Well, I would start asking. The Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment would be a great start for Catherine.

Prince William and Prince George – the story behind their special bond

Quote:
As he clung to his daddy, arms wrapped around his neck in a tight hug, it was clear for the world to see that Prince George and his father, Prince William, share a very special bond.

The 34-year-old royal, who will one day be King, has made it clear from the moment he became a father, that finding time to devote to his family was vital to him.

service and duty to others as very important," he added. "If I can't give my time to my children as well, I worry about their future."

"I'm concentrating very much on my role as a father," said William of his priorities shortly earlier this year. "I'm a new father and I take my duties and my responsibilities to my family very seriously and I want to bring my children up as good people with the idea of

"William's always said he wanted to be a hands-on parent and he and George are clearly incredibly close and affectionate with one another," said HELLO!'s royal correspondent Emily Nash, who joined William, Kate and their children on the tour

I'm sure the Queen (and the PoW) fully support this...afterall the Queen had a very close relationship with her parents and sister and was unable to have a similar one with at least some of her children due to her duties/role in life.

How wonderful that William is able to spend more time being a parent.

He has created a beautiful family for himself. A beautiful wife and two adorable kids. He have to do what it takes to take care of them. Although, the Cambridge's roles are increasing, the first priority is his family and that's how it should be.

I believe you mean the Own and not Royal regiment. The Royal regiment which was formed in 1992 and named for Diana is British based and Margrethe is colonel, no link to Canada. The princess of Wales own regiment is the Canadian based one, named in honour of queen Alexandra. Any member of the Royal Family connected to Charles can serve, but I don't see Kate bring appointed until princess of Wales. It isn't required but I find it unlikely.

She us already patron of the Canadian Rangers. If they want a connection, so called honorary appointments is not the way. They need a real link. Being an 'honorary soldier' will not create any real bonds, real charity work will.

Thanks for the info. I still think Catherine being appointed to some honorary military roles and becoming patron of a couple of Canadian based charities will created a deeper bond with the people of Canada. Same goes for William. Working visits to Canada would be good for them.

We're just now at the cusp of seeing Will and Kate take on more and more responsibilities as senior working royals for the "Firm" and with the long road ahead into the future, it would be hard to believe that their connections to the military and their regiments would not become a big part of that.

Charles has a long list of honorary military ranks but looking at the list, the oldest ones were bestowed in the late '70s as he started his lifelong career defining his role as The Prince of Wales. It just seems logical that this same pattern will be followed by W&K as time passes.

This link shows all of the positions, titles and honors that Charles holds. Quite impressive if you ask me.

Oh I agree that they will get their own honorary military appointments. It's all part of being Royal. But if they are looking to build a connection to Canada, some charities and patronages would go much further building those links then some ceremonial title

Hopefully some of the charities and organizations they visited while in Canada will be added to their patron list.

I see your point Countessmeout and after thinking about it for a bit, I don't think the Cambridges will ever have an outright charity or patronage in Canada. Perhaps doing that would seem like the British royals are somewhat infringing on the workings of Canadian charities and too far away to really be "hands on" with it and know the working mechanics of the charity.

What I think would work even better is doing perhaps something along the lines of what William is doing with his United for Wildlife program. An umbrella for many different organizations from around the globe. Under the umbrella of a main organization focused on, for example, mental health, they could get a global organization going with each member its own entity but united for a common cause. That way Canadian charities would have a solid connection to The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry but yet remain their own independent entity.

We have been seeing more and more of the "umbrella" type efforts springing up with United for Wildlife and the Invictus games as examples and I do think that global efforts will become more and more common as the years pass.

But then again... what do I know?

The Prince of Wales has "The Princes Charities, Canada" and 50% of the Government $100,000 went to that charity. William and Catherine met with the Princes Charities whilst on tour.

Maybe that would be an organization that the Cambridges and Harry will step into once Charles becomes King? Its plausible.

I can't see anything like that happening until (whenever) - and even then - they become full time working royals.

While I applaud their focus (along with Harry) on mental health issues especially with young people, it's not exactly a full time commitment is it? A couple of engagements a few times a year is as much as they have aspired to so far.

The recent visit of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Canada has coincided with a huge surge in hotel bookings over the past week in comparison to the same period in 2015. Hotels.com say searches for Canada have jumped by 60% following the arrival of the English Royals to the Maple Leaf shores

...Vancouver has reported a 50% rise in hotel searches as the Royals headed in the city’s direction. According to Hotels.com, among the top-named hotels it handpicked for those who want to live like a royal for a few days, were the Fairmount Royal York in Toronto and the Omni Mont-Royal in Montreal.

Kate sent the girl a thank you letter. Very nice story.

Quote:
Seeing the Duchess of Cambridge up close would be an unforgettable experience for any fan – but for Canadian youngster Madelyne Honcharuk, that first glimpse was just the start of the royal encounter of a lifetime.

The 10-year-old Vancouver resident and her mother, Heather Mackenzie, headed to Jack Poole Plaza on Sept. 25 during the Cambridges' royal tour of Canada, hoping to present Kate with a bouquet – and were amazed when she picked Madelyne out of the crowd. "I probably will remember that whole day for the rest of my life," the fifth grader says.
