The duchess reopened a couple of parks in Berwick.  I enjoyed the video as you can see she is very lively during a ribbon-cutting (after they got her something which would cut the darn ribbon!  :happy15:

Also, just a minor point, but I'm pretty sure Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon wasn't known as Queen Elizabeth I -- that was the title of the 16th century Queen Elizabeth.  Since George's wife was not the actual ruler, she isn't given a I, II, etc. numerical modifier.  She was just Queen Elizabeth, and then after her husband's death, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.

Oh dear. I'm afraid I must disagree with that... Queen Elizabeth I, was never seen as just the wife of King George and the mother of Queen Elizabeth II-- just ask any of her 350 patronages! 

I'm sure she was very important to the 350 charities that she was patron of, but if you were to ask the general population ... those millions of people on the street, which is who I assume we're talking about when we say "remembered as" ... what is she remembered for, they would probably say she is remembered mostly as the mother of the current Queen and the wife of George VI.

And of course, we know it took several decades for her to reach that number of 350 charities.

What about Queen Maxima of the Netherlands (an economist who has served on international committees for the UN,) or Queen Letizia, journalist and nationally known anchorwoman before marriage, for two?

I was really just referring to the British in my post.

What you say is undoubtedly true, but don't forget that both Maxima and Letizia were considered unsuitable choices at the time of their (respective) marriages, and some still regard them in that way.
I'm not saying it is due to their careers, of course.  But...there it is, as the Emperor would say.   :shrug:

If you work part-time are you not allowed to list your job as your occupation? I think you can.

And of course Kate is a Princess of the UK--she is Princess William as well as the DofC. Camilla is also the Princess of Wales, but chooses to use her DofC as her tiltle. I'm still a grandmother even though the kids call me Nana.

And frankly, I'm not sure what Kate could do about it.  Even if she does as many engagements a year as HM, she will still be known in the history books as Will's wife and George's mother.
