HRH is discussing psychological support for those affected by #LondonBridge with A&E Lead @malcolm1771 & Dr Muj Husain from @MaudsleyNHS pic.twitter.com/6gdaUTh2bA

Princess Kate made a surprise visit to King’s College Hospital in London on Monday to meet with some of the victims of the city’s June 3 terror attack.

Of the 48 injured, 14 were taken to King’s, with one able to leave soon after. The other 13 needed treatment for stab wounds — seven of whom were in a critical condition and are still receiving constant treatment. (Eight people died in the attack, while the three assailants, who drove through pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbed restaurant and pub-goers in nearby Borough Market, were shot at the scene by police.)

Kate was met by Nick Moberly, the hospital’s chief executive, and professor Julia Wendon. She was also introduced to two of the hospital’s team leaders trained to deal with major incidents, Jane Bond of Gold Command and Silver Command’s Mark Madams.

Harry has been all over the place other than London and it is worth noting that Catherine's visit, like those of the rest of the royals, has been made when the emergency is over and does not disrupt the hospital nor stress the patients.

Well done Catherine.

Yes, I think people often forget that Catherine is a mother of two and her time is often taken up by them. She do her duties, but her life is busy at home too.

Princess Kate enjoyed an artsy outing in London on Thursday.

Kate, who earned an art history degree at St. Andrew’s University (where she met and fell in love with husband Prince William!), opened new areas of the prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) close to her London home at Kensington Palace.

After a brief tour, she attended a reception in Blavatnik Hall to meet those who helped pull off the project, before unveiling a commemorative plaque in Sackler Courtyard to officially mark the opening of the V&A Exhibition Road Quart

Oh, she is back to being Kate or the Duchess of Cambridge again.

I feel I have to thank the DF for this - so thanks to my (not so) favourite paper/online site.

I'd love to visit the V&A when the new refurbishments have been completed.
The clip of Catherine and the little flower girl was so cute!

I am posting this here because I am not quite sure where I should put it. The Spanish State Dinner had the media and not a few of us looking at Catherine's decolletage and the stunning Ruby and Diamond Bandeau nestled there, so much so that we missed her face.

Oh dear, social media and youtube are catching up and there are a succession of photographs beginning with the dinner that shows Catherine as "stony faced" and I have to admit they are right, she is.

What happened between these photos and no, I do not believe as some have surmised that she was suddenly overcome by wearing Diana's favourite tiara and the upcoming 20th anniversary of her death as posited by some so-called knowledgeable commentators. For one thing, the Spencer Tiara was her favourite tiara and the LK was known to give her headaches.

http://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/...dge-828056.jpg

http://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/...iam-829793.jpg

There were several other more graphic examples but I was unable to link them.

While they are supposing their little hearts out as to what is going on I have to admit that I too am wondering at her "stop a train in its tracks" look or, as my sister (a total fan) remarked "what on earth happened, her face looks like a ruptured gumboot?". I said I hadn't a clue, and I doubt anyone outside of the two of them do. But after watching several videos covering the last couple of weeks I have to admit I am beginning to think something is up.

Just to show that all is "personally well" with both she and William here is a beautiful warm shot.

I think Catherine's nerves was getting to her at the State Banquet. Pretty harmless, of course. If you pay attention to the royals faces at these Banquets, they all seem to be rather bored stiff and nervous at the same time. It's like their faces drop. It's very weird.

I personally think the Majesty of it all gets to them. Also, the speeches aren't any help. There's no joy nor humor in them. If so, it would at least help break the nervous tension and help everyone at the dinner relax. A lump would be in my throat if I was there.

Photos are only a moment in time though, as we've always said. I don't think any royals attend very formal occasions grinning their heads off. There are probably some quite boring times between courses and when listening to bland and rather uninteresting speeches at banquets. There can be language difficulties in having a full conversation with the person sitting next to you as well. I would guess that many of these photos of Kate and others were taken when listening (or not!) to the speeches.

Listening to those speeches can't be easy. I've listened to plenty in my day. Also, it's very hard for people to believe that the royals get nervous too. People think because they attend countless banquets and other royal functions, they are at ease at these things. It's far from the truth. The royals do get bored and even nervous when on duty.

I could tell Catherine was a little nervous and thinking when listening to the speeches. That's why her eyes were wondering a bit.

I also thought something is up when I first saw that picture of Catherine sitting at the dinner..that girl showed she was not a happy camper at all....it is like, get me out of here now type of look on her face. IMO I think there must be times when it is very difficult to be a royal, sure the lifestyle is very different from all of us and they don't have the financial worries that many do, yet those meetings, the events, the tours, and life planned to the minute must drive anyone up a wall at times, I could not do that for all the money in the world, and yet when born into a royal family there is that sense of commitment they are brought up with. They really have very little freedom in life to be just spur of the moment type of thing.. yet in looking at today's event maybe that visit to the camp helped put things in better perspective not just for them but for everybody who went there.

I think that the younger royals need to visit these places, all royal families should at one time pay a visit there to remind them that we can not let this ever happen again.
