Catherine and children never fails to disappoint! I'm in tears! I have an idea that a patronage could happen- and if so- and even if not- then a Christmas party at KP like Camilla does at CH would be wonderful. I'm betting a lot of these kids have never been to a palace. Again, I know someone who would be fantastic entertainment at this...

Exciting news. I was wondering when she would do something like that.

I think it's a great fit

Huffington Post UK editor-in-chief Stephen Hull said staff at the publication were "thrilled" at the prospect of welcoming their guest in mid-February.

"Dealing with mental health issues has been a major editorial focus for us and I'm very excited to be working together on such an important project," he said.

The whining from the Royal reporters on Twitter is childish.

Hahaha, such childish behaviour and whining. Like this is for a charity !! How is this different from the annual event where members of the BRF "broker deals" to raise money for charity?
She is a guest editor and will be focusing on mental health issues, not breaking new! and its only for one day. They can stay mad for all I care. This shows that they are selfish and want things to always benefit them! It really does not reflect well on the, which is ironic as they are trying to paint this good initiative in a bad light.

They act like they have not been focusing on her clothes and hair and less on her charities for her entire royal life. Now she has found a way that will allow, for just one day, for the focus to be on the main issue at hand which is mental health.

Yall know how much I love her focus on mental health issues, especially with regards to children. I did a little dance when I saw that tweet from KP.
A whole day where Huffpost(with about 250 million daily views) will focus on mental health issues, allowing the people affected to direct the tone of the concersation and hopefully help fight the stigma is a brilliant initiative.

I for one absolutely love it and cant wait!!

I wonder why the palace announced this project such in advance! Does it mean that Kate won't make an official appereance until mid February? Mustique time is approaching, but I thought that she would attend an engagement or two, even though January is usually a slow month.

I think it might be to garner alot of attention in beforehand, so people can hype it up or such. And also probably the yearly trip since people seem to be shocked that they take one sun trip per year.

And somewhat hypocritical, TBH. Consider this tweet from the fall:

@jeb61ju It's clear William, Kate, and Harry support Charles's idea of a more activist monarchy. I just think she needs to speak out more.
Basically, from the cheap seats, the conversation is looking like this:

"speak up more"
<Kate makes arrangements to have more of a voice>
"NOT THAT WAY!"

Something tells me that maybe that's the main reason

Also since articles are being commissioned on topic, less Likely chance of containing the story. so KP announced to control the message. More people are involved. I seem to recall when prince Charles edited a magazine last year it was announced early as well.

Richard Palmer is the absolute worst. He's running around retweeting disgusting articles & he wonders why the Royals don't want to talk to him.

He called me angry person & a troll that overstepped the mark or something cause I called him out on it.

How do people like that have a job? He's constantly on twitter whining about everything and threatening to "do mean articles" or whatever.

Lord.

Lord.

His behavior really has been appalling- tweeting ugly things while complaining that he can't get near the family.

I wonder why?
