She has plenty of time to practice and prepare of speaking. If she can't speak she should learn what to say.

You can't really conquer a fear unless you face it head on!
If she honestly tried to improve she might feel much better in herself.

She has no fear of:

*Grabbing after freebies
*Going on thousand mile excursions to the tropics
*Blabbing inanely about unrelated topics
*Wearing see through clothing sans panties
*Violating one round of protocol/precedence after another
*Leaking abusive lies about the aristocracy and BRF (that alone is almost treason)
*Blowing Charles' money on useless junk
*Scaring off women who might be interested in Harry, preventing Harry from developing a family life of his own
*Making loony faces at serious events or state occasions
*Skipping out on military duties and other charity work

She has no business not being ready and how long until the Queen balls up and wipes the floor with this headcase?

You can't really conquer a fear unless you face it head on!
If she honestly tried to improve she might feel much better in herself.

I think she doesn't have a fear, so much as a complete unwillingness to grow up and become an adult. She refuses to grow and she refuses to basically do her job and pick up some of the slack. I don't think she's aware of just how utterly pointless she's made of her role.

That was toe curlingly atrocious and there's absolutely no excuse for it. She's been married for almost 6 years and was plotting and waiting for this for a decade previous to her marriage.

Scarole obviously never thought beyond getting the ring, she should have prepared Waity better because now, any effort she makes at public speaking is excruciating. She's a disaster.

I remember Diana at age 19 or 20 when she was newly married or engaged and she did a speech in Welsh I believe, she was adorable and sincere, everyone loved her all the more for making such a brave attempt.

Then we have The Waiter.... bignono

The irony is, that she ended up not prepared since she oddly likely thought that it was a long shot that it would happen. I don't think she was trained since she wasn't considered a serious contender by the palace. She wasn't brought under the palace wing and she was not at all trained by her mother mainly since it wasn't though speeches and a career that she met and managed to hold it, it was due to major bedroom acrobatics. I think her fear of public speaking is a sign of regression and not any phobia. It's also part of her act of being an insecure waif who basically is unable to handle the world.

^ Kate was probably told by Ma that all she has to do is show up.  Dummy probably didn't get it through her think head that with the title comes a JOB (maybe sound waves don't transmit through horse hair extensions?).
Not long after her wedding, Diana delivered a speech in Welsh and the same mannerisms, inflection, tone, and gestures - which were excusable for an inexperienced 20 year old - are copied to the letter by Kate today.  She has no identity of her own; and as much as I want to say how pathetic that is, Kate simply does not care.  She sealed her own fate by saying in the engagement interview that she does not care what other people think.

She thinks she is invincible. Sadly, that was said about the Titanic, and look what happened to that.  Nothing and nobody is invincible.

It could well be that Kate can't (and won't due to immaturity) handle the actualities of situations; she couldn't handle facing the RF after her nude scandal and she can't handle the press covering her at all and she keeps retreating to a regressive safe space that enables her to remain immature. So she doesn't spend time studying, but in hiding and frankly it shows. Her 'fear' is no different than that of an untested child who has no business being married, much in the role of consort or patron of charities.

Royal expert: Duchess Kate needs to make more public speeches, like Meghan

Quote
For years, it’s been known that the Duchess of Cambridge hates speaking in public. I’m not going to get into the nuances of whether it’s a “fear” of public speaking, or whether she’s just never bothered to take public speaking lessons and work to master a vital part of her role as a public figure. We don’t know which it is, we only know that Kate barely averages one speech a year, and her speeches are never very good. Meanwhile, the Duchess of Sussex is very comfortable on a stage with a microphone. Meghan gave three speeches during The Royal Sussex Tour, and she’s already shown herself to be legitimately keen on communicating. So, take it away “royal expert” Camilla Tominey:

    Meghan Markle recently returned from a royal tour of Australia after marrying Prince Harry in May. Meanwhile, last month the Duchess of Cambridge marked her return from maternity leave after giving birth to son Louis in the spring. As she resumes her solo royal duties, eyes are on how she copes with the demands of public life. However, royal expert Camilla Tominey has expressed one concern.

    Speaking on Yahoo’s The Royal Box, she stressed her “huge respect” for Kate Middleton but argued that she lacks confidence in public speaking. Meghan’s career as an actress, meanwhile, has put her in good stead for dealing with the spotlight.

    “Meghan’s put herself out there,” Camilla says by comparison. “As modern women, we can’t have the Duchesses of Cambridge or Sussex as princesses who are seen and not heard,” she adds.

    Camilla, who is Associate Editor of the Daily Telegraph and NBC’s royal expert, also reveals that she has spoken to members of the royal household several times about Kate. She added: “I’ve said on a number of occasions, get her confidence up!”

    Host Kate Thornton sympathises with the Duchess’ fears, saying: “It must be terrifying.”

    However, Camilla explains why it is crucial that Kate overcomes her nerves.

    “It’s important for her as a future queen,” she argued. “We need her to be on a world stage. Kate’s got a great deal to offer on her own terms, not just as Prince William’s wife.”

[From The Daily Express]
https://www.celebitchy.com/599983/royal_expert_duchess_kate_needs_to_make_more_public_speeches_like_meghan/#comments

I think at this point, that Kate should be told to do speeches or lose more privileges. I am also sure that she should be past a fear of public speaking and should be doing her duties. She's no shrinking flower when it comes to taking her clothes off, calling the press, leaking to the press, or anything much else. She hasn't had issues trying to push people around or avoid work or shop til she drops. So she shouldn't have issues making a simple public speech.

As for much to offer, I disagree. She hasn't brought anything to her marriage and she hasn't even tried to better herself. By now she should be doing speeches as a matter of routine and there shouldn't be anything special about it. Second, she has no place on the world stage since she has no international connections, she hasn't built a base of goodwill anywhere in her country, and since she hasn't done anything for her nation, she would have nothing to stand on, on the world stage. The rest of the world has no time for her, nor do they have any patience. It's not like she's done anything remarkable or came into her marriage with status of her own. Even after all these years as consort, she still has nothing to offer her inlaws or her nation, much less the world.

Maybe they are not interested in that type of persona for Kate.

I think reality has set in, in a way that didn't previously exist. I think WK thought they would launch on the world stage and basically become superstars and so shirked doing the day to day routine. The first seven years of their marriage was all about jet setting and going all global and were stirring up all the drama in the world and just couldn't seem to control themselves. Now, with the hard fact that they have to work drilled into their heads, now they've settled down into real life and they are not going to up and destabilize things anymore. I think someone sat them down and explained some hard facts and they've accepted them. At their age, real life has set in and since neither accomplished anything exceptional, they've settled into an unexceptional life. William has accepted that he has to do his duties, Kate has accepted that she isn't some icon and has to work, and she isn't going to get treatment that is above her current position.

Maybe they are not interested in that type of persona for Kate.

Or maybe she refuses to do it; I think the  BRF would prefer to have her get out and make speeches and have a shot at pulling her weight. She should be doing appearances, she should be doing speeches, and she should be building enough leverage that in the event of a divorce, she will be able to argue for an office and staff of her own so she can continue her charitable work that she has established. There is no way that she is entitled to be supported by the taxpayer without doing her tax appointed duties and there is no way that she has any business being marketed as an incapable snowflake who has to be coddled.
