If that's the case... their work behind the scenes is a lot more comprehensive than they get credit for, and the Royal Foundation will be interesting to watch in the coming years.
I'm in full agreement with you.

I saw a snippet of her speech at the addiction place and it was very good. Only problem was her flipping her head to get her hair out of the way, every few words.

Caring Kate's heart goes out to children | Royal | News | Daily Express

This is an interesting article in that it gives some backround as to (perhaps) how Catherine got involved through charitable work done by her parents company. It is information that I hadn't read about before.

Great article- Love the pics here!
I find the expression on the little boy's face in the 3rd pic hysterical!

How delightful! Again, not at all surprising, because it's Catherine.

I am disappointed with how few organisations kate is involved with so far, 92 year old Prince Philip is patrron of over 800 organisations! Hopefully the younger royals will continue to take on more responsibilities and ease the burden on the older royals.

We have to take into consideration too that Philip has been a full time working royal for as long as his wife has been on the throne. That's 61 years now. Kate's a part time royal. If the Firm is happy with things the way they are, I can't complain.

I completely agree that Kate is a new royal and Philip has been around for decades, but I think she is capable of doing much much more. i don't want to sound like one of the Waity Kate bashers on here but I think if she was more like Princess Anne (or even the Queen!) then she would be even more popular.

Probably in the not-too-distant future the Queen and DoE won't be around any more - and there will suddenly be a massive void in the royal workload - over 1000 organisations no longer with Royal patrons, and hundreds of fewer engagements being carried out. The Queen's children are working at full capacity but the younger 3 could be doing much more. I guess we will have to wait and see what happens in the next few years after the baby comes along.

Another solution could be for Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie to be on the royal payroll, but that doesn't seem to be an option.

She is doing much more. She's about to provide the House of Windsor with an heir to the throne. I would bet though that by the time she is as old as the Princess Royal, she'll have a workload as heavy if not heavier. She'll be Queen Consort long before that.

The Duchess of Cambridge's royal duties will increase over time. Can't really compare her to the veteran royals.

We have to remember that The Queen & Duke of Edinburgh's and other royals official duties also increased over time back in the day. They didn't start out with hundreds of charities and hundreds of official duties. It's a gradual process that takes years to develop.

Catherine will be adding more charitable patronages to her list as time goes on.

I also believe that the decision to continue with their patronages needs to be made by HM and the DoE. They'll retire when they are ready.

It might be a sign she's going to have some visits to her charities in the near future.

Fantastic. Always look forward to engagements with Catherine and children. They are always magical occasions.
