That's really exiting news.
Kate should be proud that her role with the charity might have helped raise its profile - and the donations.

Yes, Kate is certainly a major draw as patron of her charities. Nice to see these results.

This is wonderful news indeed. Shows that Catherine's patronage is really making a difference.

I liked the comment in the first article that Catherine's presence changed the attitude of those people the charity is aimed at. That they are now looking actively for support, that she reached them and now help can be offered. That's an important aspect of Catherine's media work, not only collecting mopney but make people aware. Thos who can help but those who could need this help as well.

I really enjoyed reading the first article. I'm so glad to see that this particular organization is enjoying some great benefits thanks to Catherine's visit and patronage. Just shows that sometimes something that some may see as small and insignificant can make the biggest difference.

A very touching and very supportive letter from HRH for EACH. I bet they are happy that their Royal Patron is helping highlight their worthy cause.

Agreed! Indeed she does, and that is putting it very mildly!
She and Robert Hardy need to do a hospice visit together!

Yes, she visits the hospice once a year, a heart of gold indeed!

To be accurate, there has been one publicised visit. She was obviously in contact with all of her charities prior to the publicised visits. I would assume meetings with the chief officer and team privately. Otherwise how could she take up the patronages?

She can't be there on a regular basis publically and, frankly, it would be incredibly disruptive is she was. The same applies to other royals visiting their organisations (be it milatry, charity or other). Formal visits do take a lot of organisation and there should be a reason for it, rather than just turning up. Those latter types of visit are normally done privately.

Public visits do a lot of good. Of course, there are pros and cons. I get the feeling she has made a private visit recently....

Yes, Catherine is in constant contact with her charities and with the officials of the charities. The Duchess held a B&BQ for one of charities at her parents home in Berkshire. She attend engagements that will help benefit her charities and the officials of her charities attend The Royal Forums that's held twice a year.

If they ever do a collaborative visit, it'll be extremely special and magical. The children won't know what hit them.

We should also take into account that Kate's choosing to wear one of EACH's bracelets led to their selling thousands of them, all over the world, earning the organisation much-needed funds.

Oh, and then there's the fact that, with Kate's becoming involved in the 100 Women in Hedge Funds charity (via William), two of her patronages will each be the beneficiary of 100WHF's philanthropy for a whole year (Action on Addiction in 2013 and The Art Room in 2015). Would this have happened if they'd not had Kate as a patron? Of course not.

I had the exact same reaction about the little one in the photo!
Agree about Catherine too!
