The media? You mean the Daily Mail. You're the one who posted the article.

I posted the article because it's about Catherine's official engagement to the children's farm. That's where the attention of article should be, on her official engagement, not on the photo investigation. It's beyond stupid for the DM to do this. Gotta post the article on her engagement, but I have to point out the stupidity of linking her job to the trial.

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.
I disagree about Kate's immersion into her role. She's been in the Royal Family for six years and she is still an incomplete in my opinion. She had some bad PR moments and a tag of being "work shy" (along with William). Her speaking engagements still need some work. Here's a clip on her speech on motherhood this year:



Kate still reads from the paper, and she still hesitates. She, I thought, had some training in public speaking after she married into the Firm. It looks like she still needs some work.

Do you know who else still reads from papers? Queen Elizabeth II

so glad you wrote this. So tired of anti Catherine posts from people who have no idea how it is to speak in public.

I did it for over 10 years as part of my career. And mostly I had notes in my hand like the Queen.

Sometimes I didn't, but the scared the whatsit out of me!

Too many people willing to criticise. That's why this Forum is failing.

I agree with cepe--thank you hernameiskka. I thought Queen Elizabeth reads most of her speeches.
I think some people are natural public speakers, some are able to learn public speaking and some never become comfortable giving speeches.

The Duchess of Cambridge Current Events 5: February 2015

I was in a public speaking class in High School, and all I can say is, it's perfectly okay to read from a paper. Not everyone has the ability to appear calm and composed in front of a crowd, while speaking in complete sentences without hesitating. Not everyone is a Michelle Obama.

The Duchess of Cambridge has paid a surprise visit to survivors of the London terror attacks, quietly meeting with victims and staff at King's Hospital.

The Duchess arrived at the south east London hospital at 1.50pm, for a visit that was not publicised in advance to enable staff to continue to treat those affected without disruption.

In total 14 victims were taken to King’s, one of whom was ‘walking wounded’ and able to leave quickly after being seen by emergency staff.

The remaining 13 required treatment for stab wounds of varying severity. Seven were in a critical condition and are still receiving round-the-clock treatment.

Very nice to see that all the senior royals have now visited those who were injured from the attacks.

Some other countries but other than attending the Abbey service for the Westminster victims, Harry hasn't visited any victims or emergency personnel from Manchester or London Bridge

That's right, I forgot about Harry. He did pay tribute to the victims in his speeches though. I guess he too will make a visit.

It's good to see Catherine and doing these visits.
