Gosh it might have been embarassing to have cameras on their faces and everyone watching you... Especially Kate, looks very unconfortable...

A somber Prince William and Kate pay tribute to victims at the 9/11 Memorial in New York City as they brave the gloomy weather | Daily Mail Online

The Duchess of Cambridge provided a splash of color as she and Prince William visited the rainswept 9/11 Memorial in Manhattan Tuesday morning.

Dressed in a shocking pink Mulberry coat, pregnant Kate and her husband braved pouring rain and sub zero temperatures to make the emotional pilgrimage.

The two shielded themselves from the rain with umbrellas from their hotel, The Carlyle.

The royal couple took a moment to lay red roses at the Memorial as well, the flowers which are a symbol of New York City.

The 9/11 Memorial is located at the site of the former World Trade Center complex, occupying half of the 16-acre site.

It features two enormous waterfalls and reflecting pools, each about an acre in size, set within the footprints of the original Twin Towers.
More than 400 trees surround the reflecting pools.

Its design conveys a spirit of hope and renewal out of enormous tragedy and creates a contemplative space separate from the usual sights and sounds of the bustling city.

The American Media is finally catching on. I have not heard ABC, NBC or CBS refer to Catherine as Kate Middleton or Princess Kate. They are finally say Duchess of Cambridge

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have attended a reception co-hosted by former US secretary of state Hilary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea from the Clinton Foundation and William on behalf of his Royal Foundation. The event was held in aid of the wildlife conservation charity Tusk Trust, of which William is patron, and the organisations who are partners in United for Wildlife, while the Clinton Foundation is working with other groups to tackle wildlife trafficking-

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.
Cameras don't lie. Looking through all the pictures of the article that you've posted, to me, it seems as if both William and Kate are really enjoying the places they're going and the people they're meeting with. Whether it be high ranking government officials or celebrated people or the children in Harlem or whomever, they have a genuine interaction with them that, to me, shows they're there because they want to be and not because they have to be. They both have a natural flair for allowing themselves to enjoy the moment they are in regardless if its something they hold a personal interest in or doing something they would probably not have on their top 10 list of things they want to do.

As far as the protection officers and staff with them, I don't think they're bored or non plussed or anything other than remaining focused on what they're there to do. In a crowd that size, their charges are thier first and foremost concern. They probably would act much differently if they attended the same event on their own personal time.

Live long and prosper: Kate and William mingle with Sir Patrick Stewart and members of the fashion pack at luncheon celebrating British creativity | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge flew the flag for the UK today at an event to celebrate British creativity.

William and Kate were attending a GREAT reception at NeueHouse, a creative work space in Gramercy, Manhattan, for media types.

Wearing a black dress by maternity label Seraphine with a gold hooped Cartier necklace and her hair swept back in a funky pony tail, Kate chatted with guests including actor Sir Patrick Stewart.

The list featured a host of representatives from the creative industries including Glenda Bailey, editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar, Amanda berry, chief executive of Bafta, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, media mogul Harvey Weinstein, and his Marchesa designer wife Georgina Chapman, and author Imogen Lloyd-Webber, daughter of the musicals composer Lord Lloyd-Webber.

As they mingled, the throng dined on British themed canapes including mini Yorkshire puddings and Scotch egg bites washed down with PG Tips tea and Old Speckled Hen ale.

Sir Patrick, accompanied by his wife, Sunny Ozell, said afterwards: 'I have met many members of the Royal family before but what a personable, pleasant and, may I say, attractive couple.

'Prince William told me he had never been to New York before which, I must say, surprised me greatly. I was even more surprised that the Duchess hasn't been. I urged them to come back again incognito. New York is the type of city that turns a blind eye and would allow you to do that. '

Sir Patrick said he had recently taken William's cousin, Princess Eugenie, who is currently working in New York, as his guest to his latest show on Broadway, Waiting for Godot.

I'm not surprised that Sir Patrick Stewart and his wife found the Cambridges to be "engaging".

Kate saves the best for last! Pregnant Duchess dazzles in black gown as royal couple attend glitzy Manhattan fundraiser for university where they fell in love* | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
They met there. And later fell in love.

And tonight, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a glittery gala to raise money for their alma mater: St Andrews University in Scotland.

Prince William and his wife Kate - who both earned degrees there - were among 450 guests at the dinner at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Donning a midnight blue Jenny Packham evening gown and with her hair swept up in an elegant chignon, the pregnant Duchess beamed as she was met on the museum's steps by an honor guard of fellow St Andrews alumni dressed in the university's traditional red gowns and officials wearing kilts.

Disappointingly, perhaps, for fashion watchers, Kate has worn the stunning dress twice before in public. But with her handsome dinner suited-husband at her side, the effect was still suitably regal and the most formal outfit she had sported during their three-day visit to America.

The couple were then escorted to a reception in the museum's Great Hall, before they were expected to join guests for dinner in the Temple of Dendur, which was built in Egypt around 15 BC in dedication of the gods Isis and Osiris. The sandstone temple was given to the U.S. in its entirety in 1965.

Although actor Tom Hanks - whose daughter went to St. Andrews - was due to the after-dinner toast at the black-tie event, he was forced to pull out. But actress Mary-Kate Olsen will be there with her boyfriend, Olivier Sarkozy, a French banker whose brother is Nicholas Sarkozy, ex-President of France.

First- As always, wonderful to see William and Kate with children.
And Jane Seymour was at the event? That's almost as good as Robert Hardy. Almost. It will happen- hopefully sonner rather than later. RH and Kate at a hospice event... No words.
Second-
Prince William in a tux +
Kate looking gorgeous, and rockin the bling= life is good!
Seriously, what more could a girl ask for/ want?

Has the coverage of the LeBron James "breach of etiquette" bothered anyone else? I don't like how a warm, demonstrative, genuine gesture was turned into something somewhat scandalous. I have the utmost respect and admiration for the duke and duchess, but I think the whole untouchable thing is a little over the top. I don't like when etiquette is used as some sort of weapon to create offense when none was intended. I guess it's just the egalitarian American in me.
