It's very important to listen and learn and Catherine is doing just that. I think what Richard is saying, that it would be nice to hear her voicing her passion and concerns for her charities and other organizations that's close to her heart. I happen to agree with him.

She delivered her message very well and I hope her voice continue to raise awareness for Children's Mental Health. The more she voice her concerns, the more awareness she can bring to great causes like this.

She needs to actually get a voice coach, and have some public speaking lessons as she is so stilted it is excruciating trying to listen to her.


I would grade that speech a low C if marking a Year 8, high C from a Year 7 and an F from anyone from Year 9 upwards (Year 9 here are around 14 - 15 year olds).


Good cause.
I usually just read, but felt I needed to comment on this. The Duchess of Cambridge isn't in school and it's beyond ridiculous to grade as if she is. She is making a public appeal about an issue that she feels strongly about and which she felt needed a direct approach rather than just showing up and smiling for the cameras. Her speech was excellent and her delivery was flawless IMO. William, who has been in the public spotlight his entire life couldn't have done much better. It just goes to show that certain people will never give her any credit no matter what she does. I don't get it.

Can't get too upset about it. Catherine will never be able to fully satisfy everyone. Her direct approach is much better, I think. I just hope she continue to do things like this, because I think her voice should be heard more.

Good cause.

I disagree with this entire post except the last statement about it being a good cause.

I thought that she delivered the message clearly and concisely without hesitation, which is always a problem when using autocue (I'm assuming that's what she was doing). Great eye contact directly to the camera.

She has also worked at improvement as comparison with the hospice video, done 2013, shows.

She is gaining in confidence all the time and it shows.

I've coached people on public speaking. She's doing great.

I agree. You can detect nervousness, but to me it just makes her seem human and not robotic. It also wouldn't be her to talk over passionately and such. She is a calm woman and it would just seem forced/condescending if she sounded to enthusiastic.

I think Catherine does just fine when speaking publicly, and especially when connecting with people. She's bringing light to a very important cause, and it's obvious she cares about it quite deeply. I think her passion will come across through her actions, which is so much more important.

I thought that her delivery in this public service announcement was very good. She sounded serious and natural.

The important thing is she did it. Good for her.
The more she does the better she will become

Agreed! That, and the fact that she stayed 3 hours, and that mother's tweet tells me all I need to know. She cares. Who cares about a speech?

What is in the message, and who says it. Very true, Osipi!

I agree, Catherine's message is reaching a great deal of people and that's the most important thing. Catherine can use her passion and voice to do some amazing things. I hope she continue to voice her concerns more often now.

This is a great cause and I'm glad that Kate is involved and bringing more attention to it.

I think her delivery is fine. When I look back at her other video speeches, I can really see how much she has improved.

Although a large percentage of her fan base comes mostly from interest in fashion and what she wears, it still serves as a springboard to getting her message out to the general population the more serious aspects that Kate is trying to call attention to. Its a win win situation in my book.
