these very well may be the types of engagements she has been doing all along 'behind the scenes' and because of the recent criticism of her lack of activities, they are now being announced the day of in the court circular; not photo ops but part of her job.

nice job from the KP press office.

Which is for the best. People should know about the work Catherine is doing behind the scenes. Information about her charitable meetings, lunches and outings should be known and accounted for in the CC.

The royals do so much behind the scenes, but when it's not highlighted and reported on, it causes the media and others to question what the royals do when they're not on public duties. Then you end up reading those "lazy" headlines. I think in-depth royal documentaries and specials helps in this department.

Exactly. That's so true.

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 woman has a smile and laugh that lights up the room. It's kept me smiling for days. I'm sure Wednesday will be the same. Will take all I can get. Can never have enough.

Pretty much. What I really like is the fact that Catherine always gives off the vibe that she wants to be at whatever engagement she's doing. She's smiling, engaging with those around her, and listening with her heart.

It looks like we have more child mental health and addiction related engagements for the Duchess.
@KensingtonRoyal: We look forward to* rest of The Duchess's Autumn programme, focusing on early intervention, mental health, and addiction.
