None of the royals take care of their children full time. In fact, most members of the aristocracy don't care for the children full-time. That's the way they live. It's how William and Harry were raised as well. But she does see them daily and seems to take them to play dates and spend time with them. You're right, she is not caring for them 24/7, but she also does royal duties. As Dman said more eloquently than I, it's a mixture. Now if she did no duties nor ever saw George and Charlotte, then I would wonder what she was doing, but neither of those are the case.

Most people in Sweden (where I live) don't take care of their kids full time. Almost all kids go to daycare. Even parents without jobs are allowed 15 hours a week of daycare for their kids. Most parents even in countries where stay at home parenting is common don't take care of their kids 100% of the year.

This thread isn't about Harry, Beatrice, the Swedish royals, or whether Catherine takes care of the children full-time. Let's please stick to the topic - future duties and responsibilities. If you wish to discuss the staff that William and Catherine employ, you can take it to the Staff of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge thread.

Yes we know they are not full time yet. that wont happen for a while possibly not till Charles is King. But I dont think that they do as much as they coudl as part timers. But it is all very hard to discuss because we dont know what they 're going to do.. or when they will go full time.

The Queen (and presumably Charles has input) make the decisions about who is doing what. Therefore at this point we can figure they are doing what they are supposed to be doing.

Myself I think they will shift into full time, assuming the Queen wants them to, after William leaves his job in a few months. He's already indicated things are going to be changing.

Queen Elizabeth and PrincePhilip are doing still some events, Prince Charles and Camilla are working full time, Comtess Sophie is also working and doing a lot of public events
Are there enough public events for William and Kate? perhaps the team of communication is not giving them public events? perhaps some associations are asking the presence of the queen or the presence of Camilla or Charles in first to the palace.
It is not to Kate or William to say ' give us work ' , it is to the team of communication of the palace to search where and what sort of events the duc or the duchess of Cambridge could attend.

She was on maternity leave last year so you would hope that would be the case.

What a stupid article. "Previously, attempts to involve her-even when initiated by the Queen - were resisted" I find that highly not believable that anyone in the royal family would refuse a request from the Queen.

The first solo visit was scheduled 2 years ago but she couldn't go because she was sick with HG. Probably for half the time of her marriage, Kate has been either sick with HG, about to have a baby or just had a baby and is nursing it. Prior to this year, you have to go back to 2012 to get a almost full year where a baby didn't effect the engagement schedule and who knows 2016 maybe like 2012 when December was wiped away with HG from George.

Even with her pregnancies and HG, Kate has done hundreds of official engagements and went on very high profile tours.

3 months after her marriage she and William were standing on Parliament Hill in front of 500,000 people for Canada Day celebrations.

It wasn't until 2013-ish and 7-8 years of marriage before Camilla went abroad 'solo' for the first time and it wasn't nearly as high profile a visit as Kate's.

With the speculation the Cambridges will relocate to Kensington Palace later this year, how would any transition to full time royal duties actually happen? Would they just start suddenly cutting more ribbons and suchlike?

I wouldn't expect a specific announcement about their moving as they currently travel between their 2 homes now and I would expect that to continue - just probably weekdays in the city, weekends at Anmer. However, I would expect some sort of announcement is regarding the status of William's contract/ work and the follow up will be the Cambridges will be taking on more responsibilities in London, etc.

Not about them moving...about them taking on full time duties.

There isn't a 'cut-off' number that differentiates 'part-time' royals from 'full-time' royals. That's more for the press.

The BRF doesn't make much fuss about this sort of thing.

I think the only way we'll really know that they've "transitioned" to full time working royals is by watching the events via the court circular. We've already been seeing quite a bit of an increase lately.

There'll be no announcements but something that is just done. We'll see more patronages being taken on, more investitures and perhaps (for Dman) more honorary military positions. The Cambridges will be out and about and in the media more and the fashionistas will be very, very happy. Perhaps William will get himself some suits that aren't blue too.

There will be an announcement from KP on the end of William's contract with the air ambulance and an announcement of the Cambridge's royal duties future.

They've made announcements about all of this before, so I think we should expect some announcements about the end of the contract.

The Cambridges has already stepped up and William had (according to Iluvbertie) almost as many engagements as the full-time working Sophie.

And If they start working full-time, it would be great. But they don't need to do so as long as HM The Queen lives.
