Pregnant Kate arrives at Harlem children's center to wrap presents with disadvantaged children on her first solo engagement in New York City as William heads to the White House* | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
The Duchess of Cambridge was an English rose in Harlem today as she visited a childrens’ project on the first official engagement of her three-day trip to New York.

While her husband, Prince William, flew on a scheduled flight to Washington, D.C., where he is due to issue a keynote speech on the illegal wildlife trade and meet President Obama, Kate, who is around five months pregnant, is touring the Northside Center for Child Development with the First Lady of the City, writer and poet Chirlane McCray.

The Duchess was wearing a black and white trimmed Washington coat by British label Goat, costing £680 ($1,060), with black gloves, tights and high heels as she strode into the center, to be greeted by officials and the Mayor's wife herself.

Hopefully, the whole burned downed by the British won't be mentioned during the White House tour
Our respective countries were at War.. it was completely normal and expected behaviour under that circumstance. Do you imagine American troops wouldn't have torched and looted Buckingham Palace if they'd had half a chance ?

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge: Visit to the USA; December 7-9, 2014

It looks as if there's lots of enthusiasm in New York at the moment. Catherine defiantly does look fuller, and I can see her bump rather clearly in some angles.

I went to New York a few years ago now, and had an amazing time. I went around Christmas time as well. I found the people there to be very friendly and welcoming. Whilst I was there I also went on a boat tour around Manhattan to see sights like the Statue of Liberty. I picked up the vibe of the city there quite quickly and thought I fitted in well.

Methinks Piers Morgan tends to exaggerate things a bit. They do have mass appeal but the biggest stars of the world? That's stretching it a tad bit.

We had a similar experience in the summer of 2013. Little old ladies always took the time to ask us on the subway where we were going and advised us of the best routes to take. It's busy and would require much more time than we had allotted to see everything, but it was a wonderful experience.

They are!
I don't know where this POV comes from, that New Yorkers are rude and nasty.
(Or that the French are, for that matter).

I go to NYC all the time, and have never had the slightest problem with anyone! People go out of their way to be kind and helpful, imo.

(I had similar experiences in France; most people are very nice).

I forgot The Royal Variety Performance is on TV tonight, I just went from reading about W&K in the US and looked up at the TV to find them laughing their rear ends off at Jack Whitehall making jokes about being at school with Kate. William particularly was loving it. At least they can laugh at themselves.

I had the exact same experience that one time I was in NYC (hope to go back one day when it’s nice and warm). Some guy offered to take me along on his subway card so I could go to the next station. Not used to that kind of friendliness I just went and said no.. I sort of regret that now. That poor man really didn’t know what my problem was.

Maybe they could turn it into scavenger hunts with clues directing them to the next tree. Might also want to consider water stations placed in strategic spots as it would be quite a marathon eh?

Re Catherine attending Conservation REception - I think the right approach:

Build in rest times (just in case)
Include yourself into engagements late rather than cancel because you are tired/not well.

Good management of a "needs to be" flexible situation.
