I think there are no photos because of the situation: they are children with mental issues and such. It would be inappropriate and unconfortable I think, for the children to have cameras on them....

Exactly. It would have been totally inappropriate. Maybe a simple photo taken by a parent, but nothing more than that!

Visits like that require a certain sensitiveness... Flashes and media would have been too much

There are no photos because it was a private engagement. Royal watchers should be used to this. Private meetings, briefings etc happen every day. Just take a look at the Court Circular. They usually take place inside their offices (like today) but can take place elsewhere.

It would help if KP didnt use the word "private"

I agree. Just using the words meeting, charity meeting etc would be better. And add that no pictures will be released. Instead of using the word private which prompts the "If it's private how come we know about it, they just want PR"-comments.

It really no different when they met with parents who lost their children or relatives of soldiers who died. It done without cameras and press present because of the sensitive nature.

I think it's very understandable that there may not be any pictures and videos of these unannounced visits, but at least her work behind the scenes are being highlighted (by KP/media) and being included in the Court Circular. People need to know what she's doing when she's not working on public engagements.

I think palace officials was finding it hard to do this.

The bump has grown and she looks tan- wow that is some hard hitting journalism there. 😛

Sir Ben 😘 Can we get him at all of Kate's engagements -a little eye candy on the side.

Kate seems to have got away without splashing paint on her coat. She said she was painting with baby George yesterday. He loves painting.

Six months pregnant Duchess of Cambridge wears elegant coat to show off her blossoming bump | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
She showed off her musical skills courtesy of a ukulele session at a London school on Tuesday and today, the Duchess of Cambridge was back on creative form as she turned her hand to painting.

Kate, who showed off a noticeably larger baby bump beneath her cream coat, was visiting the headquarters of Ben Ainslie Racing in Portsmouth as part of her work with the 1851 Trust, which encourages young people to get involved in sailing.

The Trust's new building is currently under construction and includes a mural wall painted by children drawn from six local schools - and now the Duchess of Cambridge to boot.

What about wearing something else than a light color in order to avoid any splashing!?

She isn't recreating a Jackson Pollock just a little bit on a sailboat. If she wore a dark colored coat, people would be complaining about that too.

Duchess of Cambridge arrives at Spinnaker Tower - Portsmouth News
Quote:
THE Duchess of Cambridge has arrived at the Spinnaker Tower for a reception.

Kate Middleton has been to see the Ben Ainslie Race base at the headquarters of the 1851 trust in the Camber Dock, Old Portsmouth.

People gathered at the Spinnaker Tower in their hundreds to see the Duchess arrive by police escort. She was welcomed by floral gifts and stopped to greet the crowds.

The Duchess and Sir Ben Ainslie will meet community leaders, and ambassadors including teachers and students from City College, Southampton, who are building two specialist ‘Docking Rib’ boats to help with docking the America’s Cup boats in Portsmouth.

Her Royal Highness will also see a display of activities and exhibits in the tower’s viewing platform, destined for display in the 1851 Trust Visitor Centre.
