Kate's plan for sailing success: The Duchess of Cambridge gets behind Britain's bid for America's Cup glory as she becomes patron of the 1851 Trust | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
She's long been a fan of sailing, famously beating husband Prince William during a race around Auckland Harbour during the Royal Tour Down Under.

Now Kensington Palace has announced that the Duchess of Cambridge has become royal patron of a new sailing charity, The 1851 Trust, which aims to help bring the America's Cup home.

In a statement released by the palace, the Duchess spoke of her love of sailing and said she hoped the trust would inspire a new generation to take up the sport.

In her patronage of the National Portrait Gallery, would Catherine be allowed to personally back a new artist by writing a letter of recommendation?
For example, she likes the style and use of color.
Can she write about her viewpoint or is this considered a negative?

I thought about this practically. She, has every right to write a letter of recommendation as a (as yet) private citizen. If she is technically, on the Board, she may be restrictected from actions that show favoritism, however.

But how I have always seen this done is very much word of mouth, buying of art, or behind the scenes maneuvering for sponsorship money for an artist for a show.

I think we are well into the days where money talks (even more than it ever did) in the modern art world. It's tangled, not much related to supply or demand and certainly not for the faint of heart. IMHO.

The NPG is about portraits so may not be as into trends as the rest of the art world. I would think the subject of the portrait may be more important than who painted.

AdmirerUS, Thank you for your insight!
If Catherine writes a letter as a private citizen, would some people object to this very action?
Would they declare, "She is no ordinary citizen. She is Her Royal Highness. She is the Duchess."?
Would they believe that there was favoritism?
