While a third commented, 'This is what's so precious about Prince William and Duchess Catherine, it's never about them and never do they make a huge fuss about what they have lost or cud have gained. They graciously take little sweet moments like these of general people and mightily champion them. This is what we've seen in the holdstill project and all their other campaigns. Original ideas cause they listen to people. If world leaders were like these two, what a beautiful place we wud have lived in. Absolute blessings The Cambridges.'
