Thank you for the update Cepe. Good to see that the Cambridges can substitute for each other when the need arises. William went to Malta when Catherine was ill last year and tonight she can return the favor.

Kate's abilities as a speaker leave so much to be desired, to put it politely. Its so distracting to watch her shake her head every other second to get the hair back from her face and read those few sentences, that are always the same sentences as in every other speech, almost completely from paper/constantly looking up and down.

She is making an attempt. Kate will probably never be great orator but she doesn't need to be.

William and Harry are very pedestrian public speakers and they have been doing it their entire lives. Its not easy thing to do when you're nervous and many people have an actual phobia with it.

I applaud her for trying and she will probably continue do more as she gets comfortable with it

That's being a bit generous.

I think she has gotten better. Not everyone are good at speaking. Take the Queen for example. The BRF are not known for being good speakers so I think Kate is doing alright. At least she's doing it! I think she was more confident this time and that will continue to grow. Cut her some slack.

Holly Willoughby admitted she was so nervous meeting the Duchess of Cambridge she couldn't stop talking about sandwiches.

Speaking on This Morning the presenter said she wasn't disappointed after meeting her idol for the first time at the Annual Fostering Excellence Awards, despite embarrassing herself.

On hosting duties at the event held by the Fostering Network she said: "I got a bit nervous and kept talking. Do you know what I was talking about? It's so me...

"There was a plate of sandwiches in front of us and no one wanted to eat them because they were all too nervous to eat in case she came over.

"So I went, 'When are we allowed to start eating the sandwiches? Because we're really scared we're going to get cress in our teeth!'"

Phillip Schofield hung his head as he feigned despair at his ditzy co-host , joking: "Well that's a nice conversation starter!"

I agree that she will likely improve over time and that she like many other people will have to put real effort into overcoming a fear of public speaking. Few royals can give speeches as easily as Queen Letizia who had decades of experience before becoming the crown princess and later queen of Spain.

Again, it's not easy making speeches. Most likely she'll approve over time, but the most important thing is her message. I'm glad that Catherine is speaking up on behalf of her charities. Showing up to the events, and listening to everyone is great and important, but speaking out about her charities is even more important. The more speeches she make, the better she'll get at performing them.

It's just good to hear from Catherine. People do want to hear from the future Queen.

She also isn't using a TelePrompTer like a newscaster or a politician would so she is going to have to look down at the words.
