She really enjoyed herself on this engagement. The young royals nowadays want to be involved with their charities, rather than just showing up and shaking a hand.

She was put to work on the boat. I would enjoyed it too.

True, but the idea is to be more involved with the organizations. I like it this way, rather than just having a list of hundreds of charities that one can't be involved with.

Hopefully, she'll get George and Charlotte on the water in the future.

I look at the present now, to be honest. I think she is taking the right path with the focus on the mental health charities. I also think that she should "restrict" the field of her charities and take the lead "only" on the mental health and the palliative care for the children charities... Hopefully, she'll find her vocation....

I think she can lead on all fronts.

I know this trust is seen by many as something lightweight. And in a way it is, compared to childrens hospices and mental health. But this is not just about sailing. It's about inspiring young people to get into the STEM (Science, Technology, Engeneering, Math) subjects which will be to great use in our future. They will instead of the (sometimes rather boring) standard classes in these subjects see the actual use of it in something "cool". Instead of asking the teacher "when will I ever use this?!" as many of us have done, they are showing with a practical implication what these subjects really is about. Couple that with the focus on sustainability, and I think this is a great thing to inspire kids with.

I wanted to say that she is starting finding her way on specific charities...

She does seem to be enjoying her events ...it doesn't come across as a 'chore' or something she is just going thru the motions about. She's discreet, she's not a clothes horse, she isn't seeking attention.

I think the monarchy better thank their lucky stars William got her.

Yes, I agree. She always seems interested and involved when she is at an event.

Keeps quiet and goes about the business of going to events. Perfect fit for the BRF.

This has been my impression from the start. Catherine appears to be genuinely interested when out performing engagements.

I agree. IMHO it's no different than what I see with any of the other ladies in the BRF as they go about their engagements.
