^ Nothing to see besides what I just described - and me stoically staying within the boundaries of civility.  wopedo
I know we're off topic - but I was just trying to make a point about how badly Kate needs to be trained to NOT laugh like my co-worker. Or even this guy:

^ Praise of KM can be as over the top as the one for MM. Both would be wrong because they are done for sycophantic purpose and not because there is any unusual merit involved on either side.

It may or may not be time for KM to lob off her hair (I am afraid she's not one to look good with short locks).
But it sure is high time for someone to send both her and her sil back to aristo school for some remedials on demeanor, posture and overall self-presentation. 

Funny how nobody taught her that exaggerated, overly affected facial expressions (like prolonged grins with mouth wide open) are not bon ton and definitely not becoming for anyone, least of all for a royal. 

They are very much crass and lowly.

I have a co-worker who does this in spades and her face literally begs to be punched. Or at least - her hair pulled (for someone of a milder disposition). She's in luck - what with all this civilization and civility.

She rolls her eyes in meetings in a very exaggerated manner, expresses outrage and feigns being stunned at the stupidest statements; she opens her mouth really wide and keeps it open in this incredibly annoying oval "O" shape to express shock. The oval stays open for what seems like weeks. 
Or she laughs out loud kicking her head back. Huge grins, etc.
She's a crass attention-begging machine. 

They need to teach this crap in aristo school, really. Lord  knows these 21st century ersatz princesses need it.

       

Her hair can be trimmed without looking two short. She's done that "O" expression for years. She was mugging at a horse race with "O" open mouth like she never saw a horse before.

agree... syncophancy is syncophancy  ... people who are sycophantic towards kate or meghan wouldnt care for them if W & H hadnt married them... probably would bash them for everything and more... i think syncophancy  towards meghan quite funny because she's defended for same reasons that kate and camilla are bashed... imo kate is dull and bland and stupid but with someone so over-the-top as meghan around it's easy to see good points and qualities in kate... as for camilla, along chuck, she made her bed long ago, but appears have more worthy charities than 2 stupid wags who married Diana's sons.

I hope Kate never have a very short hair... i think long hair suits her

If it's not trimmed it gets more scraggly looking. And a trim would not necessarily make it short hair. She had shorter hair but still long and it looked better than when it was too long. She also looks better when it's all pulled back. IMO anyway.

^Agreed. She's grown out of that security blanket hair unless it's trimmed, styled back or up.

But, to stay on topic, the most important thing I see is how vitally important it is to not spend one second fiddling with any part of your total look while on a public visit.  The whole point is to showcase the charity/cause and be appropriately attired.  Grooming is key.  So is looking interested, being engaged and listening.  Lots of listening. 

The art of conversation is a tricky talent.  Not everyone does it well but preparation is key and knowing the players and which questions to ask.  Each event is usually a blur of faces, flashbulbs and distraction so it requires poise, confidence and knowledge to pull it off professionally.  The only trait that trumps all of the above is a genuine, empathetic heart and start quality aura.  We do not have that here so be a good Scout and "Be Prepared."

Kate's better than she was but there's a lot of maturing still needed.  Not having your uncontrolled hair enter the room before you do would be at least one wise move for her.

If you watch video of the events, you do not see prolonged grins.  This is a by-produce of still shots that make fleeting seconds appear to last forever.

She has the open mouthed laugh and always has. Even in videos. She tends to gurn and make faces.

Kate Middleton visits Lavender Primary School in Enfield

The Duchess of Cambridge joined in a game of show-and-tell with primary school children today - bringing along a photograph of her family as the object that ‘makes her happy’.

Kate, who wore a bespoke version of a £2,100 Eponine dress and £295 L.K. Bennett boots, brought with her a photograph of her family as she joined Lavender Primary School pupils sharing objects that represent 'something that makes them feel good'.

Sitting down with a table full of of youngsters in Enfield, north London, the royal opened up her Mulberry clutch bag and told them: ‘I’ve got something. It’s not very big. Do you want to see it?’

The comments are over the top fawning by some. So cloying to read I feel I just had an overdose of sugar.

A massively overpriced dress that looks like a shapeless bag. The photo is the same photo used as their official Xmas card so hardly special or personal. She is MUCH better with kids than she used to be however.

It's funny how some are complaining about the prices of her clothes being publicized. As if the image of her shopping at second hand shops or K Mart is something that people want to believe about kate.
