As for William's deployment to the Falklands, last I heard he'll still go despite worsening of situation with the Argentines...
There's no worsening of a situation,there's just a few moving a lot of air,that's all.Will be of no effect on William going on a mission.

I thought he's going for training rather than a mission. Is that not so? Unless training is a mission.

His deployment is part of his training. There is no 'mission'.

Everyone keeps forgetting that she is also taking 'Princess Lessons'. She probably would'nt do that in wales. I'm sure she spends most of the week in wales, then a few days in London with those lessons, and more than likely she is studying things that has to do with the charity/patron work. They don't just go to places and shake hands. They learn about what each organization does, who does it, who it helps, how she can help them do better or more through her position... there is a lot to it I imagine, besides learning whom to curtsy to etc.

Point is that AFAIK the regiment was not named for Diana but is a regiment in honour of the dynastic position of the wife of The Prince of Wales as the future queen. It is true that Catherine's mother-in-law, William's mother was The Princess of Wales during her marriage to The Prince of Wales but that has no consequences when it comes to Royal honours or other herediary rights. In that case, the only important point is that William as Catherine's husband is the heir to The Prince of Wales and thus she is in apparent line to become queen consort one day if she lives to see William's ascension and is still married to him.

At least the duchess of Cambridge will have nothing but sun and fun and be able to escape London weather and the royal duties for a little while.

I wonder if it's true that she's on vacation. There are no pictures and it does seem an odd time to go away.

Great sweater! And retail therapy is so much better, for some of us, than the kind on the couch - you actually get to take a great sweater (or in my case, handbag) home with you!

I am looking forward to Kate actually doing some work (aside from movie or theater premiers).

Didn't the Middleton family always do some kind of a vacation around this time of the year? This really is probably the best time for Kate to get away for a few days of relaxation and its really nice for Kate to be able to spend some quality time with her family.

Once February (which I call the Month of Mondays) sets in, William has his trip to the Fauklands as his main priority and I think we'll see Kate starting to do some royal engagements on her own or with HM. The rest of this year is going to be quite busy with the Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 Olympic Games

Problem is that with a Royal you don't actually see them "working", you only see them at their engagements. Or do you wait till you see her serve cocktails to HM's guests dressed in a nice maid's uniform?

Few galas, concert, premiere, Christmas, NY's break and now vacations. I never consider Kate as a hard-working woman but now she's part of RF and should show that she really deserved for this. I was hoping that she will start work with her patronages but I was wrong. I'm disappointed with her.
