I'm really looking forward to this engagement. I have no doubt that Catherine will do wonderfully when it comes to her speech. She lights up a room, and children seem to flock to her. This place is probably the best option for getting her feet wet when it comes to public speaking. I'm guessing the atmosphere will be relatively informal. I hope she knocks their socks off .

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.

There is a lot of excitement in Ipswich today :) Gutted I can't make it down there to see Catherine today as I am only a couple of miles away :(

It is great she is visiting though and providing EACH with the publicity it deserves. A fantastic cause and they have worked so hard to raise the money to build this treehouse hospice

Very good choice, we call it Ipswich blue in this part of the country :) She must have a football fan advising her!

Royal Blue is the colour of our local sports teams. In fact the Duke of Cambridge was oncr spotted wearing a Ipswich Town football shirt when playing in a game when he was at university.

It may just be a coincidence but it does come across like a extra bit of effort has been made for the town.

What if she'd turned up in Norwich green and yellow? She'd have been chased out of town!

You shouldn't joke about things like that, especially when they are above us in the league :p

Seriously though it is little touches like that which do make a event that extra special for us. No one else will probably pick up on that but blue is a colour very close to the hearts of many Ipswich residents

And the first picture: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, arrives to open a children's hospice in Ipswich, eastern England March 19, 2012.
She looks lovely.

I think a lot of royals actually do make that extra bit of effort during official engagements, wearing colours or brooches or other accessories that are associated with that particular region/country/city. Before most official engagements, royals are briefed about the places they are about to visit and people they will meet. Accordingly, they make decisions that will, in some way, honour those. A nice touch, and I agree that small things like that make a visit all the more special. Very thoughtful on part of Kate and her advisers.

Calm and collected Kate arrives to give speech

The Duchess of Cambridge has arrived to give her first ever public speech. Kate looked calm and collected as she arrived at the Treehouse Hospice in Ipswich, wearing a purple dress by Reiss from Autumn/Winter 2008. Excited schoolchildren waved Union flags as the 30-year-old royal chatted to officials outside the new facility.

Something borrowed, something blue: Duchess of Cambridge wears mother's Reiss dress for first public address as Royal patron of children's hospices charity

The Duchess of Cambridge looked calm and confident as she prepared to give her first public address today. Kate, 30, arrived at The Treehouse children's hospice in Ipswich, Suffolk, wearing a deep blue dress from High Street store Reiss clasped at the waist by a thick black belt for a tour of the new £3 million facility which cares for seriously and terminally ill children.

On Sky News they've called that a 'flawless' delivery. Very careful, she's obviously spent a lot of time practicing. I think she did really well.

One thing though. Kate's accent is posher than William's.

That's what I thought too. The accent was a bit... weird.
Very nice delivery though.

As Pippa doesn't sound that posh, I wonder where Catherine got the accent from?

I think too she did really really well. and she wrote her speech herself ! I like that she choose not the speeck to be written by somebody else and I really like what she said. very personal and warm. A little slow but it's her first so she just need a litlle practice. and unlike william when he began to talk a few speech, I absolutly understood everything she said.

She sounded as if she had rehearsed it with a speech trainer and those people tend to be very client-orientated when it comes to the "social" level of a way to talk. So I guess her coach trained her that way, by purpose or unintentionally, to speak as "befitting a Royal Highness".

I didn't get the impression that her speech is overly posh on those rare times her voice could be heard and I guess it will become "normal" again very soon - the more contact with people from all social levels she has, the better. But maybe she watched too much of the Windsor's private family archive of video and films at home.....
