The People writes that Prince William is planning to propose to Kate Middleton - using one of Princess Diana's favourite rings to seal the engagement. He has asked Earl Spencer permission to give the ring to Kate.

I thought William and Harry would have inherited their mother's ring. Why would the Spencers be involved? If anything, William would have asked his father.

It is Diana's family that are the executors of her estate, not Prince Charles. Perhaps the ring is one of the items that have been on display at Althorp and as such, Earl Spencer would have to relinquish it to William. Assuming the story has any truth to it at all....

Because, as far as we know, that's what she is. If you have hard evidence to the contrary (by which I don't mean insinuation and innuendo by tabloids), feel free to provide it.

Doesn't it say in Diana's Will that all her personal jewels were left to her sons?
I hope the story is not true. Diana's engagement ring should be in a museum. There is something freaky about the idea of someone else wearing it, like wearing a cursed ring or something.

Exactly. That's what I like about you, Elspeth, right there with me on the Harry Potter wavelength.

But speaking of Kate Middleton (as if I needed an excuse)
Since she is right there somewheres in between Ex and Girlfriend, hanging out in TRF on a limb, not quite back to her old thread but rather misfit in the Ex Partners orbit..........
Here's the latest from Just Jared: Pics of Kate at Seychelles airport.... HQ pics, woohoo!!

Maybe I am wrong but I think the people who don't follow Kate but other ex-partners will be more excited then us if we ever we get our old thread on Kate back. :)
Thanks for the pictures CasiraghiTrio! Now if we just get one of them together in the Seychelles...

No the pictures are new. the devil is in the details
Kate is wearing the exact same outfit. BUT

Your pictures show Kate at an Easy Jet counter. And she has two duffle bags with a white carryon.

Casiraghitrio pictures show Kate at an Creole Travel Services counter. Creole travel servces is the the premier ground handling operator in the Seychelles at least according to their website.
And her two pieces of luggage are also I think different this time. One but I think both are suitcases not duffle bags.

AndI have now proved it. I have way too much time on my hands. LOL

Good work, cde. I guess this outfit is her "airport outfit". It looks cozy enough for traveling.

I don't put it past the paparazzi/tabloids to try to trick us, which I'm sure often happens (or at least they try) but I think even they aren't thick enough to suppose we'd be that clueless, least of all us regular Kate Watchers!

Straying from the Kate Watch........ I found these old pictures of some ex-girlfriends of HRH the Prince of Wales. The source is Rex.
Lady Sarah Spencer Is the woman in head scarf Her Majesty?
Lady Sarah again looking so pretty
Jane Ward and Prince Charles Many others of Miss Jane Ward: 2 3 4 5
Sabrina Guinness
Sabrina Guinness and Prince Charles
Lady Jane Wellesley
Susan George meeting Prince Charles again in 1991
Anna Wallace
Jane Ward and her daughter in 2004 (those shoes, that outfit!)

Only one question for whomever, or for the void: Why did Prince Charles so often wear the same sweater to watch polo with his various girlfriends?

Once it was a love affair between a royal prince and a comely commoner that simply reached what many took to be its natural end. But today, Kate Middleton is formally back in the royal fold, her wide, open-mouthed smile as unrevealing as ever about what she's really feeling. The Queen is exasperated by what she sees as future difficulties for her grandson, William and the former air stewardess's dark-haired daughter whom he met at St Andrews University. Her private dream is that her grandchildren do not make the same mistakes that wrecked the domestic happiness of three of her children. She has told close friends that William and Kate, having split up once, could do so again. Even though she is fond of Kate, she feels William could be making the wrong decision, especially as he confided to her and Prince Philip in the spring that he did not think he loved Kate enough. Has Kate become too much like Diana? | the Daily Mail

Bettina Ødum

I read in a newspaper (???), that Crownprince Frederik was together with Bettina Ødum in 2001. Wasn't he together with Mary Donaldson after the Olympic Games in 2000? Got I a wrong information? Did he has two girlfriends at the same time?

From the Daily Mail piece Kaffir posted:
The real reason, you might think, was that Kate Middleton was in danger of antagonising the public by her selective approach to personal publicity, and that since she is back with Prince William, this is hazardous for the royals.

I hate this part. Shouldn't everyone in the world (except politicians, who aren't really human, after all) have a "selective approach to personal publicity"? What is wrong with Kate or anyone for that matter liking the fun attention of a nightclub but hating the stalkers outside her home?! Everyone, especially royalty, need to draw more lines when it comes to the paparazzi. The paparazzi goes too far! It's one thing to take pictures of someone, another thing to be outside their private home, follow them to work, follow them to lunch breaks....

This article says that Kate Middleton is going to pursure an artistic career as an abstract photographer.

Kate Middleton quits her job to pursue photography career

"Now that her romance with Prince William is firmly back on, Kate Middleton is turning her attentions to her career. The 25-year-old, who has been working as an accessories buyer at Jigsaw, wants to become a professional photographer.

Kate, who has a degree in history of art, told friends she is unhappy working a three-day week at the High Street store and wants a new challenge."

Kate Middleton quits her job to pursue photography career | the Daily Mail

"She really wants to move and is seriously thinking about a career in photography. She loves cameras and has a great eye. She has already started putting an exhibition of her work together."

A career as an abstract photographer is more in keeping with the type of job you would expect a young woman who is dating a prince to have. I really believe that her relationship with Prince William is back on track.

I think this career change and the fact that Kate has received her own security pass to Clarence House are signs that she and Prince William are dating. Taking her on a vacation to the Seychelles is a good indication that they are dating also.
