Promoting scouting is a wonderful idea, especially in light of the childhood obesity epidemic.
But why would she be a patron if the Queen is already a patron? Or can organizations have more than one royal patron?

She's not a patron- she's going to be a volunteer. She's a patron of the other four charities that were named.

I was one of those people who had not a bad scouting experience but just boring and uninspiring. Now that I am twenty.....um I mean older; I look back and think that I would have liked to do ballet, but little me probably would have disliked it. I don't think it is fair to say someone's fears of pedophilia would be better directed towards pageants; any organizations with children is in danger of attracting those who have sinister motives. I remember a few years ago in the states the media was obsessed with attractive female teachers having affairs with their students. I am one of the few who would be happy with whatever Kate chose because volunteering of any kind is good imo. But from the little I have seen Kate choosing art, addiction, and scouting has roots in her personal history.

I like the selection of charities, and am particularly impressed with Action on Addiction. It is a very brave choice for someone new. The charities appear very well thought-out, reflective of her interests and they complement William's patronages.

As for the background check: I'm sure it's just formality and she'll pass with flying colors. The British tabloids have been background checking her to the nth degree for years and the worst they could do was find a drug-using uncle and a mother who chewed gum.

this is a great mix of patronages for kate. i liked how she chose small organisations, rather than going for patronages to big organisms.

i can't wait to see her working with them. i guess this will mean that she may start assuming her role solo in the near future than wait for the year they announced earlier (if i well remember it was announced it would take at least a year for her to start her engagements)

some more info on how kate chose her patronages and the next steps of her work with the chosen organisations from the EACH press release:

"The Duchess of Cambridge began her private research into charitable causes
in September 2011. The private programme undertaken by The Duchess
consisted of meetings at St. James’s Palace and private visits to a number of
sites. In addition, The Duchess personally considered all requests for
Patronage that were sent to her.
• The Duchess will, over the coming months, undertake both private and public
visits across the United Kingdom to the organisations of which she is Patron
and Royal Patron."

Does anyone know what Catherine is doing now? Are there any pictures of her visiting her charities? Things seem to be quiet at the moment.

So far no informations about her engagements. I think she would do something when William will be abroad. At least I hope that she'll do something.

Thanks for the article, ghost_night . I'm really excited to find out what organizations she'll choose to support. Great news indeed.

THE Duchess of Cambridge has been secretly volunteering for the Scouts since Christmas, helping to teach youngsters skills like putting up tents and lighting fires.

Obviously she started her volonteer work with the Scouts in Anglesey.

Kate is a quiet force indeed while using her influence to effect positive changes, even as a volunteer.

Are kids joining because Kate has brought attention to Scouts, or are kids joining hoping to meet Kate?

I don't mean to be cynical, just a thought that popped in my head.

I'm sure there are some who joined for either reason. Would be curious to know the numbers, though I doubt anyone will ever know.

I had the same thought. Material may have been published that shows Catherine promoting the scouts, but I haven't seen any. Nor have we seen her doing any engagements for her patronage. I'm leaning towards the latter.

In order to give youngsters some credit, I would hope that they are joining the scouts because because the organisation has been highlighted recently (possibly in part by Catherine's involvment).

But Scouting is not one of her patronages, so I doubt she would be doing engagements on their behalf. Her participation with the scouts is as a volunteer, so very few pictures, if any.
