I have had Kate fans tell me that in all seriousness she was carrying the ciggies for someone else.

I've never heard anything about the Queen smoking. I heard that the Queen Mother enjoyed her cigarettes but this was top secret.

I doubt Kate would tell children in a public appearance (for all to hear and report) that she never smoked, if there were even the slightest chance someone from her past would speak up and call her on her honesty.

Yep, that must have been it.

I truly respect and find the women fascinating, but that would explain her teeth.

I don't find it absurd that some think she may have been carrying the cigs for someone else. I've held cigarettes for friends and I don't smoke.

In the 10 years that she's been photographed, I've only seen one photo of her with cigarettes (they were in her purse), so I truly have no idea if she smokes or not. If she does, then she's incredibly good at hiding it, or maybe just an occasional/social smoker.

Social smoking, in today's day and age. The habit is disgusting, unhealthy and invasive. No one in this country, that I know, smokes, socially. It is forbidden in most public places and not extolled as an asset. Camilla's teeth and Queen Margarethe's teeth are ungodly, but you pick your own poison.

People refuse to believe that women hold stuff for their friends in their purse

Really I know more than a few people who smoke socially on both sides of the Atlantic. They do not smoke on a regular basis but if they meet up with friends at a bar patio and someone is smoking they will bum one or as we say they smoke OPs (other peoples) and the next day they do not smoke.......until they next time in the same scenario. I always wondered how they could pick up and drop the habit so easily.

It seems to me like it is the "royal" thing to do. I find that a lot of royals smoke. From many different houses.

Recently I watched a report from the US that said that recent stats showed that the cases of hospitalization from heart and breathing conditions dropped by 40% once the new laws were introduced forbidding people from smoking in public places.

My mother only stopped smoking when they found a heart tumor the size of a tennis ball. She had to have open heart surgery. She was happy to continue whilst she perceived all was well with her but took no notice of my hospital visits with breathing difficulties and advice from doctors begging her to stop smoking when I was around.

I have very low tolerance for smokers and their freedom to smoke in the presence of others, especially children.

I did too, when I was younger; I don't smoke myself but I willingly carried them for other people.

But I wouldn't do that today, since I have become so anti-smoking!
It's lovely that smoking is now banned in bars and restaurants; I never realized how much I hated it until it was stopped!

I'm with you on this. I grew up around smokers, and find the habit beyond repulsive. My great-grand mother was a chain smoker, and no matter how many people told her that it was hazardous to her health, she still continued. The smell in her apartment was atrocious. Now I understand why I had colds and upper respiratory infections so very frequently as a child. Now, I'm all for freedom of choice, but those to whom people look up to should be careful in terms of what habits and life choices they're promoting with their own actions. I'm not sure if Catherine smokes (I do remember hearing that William did at one point), but I certainly hope that now, for the sake of her child, she dropped the habit like yesterday's trash. No child should be harmed by second-hand smoke, especially from their parents.

Ugh the righteous anti smoking crowd. If you dont smoke fine, but leave those who do alone; it's their habit their body. Smoking inRestaurants and public places should not be allowed, but infringing on someone's car and home is another. As long as these monarchs don't smoke in public I see no reason they should have to stop just because they are royalty.
I heard Europe isn't so anal about smoking and allow people to kill themselves in peace.

I noticed recently that the Prince of Wales website has an answer on the FAQ as to whether or not Camilla smokes. They must have gotten tired of being asked.

The official answer from them is she quit several years ago.

I had one aunt who did not smoke, but she lived with another aunt and uncle who smoked. She was the one who died of lung cancer. So consider who else is in the home before saying it is all right to smoke at home. Only if you are a bachelor or live with another smoker is it all right to smoke at home.
I smoked a little at work (nervous there), but I quit when I nearly passed out many years ago.

I am both annoyed and shocked that members of the public would make these inquiries about Royals smoking. It is not anyone's business, PERIOD. What is next, their personal toliet habits?

If I see it right, this picture shows Hereditary Grandduke Guillaume of Luxemburg smoking at the wedding of Princess Madeleine of Sweden.
