Kate Middleton loves a good deal!
She may be just months away from joining one of the world's wealthiest families, but a source tells UsMagazine.com that Prince William's bride-to-be hasn't ditched her commoner roots.

A space between her teeth? Wouldn't that have shown in the photos taken in St. Andrews and since?

You would think. Like I have said in another thread, now we are writing William and Kate stories just to write stories. No substance.

And I doubt this will be the last of such stories. The "journalists" concerned are just warming up.

This might be a new low but it will get a lot lower over the next 60 or so years of this woman's life so she had better get used to it.

Absolutely. This unfortunately, is what tabloids do to fill column inches.

We have to remember as well that tabloids, like any products, sell only if people want them. As long as there's a market for this stuff, it will be printed. It's up to the readers.

Of course, and we have seen over the last 30 years or so that the negative side of royalty sells better than the positive - a story about the couple having a arguement is going to sell better than a story about them enjoying watching a movie together.

Prince William will keep them out of the lime light. He does like his privacy. I think he is following in his grandparents footprints to begin his married life away from the press.

The teeth stuff came out right after they graduated. I wondered when it would be brought up.

The story about Kate's dental work is just annoying. It is perfectly reasonable to have dental work of that type, and it is not newsworthy.

Indeed. That story is just stupid. Let's assume it's true & like many people in this world she's had dental work done, had she not had it done then the media would just complain about how "bad" her teeth were & that she should get them sorted out, lol! Can't win. It's just a stupid story for the sake of a story trying to conjur up something vaguely controversial just to stir up their readers one way or another.

The problem is that the royals sell and if they aren't doing anything newsworthy then the press is free to ferret out stories and even to create them from nothing almost - so long as they quote a 'palace source' or 'sources close to the couple'prince/princess/family' then they can run with it. They know that the palace won't do anything.
