The wedding dress seems a bit too loose on top, but it is very pretty and suits the bride (who looks to be a somewhat angular woman).

Even though I think the top looks a little large she gets bonus points for wearing a rather unique dress. At least it's not one of the ubiquitous strapless ones that make everyone look the same.

Apparently this is a family heirloom dress which she wore.

Agreed - that lace is delicious.

Why do people still refer to her as Kate Middleton when she is now HRH Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, she is longer a commoner, but married into royalty

It's not so much people that do it - it is the tabloids. They excell at INhuman.

The BBC is a left wing rag.

It's a term of endearment

My experience as a media writer tells me it's actually a simple answer and not one designed to be disrespectful, but rather to be expedient and to fulfill the objective of the article/story/headline.

Everyone knows the name Kate Middleton.

The name "Duchess of Cambridge" is not as immediately recognizable and requires an additional descriptor such as "wife of Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge" or some such.

"Duchess Kate" or "Duchess Catherine" is (a) wrong in terms of style and (b) wrong in terms of how it sounds, it has an "off key ring" to the ear, if you will.

She is not yet a Princess so that cannot be used.

YMMV

Duchess pays tribute.

Duchess of Cambridge 'saddened' at death of 15-year-old boy she met on Far East tour | UK News | Express.co.uk - Home of the Daily and Sunday Express

Sad story. I'm glad the Duchess was able to make this little boy's dream come true

A number of posts have been removed.

Discussion topics ranging across eating disorders, anorexia, muscle mass, unhealthy athletes, Jennifer Lopez and Christina Hendricks have little or no relevance to the Duchess of Cambridge current events.

Thanks for everyone's understanding and cooperation.

No but the BBC is a mouthpiece for the left and the socialists.

According to the CC, Catherine does not have any engagements in November. She is not even listed as attending the service of laying wreaths on Remembrance Sunday, though she will obviously attend. Sophie is listed as going, so I found it odd that Catherine wasn't listed.

I have always found it strange that William & Catherine isn't listed in the official engagements on the Monarchy site. They are listed in the Court Circular though. I think they should be added in the official engagement list on the main site as well. Charles & Camilla is, so why not William & Catherine?

They are. Their recent tour was listed and past engagements have been as well. The list rarely gets updated for engagements that appear within a few weeks of the event happening. Things that are planned well in advance appear on the engagements list.

The listing of Future Events for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge/Prince Harry and the POW and Duchess of Cornwall involve a number of offices - hence the different notice/timing before hand. The Prince/Duchess have their own office. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge do also - but also coordinate via the Prince of Wales' office.

And then Welcome to the official website of the British Monarchy aggregates everything.

No wonder some appearances have a longer lead time than others.
