Exactly. However, I think that those who constantly harp on this couple will always have a reason to criticize, even with the accounts such as posted above. It's the sad reality, though I highly doubt that William and Catherine care about what their constant critics say. They operate in ways that suit them, and the Firm. They can't and won't please everybody.

Mental Health Fdn @MHF_tweets
The Royal couple met us last week. Here's Chris O'Sullivan's reflections:

Quote:
Last Friday, Mental Health Foundation staff had the honour of meeting their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as part of a Royal visit to the city of Dundee.

The Royal couple have made mental health and, in particular, the mental health of children and young people a major priority for their charitable work, and the visit to Dundee was constructed around several engagements on this.

My first reflection on this was that the media and social media narrative around the visit focused on mental health. The fact that there were several engagements with different focuses and participants gave the story legs, and an opportunity for more breadth than normal.

....The Duke and Duchess were very engaged with the subject. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but what I found were two people with influence, unlike almost anyone else on the planet, who clearly got what we were saying, asked clear and intelligent questions, and had clearly taken in and valued the the young people’s input on the day. We always strive to speak truth to power, and this is always easier when people in power so clearly demonstrate interest.

I left Dundee with a spring in my step and a smile on my face. I felt that the work we do was recognised, and that some of the people we work with felt validated and encouraged.

I'll put this here for now

Quote:
THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are to hold talks with executives from social media companies to discuss how to “crack the issue” of cyberbullying.

The couple, who are on a mission to help young people who suffer bullying and mental health problems, will meet organisations including Facebook and Twitter in the new year for a “constructive dialogue” about what more can be done to protect youngsters from online harassment.

Prince William has already had informal discussions with several technology companies and is understood to be keen to explore what more he can do to help. A source said the couple were particularly concerned about what they had heard from young people about cyberbullying.

Found the Times article very interesting.

As well as the information re anti-bullying, it also highlighted the behind the scenes work we never see or, generally, gets reported. Quote:

The royal couple are big supporters of anti-bullying charities, and are keen to help young people suffering harassment online

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will meet with bosses from Twitter and Facebook in a bid to tackle cyberbullying.

William and Kate hope to have a 'constructive dialogue' with social media and technology companies - including Facebook and Twitter - over what more can be done to protect youngsters online, a royal aide told the Sunday Times .

It is a subject close to the royal couple's heart, as demonstrated recently during a visit to Dundee in support of anti-bullying and mental health charities.

Earlier in October the couple met young people who had suffered from mental health issues during a visit to charity MInd.

The Duke also took part in an anti-bullying workshop run by the Diana Award charity, founded in memory of his late mother.

William and Kate will visit projects in Caernarfon - just across the water from their former home in Anglesey - Snowdonia and Denbigh.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge continue to focus global attention on mental health

We are thrilled to announce that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will visit Mind services in Wales on Friday 20 November.

Their Royal Highnesses marked World Mental Health Day with a visit to Mind in Harrow this October and now show their continued commitment to raising awareness about mental health problems. The day will include an opportunity for the Duke and Duchess to meet young people involved in art projects run by Ynys Môn and Gwynedd Mind, and men from the Vale of Clwyd Mind Men's Shed project in Denbigh.

I really hope the couple is stepping up their game, as it seems from the hints!

I'm tending to believe that all of these latest events have been in the works for quite a while and only being released to the public domain when its close to the date and time of the event. We have to take into consideration that not only does the place they're visiting need to know well in advance in order to make preparations, sweep for security and the multitude of other details that need attending to, it would also have to be known in advance in order for William to work with his EAAA schedule.

I think they've been quietly plotting and planning things behind the scenes for a very long time and getting all the ducks in a row to make it all happen.

Prince William and Princess Kate are taking their efforts to help raise awareness about the difficulties faced by those with mental health issues to north Wales next week.

The day of activities, which will follow similar visits in England and Scotland, will begin on Nov. 20 when they arrive mid-morning in the town square of the Caernarvon.

It will be especially poignant for the couple as they spent nearly four years living quietly on Anglesey, on the north west tip of the country, when William was a helicopter pilot in the RAF search and rescue teams. "They are delighted," to be going back," a spokesman tells PEOPLE.

The operational brief in September had both the Dundee trip and Wales trip listed as on the schedule just not specific dates. With Kate on maternity leave and William training and working at the air ambulance, Miguel and Rebecca had all summer to setup engagements for the end of the year.

Life is short. Perhaps being nice and polite to and about people is the way forward for us all ?
