Kate Middleton Prepares to Launch

You don’t think the Royal Family starts you out bashing a bottle on a new aircraft carrier in downtown London, do you?

Kate Middleton, soon to be Mrs. Prince William, christened a lifeboat for the RNLI at Trearddur Bay, North Wales yesterday.  It was her first official outing with William.

She did fine:

“It wasn’t difficult to imagine the stylish Miss Middleton carrying off her debut to perfection, much as she did on the day she high-stepped down the St Andrew’s catwalk as a student in a little see-through number. And so it proved — Kate even managed a word-perfect recital of the Welsh national anthem.”

The RNLI is the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, “the charity that saves lives at sea.”  It’s an all-volunteer group that provides 24-hour lifesaving around the coasts of the UK and Northern Ireland. So good on them, too.
