During William and Catherine’s recent visit to Manchester, the couple were snuck into the Blue Peter studio to talk to presenters, Lindsey Russell and Radzi Chinyanganya.

They thanked the couple for bringing attention to the issue, and for helping assure children that it was ok to talk about how they were feeling, especially if they were having a problem.

Radzi mentioned that The Queen also has a golden badge from the show, the programme’s highest award, during her Golden Jubilee year in 2002. Prince William joked: “We’ll compare!”

Congrats to William and Catherine and everyone who’s involved with addressing mental health issues.

It's going to be a busy week for two of the couples who reside at Kensington Palace.

The press release says there will be "an official dinner" in Norway, so I suppose tiaras are possible.

No, the official dinner at the royal palace in Oslo will be black tie (as it was for Charles and Camilla in 2012).

I will write a long detailed post about the Norwegian part of the visit tomorrow.

BTW, the visits are being discussed in these two threads:
Duke and Duchess of Cambridge: Official Visit to Sweden - January 30-31, 2018 - The Royal Forums

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge: Official Visit to Norway - February 1-2, 2018 - The Royal Forums

I know that Swedes and Norwegians are enthusiasts of outdoor activities in the coldest weather, but is that wise with Kate so close to delivery ? She didn't grow up in that kind of climate exactly.

No, in Sweden there will just be a black tie dinner at the Residence of the British Ambassador:

That evening, The Duke and Duchess will attend a black tie dinner at the Residence of the British Ambassador, attended by members of the Swedish Royal Family, and representatives from government, and popular culture, including Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, and actors Stellan Skarsgård and Alicia Vikander.

She’s going to stand and watch people perform sports, not actually doing anything herself. I trust that she will wear appropriately warm clothes. She’s only 6 months along, hardly close to delivery.

LOL! She's only pregnant and it's not as if she shovelling snow. And she is still 3 months away from her due date, which is nowhere near delivery. Give Catherine, and for that sake, pregnant women in general a little more credit.

CP Mary and Queen Maxima managed their pregnancies very well considering neither grew up in a Scandinavian climate. Catherine will be just fine :-)

I'm looking forward to these visits. Would have been nice if they also visited Denmark again.

Not the done thing to go back to somewhere they have been until they have visited the majority of the countries (outside of Commonwealth countries) within a region e.g. Europe, that they haven't visited yet. There are exceptions of course - such as the visits that relate to the various commemorations for WWI although most of those have been to places associated with commonwealth commemorations that happen to have been in France or Belgium rather than simply a visit to those countries.

In addition the protocol is that there should be a return visit first so the Danes should make a visit to the UK before another visit by William and Kate (and no a day at the races doesn't count as that wasn't an 'official engagement as it was Ascot and only the Queen and the DoE ever visit their officially).

It seems that people are quite excited about the Cambridges too (as I already knew BTW), and not just the other two.
