I think Catherine is doing a fine job with her charities and helping them highlight their work and goals. I know some people who has suffered from addiction and it can really devastate a family.

Victoria Murphy ‏@QueenVicMirror 4m
Kate was given a book called "What do Princesses do" and she read out some extracts

Victoria Murphy ‏@QueenVicMirror 4m
Kate read from the book: "Eat bananas? Yes I certainly do that. Dancing, yes that too. Eat sweets. Yes I like all those!"

Papers don't like anyone, they use celebrities, royalty and even joe public to make money. People click on the story because the headline is attention grabbing or for the pictures, and then they read the story. This is an online edition, so they have to do something to up their game. Simple fact is Catherine wore a £1,065 dress to a Manchester school. I don't see any problem in pointing something out that is a fact.

As for her "bump", Catherine isn't showing and she's in her 6 month, people notice and for newspaper's it's another chance to run a "compare" story. I know someone who's 3 weeks away from giving birth and they looks about 4 months gone. Catherine can carry off pregnancy well.

I don't see the point in reporting how much her dress and wardrobe cost but to encourage people to criticize her. I don't see journalist writing about the cost of Crown Princess Mary, Victoria, Maxima or whoever when they are out and about on official engagements. Back in the 80's the palace used to release details about Diana's wardrobe to the media when she did official engagements and Prince Charles stopped the palace from doing that. I don't think the focus should be on the price of her wardrobe. Of course her look will be discussed but mentioning the price is a bit much, IMO.

I too think Catherine carries her pregnancy very well. I don't know much about pregnancies but I do know that every woman's bumps are different and I don't think it's fair to compare her bump to other women's bump.

Kate can never win. She criticized for recycling outfits. She criticized for buying herself a new outfit.

I wonder what the DM would consider appropriate wear to a "poverty stricken" council estate in Manchester.

I see no problem discussing price, since any of us could go online and buy one for ourselves. It's moot.

Because she buys off the peg, the price is there for all to see. Spending £1000 on a silk dress by a known designer is ok in my book BUT its leading with the price followed by "poverty-stricken" that shows this paper is being deliberately negative at an event where she has been the catalyst for getting agencies together to help.

The issue regarding CPs round Europe is that the majority of what they wear are not off the peg. So price is unknown.

Back to the event - think it was a great event. And I really like Henry.

Thank you Dman for the video of her speech.

I liked the dress as I believe she looks her best in these deeper colors. It looks comfortable for woman at the beginning of her third trimester. As for the DM or any other publications' musings on her "bump" the only true opinion that counts is that of her ob/gyn. If she's gaining weight at a healthy rate and her abdominal measurements are within the expected range then her doctor will likely be pleased.

Kate appears to have good interaction when meeting with people. However IMO she needs to have her hair out of the way when she gives speeches. The hair flipping is distracting.

I agree. She keeps shaking her head at the end of each sentence (or less) to pull it back. That's not good.

But in overall it was her best speech so far

Quite a good speech by Kate in Manchester. It gave a real insight into her thinking about addiction being the root of all evil in the UK.

Tomorow's event is in the evening, so we will not get pictures that soon.
But I'm excited as well, its a Art Room at the National Portrait Gallery, I'm expecting some elegant outfit and hopefully an up-do, to look glamorous

I think she'll give a speech for tomorow as well, since she's a patron.

Oh my, Ghost Night. I hope you are feeling better. Well of course you are otherwise you would still be in the hospital. I hope you continue to heal.

Oh, come on. Does the DM title articles with "The Queen wears £100k+ (as a very conservative estimate) diamond brooch on visit to council estate"? Or, "Prince Charles wears £3,000 Lobb shoes on visit to poverty-stricken Liverpool community centre"? Or, "Prince Harry wears £2,500 Turnbull & Asser suit to favela"?

No, they don't. This is one of two pretty nasty articles on Kate on the DM today. When journalists from other media outlets are publicly raising their eyebrows at the tone of these articles, it's clear what the DM is up to. Thankfully, most of the commenters on the DM seem able to see through it on this occasion at least.

I noticed how quickly the Daily Mail headline changed. The dress is not mentioned
