A Chair also has to know the subject of the meeting inside and out to keep the meeting going on an even keel. That not only takes skill, but also intelligence too.

Something tells me this hasn't so much to do w/the comments at the DM or other "papers", but a subtle way of the Palace answering back in it's own way regarding the mess that Hilary Martel's essay/comments produced IMO.

Subtle, but I'm afraid that might just go over some people's heads sadly. Still, it's a smart thing to do IMO and should have been happening sooner.

Yup- she's done good work with it too. I was particularly impressed by her setting up a partnership between EACH and Hospice Malaysia, which she visited on her tour last year.

Not only that, but also staying in touch w/those children who have really touched her heart. When little Diamond, the little sweetie fighting cancer who rushed into her arms at Calgary Intl Airport during the Cdn Tour, had been blessed w/a Christmas Miracle of finding out that Cancer was in Remission, TRH sent out a statement saying how happy they were w/the news.

Apparently, they've stayed in contact w/Diamond and her Family too. That's only one story of many over the last two years too. Very impressive of her IMO.

Catherine is making a difference in people's lives, and that's very, very admirable. I'm happy to hear that she chaired a meeting that concerned a charity she wanted to work with. I can't to see what she does next in terms of new patronages, and as always, her way with people (especially children) is extremely touching and sincere.

I'm glad, but I hope she will also promote the arts!
The RF has always been patrons of the museums, the ballet, the opera...I think Kate should take on more of such patronages.

I know she has the National Gallery, but I think that's the only one.

I for one hope that she'll support causes that are not really touched by royals. Yes, the arts are important, but so are children's hospices, addiction, and many other issues. She can have a few patronages that deal with arts or course, but it would be nice to see her supporting something different.

More than likely, knowing how great Catherine is when it comes to interacting with children.

I work with young children, and I can say that getting to spend time with a 'cool' grown-up that's of a relative or teacher is a real treat. The kids that will spend time with Catherine will be on cloud nine.
