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 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?

Well,in one point they are correct-charities have always been largely dominated and supported by women.Royal women were no exception and often did wonderful things for their citizens like opening schools,hospitals or lending money when disaster struck a family.Of course reigning monarchs also do it for PR and to be popular in order to stay in power but most of the people involved truly felt for poor people and tried to relieve their suffering.
I am happy that the Duchess is following the tradition of women before her and works for charity.

Even when there is an announce date of when she will be seen working (in less than 2 weeks), you interpreted it has if the palace is lying?

And her going to the NPG (one of her patronage) in January was not enough obviously for some, who got a lot of money and visitors from that visit.

Other than the bodyguards, Will and Kate don't get paid by the British taxpayers.

No, I don't say they are lying. She will do that public duty in 2 weeks.

What I don't quite believe is she was working during january

So those patronage were lying about her meeting, keeping in contact with them? Her sending arts to those kids and her calling the hospitals asking about those kids that she met?

I think it's good to watch the Documentary 'Monarchy: The Royal Family at Work' you will see how much work the royal family do behind the scenes as well as in public. They are very busy people and you'll see just because you don't see them on public duties, doesn't mean they are just sitting at home painting their toe nails while watching Downton Abbey.

Thank you,Dman,that´s right!Most of the work is unseen by the public.
But let me tell you-no matter in what job you work someone will come and tell you it is not so difficult.My mother works as a nurse and she has long working hours,physical labour and constantly needs to learn about new medications but still some people believe the only thing she does is to bring breakfast and ask if the patient has slept well;-)

The truth of the matter is .... for some people Katherine will NEVER do enough. And they will be judgemental, resentful and jealous no matter what.
