Hi, I just heard and rushed over here to post it! shaz you got there first! lol so we are going to have Queen Kate! God bless her and all who sail in her! oops, sorry that's a ship launch! all I can say is, I hope she has more luck than poor old princess Diana!
Love, ah a love -- they must have love each other to have lasted for seven years..Yes I read about them and she is beautiful -- both of them - good looking. A simple and beautiful commoner with a prince..They will make a beautiful King and Queen pair...
Days succeeding their wedding, the world will be watching many news about them etc..and for a little span of time we will be diverted to another world. I am tired of political news etc.
It will be a feasting frenzy for the media. The Government will love this, it means the media will have someone else to pick on and scrutinise! I hope Kate is strong enough!!
I think us commoners need to keep positive about them and knock the media when they start their negativity nonsense. We need to keep in mind, how the media helped to destroy a vulnerable girl who knew no better as she grew up in a very strange whirley world of ups and downs (talking of Diana).
Human behaviour, and the media demonstrates this, is to kick someone when they are already down. It is like a pack mentality, engorging on other people's suffering (horrible!).
I've been out of the country for so long, it all seems pretty uninteresting.
I heard the wedding has to take place next year, so as not to over-shadow the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012. Diamond? What?!!! I still remember her Silver Jubilee as though it were yesterday. How time flies. How fast life passes.
No, your not a nincompoop. I often mention that I'm in Germany, because I often reply to a Forum Post or whatever from my perspective here in Germany. So, people could easily imagine that I am actually German.
No, I don't know Get Well Soon; I'll have to look them up. I've always loved any project that has anything to do with Pete Doherty, although I'm never sure whether it's to do with the music itself or his charisma.
Nah... they wont have a choice! That is the problem in being a royal - you are just a 'figure head' that will do the right thing for the country. It is how they have been wired to be from cradle to death and know no different. Good there are some mud blood to help with the gene pool (they had a terrible problem with madness a century or so ago).
It's good for the country - even if you dont give a f now, you WILL be sucked in! It is a fore gone conclusion hehehe
Here in Germany, they even have entire magazines about them. I think they are probably the most interesting of royal families, and keeping up with the events of their lives is a bit like following a soap opera ... maybe that's why.
isn't that odd.. maybe it's the whole royalty thing.
I don't follow gossip and could really care less who is doing what, but there is something about the royal family that is rather intriguing. The princes are the same age as my sons. in fact my oldest kind of looks like William...
anyway, I'm happy with the news. I hope she understands more fully than Princess Diana did what she is marrying into.
That is fabulous news! Prince William and Princess Kate are entirely different people than Prince Charles and Princess Diana. For one thing -- Prince William isn't shagging a cow named Camilla Parker Bowles (at least I sincerely HOPE NOT -- that would make the royal soap opera even ... weirder, eh?). The world has had time to adjust to William and Kate as a couple. And I think the world (and England) like and respect William -- probably a lot more than they ever have his father.
To be safe, tho. I wouldn't take Diana's ring. *shudder* Bad karma there, eh?
I've never been a "big royal watcher" (US - who can blame me.. ), but I've always kind of paid attention to William and Harry because Diana's babies and my own babies were kind of matches in ages. So, somehow, I've just paid attention and always know exactly how old each of them is.
I'd imagine they'll televise a wedding; but (maybe I'm wrong) I somehow have the feeling the world (and maybe "The Royals") has become at least a little smarter after the whole Diana thing.
Of course when Charles married Diana he was air to the throne. Thirty years on, he's still heir to the throne. And given that the Queen's mother lived to be 100, twenty years hence Charles could still be waiting.
This succession game went to pot when kings stopped leading armies into battle.
I dont actually think Charles wants the responsibility of being King (I dont actually think he wants the responsibility of being Prince, either, but he has no choice in that one!). It might just skip him and go to William anyway.
Like they said, she has a lot more going than Diana did at first. She is better educated and worldly and she does not seem to have as many insecurities. I am sure it is William's choice to marry her, no one else's.
Also, she has been given a lot more time to adjust. And hopefully the press learned a lesson from Diana.
Like having children, you know that there is a hard task ahead, but until you do it, you don't actually know how hard that task is! Kate seems well groomed for the job and has had a faultless record of behaving as a royal should over the last nine years. She is a great choice.
How difficult would it be to buy a wedding present for someone like Prince William or Kate Middleton.Well like lots of couples they have created a Wedding Present request listIn lieu of Gifts one can donate to The...
Next week she will be a member of the royal family. But Kate Middleton proved she's as down-to-earth as the next girl when she went on a shopping trip on the King's Road in London. The bride-to-be spent 20 minutes in...
