Catherine has such a beautiful, and engaging smile. It's a pleasure to see it.

Actors and actresses met Queen Elizabeth II and Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge, at the Buckingham Palace| Spletnik.ru

It is nice to see Prince Michael attending the event alongside the senior British royals. I wonder where all senior royal men are.

Her Majesty's dress looked flimsy and budget. Catherine's, The Duchess of Cambridge, smile was too American.

The Express has written an article that actually describes the event. I am pea-blinking green with envy!

How can a smile be too American? That doesn't even make a little bit of sense.

The following is the explanation. The rules about smiling apply to most CIS countries.

How Do You Know When a Russian Is Smiling?

That is so ridiculous. Americans smile, especially in the south, because we are warm and friendly people, which is not fake. I am sorry you believe in this when it is complete rubbish.

Perhaps Russians don't smile because they are miserable and cold because of the cold and long winters they have.

That blog was just ridiculous. Talk about lumping people together and generalizing unfairly. It sounds like it was written as Soviet propaganda from the late 1980s.

Yes it completely does.

Seriously "The smile is too American" takes the cake for the most nonsensical criticism I've ever seen of the Duchess of Cambridge.

Here are your gold stars for utter absurdity, Al_bina, and my gratitude for the hearty laugh.

I've been thinking this all night about Al_bina's posting...To the tune of "Any Dream Will Do" from Joseph and the Techicolour Dreamcoat...

"Any dig will do..."

I've seen some really far reaching digs at Catherine by you over the years, but this one takes it for sheer laughablity. Good grief!! Also managed a rather nasty swipe at HM too. A new record I think.

I thought HM looked wonderful tonight and clearly enjoying herself and the company of her Grandaughter in Law and Cousin. Also loved the video where we learn where HM's BAFTA is and the bantering of HM and the Actors. Priceless!!

You mean she smiles like an actual human being instead of a robot.

Considering the British stereotype about Brits having bad dental work and teeth, a smile like an American might be a complement .

It looked like a fun evening. I wonder where the rest of the royals were? With all the big stars attending I would have thought more royals would have come out.
