What do you comment about William and most especially, Kate's work ethic?

katemiddletons:

I’m just gonna redirect you to this post which was submitted to me about six months ago:

"Charles has 500 engagements now, but it didn’t happen over night. On Charles and Diana 3rd year of marriage, Charles had 93 and Diana had 51 number of engagements: http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0„20089686,00.html. William last year had 88 while Kate had 111. IMO, that is a pretty darn good numbers considering that William also had a full-time job, and it was Kate’s first full-year as a royal. It is unfair to be comparing WK number of engagements to 1) already well-established royals who have been cultivating their skills for years, 2) royals whose children are all grown - no longer needing nappies/diapers change or milk-feeding, 3) royals whose house-whole have already been long established. If you look back at the number of engagements of all the royals when they first got married/had babies/just establishing themselves, all of them are pretty low so I don’t know why you are just fussing over WK.”

They just came back from a three week tour, William has two engagements in the next three days and they’re coming to Scotland on the 29th. I don’t know what you’re messaging me about because they’re putting in the hours not to mention the great amount of preparation that goes behind the scenes with the charities and that we have no idea about. They’re also raising George, who mind you is a baby and moms can stay in paid maternity leave for up to a year in the UK which Kate is not doing.

I wish people should stop complaining tbh. You lose focus on the amount of attention and money they bring to the charities and the difference they make if all you care about is what stylists she wears and how they don’t match your standards or how many times she goes shopping or how “lazy” they are.

Royal Fandom Selfie Night

crazyforcambridge:

This is probably WAY too sappy, but I need to just say a couple things.

To the wonderful soul whose idea tonight was, to all the BEAUTIFUL ladies (and gentlemen!) who posted selfies, and to those of you who reblogged mine with such kind comments, thank you.

I come on here to indulge myself. To…

^^^^^^thiiia

Totally forgot selfie night until 5 am. Feeling really old, as I looked for one in my phone only to discover that the ONLY proper selfie buried in 6,000 pics was with my mom and sisters, so I had to awkwardly crop them out! Now that is sad!

Can I just say that I LOVED seeing everyone all at once?! What a cool/freaky feeling to see us as a group of actual people!!!!!

Photographer John Stillwell, who has captured many of the key stages of George’s life so far, said: “He was very lively, very confident and very sure of himself.

"He’s a very determined young boy.

"And who does he look like? I’d have to say his dad, William.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will on Tuesday hold a party for George at their Kensington Palace apartment.

But it won’t be a big affair.

A palace spokeswoman said: “The family are going to be marking the event privately with close family and friends.”
