They're getting a bit more fun and informal with their instagram descriptions:

That's what I thought so. Sure it's more "fun", but is it the right way to do it? I mean, they are supposed to highlight what the charities do, not what they (the Cambridges) are doing. So wouldn't it better at least to mention some information about the charities they visit: what is it, what they (the charities) do for the community instead of something like "hey, I visit this place today and I have fun there".

You can definitely tell their social media manager used to work for the Sussexes. It has a feel like their page used to be. Not the same but similar...

I believe they were still at Turning Point Scotland during the "music video" and the previous post had a lot of information and praise for the charity. I do think they have to strike a balance and not be too jokey but they did get the serious info out there as well.

Yes. I also think Victoria O'Byrne has a lot to do with the relaunch as well. I'm also grateful to whoever realised that they spent the whole of the first lockdown crammed in opposite a door and moved them over a bit.

I think as long as they strike a balance, which in this case they did IMO, they’ll be fine.

I like the humor. I suspect a lot of people need some humor these days too. It’s been a long year. It’s good that they can laugh at themselves- and each other IMO.

A light hearted article about the Cambridges cooking with members of the Sikh community who prepare meals for vulnerable families:

Quote:
The Duchess of Cambridge has revealed how much she loves cooking curry – but the Duke complained that the dishes were too hot for him.
The couple tried their hand at making chapatis with a Sikh community group in Edinburgh on Monday – with mixed results – before helping box up curry and rice for delivery to vulnerable families.
"I love curry… not too spicy," the Duke said.
When his wife was asked whether she made curry at home, she replied: "Yes, I love it." The Duke laughed and said: "She likes a bit of spice. I'm not too good with spice."

Their new social media is tragic I am sorry but there was no information whatsoever on the people they met, why they met them, what the charity do etc (for the Turning Point, it looks like they changed and managed for Sikh Sanjog)... The train tour was much better when it comes to actual substance and really struck the perfect balance between information/cute moment on social media. There is also no consistency between Twitter and IG. I hope they get it right for the next tour because this is really not working. Also, was the YT channel only for the Hold still phone call? They didn't repost the Nursing Now address that Catherine did, nothing from the past few days for William etc It is really bizarre. Also they need to stop deleting and reposting! Just edit!

I've seen couple of fan accounts make better (informative and fun captions) post than KP just few minutes after (if not before) KP post it using what they got from RR social media.

Most (if not all) of the engagement are planned so they know where they'll go, what they'll do, and who they'll meet beforehand. They can prepare the draft of the captions (all basic information: what, who, where) and someone can proof-read it first, so if they need to post real time, once the photos of the engagement are available they can just copy-paste it (make some correction or add tidbit from the engagement if necessary). Their deleting-reposting (particularly on twitter) is unnecessary and avoidable (it's embarrassing and unprofessional).

That's what I did for my field report/paperworks when I still worked in the field. Pre-filled all known information so I could just add what I got later, hence less time to spend in the field post-job and less silly mistake such as typo on the header etc (since it's pre-filled and checked beforehand).

Today in Orkney a little boy asked a Catherine question.
Quote:
“Are you the Prince?” “I’m not the Prince, no, I’m the Duchess of Cambridge.” Very sweet kids meeting William and Kate at the European Marine Energy Centre in Orkney today:

not sure where you've seen this but there's plenty of videos of kate speaking in public out there. her recorded videos also show a very confident catherine.

It's interesting the plaque at the hospital opening refers to them as "Their Graces The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge " and not " Their Royal Highnesses" anyone know why?

Possibly because of this:

Edit: Wikipedia comes through. ""Your Grace" is also an alternative style for the Archbishops of Canterbury and York in the Church of England and the Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland".

So it does have to do with this specific role.

More wiki: "When the Princess Royal was appointed in 1996, she was styled as "Her Grace" for the duration rather than her normal dynastic style "Her Royal Highness" because the Lord High Commissioner is ranked higher in the order of precedence."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were (sporty) in West Sands Beach, St Andrews, and visited St Andrews University today, May 26.

In the evening they hosted NHS Staff at a drive-in cinema for a screening of Disney’s Cruella at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

Is it a Scottish thing? "Your Grace" was used in both England and Scotland until Henry VIII decided that he wanted to be "Your Majesty" to show that he was head of the Church and the universe and so on and so forth :-) , and "Your Royal Highness" wasn't used anywhere at that time, but Scotland stuck with "Your Grace".

Non royal Dukes are still "Your Grace" aren't they? And Archbishops. It might be as Yukari says because William is acting as Lord High Commissioner. I can't find any info on whether it's a Scottish style instead of HRH. I think PC is still referred to as HRH when he's DoR.

They look like they're having fun on the beach.

I believe it was explained elsewhere that they used "Your Grace" because of William being the Lord High Commissioner of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland.

Really lovely to see the Duke and Duchess back in St Andrew's today.

The royal couple also paid a nice friendly visit to Pittenweem.

I assume there are no requirements to keep your distance anymore in Scotland? If there are, it seems better that the royal family refrains from visiting public locations to avoid people gathering closely together as happened today.
