What a brilliant fundraising idea, combining and benefiting 2 of the Duchess's charites! And what gorgeous art!

I'm going to focus on the actual posts that are accurate from today...

LOVE that card!! Not only is it gorgeous, but it's truly one of those takes care of two worthy organizations at the same time things. Never a bad thing when that happens and I doubt very much if it wasn't for Kate's patronage, neither one would have been in touch w/each other.

However, they were and in turn they both have a gorgeous card to use to raise money. Huge win for both!!

Yeah, it really is a nice card. Obviously these kids are way more artistic than I was as a kid.

I'm really looking forward to the announcement about the charities Catherine will officially support soon.

I do wonder if an announcement will come this year on a honorary military position for her?

I wouldn't in the least bit be surprised if Kate took on a charity that focuses of well being and care for pregnant and new mothers.

I'm looking forward the announcement too I remember last year SJP announced her patronages on 4th january, so probably would be the same this year.

Let's wait and see

I read in an article that the announcement could be delayed because of her pregnancy. The reason is that she wasn´t able to make visits to the projects and therefor she didn´t decide.

Instead if thinking of taking on more patronages to visit them once a year, how about dedicatig a little more time to this?

EACH@EACH_hospicesWe're very sorry to say that we've decided to cancel our Clothes Swap event in Bury St Edmunds on 8th Feb due to low ticket sales

I'm sure the EACH staff, Catherine and her aides would've done something about this if they could. The Duchess of Cambridge is briefed by daily and weekly and meetings are held on her charities of which she's royal patron. The palace just said that HRH is pretty busy with meetings.

That's too bad they had to cancel that event though.

Is she really busy with meetings?? It's getting a bit dificult to believe it ... but let's assume she is. Why are they not made public? Isn't one of her roles to make the charities known to the public? Raise awarness, raise funds, etc, etc. Sure, she can visit the charities without it being made public, she can be in constant contact with the charities and we'll never know about it, but shouldn't she visit them more often? to me it's clear she should and could if she wished so... she's not a patron of many charities after all. How many times has she visited EACH? Once, i think... She could do much more for her charities and this is an example, she could announce that she would be at the Clothes Swap event, I'm sure many people would turn up just to see her. Or instead visit the charity and say something like "Look, there'll be an event on February, why don't you come?" I'm sure some people would turn up, people from the region who would go just for curiosity

How many times do these other royals visit their charity each year?
Didn't she just sent them a baby basket for charity? Did she visited their place during her Asian tour #Each

Did her Doctors say she can go back to work yet after her Hyperemesis gravidarum? Some people (journalist) are acting like they know what her health is just because she went to a gas station, the gap and a drug store.

^It´s a very strage Hyperemesis gravidatum if you ask me, one that allows her to hand in an award on TV and attend the opening of her portrait, but not do ANY work for 2 months complete.

Until everyone was sure she is well, no engagements would have been organised. This is out of consideration for the places to be visited. IT takes a lot of organisation, plus security etc for a visit to take place, so cancelling is wasteful of a lot of people's time and effort.


Now the Duchess is feeling well, her staff will be organising meetings but, again, these take time - particularly sorting out diairies, arranging security, etc. It's all very well saying "do it" but people and places need to be available. It isn't just her diary that needs to be accommodated.

If people took time out to realise what organisation these meetings take by ALL concerned, perhaps there would be less negativity.


I'm just pleased that she is now well.

The palace just said that The Duchess of Cambridge is busy working and will start up her official engagements soon.

Members of the royal family usually start back performing official engagements in February (depending on the schedualing). Like The Queen will kick off her year of official engagements on Feb 5th, before returning to London.

She was going to Christmas lunches in December as well so obviously has been feeling better for quite some time. I would also think that going shopping would be more tiring than visiting one of her charities for perhaps an hour. It's all a bit strange.

These are informal meetings that if she was feeling unwell, she could leave. Setting up formal meetings which could involve 10's of people (ie a hospital or hospice visit) is a lot of organising on both sides, and a lot a disappointment if it is cancelled. OR of course she could stay and throw up over everyone

She was only at the ceremony for about 45 minutes, so she didn't spend much time at the event.

She took a few months off to take care of herself, and she's now back to her daily meetings with advisors and her charities. According to the Palace, they're working out her schedule and she should be back to public duties in February.

A private lunch is much different than a charity event. If she gets sick while dining with friends/family/employees, she can leave or cancel. Much trickier with a public engagement.

As for shopping, hasn't it only been in the last few weeks that she's been spotted out and about? Before that, things were pretty quiet. Now that she's back to work (behind the scenes) and feeling much better, I imagine we'll see her resume normal activities - like shopping, getting coffee, having dinner with family, etc.

It's been known that Catherine often visit her charities privately and she's in constant contact with them. Her diary is being arranged within these meetings.

She never stays for more than 1 hour when she visits a charity. And since when HG is an excuse for women to stop working? Pregnant women do not get 3 months off work for HG, (yes in February when she´s back it will be 3 months), and you can hardly call what she does work. So make all the excuses you want for her. I have the right to believe the palace has made a statement that she visits her charities in "private" because all this situation is getting a bit ridiculous and the criticism is increasing. Not twits about her private visits but a lot on her shoppings.
