Kate must indeed be very nervous and exited now; first public speech is a daunting prospect even if there is a small audience. But to have to speak knowing that so many camera lenses are directed against you - that must be even harder.
Hopefully, she will be able to overcome her nervousness.

I somehow feel she'll do fine with her usual poise and confidence.

I'd have to cancel. I hate public speaking and I only had to do it in front of a small class in college or on job interviews. I can only imagine how scared Kate is. But I recall when she stumbled a little when she was walking into the church on her wedding day and how she didn't let it put a crack in her poise and confidence.

Most people learn good speaking skills at university, with or without speech classes, especially if they major in fine arts or humanities. She'll do fine.

Naturally, if one is phobic about public speaking, it's different - but Kate seems fine. It's just the same as any other talking, really.

Learning public speaking in a classroom with a few dozen people isn't the same as being in front of the world media where every word and expression will be scrutinized and dissected.

Public speaking is a really difficult task. I've done it in front of 100's of people as well as small groups and it never gets any easier. Its about content and deliver of a message in way that is meaningful. Its also about not making a fool of yourself. But once its finished, then that's it.

The thought of giving a speech and it being seen by millions worldwide again, and again and again with every little hesitation debated would fill me with horror. ITs not like any other talking. I think she'll be fine but don't underestimate the task.

I hope and sure she will do well. Once she does, she would solidify herself as a someone worthy of being royal.

Looks like there has been a time change?

The Duchess will be arriving at The Treehouse at around 10:30am

-@EACH_hospices twitter

That would make it 3:30a.m.PST/6:30a.m.EST

No, it's not. I'm not sure that university can (ever) teach that. If she wasn't prepared for that, psychologically, then she wasn't prepared to get married to William. Is a person ever completely prepared for such scrutiny? Well, maybe not. But, fortunately, not every person dissects every word and expression - only some media (particularly in the U.K.) and one would probably do best to steer clear of poring over what is said about one.

I don't think anyone is ever completely prepared, not even people who do public speaking as a business/political career. My concern is that the media (and yes in the UK particularly) will make decisions on her suitability for this role on this one/first occasion. And they probably won't be the only ones.

And she does have my sympathy because as I've done public speaking but have been able to "calm down" by talking to my husband both before and after the event. And she doesn't have that right now.

Not a time change just when the actual event begins the actual speech won't take place till 11:30am UK time.

I've been told The duchess has been practicing her speech in front of family, friends and a mirror.

So basically I'll most likely be killed by my parents if they catch me awake at 3:30am tomorrow morning but that's ok it's a risk I'm willing to take cause I really won't be able to live with missing this appearance. So I'll prob go to bed and set my cell's alarm for 3:30am and sleep with the phone under my pillow so no one but me hears it when it goes off.

Thank you for the clarification ghost_night. That's why I phrased it as a question, because you are always spot on. And I for one thank you for it.

May I ask what time it will be for you for this event? I live in California and I don't know if I can be up at 3:30 in the morning!! Plus, I don't know about anyone else, but this speech thing is giving me hives. I am sooo nervous and I don't even know this woman, nor will I actually be the one speaking in public.

Your welcome! For me the event will be at 3:30am so seeing as your in Cali you and I are in the same time zone so the event will be at the same time for you as well. I too am so nervous for her but I'm sure she'll do great as always.
