I agree and this is also an issue that Camilla has been championing at home in the UK and around the world.

kate seems like such an authentic person. i don't see a trace of 'kate the princess', but just kate in her most authentic state, when i watch those videos. she is unassuming, humble and genuinely seems to care about the people who she speaks to.

good sartorial choices in that she chose demure, leg covering dresses to visit conservative india.

wow - i am surprised about a couple of things:

i am surprised to see kate's staff themselves always carrying luggage around. i would have thought someone else did the unloading for them. maybe they just carried what they needed for the first day?

i also got surprised to see that kate's assistant, rebecca, has an assistant of her own, sophie. i wonder how tasks are delegated between them two... sophie is always seen on tour with the cambridges, so my guess is that she is a more junior assistant to kate, really?

Why would they want strangers handling the Royal luggage? It would be a security risk. Say Natasha is carrying a box with £10K of jewelry in it, it not leaving her sight. Remember Canada and the bomb sifting dogs with the luggage on the Tarmac in Calgary.

I think the reason would be that this is a week long tour and a very hectic one at that. Even with the overloaded schedule that W&K have, their staff cannot work 24/7 and have hours off and I would imagine Rebecca and Sophie share the workload. To be personally responsible for a person and their belongings and whatever else is involved can be quite stressful and they need time to breathe.

Handling the royal couple's belongings themselves assure them that nothing is amiss and everything is in place. I also agree with the point that someone else handling the luggage can be a security risk. They probably check and double check to make sure they have everything.

This has been an amazing tour so far. William & Catherine not only appear to be enjoying themselves, but everyone has welcomed them with open arms. They are doing an amazing job.

Rebecca and Miguel are with William and Kate while they are doing their engagements. So they aren't lugging the bags behind the scenes. The pictures show that most of what they where carrying was William's. There is a W on the suit bag that Sophie is carrying.

parts of british media are not happy with the sugary coverage while brushing the brutal colonial history between the two countries under the carpet

as much as I too dislike sugary article to cover "misfits" of the couple, i fail to see what W&K has to do with the past. It's not their fault, and the colonial history can't be undone. If they want to report on something crical or negative that the press has witnessed or that has happened fine, but this topic seems to pop up whenever there is aroyal tour in former colonial countries.

I agree. It's not their fault and they can't do anything about it!

I'm not saying I don't understand them though, as their suffered past can't be ignore and still bear the consequences, but I think the press should vent out their anger for the imperial times in other contenxts

Yes, ofc I can understand it. But it's like when Crown Princess Victoria was with a holocaust survivor and a reporter asked her about her nazi grandfather. It's just not something she can do anything about and shouldn't have to answer for.

Is the UK press or the Indian press writing these stories.? We know the UK press has an axe to grind with the Cambridges.
