Heartwarming to see so many paying their respects to Sarah including the future Queen of the UK, but heartbreaking because of her death.

Apparently, the police tried to break up the service.

Royal sources have "let it be known" that the Duchess of Cambridge remembers what it was like to be a lone woman walking round London. That's a big gesture of solidarity from Catherine. Practically every woman in the country, and every country, knows that horrible feeling of wondering if it's OK to walk home when it's dark, and which route to take, and, even if it's light, being nervous if there aren't many other people around, and panicking if you hear footsteps behind you.

I love her gesture and the dignity and empathy that it shows. Day after day I like Catherine more and more.

I appreciate the solidarity. Each of us knows what it feels like to hear, "Don't walk home alone, find another way" and the fear and desire to scream, "What other way? Do you think I would have gone for walking alone in the dark if there *were* another way?" It's so nice to see that a woman who is literally protected all the time gets it.

That and telling your other friends to call/text you when they get home or having them tell you to do so.

Wonderful gesture from her.

So William got a write up in The Times a couple of weeks ago, now it's Kate's turn. I think this is one of the least expected Kate Mock ups I've ever seen:

Is Kate Middleton The Real Royal Revolutionary?

Thank you Heavs for sharing The Sunday Times article!

Apart from comparing The Duchess of Cambridge to a revolutionary activist, I thought the article was well-written touching on some important royal engagements. She is not remotely a "revolutionist" let alone a progressive/socialist activist.

I agree with Tony Allen-Mills, the author of the article that Catherine managed to support mental health, early childhood and even women empowerment without being controversial or even "preachy" agenda-driven. Allen-Mills also raised some good points on whether Catherine will be more "daring/pushing the envelop" or conforming to "smile and silent" when she becomes Queen Consort.

I hope we will see the Duchess in public again soon. It has been 2 months since her last public engagement.

We should see her starting public engagements (complying with any restrictions) soon. This time of the year we really notice a slowing down of engagements are the BRF take their summer time off. We usually refer to this time as the "silly season" because with the royals away on private time, all kinds of nonsense stories fill up the pages of the tabloids.

The Duchess of Cambridge visited RAF Brize Norton, Oxfordshire today, September 15, and met a number of those who supported the UK's evacuation of civilians from Afghanistan.

Worthy engagement, IMO. Welcoming back the troops who were at the front end of this evacuation.

Definitely a worthy engagement. Those troops deserve a lot of recognition for what they did.

It's also a high profile military one for Kate to undertake alone.

More about the visit:

Kate Middleton Had "Very Personal" Discussions With Those Who Assisted in the Afghanistan Evacuation

Quote:
(...)

Wing Commander Kevin Latchman, who flew three planes out of Kabul, also met the Duchess. “It was fantastic to be honest. The operation itself is a brilliant example of when we all come together, what we can deliver. And the fact that’s been recognized on the royal level, is brilliant and it was lovely to meet the Duchess of Cambridge, very personable and clearly very interested in what we did,” he said.*

(...)

He described the Duchess as “very sympathetic, and she wanted to know exactly what were the reactions of the people coming on board.” Sgt Mark Curtis, who was in charge of the evacuees on the plane, described the experience as “humbling.”(...)

Of meeting Kate, he added, “To meet the Duchess and for her to be so interested in and engaged with our stories was, was brilliant. We’re serving our queen, our country, the royal family. And obviously to have that level of, the boss coming along and, and patting you on your back for the hard work was amazing.”
