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.

Emily Nash ‏@emynash
The Duke of Edinburgh has passed his patronage of RAF Air Cadets to the #DuchessofCambridge during an audience at Buckingham Palace today..

Emily Nash ‏@emynash
Kate becomes Honorary Air Commandant of the Air Cadet Organisation, comprising 42,000 air cadets and 15,000 adult volunteers at 1,200+ units

Emily Nash ‏@emynash
This is #Kate's first role with an official link to the military, but she has close links to the RAF given William's Search and Rescue role.

RAF Air Cadets ‏@aircadets
HRH The Duke of Edinburgh has handed over Air Cadet patronage to HRH Duchess of Cambridge after 63 years as Honorary Air Commodore-in-Chief

Is this an official link to the military? Cadets no longer all go into the military from everything I've been able to learn.
How is this different from other military schools - can someone explain. Because I do want to know.

I wonder if it's like ROTC here in the U.S.

I'm so glad to see that Kate is taking over this patronage.

I expect we'll see a few more charities and patronages added in the new year.

The Duchess of Cambridge has become patron of the RAF Air Cadets - taking over from the Duke of Edinburgh, who has held the position for 63 years.

Her appointment as Honorary Air Commodore-in-Chief is her first military-linked role.

She will represent 42,000 air cadets aged 12-19 and 15,000 adult volunteers.

Thanking the 94-year-old duke, Air Commodore Dawn McCafferty said he was "admired and respected by cadets and volunteers alike" and would be missed.

The Duchess of Cambridge is already patron of a number of youth and mental health charities, and is a trained scout volunteer.

The Duke of Edinburgh took up his appointment with the air cadets following the death of founding patron King George VI.

I was thinking the same thing earlier. Here is a link to an article about Carol Vorderman becoming an honorary ambassador for the cadets and she wore a uniform:
