We'll see The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Wimbledon tomorrow. British number one Andy Murray will compete in the quarterfinal. #royal
A nice, light-hearted engagement, especially after the emotional roller-coaster of today.

From her patronage choices and various speeches, she is interested in hospice care for children, children mental health, addiction, encouraging young people to participate in sports, art, natural history and sailing.

She supports charities that deal with children's hospices (EACH), I believe she also works with a charity called Place to Be, which deals with children's mental health, does some volunteering with Scouts, and she's involved with The Art Room, which provides art programs in schools. You'll probably get a better answer in the thread that deals specifically with her charities and patronage system, which can be found in this section of the forum. I think as time goes on, she'll get more and more patronage system, but now, she does a wonderful job with what she has. The small number of charities allows for a more hands-on approach, and a more personal touch. Her passion seems to be helping children, and she's absolutely amazing when interacting with them. I will apologize for any misinformation. I'm pulling the charities off of the top of my head if you will. Again, check her patronage system and charities thread.

You said it with less words than I. Well done! I'm so long-winded, that more often than not, I come out with novels for posts .

She's involved with a number of charities that she's very hands on with. I'd like to see her take on more firmer roles as a senior royal. It would be great to see her gain some honorary colonelcy's so she can form a relationship with her own regiments. Just more firmer roles and I know she can handle it.

Lets also not forget The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry which breaks its interests down into 3 primary groups. Conservation, The Armed Forces and Youth.

Yes, they are also busy with their Royal Foundation as well.

My guess is the Jaeger white with navy trim with her trusty navy blazer.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were at Wimbledon to cheer on Andy Murray as he battled it out against Canada's Vasek Pospisil on Centre Court today.

Kate, who has long been a tennis fan, was elegant in a scarlet dress by L.K Bennett and looked relaxed and happy as she chatted to her 33-year-old husband while waiting for play to begin.

William and Kate's appearance on court comes a week after a memorable visit from the Duchess of Cornwall, who was left smiling after being presented with Murray's sweaty wristband.

I've missed seeing William and Catherine on official engagements. Other than the Christening and Trooping, it seems like it's been a long time.

Its unfortunate that Kate has time to attend a tennis match but not to attend the serious event 7/7 together with Prince William.

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Current Events 6: January 2014

She's on maternity leave. Other than William and Andrew no one else did an engagement concerning the 7/7 bombings. And if she did go with him, the papers will be more about her clothes than the event she is going to.

The people that were organizing the memorial for,yesterday mentioned that the survivors/those who,were attending specifically asked for William, not for William and Catherine. Therefore, she couldn't have just shown up. Please, don't get your panties in a twist.

My guess is that it's because this was a ten year anniversary event. William did work with the survivors right after the attack happened, right? Maybe he knows some of them, and it was more appropriate for him to do this alone

I see The Countess of Wessex has joined William & Catherine in the Royal Box at Wimbledon.

Well, it will be great once the Cambridge's return to their joint engagements. Catherine resumes her official duties going into next month. I've missed them.

Love all! William and Kate giggle affectionately as they cheer on Andy Murray at Wimbledon... and Zara, Sophie Wessex and David Beckham are there too-
