I think it was very nice and fun for a cake to be made of the wedding. I bet that made his day.

Thank you for the article. His Highness will indeed be a great King. I hope we're all able to witness his reign in some capacity.

Couldn't agree more.

Love the pictures. His smile is so sincere and warm. Makes you want to smile along with him .

That smile should be bottled up and sold to those who are feeling down. It would bring a great deal of sunshine.

It appears that this is William's patronage and he took an interest in this organization before his marriage. Prior to William's interest, the Queen Mother and Charles have also been involved, in some capacity, with St Giles.

I don't see how it's appropriate she didn't attend, just because it's Williams patronage and he has a history with it doesn't mean she couldn't have attended with him. It's nice to have some company on an evening out y'know.

Indeed- along with the page that has a list of the things that make women drool!
Agree with all the other statements!

I'd add two thoughts. Every time the Duke and Duchess appear together (and especially in the evening), the focus comes off the event and onto Kate and her frock/hair/etc. I think the couple realize this and choose to NOT go together when they want the focus to be on the charity or event. It's a very mature choice to make.

Second, on the frock issue, since the press has decided to tote up every penny she spends, one less night out means one less gown needed.

Just my opinion.

Well the press and public better get used to them appearing together because although they each have their own patronages, going forward the focus is on The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. That is to be their main charitable vehicle for the rest of their lives. I don't think it was planned for Catherine not to attend. The couple attend much higher profile events together than this and the tabloids will always focus on Catherine's hair and clothes because that's what winds up the tabloid readership

I meant that it's appropriate that each have their individual charities and interests as well as ones they do together.

It's a pattern that we will see more and more of - some individual, some joint engagements - similar to what Sophie and Edward do now.

The reality is that just like all the other royal couples, William & Catherine won't always attend the same event together. It's not about one taking the attention off the other but from time to time the royal couple do separate official engagements. That's the pattern married royal couples have been doing for decades.

Well yes, doing engagements separately makes sense and it's obvious to cover more ground. However I don't see why it's more appropriate for Catherine to attend one event with William instead of another. They obviously choose themselves when they want to do joint engagements, or they get invited together etc.

Yes, the royals tend to have loose areas of interest that they tend to focus their attention on.

This is explained by Prince Edward from approximately 3:10 to 5:00 in the following video (Sophie is likely to do 'children, animals, disease' - Edward more likely to do 'youth, sports, the arts' - although overlaps are common and willingly carried out).

Actually, the whole video is rather interesting - it's only 6 1/2 minutes long, but gives some insight - from Anne and Edward themselves - on how engagements are chosen and carried out.

Also, sometimes royal couples have private engagements or other commitments to attend to.

I'm sure both William & Catherine love doing their official engagements together. What I find very encouraging is that Catherine has gain a great deal of confidence to carryout some official engagements on her own. William is of course used to doing it but now his wife is able to handle this on her own too and I'm sure he's proud of her and the grace she has shown when she's doing solo engagements.
