He also wanted to get a sense of work being done to help young women to achieve their full potential and for men to become more supportive of the women and girls in their lives.

Thank you! So they have a reception in the evening right?

I'm so pleased to hear that they met with Women's Rights Advocates in India. The current issues regarding women in India are sensitive matters, these women need protection and recognition! So nice of them to meet them and promote women's rights.

Until this event, I hadn't realize how many thousands of children lived on the streets alone escaping from horrors no child should ever have to face.
I have no doubt in my mind that the couple was left very affected after this engagement. Their involvement with children's mental health is a great asset and I hope they will be able to help make these children's lives just a little bit better. I have a feeling that spending some time with a prince and a princess uplifted many children's spirits. William and Catherine are amazing when interacting with children and people in general and the images show exactly that.

I agree and this is also an issue that Camilla has been championing at home in the UK and around the world.

kate seems like such an authentic person. i don't see a trace of 'kate the princess', but just kate in her most authentic state, when i watch those videos. she is unassuming, humble and genuinely seems to care about the people who she speaks to.

good sartorial choices in that she chose demure, leg covering dresses to visit conservative india.

wow - i am surprised about a couple of things:

i am surprised to see kate's staff themselves always carrying luggage around. i would have thought someone else did the unloading for them. maybe they just carried what they needed for the first day?

i also got surprised to see that kate's assistant, rebecca, has an assistant of her own, sophie. i wonder how tasks are delegated between them two... sophie is always seen on tour with the cambridges, so my guess is that she is a more junior assistant to kate, really?

Why would they want strangers handling the Royal luggage? It would be a security risk. Say Natasha is carrying a box with £10K of jewelry in it, it not leaving her sight. Remember Canada and the bomb sifting dogs with the luggage on the Tarmac in Calgary.

I think the reason would be that this is a week long tour and a very hectic one at that. Even with the overloaded schedule that W&K have, their staff cannot work 24/7 and have hours off and I would imagine Rebecca and Sophie share the workload. To be personally responsible for a person and their belongings and whatever else is involved can be quite stressful and they need time to breathe.

Handling the royal couple's belongings themselves assure them that nothing is amiss and everything is in place. I also agree with the point that someone else handling the luggage can be a security risk. They probably check and double check to make sure they have everything.

This has been an amazing tour so far. William & Catherine not only appear to be enjoying themselves, but everyone has welcomed them with open arms. They are doing an amazing job.

Rebecca and Miguel are with William and Kate while they are doing their engagements. So they aren't lugging the bags behind the scenes. The pictures show that most of what they where carrying was William's. There is a W on the suit bag that Sophie is carrying.
