Princess Kate to take on @actnforchildren role. A good fit. Our story of when she visited them
Quote:
Princess Kate was “choked up” after hearing stories of young moms battling challenges ranging from severe illness to depression.

Kate, 33, was handed a tissue by one mother, who says her 13-year-old daughter is her main caretaker during bouts of severe illness.

The royal heard the story during a private meeting while visiting the Cape Hill Children’s Center in Smethwick, Birmingham, Wednesday. The center is run by Action for Children, a U.K. charity that supports vulnerable and neglected children.

Kate went around the table, making “eye-contact with all of us,” said one mom, and listened intently to their “heart-wrenching stories.

Catherine is quite handy with a rifle. From People Magazine

Quote:
“She’s a bit of a hot shot, I can let you know now! She beat the cadets,” Dawn McCafferty, Commandant of the RAF Air Cadets, tells PEOPLE.

Earlier, Kate joined younger cadets learning teamwork and communication drills. “When she joined in the jumping in and out of the ring she was game for a laugh,” says McCafferty. “I sense she has one of those personalities that people feel very relaxed with.

“Even though they’re quite young and possibly under confident, she got them all talking and smiling. That’s a real talent and makes everyone feel at ease.”

Says cadet Sophie Reeve, 14: “She was just an amazing person to be around — such an easy person to talk to.”

i can believe what the cadets said above - kate stikes me as an 'easy to talk to', comfortable to be around kind of person who doesn't take herself too seriously. good for her and nice to hear her guests and visits thought that too! it is a real talent to have, particularly for someone in her position.

If Kate can put people at ease when meeting royalty for the first time, that is a great asset IMO.

I agree. Catherine to me has always come across as down to earth and natural with the public. She is particularly good with children and other young people; I've noticed.

Well she is a 'regular' person ...she wasn't raised in a royal family....and even the BRF, it seems like William/Harry were exposed to a lot of 'normal' people/situations.

Of course she's a regular person, so being natural around the public will come more easily to her than other members of the BRF (although I think William and Harry are also very natural with the public). That's the very reason why I think she's down to earth. That's all.

She's a royal duchess, not many 'regular' people can make such a claim.

I think the point is she's able to connect with people and her charities value her contribution.

Its funny when Harry connects with people its deemed the greatest thing in the world but Catherine's empathy is dismissed

It's just a title...a title she was given when she married. It really isn't who she is at the core.

Myself I think she's done great with the public but as I said I'd be surprised if she wasn't considering how she was raised and what her personality appears to be like.

William and Harry are very much seeming to be at ease with the public despite their family and who they are...and I think that's due to the decision their parents made early on to expose them to other walks of life.

All royal are regular people, just born or married in different circumstances. They're human before royal.
