The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, will make an official visit to Dundee in late October as part of their autumn tour.

Details of that visit are still under wraps but a royal spokesman said it would be one of the “highlights” of the couple’s programme.

Dundee has been honoured with the responsibility of hosting national commemorations as Britain marks 100 years since the Battle of Loos.

Hundreds of the city’s young men sacrificed their lives in the fields of northern France in one of the bloodiest conflicts of the First World War.

So, there is to be an Autumn Tour by the Cambridges? Has anyone seen an announcement about this, or is this just hyperbole?

There was a operational note sent out to the correspondents that they published the information. The trip to Dundee was mentioned plus a trip to North Wales. They aren't doing an overseas tour in the fall. These visits are going to be similar to when they went to Glasgow for two days. Multiple engagements in around a city.

CHILDREN at a North Bersted pre-school were delighted to receive a royal reply after they made a card for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Dizzy Ducklings Pre-School, based at North Bersted Community Centre, in Lakeland Avenue, had sent a beautiful handmade card to congratulate the royal couple on the birth of Princess Charlotte.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge replied two weeks ago with a picture card thanking the children for the card and sending their warmest thanks and best wishes.

Does it mean they will release some photos of the children? Or will it be a private reception with no pics at all? IIRC, they did the same aftersome months that George was born too...

They had a media meet and greet at KP before the Aus NZ tour and brought baby George. They also did these informal press meetings on the S Pacific and Canadian tours.

It's all off the record so don't expect pictures from tonight

The only info we got from the press meet and greet with baby George was Emily Nash described his outfit and hair color. She also said he drooled all over the place. There was no pictures.

That sounds like an important step in rebuilding a decent relationship with the press. Maybe some of the passive aggressive negative stories will stop.

Why? The meeting is private, no pictures, I get that. But can't we at least know in a general way what it was about? Maybe I don't get it...

Maybe because he enjoys attention and Mr Palmer wants everyone to beg him to spill the details so he can feel full of self-importance?

Oh Richard!.... referencing the 5th amendment to the US Constitution! Could be worse though, he could be drinking the fifth.

But seriously folks, it might be best if the journalists all keep things to themselves as far as this meet and greet goes if that is what they are asked by the Cambridges to do. I think its kind of nice that the Cambridges have taken the time to arrange something like this while they're in London.

Did you guys see the conversation between Tanna and Richard ??

Niraj Tanna ‏@IkonPictures
@royalreporter They won! KP eventually gagged you Ricardo.

Richard Palmer ‏@RoyalReporter
@IkonPictures Not at all!

Niraj Tanna ‏@IkonPictures
@royalreporter Spill the beans old boy.

Richard Palmer ‏@RoyalReporter
@IkonPictures I'd have to kill you if I did.

Niraj Tanna ‏@IkonPictures
@royalreporter William would be happy. He'd probably give you Migs job!

KP is a trio, not just W&K but Harry and these media 'meet and greets' have happened before.

As other posters have pointed out its just Richard being his attention seeking self. No other reporter continually goes on like this.

Swimming instructor Benjamin Roberts has had the Royal seal of approval for his book after sending a copy to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to celebrate Prince George’s second birthday.

Teacher Ben, who works at St Cenydd Comprehensive School in Caerphilly, wrote Learn To Swim, which contains his expert tips on teaching children how to swim confidently.

As his son Oscar is the same age as Prince George; Ben, who is originally from Ton Pentre but now lives in Llanharry, thought it would make a nice birthday gift to the future King.

One of my favorite royal-watcher moments was when The Huffington Post wrote an article about one of Palmer's Twitter meltdowns/attention-seeking ploys. After he read the article, his Twitter page was proverbially foaming at the mouth.

He can dish it but he can't take it.
