Do you know where I could find a video version of the speech the queen was making where you posted the gif about her discussing how she jumped out of the helicopter?

Here's the speech, and here's the actual sketch! :)

The Cambridges Tour Australia and New Zealand

Day Seven:

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a Palm Sunday service at St. Paul’s Anglican Cathedral  Dunedin.

Next, they visited  Forstyth Barr Stadium to watch and participate in ‘Rippa Rugby’.

The next stop on their busy day was the Amisfield Winery in Queenstown.

Their final stop of the day was a trip on the Shotover Jet on the Shotover River, also in Queenstown.

Interesting! I did not know that. More fodder for the “is she A princess” debate.

Well she is Princess William. Her connection to the Royal House is through a Prince.
She is a Princess, it’s just that Duchess is the preferred title within the BRF.
It’s more elegant than Princess William.

That’s my view. She’s not Princess Kate, but she is “a” princess. It’s not incorrect to call her one. But technically Duchess in her case is higher than princess. But people still like the term princess better, and probably always will!

Also a royal dukedom is higher than being a prince, thus why they use the more elevated title. Since Duke of Cambridge is Prince William’s highest title, she uses the Duchess of Cambridge. Same as it will change if/when William is made Prince of Wales, etc.. though in that case she would just be Princess of Wales and not Princess Catherine, Princess of Wales.

Very good points! I wonder if she will be called Princess Catherine when she does become Princess of Wales, as it still has such a heavy connection to Diana.

I think it really doesn’t matter. People will still call her Princess Kate, now and when William becomes the Prince of Wales

Kate has blossomed since assuming the role of Duchess of Cambridge when she married Prince William in April 2011.
“Kate is very confident now. She’s learnt a lot from William. I remember that first tour, he was all the time saying ‘are you OK? do you feel comfortable with this? do you feel all right about that?’. He steered her through those early days,” Edwards said.
“I remember asking her once when we were in Copenhagen how she was coping and she said ‘I just want to support him. I don’t want to let him down’. But it’s beyond that now. They’re now a team and work as a team.”
