You wouldn't have seen much of them if you watched the game. The ESPN shows bits of it live during a NBA coast to coast show where they shows bits of different games. Will and Kate were on the same side of the cameras so you could only pick them out by looking for Will's bald head. Twitter had better pictures of what they were doing during the game.

This First Lady of New York is a new thing. There has never been an official title or role for the wife of a mayor before as I can remember, kind of weird imo

She goes by a different last name than her husband the mayor so maybe they added the First Lady of NY so people would know who she is.

It's not a new thing. I remember the title being used while Rudy Giuliani was mayor. His then-wife was often referred to as the First Lady of NY.

Is this something she and her spouse have adopted or is it like with Catherine and the press just goes with whatever title/combination of name & title that strikes their fancy?
I saw one article today that identified Catherine as "Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge" which made me chuckle as that would be what she was called if she was divorced. Seriously though, these writers presumably graduated from college and should have learned how to take 2 seconds to fact check/research a simple thing like how to correctly identify someone - it's not rocket science.

I'm not sure how the title came about, but it has been used for years. There were articles calling Mayor Bloomberg's girlfriend the first lady of NY, and Donna Hanover (Rudy Giuliani's ex-wife), used the label when sending out invitations for some events she used to host.

Why say something so negative about something that some people are trying to something good about? If you don't like W/C then don't read the article and post a commnet....just saying.

The vast majority of trips by European royals to the US are essentially about nothing. They turn up, make no blip on anyone's radar, no-one pays any attention, they make a speech to some UN-affiliated body no-one outside that bubble's ever heard of, do a bit of shopping and go home. Benefit to anyone really? Negligible.

At least William, Kate and Harry know that it's different for them - where they go people pay attention. Not everyone, of course, but enough to make a trip in aid of bringing attention to some good causes worthwhile.

I am enjoying the pics and info of this trip. Wills is looking very confident these days! It is good to see him come into his own and start to embrace his place within the BRF 👏 On the other hand I am trying to understand why Kate is along on this trip? She is pregnant and has a child at home. I don't really see that she has contributed much to this trip except for the 'bump watch' factor/excitement she has that deer-in-the-headlights look about her. IMO she should have stayed home 😶

The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge will begin their final day of #RoyalVisitUSA by visiting the 9/11 Memorial. They fly home in the evening.

Her Royal Highness is on this trip to help raise money on behalf their charitable royal foundation of which she's royal patron. They've raised a great deal of money already.

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

Kate is a patron of the Royal Foundation too just like William and Harry. That who they were fundraising for on Sunday. Yesterday's events were part of a collaboration with the Clinton Foundation/RF and RF/NBA. Kate is also a graduate of St. Andrews so she be at tonight's dinner.

Kate's pregnancy isn't a problem and given that she went to the Clinton event when she wasn't scheduled means she is feeling pretty good. George is back in Buckleberry hanging out with Lupo and being watched by his grandparents and Nanny Maria. He probably hasn't even noticed his parents are gone for 3 days. Kate couldn't go to Malta or on the China/Japan trip so she wanted to go on this one and without her William alone would not get this much publicity.

No problem, just let your mind wander and daydream.
That's what I do when I have to attend an event that bores me.

Kate is probably use to it since William is an Aston Villa fan and probably makes her sit thru all their games on the TV 😉

As for the game photos, obviously there was a lot of grins and giggles. The DM photos capture it perfectly: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ball-game.html
If you notice, the Cambridge staff was seated behind W and C. For some reason, the guys were non plussed, but if you look closely, Rebecca is amused!
The pics of LeBron and Sabathia looking at cell phone photos is priceless.
And, OK, I am gonna say it. In the hair sweepstakes, Queen Bey has quite a rep, but that Middleton Mane took top honors, while JayZ may keep it short, but beats the prince handily.
