British royals are honorary members of dozens (hundreds?) of organisations but lets all have a fit when Catherine becomes a member of a photographic society.

Kate has always been interested in photography and its use of light, color and and how the subject is framed in the photo. I think she's done wonderfully and this honor shows it. Andrew is another one that is a photography buff.
I agree Osipi that it does appear that people are overlooking the fact that this is an honorary membership.

I actually met the Duchess of Cambridge during her visit to The Hague at October 10! (Apologies for the delay, I'm planning to visit this forum more often). It was a great experience. It was over in a blink of an eye (I said: 'Your Royal Highness, nice to meet you' and she said 'Nice to meet you too' - deep conversation!), but it was fantastic.

Where was she holding her clutch and did it convey deep meaning to you? Just kidding - what a thrill for you! I am deeply envious.

To be precise: she put her clutch in the car before she approached the public to meet them. I read a lot into that, for sure.

Thanks, it was a thrill indeed, an absolutely great experience I'll never forget.

Danke u vel! I enjoyed reading about your encounter with HRH! (And for providing an eyewitness observation of Kate and the clutch!)

I love this. When my brother was in the hospital, we stayed at the Ronald McDonald House and it is a huge weight off of your shoulders for so many reasons. Glad to see her supporting the foundation!

The Duchess of Cambridge today officially opened the new 59-bedroom Ronald McDonald House Evelina London, providing a ‘home away from home’ for families of children at Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

Her Royal Highness toured the new House and met Ronald McDonald House staff and Evelina London doctors and nurses.

Joining in on a Pancake Day arts and crafts session with children, Her Royal Highness spoke to parents who have found that the new House eases the difficulties of having a child staying at Evelina London. She heard many moving stories from families and siblings who explained that staying at the House greatly eased the stress and strain of having a sick child, and gave them more time to concentrate on the condition of their child.

Until William steps down from his civilian career Kate is the full time royal in the Cambridge branch of the family and possibly heading towards being the Anne of the generation, should the solo engagements gather momentum, although in terms of actual engagements will probably never come close.

Six years ago today when she became a member of the RF, the thoughts of taking on such an engagement would have definitely daunted if not terrified her! With good reason, back then, completely unequipped for the task!

In the eight/ten year apprenticeship as royal GF she probably mastered the arts of patience, sustainment and discretion. The next six would have been a whole new ball game, family life aside.

But she did have a very eased in approach taken which is probably paying off now. I expect at this stage she is relishing the role.

Duchess of Cambridge visits children's farm in Gloucester | Daily Mail Online

Catherine visits the children's farm.

I don't know why the media feel the need to link Catherine's official engagement today with the french photo investigation. They shouldn't be doing this. Two separate things that should stay separated.
