Five-year-old girl who dressed as Duchess of Cambridge receives letter from Kate | Royal | News | Daily Express
Quote:
AFTER playing princess by dressing up as the Duchess of Cambridge during her school play, five-year-old Scarlett Gillis enjoyed a royal surprise by receiving a letter from the future queen herself.

The young schoolgirl was chosen to re-enact royal occasions as Kate alongside her leading man, Joshua Rogers, also five, who played Prince William.

Scarlett, a pupil at St Bede's College Prep School in Whalley Range, Machester, loved playing the Duchess so much she decided to pen a letter to the royal.

She told Kate about starring in the school's 'A Tale of Two Birthdays' play and how she loved dressing just like her.

Kate, who is currently pregnant with her second child, was also treated to a photo of the young princess, so she could see exactly what Scarlett looked like.

I think with helpful advice from her doctors, Catherine is doing what she's comfortable with before she gives birth. She's enjoying carrying out her official engagements.

I think you are taking this article too literally. I believe this is what my British friends would call "taking the pi**"

Goodness me she is now doing too much. She wasn't doing enough a month ago.

The Duchess of Cambridge was seen shopping in Norfolk today. She shopped at @TheRangeUK, a home and garden shop.

A lot of shopping sightings the last few weeks Mary91 charmed.

Did you see the Duchess had been spotted buying her Easter eggs at the Conran shop a little while back?

I wonder how many people get told they look like Kate from behind? They would be look-behind-alikes?
If not her,it's someone who dresses as she does.

Looks like the coat Catherine wore when she arrived in New York so I'd move it up to probable from possible

I don't doubt that she was spotted shopping, but this particular photo looks like it might be an older one - from maybe before or possibly earlier in the pregnancy. The coat seems way too small in the waist for it to be something taken recently.

I remember this has happened before. Older photos being passed off as something taken recently.

Sorry if this has been posted before, and I missed it -

Husband and I sat down and watched the Royal Variety Performance that was broadcast here in Oz on Good Friday, and one of the comedians had been at school with the Duchess.

Catherine's long jump record from her school days hasn't been broken yet and still stands at the school.

(The comedian worked a routine around it.)

Admirer: I had the same thought... I wasn't sure that was her, but there is not only the coat, bur her boots and style plus color of hair...

Cepe: I think this photo may be older... She seems to have a thin waist from behind...

Makes me think that all systems are go and they're ready to head to the Lindo wing as soon as the time comes. What better place for George to be than to hang out with Grandma and Grandpa while Mummy and Daddy go to the hospital to get the new baby. William may still be in East Anglia doing what he's supposed to be doing and can be back in London as soon as the alarm is raised that he's needed.

It's being reported that the Duchess of Cambridge has written to the local Sandringham Estate branch of the WI, expressing interest in becoming a member.

(They wrote to her prior to Christmas inviting her to join them.)

There are currently fourteen members and they meet one evening a month in a hall ten minutes walk from Anmer.

The Queen attends one meeting a year, and the Duchess of Cornwall is also a membe of the WI, along with the Countess of Wessex.

The Princess Royal is an associate member, and the Queen Mother used to be the President of the Sandringham branch.

Once a year this branch has an evening garden party at the home of a member - I bet they would love it to be held at Anmer Hall.

The WI generally is trying to attract younger members, so it may be a good help if the Duchess does indeed join.

(Australia has a similar thing, the CWA - "Country Women's Association".)

What is wrong with Kate being a stay-at-home mother??? She has 2 small children. Diana did not have much choice, she was the Princess of Wales and was married to a man who wanted to stay constantly active. But Kate is married to a man who has a private job in addition to royal duties. I do not see the firm wanting Kate doing royal appearances 24/7 while William is off flying air ambulances. Also what is this about $1M from Duchy of Cornwall??

Just complete rubbish cooked up to fill column inches on a slow news day.

I am sure the press would love Catherine to have a full-time role. It is clear that is not happening in the short term, and she remains focussed, as she should IMO, on her children. It is the lack of stories on the Cambridge's that may lead to the press turning on them.
