So what do you suppose Catherine thinks about the death of Eva Rousing? Apparently she was found dead and had a problem with drugs along with her husband. They are philanthropists worth billions and were supporters of Action on Addiction. They have given lots of money to the charity. I wonder if Catherine ever met them. Its rather sad that they still had the addictions even after going through rehab. The news said her husband was arrested having found drugs in his possession and was driving crazy. The police werent sure how long Eva had been deceased, maybe a few days. Such a sad story. Just thought I would comment on this since Catherine is patron of this charity.

I heard about that just a little while ago and its sad to see just how tragic addictions can turn out to be. I would guess that Kate feels as the rest of us probably do that abusing any substance is self destructive. I don't think she would go public with any kind of statement and if anything, it would confirm the need for programs such as Action on Addiction.

If this is true, Kate had a little BBQ for the scouts!

Lee Crimes ‏@iamleecrimes : So my 8 year old stepbrother went over to Kate Middleton's house lastnight for a BBQ with his mate's. I think I'm about to cry with jealousy

Lee Crimes ‏@iamleecrimes : Like....he's 8!! He doesn't even realise that she's a mega babe! And she had a BBQ on the go! Kate Middleton cooking burgers!! Oh my days.

Gosh, there must have been a lot of cars in Kate's driveway. And all those parents. Of course, the Troop could be just three boys.

probably more likely there were a few parents and the troop leaders to chaperone the troop for a BBQ and then the destination was Kates. I would assume that it wasnt told to everyone upfront or there would be an abundance of parents etc

I seem to recall that their place in Angelesy is a farm house on a bigger piece of property - this BBQ may have occurred at one of the other buildings on the place. either way it is a sweet story and nicely done.

It sounds like a wonderful time was had by everybody involved. One thing most people wouldn't associate with a princess is gutting fish though. EWWWW . Not exactly my cup of tea either but I do make a mean s'more!

Major kudos to Kate for gutting a fish. You wouldn't catch me doing that. She just went up a few more steps on my ladder of respect.

What a nice treat for the Scouts. Ah, the little things we find out about the Duchess, like wielding a deft hand gutting fish. Watch out, William, don't get her angry!

Seems Catherine is rehearsing for the day when she is the hostess of Royal garden parties or for the (in-)Famous family BBQs in Balmoral. Nice story, though. My nephew is with the Scouts, too and his little tribe often does BBQs at the garden of one of the members or volounteers, where all of that small "family" are invited but noone else. so if Catherine has attached herself to one of those small tribes, then only the members including the parents would come, of course.

I can picture it clearly. The whole family fishing on the River Dee and Kate gutting and cleaning the fish while Philip grills them to perfection on the BBQ. And we must not forget the corgis keeping them all on their toes.

It definitely seems that everyone involved enjoyed themselves. I for one, cannot stomach smelling cooked fish at times, so touching raw fish would send me over the edge (not in a good way either). Kudos to Catherine for being able to do this.

Yep, same here. She's certainly very handy when it comes to cooking/kitchen-related skills.

Oh, Heaven help us all ! I can just picture fish guts flying around during a rather heated disagreement (which would probably result in having to keep a really strong air freshener handy) . I won't want to be near their house if this were to every occur .

This is definitely a delightful picture . I think Catherine would actually really get a kick out of doing something like that. She seems to feel at home when outside in the woods or on the beach.

I would have liked to have been a fly on the wall when HM and the DoE heard about Catherine's fish gutting.
