Wow! Catherine did a fantastic job on her first solo visit. She was greeted with such warmth and good cheer by The King, officials and crowds. Her royal highness has come a long way in her role and it's going to grow even more.

Yes, I think the time is coming for Catherine to receive a formal recognition for her years of service by Her Majesty The Queen.

Very proud of Catherine. She's doing wonderful things in mental health

Quote:
...But the main focus of the day is hosting a roundtable discussion with two of Kate’s charities, the Anna Freud Centre, which supports children’s mental health, and Action on Addiction, which concentrates on the harmful effects to families of drug and alcohol abuse.

They will join with representatives from the Trimbos Institute, which conducts research into the same issues.

“She has initiated a brilliant idea of bringing institutions together that have similar interests,” says Peter Fonagy, the chief executive of the Anna Freud Centre, who joined Kate in Holland. “She’s aiming to help us learn from each other and bring back what there is from each side.”

The bridge-building could signal a widening of her initiative, he says: “Because of her charisma, because of her interest, she is able to bring together people who would not normally be talking to one another and that brings enormous value.”

Thank you for posting the link Duke of Marmalade.

I guess little George and Charlotte would have been tucked up in bed asleep by the time Catherine got home.

The "Daily Mail/Mail Online" is reporting she took the last flight of the day, from Rotterdam to the London City airport, departing the Netherlands at 7.15pm.

Last on and first off the plane - whisked away in the car on the tarmac before the other passengers could disembark.

And although some-one's photos got made public, it sounds as though plenty of people onboard couldn't resist taking their own memorable snaps of the day they flew with Royalty.

Nice tweet from Kensington Palace:

https://twitter.com/KensingtonRoyal/...rc=twsrc%5Etfw

It reads in Dutch:

Bedankt voor jullie gastvrijheid Nederland! Het was gezellig!

Translated in English:

Thanks for your hospitality, Netherlands! It was gezellig! (hard to translate: a mix of cosiness with enjoyablility and pleasantness).

Interesting the Foreign Office stresses Catherine's visit says so much about the friendship between the UK and the NL. I guess there was something to the 'soft diplomacy' stories after all.

Nick Heath @nickheathfco
Privilege to have The Duchess here. Her visit said so much about modern friendship between UK and NL (&thanks to Aad Hoogendoorn for photo!)

Lets face it. When we really think about it, relationships between nations are very similar to relationships we have as individuals. We can be best friends with another person even if they have different viewpoints on politics than we do.

Its not rocket science.

I love that she did this engagement- more of these unannounced visits that focus on vulnerable people and helping meet their needs would go a long way towards defining Catherine's royal role and her goals

Buried w/in this article is reference to her private visit to a nearby women's prison where she spoke to staff and to prisoners. Good for her, it's never easy to walk into a prison as a visitor, IME, and it's clear that Catherine seeks to understand the problem so as to more effectively focus on solutions rather than just cutting ribbons and unveiling plaques.

As part of her ongoing work to highlight the effects of addiction and mental health difficulties, the royal mom visited the Nelson Trust Women’s Centre in Gloucester, around 100 miles west of London.

She was also introduced to women who have accessed support at the Women’s Centre, and listened to their own personal experiences.

“We know that she has a special interest in this area and she understands the needs of those using our services,” chief executive of the trust, John Trolan, tells PEOPLE

“We see her as an inspirational individual who can motivate our staff as they continue to work in this very difficult operating environment.”

Trolan says they see their role as “preventing women going into prison and if they have been there, prevent them going again. We seek to support them so they can turn their lives around.

“Everybody agrees that these women should not be in prison — they are low level offenders.”

He adds of Kate, “Her insights are impressive and her interest is sincere and it’s very obvious from the other work of she does and the interest she shows on the area.

I knew showbiz can be catty.

And I heard the quote that the Duchess of Cambridge asked if Bob the cat was purring, or was he growling, when she gave him a pat at his movie premiere.

But, has poor Bob had his reputation besmirched?

The "Mirror" has posted a photo of Catherine's events today where she has a big bandaid across her hand.

"No comment" was the official response when the cause of the injury was asked after.

Bob, unless they say you did it - I'll believe in your innocence!

(Growling reports or not.)

Re: the Bob alleged scratch.
My current bandage in the same location is over a blister I got raking leaves.

Bob is exonerated! Excellent Skippyboo.



And this story is spreading - even Royal reporter Rebecca English has thrown poor puss under the bus in an article with big photos of Catherine's ban-daid covered hand.

And saying the Duchess is "tight-lipped"about what happened to her.

Poor Bob. He's innocent I say!

You'd better get your PR on top of this Bob - though they do say, any publicity is good pubicity I suppose.

Catherine cooks, running after two kids and has a dog. She has suffered from cuts and scratches before.
