Excellent news! Really looking forward to seeing them work their magic, and bring attention to the issue of mental health.

William and Catherine Taking Part in Workshop with See Me

Quote:
We are delighted to announce that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be visiting Scotland to continue their work to tackle the stigma of mental health in young people.

On October 23rd they will take part in a workshop in Dundee with a number of young people who are using their experiences of mental health conditions to lead a change in the way people their age perceive mental health.

Earlier this year The Duchess spoke about the problem of mental health stigma preventing children from getting the help they need, and both visited volunteers from Mind and Time to Change on World Mental Health day.

The Duke and Duchess will be meeting See Me volunteers at the Dundee Rep Theatre.

There was delight in Dundee following the announcement that Prince William and Kate are to make their first official visit to the city.

The Earl and Countess of Strathearn, as they are known in Scotland, met while studying at nearby St Andrews University.

It has been revealed that the Royal couple are coming to Dundee next Friday.

High on the agenda is the mental wellbeing of young people, with the majority of engagements centred around the issue.

Lord Provost Bob Duncan, who as Lord Lieutenant is the city’s representative to the Queen, said: “I am delighted that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are coming to Dundee. I think it will greatly benefit the city’s young people, especially those who are dedicating time to raising awareness and tackling mental health issues.

“Many young people will have the chance to meet with William and Kate and share their stories and I think it will have a positive and lasting impact on both the city and issues surrounding mental health.”

She may have been busy hosting Chinese president Xi Jinping and his glamorous wife Peng Liyuan over the past few days but there was no rest for the Duchess of Cambridge as she journeyed to Dundee with her husband on Friday.

Resplendent in a bespoke blue coat by Scottish designer, Christopher Kane, and suede knee length boots, the mother-of-two joined Prince William to highlight mental health issues affecting young people on their first official visit to Dundee on Friday.

The royal style icon, who showcased a healthy glow, accessorised her look with coordinating blue drop earrings and suede gloves.

The visit focuses on the mental wellbeing of youngsters, which is a major priority for William and Kate, both 33, who are known as The Earl and Countess of Strathearn in Scotland.

I loved the little nugget that William and Kate stayed at the Hotel at the Old Course at St Andrews last night.

Busy week for them. I wonder, does William go back to work next week?

That is something we won't know. I don't think his shifts are structured to what we usually see as a work week. Usually here in the States, the work week is 5 days a week at 8 hours a day to get in a 40 hour work week. From experience here in WV, a rescue team could be on duty for 2 24 hour shifts a week and have 48 hours logged.

I'm not sure what the regulations are (the maximum amount of duty pulled in one shift etc.) and how they draw up the roster but I don't think we can assume that it is what we would call a normal work week. With a schedule like I've mentioned, it is very possible that William can schedule things such as the time for the Chinese state visit and other engagements he's participated in and still do a full duty roster with EAAA if they go by a monthly quota as some places do.

Of course, all this is my own supposition but its very possible that this is how its done.

I guess he will work these days in between tomorrow and the engagements coming up(including Bond premiere). I think he worked when the rugby game was that he didn't go to etc. He must have had like... 3 day off this month so far or something :P

I think the EAAA work has become unpredictable. Originally, we assumed a 4 on 4 off rotation which matched almost flawlessly through August. Now, there is no way to know if he is 4 on 8 off or something else. Probably something else.
I doubt EAAA much cares as I am sure increased donations more than cover his salary. I'm sure they have figured out something that does not make scheduling for his fellow pilots a complete mess.
And this is off topic, so we need to take it elsewhere if we continue?

It was William to the rescue as a woman slipped over when greeting the royal couple. "Don't worry, I've done it many times" he told her @PA

Well. Since they said that he would go down to 2/3 scheduel it fits nicely that it seems more irregular now.
