Kate sends message of support to SportsAid

Kate Middleton is still out of action – but may be back on October 10 for a reception at BP – so for now I guess we’ll take what we can get from Kate. Today’s edition of ‘I’m actually a bit bummed that Kate is MIA’ comes from SportsAid: Kate sent a message of support to SportsAid for their second annual SportsAid Week.

Kate Middleton writes birthday message for a patronage she hasn’t visited in 17 months

Yesterday, I was checking my Twitter feed and kept seeing photos from a gala that the SportsAid Twitter account was retweeting. That gala was in honor of SportsAid’s 40th anniversary/birthday which is today. I thought to myself that that gala would have been a great event for SportsAid’s Patron, The Duchess of Cambridge, to attend since it’s an easy one to show up for, get her picture taken, meet people, and leave. No hard work there. But alas, Kate skipped the event that she, as Patron, should have attended. I wondered if Kate would do anything at all for one of her patronage’s big milestones, since SportsAid has seemingly gotten the shaft for the last 17 months, and she has. She wrote a message congratulating them on their milestone.

Duchess Kate at SportsAid athlete workshop

As Patron of SportsAid (since 2013), Kate Middleton attended the SportsAid athlete workshop at the GSK Human Performance Lab yesterday, November 12. The Duchess of Cambridge was there to see thirty 16-20 year old athletes take part in a series of scientific assessments on respiration, temperature, power, cognition and body composition designed to help them reach their goal of attending the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020, or the Paralympic Games in PyeongChang in 2018. Paralympic wheelchair athlete David Weir CBE attended the workshop as did Olympic swimmer Keri-anne Payne, who gave a mentoring session.

Four new appearances announced for Kate

It’s that time of year again, folks. That time when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s press office realize that Prince William and Kate Middleton haven’t done hardly any work in the UK, and stuff their calendars full of last minute appearances to boost their yearly numbers. It’s happened every year since they were married. Both Will and Kate have announced four new appearances for the next eight days. Plus, as I was in the check-out line I read a Globe article that was funny, so I thought I’d share.

Kate, Will, and Harry at the Commonwealth Games

Kate Middleton poked her head out of it’s hidey-hole for two days of sports watching and game playing. Kate, along with Prince William and Prince Harry, ventured to Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games on July 28 and 29. On July 28, the Royal Holy Trinity watched a bunch of different sporting events. On July 29, the RHT toured the athlete’s village and met with some UNICEF kids and played games; Kate also attended a SportsAid reception/meeting/thing. Kate mentioned George to champion swimmer James Hickman, he said Kate said George “loves the water and he grabs things to splash with.” George is (probably) a little terror, so it’s not surprising he’s a menace during swim time. If he channeled that energy into something productive he could be a champion swimmer. Getting George into sports early might help with all that energy.

Kate makes a ‘glamorous’ charity appearance again, this time for SportsBall

Kate made an appearance at a charity ball last night in aid of SportsAid, one of her charities.  SportsAid “helps the next generation of British sports stars by giving them financial support and recognition during the critical early years of their careers.”  I must say, Kate really seems to shine when she does any sports-related charity work (and by “work” I of course mean “appearances”).  I found one quote from someone Kate talked to very interesting, she said: “I’ve met Kate before during the Olympics, she’s lovely and so interested and supportive of athletes [emphasis KMR].”  I truly believe this.  I also truly believe this is one of the only things Kate really is interested in.  I don’t know why Kate doesn’t focus more of her patron work on sports-related charities.  She bullsh-ts around with addiction and bullying* when the only thing Kate has ever showed any actual interest in** is sports.  You know, there are so many things she could do if she focused on sports, and helping youths and disabled people through sports.  She might actually do sh-t if it involves sports, but then again this is Waity we’re talking about, so maybe not.
