How often have Philip or Camilla given speeches while on official tours with their spouses? Not very often.

And there are these horse shows for the Queen's birthday. It is said that senior members of the royal family will be present each day, so it might be an appereance for the Cambridges? Furthermore, I think they will do an engagement or two both. Australia/NZ was three weeks, this was only a week. So they might return sooner this time?

June will at least be quite busy for them: Trooping, Garter, SportsAid anniversary for Kate (expected), France, Wimbledon, Service of Thanksgiving for the Queen, Patrons lunch... Even if we only see them like twice in May, we have a wonderful June ahead of us!

A royal photographer who is usually no defender of the Cambridges seems pretty happy

^^I think that high-level the main gripe that reporters and photographers have with the Cambridges. They may call them work-shy and claim that they aren't as dedicated as far as other royals go, but personally I think they're really just angry that they don't get to take as many pictures or write as many stories on the Cambridges as they would like. The media exist to sell and the Cambridges limiting access and not going out as much, I think, make the media's job more difficult. I'm not surprised that photographer has been complimentary after the tour because he got what he wanted: pictures to sell.

It’s been a whirlwind week travelling with William and Kate and I’ve enjoyed (almost) every minute of it.

It came at a much-needed time for the couple who were facing accusations of being workshy and criticism over their use of royal helicopters .

But after seven days in the spotlight , the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have reminded us all that they know how to charm the crowds.

Oh the horror. Press questions had to be submitted in advance. William and Kate must be crazy. Because, you know the Queen is always walking around, free access, answering questions from off the cuff.

Well he did say visually so Im guessing he made his money back many times over from the pictures sold.

Interesting that KP replied back. They usually don't do that

In post it here because it is about costs.

And here we go again. I don't even bother to read it.

Aw, I miss the good old days when the DM would float a text total cost on top of the photo.

And I'm surprised that they did not use their usual expression ''on taxpayers money'' in the headline.

It is actually pretty interesting, I was wondering about some of the outfits. The totals are all wrong as they count clothes she already has. And jewels

I agree - repeats, shoes, bags and jewelry should not be included ... exception for unique pieces specific for the tour (i.e. the lapis earrings). by my account (using their price estimates - which I'm sure were high) - the incremental cost was approx 20,000 british pound

Funny, we didn't see a price breakdown for Camilla's tour wardrobe or the cost of William's or Harry's tour clothes. A Saville row custom suit isn't cheap.

Kate is the only one that gets a the cost of her outfit published on every Royal engagement. The Queen's at the London Zoo was just described wearing a pale blue coat and hat with feather adornment. If that was Kate, we would know every designer and the retail cost of the clothes, hat, shoes, purse and jewelry.

The media treats Catherine totally different than the rest of the family. I could could careless on how much Catherine's wardrobe costs.

The media wants to market Catherine's wardrobe like they did for Diana.

Is Crown Princesses Mary, Victoria, Queen's Letizia, Maxima and Princess Mette Marit treated like this?

All the press are doing is copying the Kate fans who search the Internet and tell everyone what she is wearing, who made it and the cost of it. Shoes, clothes, jewellery and then "repli-Kates" which are affordable clothes. There are so many people doing it.

The only other Royal who has this happen is Sophie but I think that's only one or two who do it.

And they don't usually credit those that supply the information

What fun to show your child pictures of you feeding a baby elephant or petting a baby rhino. And what a learning opportunity to show the kids the other children you met in the slums of Mumbai, the wild fringes of Assam, the cricket grounds or elsewhere.
Imagine being able to explain to Charlotte or George who is in that statue at the Ghandi home or how the tiger temple was located where it was? Oh and here are Mom and Dad at that temple holding hands!
I know when I was young, I used to ask my mom about what she wore in old pictures and she would tell me stories of this dress or that pair of shoes. I do hope Charlotte and mommy discuss the Pinkham blue and the Anna Sui wild choice.
And that Charlotte and George get to play with some of those many scarves that Mom and Dad bring home. Because a scarf can be many things and children need to explore that a bit.

So can a pile of old couch cushions. Me, my nephews and niece had more fun w/those and a battered chairs and table set of my Sister's. . My Parents did the same w/me and their old photos. There are ways to explain things to little ones and have them understand. I can see the photos from the Park and hike in Bhutan being shown to George and Mummy and Daddy telling him about them, as right now that's right for his age and will be cool. As he and Charlotte grow, I'm sure more stories will be shared, but right now, that's a perfect place to start and it's never too early to start.

I hope so too. I also hope somewhere in Northeastern Ontario is part of it. I can always hope at least!!

The Cambridges are no different.



Just saying they are no different from the rest.

Plus they also had George to get readjusted to being back home from the Kiwi/Aussie Tour, not just them, so the long break after wasn't that big of a surprise to me. I can't see them disappearing, as some put it, there's too much happy stuff happening in the next few weeks. HM's 90th, their 5th Anniversary and a little Princess' very 1st Birthday. There's going to be at least a couple of pictures for Charlotte's Birthday and I'm hopeful for at least a Family Portrait for the Queen's Birthday. Add in a couple of Engagements and...I don't think we'll see them disappear.

In fact, the only time I can legitimately see them "lying low on purpose" over the next few weeks, is during the time of The Invictus Games. That's Harry's time to shine, so in turn...:)

All in all...This was a fantastic tour and Their Royal Highnesses did Her Majesty and their Country proud and more than deserve a bit of break to catch their breath after what was a very hectic and jam packed week and a bit!!

I think the most egregious inclusion was counting things she'd bought before they were married.

Releasing photos of Charlotte is not the same as making appearances. The birthday dinner for the queen is a private event, as is Charlotte's birthday. Unless they attend one of the horse events in May, the queen's birthday events are in June (that we will see them). When people say 'disappear' they mean for engagements. Being out and doing work in public eye for their charities. Not closed door meeting, closed door birthday parties and close door photo shoots with the kids.

It's Harry's time to shine?? Harry had no problem doing engagement while they were in India. Just like his events didn't steal any thunder from the tour, Kate visiting a hospital wouldn't steal the limelight from Invictus.
