm looking forward the announcement too I remember last year SJP announced her patronages on 4th january, so probably would be the same this year.

Let's wait and see

I read in an article that the announcement could be delayed because of her pregnancy. The reason is that she wasnt able to make visits to the projects and therefor she didnt decide.

Quote:
A children's hospice has seen a surge in its profile since the Duchess of Cambridge became its Royal patron a year ago.
The Treehouse in Ipswich is run by East Anglia's Children's Hospices, or EACH - one of four charities chosen by Kate to receive special support. "Kate's got that credibility. She's very newsworthy, so people recognise her. They trust her. They like her.
"She's got that real warmth about her in the way that Diana had and she is also able to champion of some of those unpopular causes like we saw with Diana, putting things like Aids and landmines on the map."
Kate Middleton Donates Baby Hamper to Charity After Pregnancy Announcement - UsMagazine.com
Quote:
"EACH is invaluable to hundreds of families. In the past year there has been an unprecedented amount of care and support delivered to children and young people with life-threatening illnesses, and their families," the mom-to-be says in a statement on the auction's page online.
"I have been fortunate enough to meet some of those who have been supported by EACH, and seen firsthand the positive impact this organization has on their lives," she continues. "For both families accessing care, and those who have been bereaved, EACH is a lifeline at an unimaginably difficult time."

'It really has been a huge bonus for us' - Juli Beattie @TheArtRoomUK director speaking about their royal patron The Duchess of Cambridge

Mark Stewart‏@RegalEyes
'It's just fantastic for everybody, for the youngsters, for the community, to have someone like the Duchess come to Rose Hill & East Oxford'

Mark Stewart‏@RegalEyes
our colleagues & our projects. The Duchess has actually put us out there & we're now a national charity. We're well known.'

Mark Stewart‏@RegalEyes
On the Duchess of Cambridge,the charities Patron 'We really couldn't have a better royal patron.She was completey engaged with our children,

Mark Stewart‏@RegalEyes
Juli Beattie, director of The Art Room, who last year experienced 'their best year yet' spoke today of the benefits of royal endorsement.

I'm actually glad that Juli Beattie of The Art Room is making it known that Catherine's patronage actually matters and that she's doing great things for her charity. So often we hear some people complain about the coverage the Duchess's charities get in the media and the focus is on her wardrobe but no matter what her charities are actually benefitting from her Royal Patronage and that she's very active in highlighting their causes.

Like all other members of the royal family, The Duchess of Cambridge is constant contact with her charities. There's the daily or weekly correspondence with the charities officials, meetings and briefings. It goes on behind closed doors but Her Royal Highness is very active in her as patron.

Instead if thinking of taking on more patronages to visit them once a year, how about dedicatig a little more time to this?

EACH@EACH_hospicesWe're very sorry to say that we've decided to cancel our Clothes Swap event in Bury St Edmunds on 8th Feb due to low ticket sales

I'm sure the EACH staff, Catherine and her aides would've done something about this if they could. The Duchess of Cambridge is briefed by daily and weekly and meetings are held on her charities of which she's royal patron. The palace just said that HRH is pretty busy with meetings.

That's too bad they had to cancel that event though.

Is she really busy with meetings?? It's getting a bit dificult to believe it ... but let's assume she is. Why are they not made public? Isn't one of her roles to make the charities known to the public? Raise awarness, raise funds, etc, etc. Sure, she can visit the charities without it being made public, she can be in constant contact with the charities and we'll never know about it, but shouldn't she visit them more often? to me it's clear she should and could if she wished so... she's not a patron of many charities after all. How many times has she visited EACH? Once, i think... She could do much more for her charities and this is an example, she could announce that she would be at the Clothes Swap event, I'm sure many people would turn up just to see her. Or instead visit the charity and say something like "Look, there'll be an event on February, why don't you come?" I'm sure some people would turn up, people from the region who would go just for curiosity

How many times do these other royals visit their charity each year?
Didn't she just sent them a baby basket for charity? Did she visited their place during her Asian tour #Each

Did her Doctors say she can go back to work yet after her Hyperemesis gravidarum? Some people (journalist) are acting like they know what her health is just because she went to a gas station, the gap and a drug store.

^Its a very strage Hyperemesis gravidatum if you ask me, one that allows her to hand in an award on TV and attend the opening of her portrait, but not do ANY work for 2 months complete.

Until everyone was sure she is well, no engagements would have been organised. This is out of consideration for the places to be visited. IT takes a lot of organisation, plus security etc for a visit to take place, so cancelling is wasteful of a lot of people's time and effort.


Now the Duchess is feeling well, her staff will be organising meetings but, again, these take time - particularly sorting out diairies, arranging security, etc. It's all very well saying "do it" but people and places need to be available. It isn't just her diary that needs to be accommodated.

If people took time out to realise what organisation these meetings take by ALL concerned, perhaps there would be less negativity.


I'm just pleased that she is now well.

The palace just said that The Duchess of Cambridge is busy working and will start up her official engagements soon.

Members of the royal family usually start back performing official engagements in February (depending on the schedualing). Like The Queen will kick off her year of official engagements on Feb 5th, before returning to London.

She was going to Christmas lunches in December as well so obviously has been feeling better for quite some time. I would also think that going shopping would be more tiring than visiting one of her charities for perhaps an hour. It's all a bit strange.

These are informal meetings that if she was feeling unwell, she could leave. Setting up formal meetings which could involve 10's of people (ie a hospital or hospice visit) is a lot of organising on both sides, and a lot a disappointment if it is cancelled. OR of course she could stay and throw up over everyone

She was only at the ceremony for about 45 minutes, so she didn't spend much time at the event.

She took a few months off to take care of herself, and she's now back to her daily meetings with advisors and her charities. According to the Palace, they're working out her schedule and she should be back to public duties in February.

A private lunch is much different than a charity event. If she gets sick while dining with friends/family/employees, she can leave or cancel. Much trickier with a public engagement.

As for shopping, hasn't it only been in the last few weeks that she's been spotted out and about? Before that, things were pretty quiet. Now that she's back to work (behind the scenes) and feeling much better, I imagine we'll see her resume normal activities - like shopping, getting coffee, having dinner with family, etc.

It's been known that Catherine often visit her charities privately and she's in constant contact with them. Her diary is being arranged within these meetings.

She never stays for more than 1 hour when she visits a charity. And since when HG is an excuse for women to stop working? Pregnant women do not get 3 months off work for HG, (yes in February when shes back it will be 3 months), and you can hardly call what she does work. So make all the excuses you want for her. I have the right to believe the palace has made a statement that she visits her charities in "private" because all this situation is getting a bit ridiculous and the criticism is increasing. Not twits about her private visits but a lot on her shoppings.

Give her a break. Her condition was severe enough to land her in a hospital, so that alone should say something. I'm sure if a 'regular' person had the same exact thing, more than likely she would get time off from her job. Maybe not three months, but several weeks for sure. I know that my job allows for extended medical leave, and I'd imagine that Catherine's condition would be a good enough reason to take advantage of something like that. I won't even touch your comment about Catherine's work not being work, because that's just ridiculous. Working with people is work, and a stressful work at that. Trust me on that, I do it every single day, and when I come home, I want to sit in peace and quiet and not talk to a soul (at least not in person).
