Her coat of arms looks the same as every coat of arms I have seen. I have no eye for details.

PrincePatrick 02-01-2012 07:26 PM

You can find tons of information on TRF about coats of arms, but yea it's just a combination of her coat of arms and williams...you can note the Prince of Wales' coronet (I think) with some other embellishments, which lets you know that she's married to someone in that line of succession.

To make this post SOMEWHAT relevant to this thread, I'll add the question, was she able to see William off, or is she still in Mustique with her family?

She left too. If you look in the Duke & Duchess thread I posted a link to pictures of them boarding the plane.

There was a big article about her coat of arms before they married (and can you believe it's almost been a year????) that the acorns represented the 3 Middleton offspring. I thought it rather cool and that Catherine was able to incorporate it into the Windsor arms.

Kate will undertake her first two solo engagements on February 8th and 14th. On the 8th she'll visit an exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery and on the 14th she'll visit the Ronald McDonald House and The Brink (an alcohol free cafe bar linked to Action on Addiction).

Just for info: Today I got a thankyou card for my greetings for her 30th birthday. It's a nice photo in it and at the backside is the thankyou-text.

That's neat principessa, what photo of her was it?

I think it's great that she'll be doing something Valentine's Day.

principessa 02-02-2012 05:16 PM

Thank you for sharing that. What a great keepsake to have :biggrin:.

Another article on Catherine's solo engagements this month. I'm looking forward to seeing her in action without her husband. We'll get to see a little bit more of what she's like officially when William is not there, and she's front and center. The engagements are up her alley, so that should be very helpful in keeping her as nerves-free as possible.

Lovely photo; what a nice thank you and memento! She's wearing the Canadian maple leaf brooch and red suit from the Canada tour so this may have been taken at that time.

Yay for you.

Perhaps I'll invite the Duke and Duchess to my wedding - which will be much less grander but tons of fun all the same. I don't want a gift from them, but something like what you got, princepessa, would be a wonderful.

The Duchess of Cambridge is being offered the perfect preparation for her life as a working Royal – a series of ‘training sessions’ with the Queen.
Kate will take on a handful of solo engagements while Prince William is absent.

Not at all surprising. Her Majesty is a good teacher for this sort of thing. She has been doing it for sixty years after all :biggrin:.

Sure, she has been working as a Queen more than 60 years:biggrin:

LadyGabrielle 02-05-2012 12:05 AM

Well there is no better teacher than the Queen herself. Catherine should be able to learn alot from her . What an honour indeed to make appearances with the Queen.

fortimo 02-05-2012 01:28 AM

Is she living now alone in London or in Anglesey?

Daria_S 02-05-2012 01:15 PM

Interesting. If this were to happen, it would be a wonderful way to raise money for her charities.

I like that she'll be spending Valentine's Day with those who are in need of love and support. It's what the holiday is all about, and not just candy hearts and cheesy greeting cards the media and candy/greeting card/flower industries made it become.

Baroness of Books 02-05-2012 04:00 PM

If that's true about the Duchess' future plans for a photo exhibition, that's a great way to put her talent to good use.
