From where I' sitting, she's always engaged, but even more so with children. They're drawn to her, and I have a feeling it's not just because she's a princess. Children can tell when people are being genuine, and from the beginning, Catherine has been nothing but that. Believe me, if she even gave off the slightest vibe of awkward, children would not be so willing to have her participate in their activities.

This is absolutely true. Those that met her have no reason to make up positive stories, if the truth is the opposite.

I agree on all other parts of your post.

For a while, some small part of me has had the nagging thought " Is Kate comfortable with people with disabilities? " I don't wonder after this.

Love the pics with the kids.
Oh, she definitely hit the ball way out of the ball park. Whenever I think that there's no way she can top something, she goes and does just that.

This has been a really nice snapshot of Kates personality and I find myself respecting her more and more.

She appears to have not only retained her pre-royal traits but harnessed them for good use.

It made me smile to see those pictures of her interacting and you can see that she forgets from time to time that she is being photographed.

I like her a lot and feel that she is a real asset to the royal family.

I even like her stance on private and professional life and even though Im like most people where I would love to see more of her private moments I totally respect the fact that Kate and Will for that matter keep a tight rein on that type of exposure.

There is afterall plenty of time for more access when he becomes King and I guess until then it will be professional profiles and the odd glimpse of family life.

You can tell that she cares, and like her husband, she'll be the voice for those of us that get lost in the crowd, because people don't want to take the time and open their hearts. I wish more people that work in the special education field would take a leaf out of her book.



You said it! And she's a natural at hand-over (or under)-hand assistance. As I've said for years, the woman would be a gift in a special ed classroom.

@ Daria - Last night is a good example of why the director at the center for developmentally delayed mentally handicapped children said - " I would hire her tomorrow!"

The best part of the video IMO is hearing from the parents and the Scouts themselves. Glad to see this 100+ organization is still teaching worthwhile skills to children around the world.

I was at a job interview today, and it was for a TA position in a special education preschool. There were so many kids who would benefit from working with someone like Catherine. The director is very hands-on, and kids love him. I can definitely picture Catherine in that environment.

It is a wonderful cause. Good luck on the job. It takes a special person to work with special needs children, but educators change the world.

Is it part of a public school district or a private institution? Good luck Daria.

No, it's not the school that Kate visited, though it would be an honor to work in an institution that regarded her so highly. It's a preschool in Brooklyn, ran by Hellen Keller Services for the Blind. I'm sure if you look that up, something about the school will pop up.

Thank you! I try my best to be what the children need, and cross my fingers that it works out in the end.

This is a special needs preschool that is ran out of an agency. The kids don't pay to go there, so it's not private. It operates on the NYC Department of Ed. calendar, and I think it's funded by the state. There's a name for that type of school, but I forgot what it is.
