So I was attaching this to my previous post, but Kate’s message has been released and it’s pretty long so I thought I’d just make a whole new post for it.
Kate Middleton dropped out of a planned engagement today that was not previously announced. I guess Kensington Palace had planned for Kate to go, but never actually announced she would attend because they are reviewing her appearances on a case by case basis because she’s still suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum due to her second pregnancy and they aren’t sure how she’s going to be feeling for each engagement.
Kate was supposed to make a visit to the opening of the new Art Room and Barlby Primary School – the charity’s ninth venue. Instead, Kate sent a message of support:
“I wanted to share my congratulations with you all for the launch of the new Clore Art Room. I was looking forward to joining you all for this particularly special day as part of The Clore Duffield Foundation’s 50th Anniversary year.
“I am truly sorry that I cannot be with you all today as you celebrate this milestone. As Patron of The Art Room I feel great pride to see the work that the charity is doing. Vulnerable children flourish in the safe havens that The Art Room provides; this highlights just how important it is to support children at a time when they most need help and support.
“This partnership with The Clore Duffield Foundation is a significant moment for The Art Room. As I cannot thank the Foundation in person today, I would like to extend my thanks to Dame Vivien and her Foundation for supporting a cause so close to my heart, and making such a transformational facility available to the children of Barlby Primary School.
“It really is hugely exciting to look to a future with even more Art Rooms, where the lives of many more challenging and vulnerable children will be transformed. I hope that you have a wonderful afternoon. My sincere apologies for not being able to join you but I hope that I will have an opportunity to visit Barlby and see the Clore Art Room soon.”
Wow, that was a great message. Congrats, Rebecca Deacon, on writing such a well worded and specific-to-the-charity message of support.
Yeah, I’m not really believing the HG excuse any more, but sure KP, keep claiming that. You just keep right on claiming HG right up until the public gives absolutely no sh-ts about Kate at all.
There was a previous report from “royal aides” that there were planned engagements in October and November for Kate, but that they hadn’t been announced. This was one of them, and she pulled out. I wonder if Kate will actually make any appearances in the next two months. We’ll probably have more of these types of announcements in the future. Sigh.
