Kate's Letter for Children's Hospice Week + Giveaway

Monday, May 11, 2015

Today marks the start of Children's Hospice Week. Kate has supported this week of awareness for a number of years. She released her first recorded video plea in 2013, while pregnant with Prince George, on behalf of Children's Hospice Week, in addition to making a public engagement on April 29th at Naomi House, also to aid the appeal.  

Kate Appearing on Behalf of CHildren's Hospice Week in 2013

This year, Kate is ensconced at Anmer Hall, bonding with Princess Charlotte and playing with George, but the Duchess released a short letter in which she urged the public to keep in mind the valuable work that the many children's hospices provide to suffering families. 



Kate chose not to release any photo to accompany the letter, although this is likely because there was no accompanying event. Given she has been on maternity leave for over a month, and will continue to be so for several more, I think there has been little opportunity for a private visit. Princess Charlotte has changed the royal schedule this year, but I expect we will see Kate even more prominently next year during this charitable drive. 



Sky has released an interview with Prince Harry in which he discussed Princess Charlotte's birth:
"I didn't see any coverage [of the Lindo Wing presentation] at all," he said. "[William] sent me two photos; one before everybody else, which was nice, and then another - one with her back with George back home. So, as I said, I'm so looking forward to seeing her, to meeting her and to holding her.
"She was a little bit late, hence I missed her. So she'll have to work on that! But apart from that, it's fantastic news for both of them. So I'm thrilled."
Since Harry confirmed that Kate was late, I suspect for some time they had been expecting his visit to London to happen right after the little princess was born. Babies have their own timing, and I am sure Kate, William, and Harry were as disappointed as anyone that Harry missed seeing Charlotte. It sounds like he is getting plenty of behind-the-scenes photos. I have to say, we still haven't seen any photos of George being held by anyone but his parents, his nanny, and Prince Charles. I am looking forward to some shots of both Uncle Harry and Mamma Middleton and Mike Middleton holding George and Charlotte.

I am excited to say that I am hosting a giveaway over at Kate's Clothes. To celebrate Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana Cambridge, I chose one of G. H. Hurt & Son's beautiful baby blankets. The piece has some fun royal history and would be a great gift for friends, or something to wrap up your own little one.  Pop on over to Kate's Clothes to enter! 



I snuck away this weekend for a little break, and so I apology for the short post and the lack of attention to the comment section. Tomorrow, I will be back in full-swing. I would like to point out that FBTB's comment section is not an open forum. The fact is, there are many places to voice discontent, but this space is for fans. Many of us come here for polite conversation and debate, but the common thread is an admiration for the Duchess of Cambridge. Very negative attitudes about Kate clearly upset this demographic, and since I maintain this blog for the purposes of enjoyment, I try not to approve comments that are nasty toward other readers or overly critical about Kate. Even if you do not agree with this policy, hopefully you see the logic behind it.  I have been distracted, but I will be moderating with renewed attention from now on. 

59 comments:

  1. Love the pic with George and the Nanny. Thank you for the comments regarding the negative posts. Forgive me if I too posted anything negative in defense of Kate and some others that comment. I do try to rein it all in but ...well.. sometimes I do slip. I am referring to the post prior to this one. If I did 'strike back' my apologies. I just do not understand why anyone would follow this page or Kate and be so negative.

    1. Nina, I think many of us are in the same situation and we understand. It is so very difficult to come here and see a person you admire and think is doing a good job as a wife, mother and in representing the Monarchy as she is asked and not "fight back" so to speak when she, her husband, family and the BRF are attacked. IMHO those who attack her are just rabble-rousers.

    2. I love this picture also. I have read many comments that she seems too stern and rigid but this picture shows she absolutely loves her job and obviously adores PG. It is a delightful picture to see.

  2. Hey Jane, first time posting! Love the blog :)
    Where is this picture of PG and nanny from?
    Also did you see the daily mail article on Carole taking up residence at Anmer and Michael not being too happy? What are your opinions on this?
    Thanks! Hannah

    1. I have read that article and had a good laugh. I do not think it is at all true! When I read this my first reaction was how they could know anything about the inside of Amer Hall such as where the dog leads are hung or that there is a party planned with all the intricate details when Kate is just one week postpartum. I think it is a total product of the authors very overactive imagination. More of a piece of fiction vs factual reporting that most people expect from a newspaper.

      Delete
    2. I have heard that Carole has been seen in Buckleburry several time over the past week.

      Delete
    3. Correct Anon 4:47pm, over the weekend there were reports of Carole in Buckleberry. While I do believe that Carole probably takes a very hands-on approach when visiting W&K, I don't think it is that extreme.

      Delete
  3. Another great post Jane.

    @Hannah. I think that this stuff about Carole is just not true. The media do not like her for whatever reason. Right now there is no reason for her to be with W&K now. William is off until June 1st and they have the nanny. Maybe once William returns to his training then she will come to help. People don't realize she has a business to run. And the stuff about Michael being unhappy again in my opinion is just trash. They have been married for over 30 y s.
    Or I could be completely wrong...lol

    1. It isnt the media it is the Daily Mail. It is the only paper in the UK that prints this sort of rubbish. US papers may copy it.

      In the same paper it said that Carole was in Bucklebury, at the pub the evening before. She is obviously capable of being in 2 places at once! And DM reporters dont even read their own paper's articles.

      Just tosh

      Delete
    2. William has engagements scheduled for May. Even without those, I do think Carole is there to help, like a lot of Grandmas would. William had time off right after George was born and they still decamped to Buckleberry. They are family.

      What I don't think is true is the claim that Michael is upset, etc. I actually like the Middleton parents more than W&K, lol! I think they raised a nice family, had a happy marriage, and just are nice people. I have read many articles with quotes from people that give their real names and they have nothing but wonderful things to say about Carole and Michael.

      I think Carole is probably offering Kate sound advice on running two large households. I don't think she has "taken over" their houses, but gives a lot of help. I think Carole offers maturity, common sense, and guidance that W&K need.

  4. Thank you Jane for this great post. I know how busy you must be with two fantastic websites to manage, but I will be happy when you can exercise your own brand of gentle moderating of the comment thread. I have left another blog completely because I couldn't handle the negativity. It's not that I don't think people should have the right to express their own thoughts and opinions, but I too have a busy life, and I come here to engage with fellow fans of the Duchess and her family. I find that some of the same people post their negative suppositions here as well as there and I just wish they would keep it to one and not drag it over to the other. You have stated this is a fan blog. Fair enough. I'm all for that. I do find the discussions about the BRF history and hopes for the future of the monarchy thought provoking. But I just don't think it's fair to judge Duchess Cambridge on her mothering skills, her duty, loyalty or love for her mother, or on whether she works enough.

    PS: JC - please come back.

    1. I am in total agreement with you Jane in Canada on your points. I think there are a number of us prefer to be here because of the negativity found on other blogs. It has been so nice to see other positive posters find this site.

    2. @Jane in Canada. I never left; I have the deplorable habit of skipping some posts, when the subject doesn't particularly interest me, plus, I needed a bit of time out to regroup. (I apparently went OTT recently, as my personality constantly leads my brain astray--and to a different Jane, I stand corrected.)

      I just want to say that I appreciate Kate's ongoing, and unflagging, support of EACH, and of any and apparently all--remember her support for a sister children's hospice in her tour of South-East Asia?--world-wide children's care centres. There couldn't be a better cause, altho some might equal it, and it must be hard on her, at this stage in her life, with two very young children--surely, she must occasionally think: *What if it happens to my kids?* Don't we all?

      JC

      P.S. I would suggest, in a follow-up to a remark in your post, that Kate works her ass off, behind the scenes; it can't be easy, particularly in a class-conscious society like Great Britain, to find yourself, an upper-middle class young woman, catapulted into three classes above your own ( bypassing landed gentry, aristocracy and landing in royalty, and not just become the spouse of some insignificant royal like Prince Michael or Prince Edward, but no, she had to go and marry a future king! Imagine the psychological impact, the number of slights she has had to swallow from *her betters*. OK, now I need an ice bag, some aspirin, and a stiff drink.

    4. JC, I'm glad you're sticking around. :) That's an excellent point you brought up about how difficult it must be for Kate. To be honest, I never thought much about it. After all, Kate got HER future king fair and square. :)))

      But I suspect William is well aware of it and perhaps it contributes to his determination to do what's right for his family.

      Delete
    5. .Yeah, I suspect that William was aware of it long before Kate was; I rather think that Kate met him, fell in love with him, and with rose-coloured glasses firmly in place, expected a normal (marriage and kids) happy ending--which, hopefully, she got, but not without struggle.

    The picture of prince george with his nanny is just too cute! I hope that he gets on very well with his sister (and that we'll get some cute photos of them together)

    I can only imagine that Harry is already really curious to meet his new niece - maybe he'll also be in one of the photos they'll release??


    I read somewhere that Kate and William will possibly undertake a royal tour in the carribean in the spring of 2016... (And, that they'll probably take George & Charlotte with them - just like in New Zealand and Australia) Could these rumors be true? What do you think?

    IMO, it would be so great to see George and Charlotte on a royal tour! (Even if it might be more stressful for the Cambridges and the nanny...) I hope that it's true :)

    By the way, I absolutely LOVE the peach outfit on Kate! It looks great with her tanned skin and her brown hair and highlights that special 'glow' pregnant women are always said to have. I wish she would have recycled it during her pregnancy with charlotte... maybe with Baby Cambridge Number 3 (if there'll be one)? I hope so ;)

    1. I definitely think we will see W&K on a tour once she is done with mat leave. It seems to be expected of senior royals. It would be nice to see the kids, I just think it depends on the length of the tour and how they think they can mitigate good opportunities for two young toddlers/babies.

  12. Appreciate the firm stand. As you said, Jane, this is a fan site. Not an open forum.
    Criticism based on rumor and speculation that sometimes
    morphs into quotable "fact" will hopefully be screened- or better yet, not posted-while information from KP, CH, and non-tabloid sources will form
    the basis for opinion.
    Yes, fans are allowed to be critical; but there is a world of difference between " perhaps another shade of green would be more flattering"and " she has no taste-she needs a stylist." The last is a personal attack. If it is difficult for some one to tell the diference, perhaps this blog is not the one for you.
    There is also a world of difference between calling another poster's comments ignorant or nonsense ( personal reference) and saying, " I would disagree-this is why" -and then quote reliable sources, such as mentioned above.
    There is a difference between fact and conjecture: Statements that include:" everybody knows; all the mainstream media report, it is well known" etc. usually involve conjecture.
    There is a difference between fact and opinion: "She looks lovely or horrible in that outfit" are opinion and should be noted as
    such-many use IMO or IMHO;" the dress was designed by Cutie Patootie of the House of Cards, according to their PR office."
    is an example of a form for a factual statement.
    Jane, I hope I havent over-stepped my blogger's rights. I realise it sounds "preachy." I wrote it because I sincerely believe
    there may be those who are unsure just what specifically is allowed or have not commented on a true fan site before.
    There is so much loose talk on the so-called "social media" that it is easy to get carried away in the cover of supposed
    anonymity.I really don't think there is always malicious intent.
    JMHO
    I just spent over an hour of time I don't have to write this, as this is very important to me.This blog is important to me, and others, not just because of who you are, Jane, but also because this blog and several others represent a chance for internet conversation that is both kind and stimulating.

  16. Jane,
    Thank you so much for pointing out the ethos of this site. Most of us come here because we admire Catherine.and like to hear about her and her children as well as the work she does and what she wears.
    Much of what is printed in many newspapers is pure conjecture at the very least and should be taken with a very large pinch of salt.
    Of course, over the next few months, we will not be seeing her so much--- but just now her two little ones must be her first concern.
    I note that the government of Canada has given Princess Charlotte a gift of $100.000 of vaccines--presumably for children in the third world.

  17. Faith from BBostonMay 13, 2015 at 9:32 AM

    Since the topic of negativity on this site has been broached, I'd like to add my perspective. I've been a reader of this blog for several years and have been posting
    comments for over a year. I agree with
    Jane that certain topics and the way in
    which those topics tend to be discussed
    never ends well.
    However, quite often I have seen posters go after
    other posters who have simply stated that
    they did
    not like a particular outfit, or they had wished Kate
    had done something another way. Somehow,
    difference of opinion or perspective is
    being
    interpreted as "Kate bashing" or being
    negative. I
    think we saw examples of this when Kate left the hospital. Some posters said
    they did not like her dress etc or that they had wished K&W had talked to the press.
    Some comments to those post
    were very
    strongly worded even to the point of
    suggesting that the posts be deleted and
    that the "offending" posters post
    elsewhere. For me, that was a more
    unpleasant barrage of negativity to read than the original post. I think we all need to
    remember that this is an internationally
    read blog and posters come from all
    different points of view, and those points
    of view are valid and interesting. If someone prefers one outfit or hairstyle over another that is not Kate bashing. If people were disappointed that W and K did not talk to the press and said so in a respectful way, that is not being negative. If this becomes a comment section to simply laud and adore the DoC, it will be very dull reading indeed.

    1. I am a little confused that there seems to be an attitude that I have changed the comment section policy, but I have only reminded/reiterated the operating rules we have had in place for some years. Disagreement is still more than welcome, but as always I ask that you express yourselves politely--not taking advantage of the faceless nature of internet forums--and that underlining your comments is a respect for Kate. I don't want trolls here, people who are surfing the web looking to express contempt or any other ugly emotion toward Kate, her family, or the fans on this blog. Many of the comments I am thinking of have never actually been published here, since I stop them in the moderating queue and delete them. For those comments that have gone live with no objectionable material, I just ask that everyone personally keep in mind that discussion must be professional. No ad hominem attacks, and the like.
      Hope that clears it up. :)

      Delete
    2. Interesting comment, Faith. Please do not assume the remarks I am going to make directly refer to you. It is obvious
      to me you care about this blog and its future.I believe you are committed to at least one other Kate blog, so you
      understand blog mechanics.
      Yes, RESPECT is the key- not only of fellow commenters, but also of the royal family,,
      William and Catherine, and the Middletons. It doesn't make sense to me to be kind and understanding to fellow
      commenters, whilst making inconsiderate remarks about the subject of this blog and her family-there is a difference between constructive criticism and personal attack; between conjecture and opinion.Stimulating conversations don't always, maybe ever, have to descend into bitter arguments.
      Kindness and courtesy are contagious and would be a welcomed epidemic to combat the current plague of meanness
      and dis-respect.The cloak of anonymity seems to bring out the worst side of some commenters. They post things they would never say to someone's face. I notice the blogs that require a poster's identity seem more humane and kinder.
      I'm not suggesting that for this fan site. Hopefully, those who value Jane's hard work and financial support so
      that we have a place to share our praise AND kind, considerate suggestions about and for Catherine -perhaps those
      commenters will stay and if that format is not one's cup of tea,well...

      Delete
    3. Faith, most folks would not object to someone saying they "wished" they had spoken to the press. That is an opinion and it is as neutral as it gets. What does qualify as bashing, however, is when someone accuses W&K of not going along with the program after their office "requested" microphones. One commenter went so far as to say it was "typical of William." And I was beginning to think someone would call Child Protective Services because Kate sat in the front of the car with William while (presumably) the nanny sat in the back with the children. Some of that was hitting below the belt. It really was.

      General question here... Do you ever ask yourself what motivates people to post on a Kate blog? Are they interested and approaching it from a positive, respectful point of view (towards Kate AND the moderator who doesn't just twitch her nose and create a post...it takes time and effort), or do they bring negativity (persistent in some cases) to the mix and enjoy seeing the reactions of others?

      If I was in Jane's position and devoted my time and effort to a subject I (obviously) enjoy, I wouldn't post some of the comments I've seen on the internet. Why? Not exactly a "thank you, well done!", is it? :)

      Delete
  18. Hello everybody! I certainly did not intend for my comment to cause any controversy, and I'm afraid I didn't express myself well because Ive always understood and respected Jane's ground rules. Jane, I understand you've just been reiterating your expectations and I have no problem with that. Mkleinfeldt and royalfan, what I was trying to say, obviously not very well, is that there is a group of posters that swoop down upon opinions and observations different than their own. If one
    criticizes (respectfully) Kate's outfit, that's Kate
    hating. If one thinks she could have done something
    differently then that's being negative. I feel that if
    Jane publishes a comment, it is suitable and
    shouldn't be condemned by those who don't like it. I
    love discussion and disagreement but don't think
    that comments that have been published should be
    branded as being negative. In a way, all of this culminated on the steps of the Lindo Wing. I know we were all over excited and emotional but posters who critical of anything were suddenly Kate bashers. So, since we were discussing negativity, I thought Id bring up that perspective on the subject.

    "Please do not assume the remarks I am going to make directly refer to you." Your remarks did not "cause" anything .
    I think my remarks, as well as royalfan's
    comments, if completely read and thought about, are clear. It is not always the specific criticism that is in question ; it is rather the WAY in which it is said. I have stressed this. Others have.
    Re: comments on the last thread were approved by Jane and are therefore beyond question-those who read her post will understand that she apologized for
    taking a break from moderating. She apparently did not read all the posts, although I know she read some.
    As far as I'm concermed, she deserves at least a month off. It is a shame that her fan readers haven't moderated themselves.
    I've said what I meant to say and appreciate the support I have received.
    I am ready to move on.

Debate is welcome, direct and personal insults are not. Topics we tend to avoid here: "does Kate work enough?" and "Is Kate too skinny?" Everything is subject to approval.

I (Jane Barr) moderate all comments. If a comment is live, I approved it. If you find something offensive, or think my approval was an error, please email me at princesskateblog(at)gmail.com.

At times, an acceptable comment just goes missing. If you felt your comment should have been approved, but did not show up within five hours, again, pop an email to the above address.

Happy chatting!
