^

They have been instructed to pull their socks up and do some work instead of living their lazy indulgent lives of perks and priviledges which have been getting up the public's noses big time. The public are tired of seeing their grinning, gurning faces in the best seats at the best events.  Why not let those less priviledged have them.  Word out from those close that they have sneaked off on yet another vacation.

^^ and ^^^

Yes. agree with both of you.  The joke of it is she appears to have very little, or no bond, with the sprogs, Nanny Maria is their "mother figure".    She never appears to be a sprog lover anyway, and the kids can always pick up on that.  Why are her engagements mostly on short notice, is it that Anne can´t go and she is being sent along to fill the gap?  Would not surprise me one bit.

The  Wales branch of the family always announce their public engagements at short notice if at all.

The British monarchy website doesn't usually announce theirs or Andrew's - only from Edward down in the line of succession plus the Queen's and Philip's.

One reason is security.

Just because it is only announced a week or so beforehand doesn't mean it is only scheduled then.

All visits have to have a lot of planning such as a full security visit - usually at least a month in advance, followed by a logistical analysis by the security situation they have uncovered and then another reccy a week or so before the visit to check things are in place.

In most cases the place being visited is aware of who is visiting at least six months in advance. The royal diaries are usually arranged between six and twelve months except in exceptional circumstances such as a death overseas that will see someone have to make changes to go to the funeral or an illness in the family.

As for Anne on that day she has two meetings and a lunch in her schedule.

I would think anyone would prefer Anne to visit instead of council cath  - a commoner of the lowest order.  Anne actually is very good with children, seen her many times with her grandchildren, she loves it.  Cue over to council cath, can´t even bond with her own sprogs, they are always looking for the nanny, who as it happens appears to be in hiding these days.

If I was a parent I would not be taking my child there with counicl cath present, no way, would rather stay at home from work if I had to than let them be in the vicinity of the Curse of the medds. Everything they seem to touch these days turns to ashes.

And why would anyone want Council Cath? She is incapable of speaking intelligently on any subject at hand. She never prepares for any event. She is a freak in her appearance. The only way she would be good to be out in the public would be as a side show of weirdos at a circus. Give me Princess Anne any day. She knows her stuff and knows how to properly get the job done.

Yes, very interesting little bit at the bottom of that article

KATE'S TOPLESS PHOTO CONTROVERSY 
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently seeking £1.3million compensation over topless photos of Kate   +12
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently seeking £1.3million compensation over topless photos of Kate
On Tuesday Prince William was been accused of hypocrisy and cashing in on his celebrity status by a lawyer after demanding £1.3million compensation over topless photos of his wife Kate.
The Duke of Cambridge said the images were 'all the more painful' as they reminded him of the way his mother Princess Diana died.
But a lawyer for the French magazine Closer, which printed the images of Kate sunbathing in the south of France in 2012, blasted the crippling payout demand.
Lawyers for the couple outlined their demands on the first days of a criminal court case in the Paris suburb of Nanterre, where six defendants face trial.
Mr Veil told the town's Correctional Court that both William and Kate had suffered massively from the sneak long-lens pictures taken while they were on holiday.
Mr Veil said the compensation represented an 'Anglo-Saxon level of punitive damages'. In France, 'Anglo-Saxon' means British or American.
The couple also want the local newspaper La Provence to give them £42,000 for running similar images, but with the Duchess’s breasts covered up.
He said they deserved damages and compensation amounting to 1.5 million euros (£1.3million), to add to 'significant fines' against the guilty parties.
But the defence barrister for French Closer magazine, which faces the pay-out, in turn accused the Royal couple of trying to make money out of their celebrity with ‘punitive Anglo-Saxon damages’.
Paul-Albert Iweins said couples in France were always being pictured while out using sun cream during their summer holidays, and branded William and Kate as ‘hypocritical’.
‘Their public and private lives are so intertwined as to be inseparable,’ Mr Iweins told the court.
Mr Iweins said the proposed compensation was particularly ridiculous considering the multi-millionaire couple’s wedding at Westminster Abbey in 2011 had been watched by ‘two billion people’.
The request was made by their French barrister, Jean Veil, on the first day of a criminal case in the Paris suburb of Nanterre in which six defendants are on trial.
Neither the prince or his wife, now a mother of two, were in court yesterday, but they are known to be following proceedings from the UK. Yesterday was the second birthday of their younger child, Princess Charlotte.
The long-lens images of Kate, taken as they sunbathed on a terrace at the chateau, covered the front and inside pages of France’s Closer magazine in September 2012 alongside an article about the pair entitled ‘Oh my God!’.
The lawyer said William and Kate also wanted £42,000 from a French local newspaper, La Provence, which published the pictures a week before the magazine without showing the duchess topless. Marc Auburtin, the paper’s publishing director at the time, and photographer Valerie Suau also face trial.
All the defendants are charged with invasion of privacy and complicity, but deny causing any damage. They say the pictures were taken from a public place and were ‘not in the least bit shocking’. Both photographers have denied taking the photos, with Closer refusing to say who was responsible.
All the parties submitted evidence to the court yesterday followed by discussions in private.
Judges will now take the submissions away for consideration with a verdict handed down on a date yet to be fixed.
According to experts, this kind of procedure is fairly common in ‘sensitive cases’, where a case must be seen to be heard in court but much of the work is done behind the scenes.
Sources also say that although the couple are seeking a hefty figure in court, the reality is normally very different. French privacy actions usually yield a few thousand pounds maximum – and can often be just a ‘symbolic’ euro or two – with the idea being that the injured party wins morally, and not financially.
A Kensington Palace spokesman said it could not comment on an ongoing court case or if any damages would be given to charity should they win.

^Oh no, couldn´t do that, that is reserved for Australia, New Zealand, Canada and any other country other than the UK  -  we are only the mugs who pay our taxes to fund them, from nappy to incontinence pads.  Poor families struggling, but still have to pay their taxes.  And what do they do?  As little as possible.  We are not fit to see the sprogs, we only pay for them.  Having said that, they can keep them stashed away for me, I find nothing appealing or cute about either one.

Rebecca English‏@RE_DailyMail  
Kate revealed today that she has five chickens at home - and an incubator of eggs that George and Charlotte are excitedly trying to hatch.
Kate also said she is trying to teach #PrincessCharlotte Spanish - and #PrinceGeorge can already count to ten in the language.
Kate also revealed she held a party for #PrincessCharlotte's second birthday yesterday - and she sang Happy Birthday to herself! Sweet.

Living the Good Life! Kate reveals she and William keep a menagerie of animals including FIVE chickens as she joins inner-city kids at a farm in Gloucester (and says that George can already count to ten in Spanish)

I have read elsewhere that they are as fluent in Spanish as in English at this point due to Maria's influence. I have also heard that Spanish is often the first language George uses rather than English. They are actually being raised as bilingual and that isn't a bad thing - just that Kate seems to be taking the credit rather than giving it where it is due - to the fact they employed a Spanish nanny.

Does she even know spanish at that level? Because if it is the same as her french...

But seriously why not a french nanny? It would have looked so good to the canadians.

Why do the sprogs need Spanish language? A second language shouldn't be the most important than mother tongue. If so they seem to spend a lot of times with Maria and not with their parents.
