Sir Ben mentions both W&K but because Catherine is Patron of 1851 Trust I'll post here.

Quote:
Four-time Olympic champion Sir Ben Ainslie has spoken of his desire to get the country behind his ambition to bring the America’s Cup to Britain.

The 38-year-old former Truro School pupil said that gaining the support of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for his Land Rover BAR team was a boost to the plan to broaden the appeal of sailing.

His comments come as Land Rover BAR announced a £47 million boost for the UK economy created by the 2015 Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series (ACWS) held in Portsmouth this July, with a greater boost expected for the second event next summer.

He said the creation of the 1851 Trust, which both he and the Duchess of Cambridge are patrons of, and the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation, which encourage youngsters to get involved in sailing, were a major part of the planned legacy from the America’s Cup bid.

The Duchess of Cambridge has called for more to be done to tackle mental health issues in children which could follow them into later life.

In a speech, Kate told a headteacher's conference in London she knew that she was "lucky" to have had a "wonderful and secure childhood".

"I always knew I was loved, valued and listened to. But, of course, many children aren't so lucky," she said.

"Since beginning my work in areas like addiction, I have seen time and time again that the roots of poor mental health in adulthood are almost always present in unresolved childhood challenges."

The Duchess of Cambridge told of her "wonderful and secure childhood" as she spoke to headteachers about children's mental health.

Kate said it was the "duty" of parents and teachers to provide young people with safe and happy homes because not all children are as fortunate as her in their early lives.

Speaking at the Place2Be charity's conference for headteachers, she said: "I know that I was lucky. My parents and teachers provided me with a wonderful and secure childhood.

"But not all children are so lucky. Many children, even from stable and happy homes, are finding that their heads are too full."

I like how the young lady in the receiving line at (00:37) gave Catherine a slight curtsy as the Duchess passed by. It's pretty much an old school move these days.

That was a really good speech. Kate seems to be finding her voice and I thought her words were really heartfelt. My only complaint was that her hair was a bit distracting. A hair clip or something would have helped so much. Having said that, I really think she's improved quite a bit from her first speeches and look forward to her future ones.

The content of the speech was excellent IMO. I liked the way she drew on her childhood, linked mental health issues with other problems such as addiction and drew on the title of the conference. Well balanced and well delivered.

She has gained in confidence and that can be heard in her voice and the flow of the speech.

These are nerve-wracking events, even for experienced speakers. Good progress and hopefully we will hear more from her.

I agree fully with this. The speech itself was good, her speaking was improved and more confident. If only not for that little strand of hair that had made it it's mission to poke her eyes! Hopefully she fixes that in the future. But I think she even handled that well today, not showing any nervous giggles or something and just stroke it away.

Kate makes pledge to help children with mental health issues in biggest speech as a royal-
Kate Middleton pledges to help children with mental health issues | Royal | News | Daily Express

"Aides said her address was "very much her own" and one of several speeches she is expected to make in the coming months. They also insisted it should not be seen as a comment on claims she was bullied at prep school.

A nervous speaker in her first few attempts since she joined the Royal Family in April 2011, Kate has shown a new confidence in public speaking in her last two engagements."

I pay attention to the content of the speech and the emotion with which it is delivered and Catherine didn't disappoint with either. She spoke from the heart and drew on her own childhood experience. She smears sad someone who is more than willing to fight for the children who are most vulnerable and are at risk for developing serious issues later in life if their childhood struggles with mental illness are not dealt with. As someone who grew up with depression, I know first hand what it's like to have my feelings dismissed just because I was a child. According to my relatives children weren't supposed to have problems and whatever problems they thought they had weren't important. It would have been such a blessing to have someone like Catherine speaking up for me. I'm so happy to know that other children with similar pain will not be ignore or pushed aside just because they're children and Catherine is making sure that such things don't occur by raising awareness. Good for her.
