I'm glad more responsibility are being handed down to Catherine.

Why couldn't Kate present the Ladies champion trophy like the Duchess of Kent used to do? If the All England Club has grass roots tennis programs that could be something else Kate could do sort of how William helps promote grass roots soccer with The FA.

She'll have a role to play. The Queen just wasn't active in her role as patron.

Exactly and it is about time a Royal who loves the game passionately becomes the Royal Patron of Wimbledon. I think we'll be surprised by what Catherine will bring to the role, simply because Her Majesty is not a Tennis Fan and in turn, IMHO, this is one of her Patron of an Organization that when people think of Britain, they think of... Patronages. Which is no slam against Her Majesty, as we have all had to take things on we were bored to tears over simply because it was the right thing to do. Like when she turned up for Andy Murray's Semi Final a few years ago. I'm sure Her Majesty felt she like she was watching paint dry, but she was there to cheer on Andy and if she hadn't, the uproar would have been huge.

I hope what I'm trying to say is getting across.

One thing I'd love to see Catherine do, is attend some of the Paralympic Wheelchair matches. Not many know they also take part in the Grand Slams as well. Unless you follow Paralympic Sport that is. Her attendance at those matches would also bring the Press and in turn...Win Win IMO!!!

We'll have to wait and see, but I do think we'll be surprised to see what direction Catherine takes this in.

I also hope any of that made sense. I always watch as much live coverage from the Aussie Open that I can, but w/a Canadian in the mix!?! To say I'm Sleep Deprived is a huge understatement ATM!!

I, too, think Kate will make an excellent patron for this. As she is to take over the Queen's role, I'm sure that she will eager to do all she can. One thing I do expect her to do though is respect the standing that the current President, the Duke of Kent holds. Kate just seems the type to be more apt to work with someone rather than just take over a top spot. For all we know, the DoK may actually welcome someone younger taking the reins more and more.

With all of Harry's focus on wounded service personnel and Kate's emphasis on youth, in the future it would be really nice to see more and more focus put on sports and disabilities and grass roots programs as a whole. Champions are to be found in every level and should be celebrated.

I'm so glad to see that the Queen is turning over these patronages to the younger generation, What I'm exceedingly glad of is that they are being turned over to someone who actually loves the sports they will be patronizing. Yes, Wimbledon screams Kate, just like rugby with William and Harry.

The Duchess of Cambridge is to visit the America's Cup base of sailing champion Sir Ben Ainslie to see how youngsters are being inspired to join the marine industry.

In her role as royal patron of the 1851 Trust, a charity set up as part of the Ben Ainslie Racing (BAR) effort to win the prestigious racing tournament, Kate will launch two initiatives aimed at involving children and young adults from diverse backgrounds in sailing and the technology of the sport.

It will be the third time that the duchess has visited the BAR base in Portsmouth, having dropped by before the centre was opened and again during the first round of the America's Cup World Series which was held in the city last July before being cut short by heavy winds and rain.

I wonder if we will see a resurgence in sailing in the BRF with the Cambridges. DoE and Anne seem to be the last sailors in the family and it hasn't been an active interest passed on to the next generation. Maybe in a few years we will see the Cambridges at Cowes Week

Catherine have a big interest in sailing. Zara too, so I think the interest will now be passed down.

Olympic sailing champion Sir Ben Ainslie shows the Duchess of Cambridge around the Portsmouth base of his bid for the America's Cup.



Olympic sailing champion Sir Ben Ainslie lets the Duchess of Cambridge take the helm of his catamaran for a training circuit in the Solent.
