I agree with you. I think it's good to care what friends think, but cut back on people who want to be nasty for no reason. No we can't forget William. The both of them with children- no words needed. I'm so thankful they both have the confidence they need, because no photos of them cuddling children would be awful. Inner Kate? I love it, but even if you did Daria, from what you told me, I'm not sure inner Kate would have an effect on this individual. I'm not even sure the real Kate and William could have an effect on that individual.

You're right, no one could have an effect on that individual, which is sad. As to the 'inner Kate', during my first year my TA noticed how I lacked confidence, especially in social situations, so she told me to think of someone I admire, and try to imagine what the person would do in a given situation. I tell you, that worked well when I was trying to handle children, but with adults, I just became myself, and everything went out the window. I have a feeling that if William, or Catherine ever read this, they would either be extremely amused, creeped out, or flattered. Guess it's good that I may not find out. Anyhow, soon we'll be seeing their amazing social skills in action. They do have an engagement coming up on Sunday. Can't wait.

I don't know what they would think either. Amused and flattered most likely. It would be easier to let your "inner Kate or inner William" come out with kids I think. Don't know why. I just do.
But I imagine you were Daria( loving, funny, fun) with the kids too.

To be honest, Daria, I think they would be flattered to the max that they have made that kind of an impact on someone else's life.

These are two people that go through life just being themselves and there's no need for putting on airs or phoniness although I can imagine there are some days when they really have to work hard to put on a "game face" when they have something else on their minds (such as William in the Solomon Islands when those nasty shots of Kate came out). They have no need to look to any person or publication for self validation nor do I believe they seek to emulate or copy anyone else. These are people comfortable in their own skins and it shows.

Those two little sweeties have themselves some good role models I think.

Osipi and Rose, as always, you're right. Also, children are very easy, because they're genuine. It's not difficult to appease a child, especially if one has a natural talent, like William and Catherine. Children can judge character better than any adult, so if a person is phony, children won't gravitate to him/her. Honestly, because children usually love to play with me, I always worry when a child is wary, or takes a while to warm up. I know it's not personal, but it still gives me something to ponder about. As a teacher, I'm trained to reflect, and find areas that need improvement.

Of course, your'e just doing your job. You and I both know it's nothing personal. But of course you worry- you want to be the best teacher you can for one thing, and for another- these are children with special needs. You want to meet those needs, and help them grow as much as they can.
Honestly, and this may sound silly- give or take a hospital patient, a disabled person, and an animal or two-all my opinions of who William and Catherine are were formed when I watch them with children, and when I want new insight, I look at the reactions of children first who usually confirm my instincts. Children never lie. If William and Catherine were'nt the real deal, children wouldn't gravitate to them, and they wouldn't be able to do a thing about it. Children don't act- neither do William and Kate- you look at the photos- you know it's real. William and Catherine are genuine. I love seeing them with children.

Racing has been cancelled for the day due to bad weather

Quote:
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge braved the rain to cheer on Olympic gold medallist Sir Ben Ainslie and his crew as they race in the America's Cup World Series.

Fresh from celebrating Prince George's birthday on Wednesday, the keen sailors left their son and two-month-old daughter Princess Charlotte in the care of royal staff to travel to the south coast for a day of meeting the home and international teams, touring state of the art facilities and presenting medals to the winning crews.

It is the first official engagement for sailing fan Kate, who became Royal patron of the 1851 Trust in October, since Princess Charlotte's christening on July 5, and she is a committed supporter of Sir Ben's team.

Stop the presses, it appears the Duke has bought himself a new pair of jeans? Or have I just been inattentive?

Lol, I noticed that too. It's about time!

Too bad the sailing was cancelled. It was good seeing the Cambridge's together again. God knows when the next official joint engagement will be.

I think the whole day was cancelled due to the weather. It seems like they just met the crew.
