her speeches are fine . I started to cry whenever I had to read my homework aloud in class (even during my last year of highschool ) and managed to go through college with only one oral presentation (which I of course botched ). I can't talk in public .

Speech at high school

Thanks to everyone sending all the wonderful information and links. I've watched the reports that show Kate arriving at the high school and cutting the ribbon on stage. Is there a link to her speech? Thanks

The necklace was a present to the then Princess Elizabeth from the Nizam of Hyderabad, and not King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.

Not sure if this has already been posted. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti..._campaign=1490 Hmmm not sure what to think of it. If it was really sent to her as a freebie via Pippa then it wasn't very wise to accept it IMO. As it is this is plain promo for said shop.

I was surprised KP accepted it because they return gifts from businesses until I read the Pippa part. I don't think (just guessing) that Pippa mentioned it was a freebie thus Catherine accepting it. Sure she thought it was a gift from her sister.

I have to say it was clever of the company to send it to Pippa because they know KP will send it back.

Is there a "current event" due before the overseas tour. She's rarely been seen since Xmas.

Nope. Unless one is announced pretty sharpish. The first time well see Catherine since St Patrick's Day is when they arrive in NZ in just over a weeks time.

Catherine Photographed Shopping For PG's Trip Down-Under.

Photograph and story in "Mail-Online" as the Duchess of Cambridge does some last minute shopping for Prince George's upcoming trip to NZ/Oz, with price and item details etc.

Cheers, Sun Lion.

Another Gap Photo Now Online - Hope Duchess Not Tired.

There is now another photo online from the Gap shopping trip - a closer shot, side on.

I can believe this upcoming Royal Tour is a much bigger deal than the previous trips to Canada and Asia-South Seas - just for the fact of taking a baby along.

It's a long, long way to come.

Even with the scheduled days "off", it seems everyone involved, from the Royal Couple, their staff, the accompanying press and the local media, will have to hit the ground running.

I'm expecting the local news channels to "breathlessly" announce when W & C change planes here in Australia for New Zealand.

Look out little PG - everyone is waiting to get that photo or video of you.

No Australian media will want Prince George's first overseas Royal Tour photo to be on New Zealand soil, if they can get a candid shot at the airport here.

I keep seeing the word "gruelling" in reports.

I don't think it will be that bad, but you wouldn't want to be run down at the start - there will be no time to "catch up".

I'm guessing there will be media following the Tour from other countries - not just the UK.

(The other photo of the Duchess leaving Gap is on "E".)

Cheers All, Sun Lion.

P.S. Hi Pranter - pullets - yes, if we didn't have a clucky, (broody), hen to set with some fertilized eggs, we'd get some pullets for the family chook run when the old girls stopped laying. Childhood days.

PP.S. Australia Post is selling chocolate bilbies - instead of chocolate eggs/bunnies - for Easter.

I was so tempted to get one yesterday just to photograph it for TRFs! (Well, and then eat it too.)

Won't be suprised to see these pressed into W & C's hands by the general public when they attend the bilby enclosure event at Taronga on Easter Sunday.

It's far from gruelling when compared with the tours undertaken by the Queen, DoE, POW and Princess Anne. There seems to be no more than 2 events a day and, on some days only one. The older royals usually have a far heavier workload (although the Queen's has eased up).

In addition they are travelling first or business class, have staff to assist them (including a nanny devoted to looking after George) every step of the way and will be staying in luxury accomodation. They are coming in autumn when the weather will be at its most comfortable, they are coming to countries where the culture is very, very similar to the UKs and where almost everyone speaks English.

Good luck to them. I hope they enjoy their trip and I am sure it will be a roaring success but please let's have some perspective. There will be gruelling trips to come, but this ain't one of them.
